By Order of the Author,
Per G. G., Chief of Ordinance. Explanatory

In this book a number of dialects are used, to wit: the Missouri negro dialect; the extremest for of the back-woods Southwestern dialect; the ordinary "Pike County" dialect; and four modified varieties of this last. The shadings have not been done in a haphazard fashion, or by guesswork; but painstakingly, and with the trustworthy guidance and support of personal familiarity with these several forms of speech.

I make this explanation for the reason that without it many readers would suppose that all these characters were trying to talk alike and not succeeding.

The Author What is Twain warning us about?

Why does he say this? Why might Twain have included this at the start of his story? What does it suggest about his attitude or point of view? Aim: SWBAT examine the moral dilemma that Huck faces in Chapter 16 of Huckleberry Finn in order to determine Mark Twain's attitude toward agency. HW:
1) Review break packet to prepare for the quiz.

2) Read chapters 19-20 of Huck Finn. Lesson 4.2 Do Now: Read and annotate the passage on your handout. In the space provided, answer at least one of the questions in the Do Now box using complete sentences. I. Do Now

II. Task 5 Grades

III. Task 6 Assignment Sheet

IV. TPSIS - Chapter 15

V. Independent Work - Chapter 16 INDEPENDENT WORK For the remainder of the period, search chapter 16 to find a direct quote that you feel relates to agency. Once you have a quote, complete the TPSIS model to find a So What? claim about this quote!

If you finish this early, please use the remaining time to start your homework (Chapters 19-20 of Huck and reviewing your break packet for tomorrow's quiz!) 86-95 Tomorrow's Quiz - Chapters 1-18 of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (50 Points)

1 TIPSIS analysis chart based on a quote from Chapter 16

15 short answer questions (1-2 sentences) about the plot of chapters 1-18 Aim: SWBAT prove mastery of their break assignment by rocking a quiz on Chapters 1-18 of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. 1) Read chapters 19-20 of Huck Finn

2) Task 6 is due in 11 days! Lesson 4.3 Do Now: Immediately begin your quiz. You may use your study guide and any written notes (including post-its). HW: Reminders:

1) Task 6 will only be graded as "on time" if it is SHARED on GOOGLE DOCS before 8:00 AM on Friday, December 7th.

If you have had trouble turning in work using this format, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to resolve the issue BEFORE the due date.

2) All of the arguments that you build in class can be used as body paragraphs in Task 6! Use your time wisely in class to make this writing assignment less difficult! Aim: SWBAT examine Mark Twain's use of satire and irony within the feuding families of the Shepherdsons and the Grangerfords within Chapter 18 of Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. HW:
1) Read Chapters 21-22 of Huck Finn.

2) Task 6 is due in 9 days! Lesson 4.4 Do Now: Read and annotate the passage on your handout. In this dialogue, mark which character says each line. In addition, answer the question at the bottom! Requirements:

1) Work independently (this means silently!)

2) Write out your thoughts completely - you will not earn credit if I cannot understand your reasoning!

3) For 10 points of extra credit, use your TPSIS chart to construct a full paragraph on the back of your paper! Don't forget - 3 or more missed Do Nows or Exit Tickets will result in a 2 hour Friday detention! What is something that seemed ridiculous in the Do Now reading? It seems ridiculous that Buck wants to kill the Shepherdsons, but he can't give any specific reasons for wanting to kill them. What is something in the Do Now reading that goes against your expectations? You would expect the head of the family to know why they have a feud, but even Pa doesn't know what the original argument was about. What other stories do you know that have two families that try to kill each other? In Romeo and Juliet two families (Montegues and Capulets) have a feud that is never explained.

Romeo and Juliet fall in love, just like Sophia and Harney. Romeo and Juliet die, stopping the feud. Sophia and Harney escape, and their families die instead. Buck explains to Huck... Satire - Irony- Allusion- Satire - Irony- Allusion- Family feuds are... In the South, people... Southerners make the mistakes of... Mark Twain's use of _____________________ highlights ... Aim: SWBAT examine Twain's attitude toward American society through a seminar discussion on Chapters 21-22 of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. HW:
1) Read chapters 23-24 of Huck Finn.

2) Task 6 is due in 8 days! Lesson 4.5 Do Now: Read the paragraph, respond to both bold questions, and write three questions of your own on the seminar sheet. I. Do Now

II. Hook Question

III. Guided Reading

IV. Independent Practice

V. Exit Ticket (Collected!) Today's reading passage will require us to evaluate how characters and groups make moral decisions.

Remember - the decision-making process of a character can be a part of their characterization.

As we read, consider what the decision-making process says about these characters, and more importantly, what Twain is suggesting about southerners! Explain why characters in chapters 21-22 choose to act the way that they do. Please pick a specific line that shows this, and explain what this characterization suggests about Twain's attitude toward Southerners. Mark Twain uses satire to highlight that some southerners lacked the moral values of a true Christian. When Huck goes to church with the Grangerfords, he feels that the sermon was tiresome, "But everybody said it was a good sermon and the all talked about it going home." They were all talking about how good the sermon was and going on about faith and how they feel that they will go to heaven. They have the greed to kill each other, but when they get to church they act as if they have morals. People felt that they were still religious and in some cases feel that they are going to heaven. Aim: SWBAT examine Twain's attitude toward American society through a seminar discussion on Chapters 21-22 of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. HW:
1) Read chapters 23-24 of Huck Finn.

2) Task 6 is due in 8 days! Lesson 4.5 Do Now: Read the paragraph, respond to both bold questions, and write three questions of your own on the seminar sheet. I. Do Now

II. Discussion

III. Exit Ticket What moral values do characters follow in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and what does this suggest about Mark Twain’s view of American society? INDEPENDENTLY write a CCEAJ paragraph in response to today's discussion topic.

Your claim should focus on a specific element (tone, satire, diction, irony, etc.) to argue Twain's attitude toward American society. Inside the circle:


Yasmine Aim: SWBAT examine historical allusions through a close reading of Chapter 23 of Huck Finn in order to construct a “So What?” claim about the significance of a character’s agency. HW:
1) Read chapters 25-26 of Huck Finn.

2) Task 6 is due in 4 days! Lesson 4.7 Do Now: Read pgs 153-155. As you read, answer the questions on your handout. The best two exit tickets will earn 5 extra credit points! 1) Nell Gwyn
2) Jane Shore
3) Fair Rosamun
4) One Thousand and One Nights
5) The Domesday Book Why does Twain make an allusion to Henry VIII? Plot/Facts What does Huck's misinformation add to the story? Twain's allusion to ___________ reveals ___________. "My, your ought to seen old Henry the Eight when he was in bloom. He was a blossom. He used to marry a new wife every day, and chop off her head next morning. And he would do it just as indifferent as if he was ordering up eggs. 'Fetch up Nell Gwynn,' he says. They fetch her up. Next morning, 'Chop off her head!' And they chop it off. 'Ring up Fair Rosamun.' Fair Rosamun answers the bell. Next morning, 'Chop off her head.' And he made every one of them tell him a tale every night' and he kept that up till he had hogged a thousand and one tales that way, and then he put them all in a book, and called it Domesday Book -- which was a good name and stated the case. You don't know kings, Jim, but I know them..."
