American Literature

Unit 1: Narratives
Eleven by Sandra Cisneros

The Bike by Gary Soto
Unit 2: Argument
Claims and Coming to America Questions
Coming to America

Essential Questions:

What effect did immigration have on America and the lives of the settlers?

How did relocating to America change the lives of the settlers?

How did the settlers change America as they lived and interacted with the land and the people already living there?

Quick Write:
What effect has being an American had on your life?

Feel free to answer this question in any direction. If you're stuck, try answering the following questions:

Think about anything you know about your family and your history in America. Do you know why you came here? What would be different if you hadn't?

What privileges and freedoms do you have as an American? How might this change if you lived elsewhere?
Protocol: Write the ENTIRE time. Don't plan. Just keep your pen moving and write whatever you're thinking. If you run out of things to say, write about that.
Skill Focus: Using Multi-Draft Reading Strategies to make sense of various texts
First Draft Read:

Look for historical details. What clues do you get about the time period, society, values, or culture? Circle these details.

Answer in your notebook: What do you know about the time period, society, or culture?

Second Draft Read

Look for craft decisions (metaphor, simile, rhymes, alliteration, personification, etc.). Highlight these details.

Answer: What effect do these decisions have on the audience or on other elements in the text?

Third Draft Read:

Look for the main idea. Bracket lines or key phrases that express the main idea.

Answer: What is the author’s view on immigrants and immigration? What details lead you to uncover that?

Answer: What does the author reveal about American Values?

Multi-Draft Reading
Greek Colossus
From The General History of Virginia
Lines 1-17: Highlight the main problem
Underline phrases that describe Wingfield's behavior
Bracket the main ideas

Lines 18-41: Underline where Smith talks about himself. Why does Smith talk about himself in the 3rd person?

Lines 42-62: Bracket main ideas and summarize

From the General History of Virginia
Review lines 1-62: Does Smith's account seem credible? Why or why not? Underline/highlight evidence to support your answer.

Lines 63-89: Smith loses some men and is captured. What reasons does he give for this? Why does he include these explanations?

Lines 90-135: How does Smith describe Powhatan? Write a summary of this passage in the margin.
Why does Smith include this in his narrative?

Lines 136-154: Summarize the main events in the margin.
What is Smith's attitude toward the "strongest" in Jamestown? Which words lead you to that conclusion?
Layered Writing
Look back at the texts we have annotated ("The New Colossus," "Alexander Hamilton," and "From the General History of Virginia")

In your WNB, write generally about the similarities and differences you see in each piece. You can talk about any similarities and difference, but you need to especially focus on
, and
American values

Let's Get Specific
Create some kind of graphic to represent these three texts and the ideas they contain. Here are some examples:

The New Colossus
Alexander Hamilton
From the General History of Virginia
The New Colossus
Alexander Hamilton
From the General History of Virginia
American Values
American Values
Turn your noticings into claims
In your WNB, generate a list of potential claims you can make about how these three texts relate to each other. These claims don't have to be good (yet), but make sure that they are
(can be argued) and
(can be supported by information from the text).

Turn and Talk

Share your claims with a person near you, and listen to the claims of someone else.

Put a star on your list for each claim that you think you could actually write about.
Mid Unit Assessment:

Draft a paragraph that discusses the relationship between 2 or more texts. Start with a claim, defend your claim with textual evidence, and connect your evidence back to your claim.
Before you turn it in...
Make a key and highlight the following elements in your paper. Each element should have a different color.

Evidence from Text 1
Evidence from Text 2
Evidence from Text 3 (optional)
Building a Democracy
Crash Course: Pre-Revolution
Speech to the Virginia Convention
Patrick Henry
First Draft Read: Get the gist of the piece. Paraphrase each chunk.

Second Draft Read: Highlight craft decisions and rhetorical devices

Note: You may not know what each rhetorical device is called, and that's okay! If something stands out to you, highlight it, and we can figure out what it is later
