Common Core ELA 10 1.2-1
Transcript of Common Core ELA 10 1.2-1
This unit consists of 13 lessons that focus on character development and how this development contributes to the central idea of the text. The introduction to the major characters allows students to analyze their interaction and development from the beginning of the story. In this lesson, students begin their exploration of Ethan Canin’s short story “The Palace Thief,” from “I tell this story not for my own honor” to “and therefore I called him to my office” (pp. 155–160), in which students are first introduced to the history-loving narrator Hundert and his problematic student, Sedgewick Bell.
A masterful reading of the text excerpt allows students to revisit and further develop the annotation skills that they were introduced in 10.1.1. Next, students analyze the complex nature of Hundert’s character, including the passion he feels about his profession and his field, and the impact he hopes to make on his students. Students also investigate the first impressions of Sedgewick Bell from Hundert’s point of view, where the author establishes the foundation of the relationship between teacher and student. Using the Details Expansion Tool to aid in an evidence-based discussion, students examine how word choice and details help contribute to their understanding of Hundert as a complex character. Students are assessed through a Quick Write, in which they are asked to analyze how the character of Hundert develops in this passage. For homework, students continue to read their Accountable Independent Reading (AIR) text through the lens of their focus standard.
In Partner Pairs discuss and share how you applied the focus standard to your AIR texts
