Transcript: When you read an academic passage, there are several steps you can follow to ensure you have an understanding of the text. You can break each paragraph into a few key elements: The topic The five most important words in the paragraph The main idea New vocabulary Americans, adults and children alike, are being seduced. They are being brainwashed. And few of us protest. Why? Because the seducers and the brainwashers are the advertisers we willingly invite into our homes. We are victims, content -- even eager -- to be victimized. We read advertisers' propaganda messages in newspapers and magazines; we watch their alluring images on television. We absorb their messages and images into our subconscious. We all do it -- even those of us who claim to see through advertisers' tricks and therefore feel immune to advertising's charm. Advertisers lean heavily on propaganda to sell products, whether the "products" are a brand of toothpaste, a candidate for office, or a particular political viewpoint. Two or three words that describe the overall subject of the paragraph What words can you "see from space?" What are the high frequency words? What are the OMG words? The main idea is different from the topic. The main idea is more than the topic. The main idea contains the topic, but it also contains the central idea. The main idea is an author's point about a topic. Are there new words? Are they important? The Topic Write some words A Reading Template The Five Most Important Words New Vocabulary The Main Idea

Transcript: Conclusion The Main Characters by Lois Lowery Opinion The Setting I absolutely love this book. It is a story of heart and morality. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a book about questioning how you think about things. Plot Jonah is a boy of 12 years old. He is about to get his job, what he will be assigned to to for the rest of his life. This story is set in a futuristic dystopian version of the American society. The world is a world of no fear, no anger, and no pain. The people who live in this world have an interesting way of life. There are no parents. When children are born they are given to Nurturers, who will care for them like parents until they become adults and move out on their own. At 12, children are given assignments that they will carry out for the rest of their lives. Jonah receives the job of Receiver. This means that he is going to meet with The Giver and be given all of the memories of the past. This is painful information that Jonah will have to learn to deal with. As he begins to learn this information new to him, he begins to see his "perfect" society in a different light. The Giver Jonah learns too much about what the world used to be and how his so called "perfect world" has corrected these issues of pain and suffering. He can no longer live in this world knowing what he knows and all of the things that he is missing. You see, since his world has no memories, or feeling, that eliminates the good with the bad. The people do not feel happy, or delight, or even love, and when Jonah realizes he does not want to live without all this, he leaves to go... somewhere.
