Transcript of EDU 519 Modified English Lesson Seth Tendler

Tendler's English 3
Warm Up
Get with your elbow partner and read and discuss the ideas in the background information. Be sure to take notes!


From the opening scene of Tempest during the storm, when the ruling courtiers on the ship must take orders from their subjects, the sailors and the boatswain, Tempest examines a variety of questions about power: Who has it and when? Who’s entitled to it? What does the responsible exercise of power look like? How should power be transferred?

Students will do quick writes and brainstorms utilizing the website https://bubbl.us/ to discuss themes of power in Shakespeare’s Tempest in order to write ECR’s analyzing power structures and roles
Activity 1ECR Analysis:
Students will analyze the ECR Prompt:
In Tempest, power manifests itself in many different forms. Three of the main types of power that Shakespeare explores are the power of love, the power of magic and illusion and the power of a master over his slave. Choose one power and then choose one or two passages from the list and explain a type of power explored in Tempest and how it affects the plot and characters of the play.

1.1 / 1.2.361-439 / 2.1.197-366 / 2.2 / 3.1.46-111

Begin by choosing a passage and then ascribe what type of power is discussed once you do that write about the questions above presented in the background information. Be sure to provide textual examples to support your ideas.

Activity 2 Brainstorm and Digestion of Ideas:

Students will go to their computers and access the website https://bubbl.us/ Once there, they will create a brainstorm of their ideas from the warm up. Students need to have at least 3 main ideas and six total sub ideas. When done, students will get with a partner and share their ideas with each other for 3-minutes.

As you read your text of the Tempest be sure to wear lenses of colonialism and post-colonialism while you annotate the text.

Objective Assessment: Exit Ticket with thesis

Students will create an outline from their brainstorm on Microsoft Word to organize their thoughts and fill in the blanks of supporting evidence and quotes. Students will then do a 10 minute quick write for their introduction and thesis. Students should concentrate on their hooks and main ideas to create their thesis.

If students are having trouble the can use the sentence starters work sheet to aid in their writing.
