ABOUT THE AUTHOR...
Except for six months in Wyoming, I've lived my entire life in California. It was during those six months in Sheridan, Wyoming that I came up with the idea for Thirteen Reasons Why. I've worked at an independent bookstore, a chain bookstore, an outlet bookstore, and two public libraries. Before those jobs, I worked at a shoe store, a trophy shop, and an airline. My very first writing award earned me a free fruit smoothie every day for a year. I've won a lot of awards since then, but that one tasted the best!
"Hannah's story changed Clay's life. It has the power to change many more." —Lauren
"When a book actually affects the way you breathe, you know it is powerful. When a book changes the way you look at life, you know it is nothing short of spectacular. Thirteen Reasons Why is that book. I cant think of anyone who shouldnt read this book. You will hurt, you will smile, and you will never be the same." —Dianna
"This book changed the way I look at the world... at the people around me. It was drastically life-changing, especially since I can relate to Hannahs emotions. I will always love this book. It teaches the reader to be careful about what they do and how they act. It can also help those in a similar situation, or those who know someone suffering. Definitely worth reading." —Maya Dom
“This book changed my life. Gave me more hope. And I encourage people to read this book. Especially my best friend, because for a while I saw her as Hannah. Without this book Im not sure Id have the courage to stand up like I can today.”
In one paragraph, discuss the emotion(s) being depicted above. This will be collected.
How would you respond (or what advice would you give) to someone who was being bullied or picked on.

Key fact or stat.
How will you use it in your writing?
Is there another card you'll use it with?
“One's dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but it can never be
taken away unless it is surrendered.” - Michael J. Fox

“Life is a fight, but not everyone’s a fighter. Otherwise, bullies would be an endangered
species.” –Andrew Vachss

“Bullying builds character like nuclear waste creates superheroes – It’s a rare occurrence
and often does much more damage than endowment.” – Zack W. Van
Think about these statements as they relate to your own thoughts and experiences when it comes to bullying.

We will be writing an essay explaining whether you believe bullying is a necessary part of growing up and builds strength and character or if it is a destructive force that can and should be dealt with however possible.
EXPECTATIONS...
By the end of today, SWBAT demonstrate a growing understanding of a good thesis statement and begin brainstorming their ideas.
HOW: Quietly & On-task
HOW LONG: 10 minutes
REVIEW...
What is a thesis statement?
Write a paper explaining if you believe bullying is a necessary part of growing up and builds strength and character or if it is a destructive force that should be dealt with however possible.
FREE WRITE ACTIVITY...
When you freewrite, you let your thoughts flow as they will, putting pen to paper and writing down whatever comes into your mind. You don’t judge the quality of what you write and you don’t worry about style or any surface-level issues, like spelling, grammar, or punctuation. If you can’t think of what to say, you write that down—really. The advantage of this technique is that you free up your internal critic and allow yourself to write things you might not write if you were being too self-conscious.
http://writingcenter.unc.edu/handouts/brainstorming/
FREE WRITE ACTIVITY...
When you’re done with your set number of minutes or have reached your page goal, read back over the text. Yes, there will be a lot of filler and unusable thoughts but there also will be little gems, discoveries, and insights. When you find these gems, highlight them or cut and paste them into your draft or onto an “ideas” sheet so you can use them in your paper. Even if you don’t find any diamonds in there, you will have either quieted some of the noisy chaos or greased the writing gears so that you can now face the assigned paper topic. Even you are saying nothing. Word must follow word, no matter the relevance.
The crucial point is that you keep on writing even if you believe you are saying nothing.
“This paper is supposed to be on the politics of tobacco production but even though I went to all the lectures and read the book I can’t think of what to say and I’ve felt this way for four minutes now and I have 11 minutes left and I wonder if I’ll keep thinking nothing during every minute but I’m not sure if it matters that I am babbling and I don’t know what else to say about this topic and it is rainy today and I never noticed the number of cracks in that wall before and those cracks remind me of the walls in my grandfather’s study and he smoked and he farmed and I wonder why he didn’t farm tobacco…”
Write a paper explaining if you believe bullying is a necessary part of growing up and builds strength and character or if it is a destructive force that should be dealt with however possible.
WHAT: Free Writing
HOW: Silently & Independently
HOW LONG: 10 minutes
Get out your note cards. Once class time has started, if they are in your locker/etc you will need to bring them later for partial credit. Complete the multiple choice questions silently and independently.
HOW: Silently
HOW LONG: 9 minutes
EXIT TICKET...
I will be collecting your DO NOW/EXIT TICKETs from Monday & Tuesday. Your thesis sentence from today should also be on this paper.
Don't worry if you were absent...I keep track of attendance. You are only responsible for what you were here for.
Get out your SIR card and your Free Write from yesterday...
Break Down Your Free Write...
Cubing enables you to consider your topic from different directions.
Describe it
Compare it
Associate it
Analyze it
Argue for and against it
(how does it fit with your claim?)
(what are you saying?)
(make connections!)
(dig a little deeper...)
Writing a Hook...
Shocking statements
– a startling statement can attract people easily to join the conversation. By using this type of essay hook, the reader can actually impose an idea to the reader that would either shock or provoke him...
Literary quote
– this type of hook is mostly used in articles that are not fictional in nature...
Quotes from famous people
– a popular and famous personality may have more authority and influence as compared to others. Writing a quote from a famous person’s speech or writings can become an essay hook as well. For instance, you can write a quote from Mahatma Gandhi’s speech while writing article on non-violence...
DO NOW...
Reflecting back on
Perks
, Brooke's YouTube video from last class, and other examples that may come to mind, discuss why people often write these types of communication.
WHY DID HANNAH SEND TAPES?
Write a paper explaining if you believe bullying is a necessary part of growing up and builds strength and character or if it is a destructive force that should be dealt with however possible.
Shocking Statement
Literary Quote
Quotes from Famous People

