Changing Narrative Writing to Expository Writing Activity 1.14 Extra Credit:
Choose one of the topics on the Anticipation Guide and research the history of this issue in the 20th and 21st centuries. On p 40 Complete "Anticipation Guide: Going to the Zoo" Read and do number 2 - 4 with your face partner. Read and do number 1 on p 41. Read "Word Connections." Read number 5. Remember this strategy as we read the story. A is to B
as
C is to D We will be looking for these elements in the story we are reading. Let's review what we said goes into making a good narrative. As we read the first chunk of the story you will be looking for the answers to these questions.
You might want to take notes in the "My Notes" section as we read. Read number 1 on p 42. Read "Grammar and Usage" on p 43 clause: a group of words with a subject (who or what the sentence is about) and a predicate (action the subject performs). A simple sentence is one independent clause. Sentences may have compound subjects and compound predicates. A compound subject consists of two or more nouns or pronouns linked with a coordinating conjunction. A compound predicate has two or more verbs linked with a coordinating conjunction. A compound subject or predicate does not change the essential structure of a sentence. A simple sentence, for example, may have a compound subject and a compound predicate. coordinating conjunctions = FANBOYS (for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so) Go back through chunk 1:
In the "My Notes" sections write what his life was like before he was captured.
Also put stars next to words and phrases that let you know how Willie B. is feeling.
List these feelings in the "My Notes" section.
In the "My Notes" section explain why Willie B. feels the way he does.
Also list his "Likes" and "Dislikes." We will read chunk 1 on pp 43 - 44. Make sure you are answering in complete sentences. Now transfer the necessary information from the "My Notes" section to answer number 1 on p 42. What coordinating conjunction is there in this sentence?
Looking at this example, what punctuation comes before a coordinating conjunction?
What is our subject?
What is our predicate? “Granted, grass is not the ideal afternoon snack, but they tell me I’m getting older now and have to watch my weight.” (par. 1) What do you notice about the punctuation in this sentence?
What kind of sentence is this?
What is the subject?
What is the predicate? "I come from lands you’ve never seen; lands with such dark and rich hues of green that you could never imagine them." (par. 2) Material in parentheses is called parenthetical, which means “put in as an added note or explanation.” Parenthetical information is not essential to the meaning of a sentence. You enclose the following types of material in parentheses when they write:
• comments or information that they do not wish to emphasize
• material that is only loosely related to the rest of the sentence
• a sentence that occurs within a sentence. Read "Grammar & Usage" on p 44. oWhat are they putting in brackets/parentheses?
oHow does this information connect with sentence?
oHow does this information enhance understanding?
oWhy wouldn’t it be good to include this information in the writing without brackets/parentheses? Let's look at the last paragraph on p 44. Go back through chunk 2:
In the "My Notes" sections write what his life was like in the zoo.
Also put stars next to words and phrases that let you know how Willie B. is feeling.
List these feelings in the "My Notes" section.
In the "My Notes" section explain why Willie B. feels the way he does.
Also list his "Likes" and "Dislikes." Let's read chunk 2 on p 45. oWhat are they putting in brackets/parentheses?
oHow does this information connect with sentence?
oHow does this information enhance understanding?
oWhy wouldn’t it be good to include this information in the writing without brackets/parentheses? "See, I came here very long ago [Willie B., was brought to the then-Atlanta Zoo in 1961]." (p 45) oWhat are they putting in brackets/parentheses?
oHow does this information connect with sentence?
oHow does this information enhance understanding?
oWhy wouldn’t it be good to include this information in the writing without brackets/parentheses? I suppose you live and you adapt. Rafiki [“friend” in Swahili; he is obviously referring to Charles Horton, his keeper for the last 20 years] took care of me. Now transfer the necessary information from the "My Notes" section to answer number 2 on p 42. Be sure to write in complete sentences. One sentence needs to be a compound sentence (one that uses a semi colon). Go back through chunk 3:
In the "My Notes" sections write what his life was like in the new gorilla habitat.
Also put stars next to words and phrases that let you know how Willie B. is feeling.
List these feelings in the "My Notes" section.
In the "My Notes" section explain why Willie B. feels the way he does.
Also list his "Likes" and "Dislikes." Let's read chunk 3 on pp 45 - 47. oWhat are they putting in brackets/parentheses?
oHow does this information connect with sentence?
oHow does this information enhance understanding?
oWhy wouldn’t it be good to include this information in the writing without brackets/parentheses? I remember when my life changed, when I was allowed to embrace the submerged part of myself that is the Silverback gorilla. (In 1988, ten years ago, Willie B. was introduced to a new habitat; a spacious area outdoors in a section of the zoo called the Ford African Rain Forest.) One night, Rafiki brought me here, to my new sleeping quarters. A while later, I noticed an open window leading through the wall. What coordinating conjunction is there in this sentence?
Looking at this example, what punctuation comes before a coordinating conjunction?
What is our subject?
What is our predicate? What coordinating conjunction is there in this sentence?
Looking at this example, what punctuation comes before a coordinating conjunction?

Looking at this example, what punctuation comes before a coordinating conjunction?

What is our predicate? Well, of course, I could have destroyed it any time I wanted; but I do understand the art of the sell. Now transfer the necessary information from the "My Notes" section to answer number 3 on p 42. Be sure to write in complete sentences. One sentence needs to be a compound sentence (one that uses a semi colon) and one needs to be parenthetical (with parentheses). Go back through chunk 4:
In the "My Notes" sections write about the relationship that Willie B. has with people.
Also put stars next to words and phrases that let you know how Willie B. is feeling.
List these feelings in the "My Notes" section.

What kind of sentence is this?
What is the subject?
What is the predicate? Tomorrow, you will see me again, perched at the top of my hill, methodically plucking grass snacks and pondering mysteries that I will not share. Using all of the notes that you took in the "My Notes" section on pp 43 - 48 fill in the graphic organizer. Read the "After Reading" section on p 49. In addition to the requirements listed you must:
Use no less than five of the new words that we have learned in this activity.
Use no less than two compound sentences.
Use no less than two parenthetical sentences.
Have a topic sentence that clearly states your (Willie B.) attitude about living in captivity. Read the "Writing Prompt" at the bottom of the page. A possible reflection starter is:
In a narrative you ... , but in an expository you ... . Read the "Reflection" at the very bottom of the page. How do writers use different types of writing to express their ideas? Let's look back at one of the Essential Questions: After reading, you may transform the narrative into a poem. Extra Credit: W_____
