Performance Task
Inferences:
Symbol:

Theme

coming to a logical conclusion without actually eye witnessing or having first hand knowledge of certain events.
Inference Examples:

1. The baby was asleep upstairs in his bed. Suddenly, I heard a loud, "THUMP!" and he began crying hysterically. I ran upstairs because I inferred that he fell out of bed.

2. In third grade, you cannot be promoted to fourth grade unless you pass the final exam. My classmate said she was going back to third grade again. I know she's got o.k. grades, so I inferred that .......

3. Just because the famous actor was seen in a jewelry store, all the tabloids inferred he's going to ask his singer girlfriend to ________________________?
Using the poem from yesterday:
3. The word that best summarizes the mood established by the description of the poem's setting is

B “the sun sifting through / the leaves in panes of light” (lines 35–36)
C “a thicket of blanket and shining hair” (lines 43–44)

2. Which of the following explains the husband’s mood?
A He can speak some of the local language.
B He has had some good luck.

1. From the description of the immigrant husband cooking on the grill (lines 23–30), readers might infer that he is feeling
A worried about his family.
B uncomfortable and angry.
C sad and homesick.
D relaxed and happy.

3.. In the poem, the infant is compared to “a treasured sack of rice” (lines 40–41). The use of the
adjective treasured to describe a sack of rice suggests that the family
A has experienced hunger and deprivation.
B is in the grocery business.
C is from a country where rice is not valuable.
D values rice as much as they value their children.

4. Based off the information we learned yesterday about the Chinese Exclusion Act and the details in the poem, do you think this immigrant family will be happy in America? (Cite Text Evidence in Your Response.

Silent and Individual Work Time.
Performance Task Due At end of Day With a paragraph containing 2 pieces of Text Evidence. (8-12 sentences)
A collar of water
surrounds the park peninsula
at noon.
Voices are lost
in waves of wind
that catches a kite
and keeps it there
in the air above the trees.
If the day has one color,
it is this:
the blue immersion of horizons,
the sea taking the sky like a swimmer.

The picnickers have come
to rest their bicycles
in the sprawling shade.
Under each tree, a stillness
of small pleasures:
a boy, half in sunlight,
naps with his dog;
a woman of forty
squints up from her book
to bite into an apple.

It is a day an immigrant
and his family might remember,
the husband taking off his shirt
to sit like an indian
before the hot grill.

He would not in his own language
call it work, to cook
the sticks of marinated meat
for his son circling a yarn
of joy around the chosen tree.

A bit of luck has made him generous.
At this moment in his life,
with the sun sifting through
the leaves in panes of light,
he can easily say he loves his wife.
She lifts an infant
onto her left shoulder
as if the child
were a treasured sack of rice.

He cannot see her happiness,
hidden in a thicket of blanket
and shining hair.
On the grass beside their straw mat,
a black umbrella,
blooming like an ancient flower,
betrays their recent arrival.
Suspicious of so much sunshine,
they keep expecting rain.
Silently, On the back of your handout from yesterday, answer the Do Now.

1
. What do the lines “Under each tree, a stillness / of small treasures” (lines 16–17) refer to?
A people enjoying the shade in different ways
B toys that children have left under trees
C tiny plants growing beneath the trees
D picnic baskets people have placed under the trees
2. What two literary devices are used in lines 34–37, “At this moment in his life, / with the sun sifting
through / the leaves in panes of light, / he can easily say he loves his wife”?
A repetition and hyperbole
B end rhyme and alliteration
C onomatopoeia and assonance
D consonance and cacophony

3
.Which image from the last stanza of the poem suggests the idea that the family has come from a country that has a very old culture and a rainy climate?
A “his son circling a yarn / of joy around the chosen tree” (lines 31–32)
B “the sun sifting through / the leaves in panes of light” (lines 35–36)
C “a thicket of blanket and shining hair” (lines 43–44)
D “a black umbrella, blooming like an ancient flower” (lines 46–47
4.What idea about the family is reinforced by the statement “Suspicious of so much sunshine, / they
keep expecting rain” (lines 49–50)?
A They dislike sunshine and look forward to the arrival of bad weather.
B They enjoy their new life, but they are aware that things may change.
C They have come from a rainy country, and they are wary of sunshine.
D They cannot enjoy their good fortune because they fear their luck will change.
With a partner,

Post-it Poetry: Silent and Independent
for Candy!!
Write a poem about your shadow. (Some ideas for brainstorming: How does it change when you move? What does it look like in different kinds of light, in different situations? What would happen if you lost it? Does it have a secret life?)

You Have 2 Choices:
Write a poem about something that happened to someone you know. Write about it as if it had happened to you.
1st stanza - 'Voices are lost in the waves of wind' - when people go to the beach and they get to really think about something meaningful, they don't hear anything and they forget everything that is around them.

2nd stanza - 'The picnickers have come to rest their bicycles in the sprawling shade.' - the people who go to picnic rested their bikes in the shade.

3rd stanza - 'Under each tree, a stillness of small pleasures' - this basically sums up these lines because they as they go on they talk about a boy napping with his dog and a woman reading her book so when they say small pleasures, they mean people are doing what they like to go and they are relaxing and being care free.

4th stanza - 'It is a day an immigrant and his family might remember...' - this stanza is basically saying that an immigrant and his family are going to remember finally relaxing and letting all their worries go and just focusing on having a good time at the beach all together.

5th stanza - 'He would not in his own language call it work, to cook...' - people in this world always say immigrants are only good for work but they look at it as fun because they love cooking.

6th stanza - 'At this moment in his life, with the sun sifting through the leaves in panes of light, he can easily say he loves his wife.' - this stanza is saying that he can finally be happy and okay with everything instead of constantly worrying.

7th stanza - 'Suspicious of so much sunshine, they keep expecting rain.' - this line of the poem is talking about how these immigrants are having the time of their life and finally not getting caught but since its been such a long time without being caught they are getting worried.