A School Board is concerned that the state's requirements for core courses in mathematics, English, science, and social studies may prevent students from taking important elective courses like music, other languages, and vocational education. The School Board would like to encourage more high school students to take elective courses and is considering two proposals. One proposal is to lengthen the school day to provide students with the opportunity to take elective courses. The other proposal is to offer elective courses in the summer. Write a letter to the School Board in which you argue for lengthening the school day or for offering elective courses during the summer, explaining why you think your choice will encourage more students to take elective courses.
Begin your letter: Dear School Board:

Regular tune-ups of your heating system will cut heating costs and will most likely increase the lifetime and safety of the system. When a service technician performs a tune-up, he or she should test the efficiency of your heating system.

The technician should measure the efficiency of your system both before and after servicing it and provide you with a copy of the results. Combustion efficiency is determined indirectly, based on some of the following tests: 1) temperature of the flue (or chimney); 2) percent carbon dioxide or percent oxygen in the atmosphere; 3) presence of carbon monoxide in the atmosphere; and 4) draft. Incomplete combustion of fuel is the main contributor to low efficiency. If the technician cannot raise the combustion efficiency up to at least 75% after tuning your heating system, you should consider installing a new system or at least modifying your present system to increase its efficiency.

Adapted from Alex Wilson and John Morrill, Consumer Guide to Home Energy Savings. ©1993 by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.
REFERENCE YOUR NOTES...
1. The passage suggests that the presence of carbon monoxide in the atmosphere:
A. can provide information regarding combustion efficiency.
B. is found in 75% of heating systems tested.
C. can be reduced by decreasing heating system draft.
D. is the main cause of low efficiency in heating systems.
E. is more reliable than flue temperature as an indicator of combustion efficiency.

2. According to the passage, when performing a tune-up of a heating system, the service technician should:
A. ensure that the combustion efficiency is at least 25%.
B. modify the heating system before initially measuring efficiency.
C. measure combustion efficiency both before and after servicing the system.
D. provide his or her supervisor with a written report of the system's efficiency.
E. ignore the age of the heating system.

...the last time I found myself this close to a person slowly dying was the night of the party. The night I watched two cars collide in a dark intersection.

Then, like now, I didn't know they were dying.

There were a lot of people around, but what could they have done? Could they have done anything at all?

AWARENESS...
Suicide (i.e., taking one's own life) is a serious public health problem that affects even young people. For youth between the ages of 10 and 24, suicide is the third leading cause of death. It results in approximately 4600 lives lost each year.

Deaths from youth suicide are only part of the problem. More young people survive suicide attempts than actually die. A nationwide survey of youth in grades 9–12 in public and private schools in the United States (U.S.) found that 16% of students reported seriously considering suicide, 13% reported creating a plan, and 8% reporting trying to take their own life in the 12 months preceding the survey. Each year, approximately 157,000 youth between the ages of 10 and 24 receive medical care for self-inflicted injuries at Emergency Departments across the U.S.

Suicide affects all youth, but some groups are at higher risk than others. Boys are more likely than girls to die from suicide. Of the reported suicides in the 10 to 24 age group, 81% of the deaths were males and 19% were females. Girls, however, are more likely to report attempting suicide than boys.

If my love were an ocean,
