What did you annotate? What is it actually saying? Quote it.
What is the meaning? What is your interpretation?
So what? Why is this important? Why may it be significant for readers?
What is chunking?
Chunking is the process of grouping parts of the texts together to understand their meaning
It's good to split up the text in order to understand it!
Chunking helps you manage what the text is saying without being overwhelmed.

It helps you by breaking up the texts into pieces to understand their meaning
Activity 12: Considering the Structure of the Text -- Guided Chunking

Circle the word that best deribes what McBride's purpose is in the paragraphs. In other words, what is he doing?
Activity 13: Analyzing Stylistic Choices
Directions: Find the quotes and figure out which words have been substituted. Write the author's language in the space provided. Explain how the author's word choices affect the overall tone of the piece.

Stylistic choice: _____________
Activity 13 Example
1) Stylistic choice:
high stepped

Explain how the word affects the tone or purpose.
The word "high stepped" sounds almost like a dance move and because of that, it relates to the text. It gives an image of how far he would go to avoid hip hop. It sounds fast.

McBride's essay which best represent the main ideas you are most interested in. You will use these two quotes for your response paragraph.
