Period 3 Literature

1. The Exposition is we meet the characters. The rising action is she is annoying to the chief of the tribe and get’s set away. Climax she fights the chief. Falling action she is about to be killed but the chief doesn’t because he realizes how good of a fighter she is. The resolution is that the chief welcomes her back into the tribe. They never fight again.

2. I think that my thinking has changed because she is about to throw something at a man. Or she is just holding something on her head.

3. KIng Herod relates to this because they are in the time period that King Herod was alive and that the girl was his servant or something.

4. He is a guy who is trapped in a tree because a vicious humongous alligator chased him into a tree. The alligator is waiting at the bottom when he falls and then he eats him. He si important because the alligator ate him so the people want to kill the allligator. Watch the spelling, but I love the thinking!

5. If this was a movie the kind of music playing would be Jaws theme. For the killing parts that might be involved.

6. Collaborate means to work together.
Commend means to give up.
Comply means to agree with someone.
Diatribe is a type of tribe.
Impudent I don’t know what impudent is.
Proposition is like an idea.
Provisions I don’t know what provisions are.
Ransom is like when you hold somebody hostage until you get a certain amount of money.

Thank you for being honest and sharing your thinking with me!

The Conclusion of the Elevator




After she pushes the stop button Martin thinks she is real but she is actually a ghost that lived in the apartments a long time ago. So no one remembers who she is. The lady starts to haunt his apartment and scare him at night and Martin isn’t able to sleep. When Martin does finally wake up he sees her standing right above him and screams. His dad comes running in but he can’t see the ghost, so he thinks Martin is crazy. The ghost grabs him and takes Martin to her house and kept him there forever. All of a sudden his head gets cut off and he dies.

If I were writing this piece I would be careful to stay in one tense throughout the piece rather than flipping back and forth. Just so you know, many writers have this problem. You just need to be aware that as the writer you need to keep the character in one tense unless you are using a flashback. Michael Oberg 9-20-12

Tourettes Syndrome
Tourettes syndrome can affect people in many ways. One reason is if it’s a vocal tic , it might want to make you say things you don’t want to say. Another reason is that it’s characterized by multiple motor tics. One reason it might affect you in school is, the vocal tic might make you blurt out things instead of raising your hands. And tourettes make you have motor tics, which means your brain will tell your muscles to move when you don’t want them too. Such as, moving your arm or twitching your nose. You could also make you say the wrong thing to a person. Having the disease as an adult is rare. Ages 5-18 have tourettes. Tourettes has a genetically relationship with OCD. It’s also related to ADHD. But people who have had Tourettes for a long time say as they grow up Tourettes doesn’t seem to affect them. Genetics and environmental play a role in the etiology of Tourettes. Although Tourettes has no cure it does have medicine for it which calms down the tics. Reflection of Lesson

1. What do you learn about the main character Martin in the exposition?
That he does not like to ride the elevator because he’s afraid it will break.

2. What do you think the main conflict will be about?
The elevator breaks and Martin is trapped in the elevator.

3. What events set the rising action in motion?
The big lady got in the elevator and kept looking at Martin till they got to the main floor.

4. In your opinion, is the conflict real or in his head? Support your answer.
In his head because I don’t think the lady wants to make him scared. I think she also is too big to turn around in the elevator.

5. What internal conflict is plaguing Martin in line 81-84?
He is afraid of the old lady and he said if he was scared of her it would control him.

6. What details in lines 88- 104 help to create suspense about what might happen?
He watched the door slide open and revealing a green colored coat, a piggish face, blue eyes already fixed on him.

7. What details in lines 121-139 suggest a conflict between father and son?
He also said that Martin was afraid with total assurance. He said when are you going to grow up and act like a man.

8. Review your answer for question four. Then consider the lady’s behavior each time Martin sees her on the elevator. Has your answer changed?
No, because she is too big to move in the elevator and she can’t move her head.

9. How might this development affect Martin’s conflict?
He broke his leg and is not able to stay away from her.

10. Do you think Martin is in danger?
No because the lady lives in the apartment.

11. The falling action is important because?
To make you wonder what happened.
If this were my paper, I would check to see if my answers were in complete sentences.
Michael Oberg


The Conclusion of the Elevator




After she pushes the stop button Martin thinks she is real but she is actually a ghost that lived in the apartments a long time ago. So no one remembers who she is. The lady starts to haunt his apartment and scare him at night and Martin isn’t able to sleep. When Martin does finally wake up he sees her standing right above him and screams. His dad comes running in but he can’t see the ghost, so he thinks Martin is crazy. The ghost grabs him and takes Martin to her house and kept him there forever. All of a sudden his head gets cut off and he dies.

If I were writing this piece I would be careful to stay in one tense throughout the piece rather than flipping back and forth. Just so you know, many writers have this problem. You just need to be aware that as the writer you need to keep the character in one tense unless you are using a flashback. By Michael Oberg and Andrew Lenane


Ransom, and Random
Antsy, and Annoying
Non Realistic, and not nice
Strange, and Stupid
Obnoxious, and Obscure
Mouthy, and madness Dear Mrs. Frohwein:

This week Mrs. Frohwein taught us what a compound verb was and a compound subject was. She helped me alot because language is not my good subject, so now I know what to do because of her. In reading she taught us a stop, look, and think process that makes you think about what you are doing and not just reading and not remembering it.

Traits
Prediction
Comply
Predicate
Subject
Inference
Collaborate
Apparition
Commend
Irony
Suspense

To Comply means to obey or conform to something such as a rule, law, regulation, or a wish.

To commend means to praise somebody or something in a formal way.

To collaborate means to work with another person or group in order to achieve something.

Inference is a conclusion drawn from evidence or reasoning.

Apparition is an appearance of a supposed ghost or something ghostly.

Prediction means incongruity between what actually happens and what might be expected to happen, especially when this disparity seems absurd or laughable.

Traits is a characteristic or quality that distinguishes somebody.

Suspense means a feeling of tense excitement about how something such as a mystery novel or movie will end.

To make a prediction is to say what is going to happen in the future, often based on present indications or past experiences.

Predicate is a word or combination of words, including the verb, objects, or phrases governed by the verb that make up one of the two main parts of a sentence.

A subject is the part of a sentence or utterance, usually a noun, noun phrase, or equivalent, that the rest of the sentence asserts something about and that agrees with the verb. The subject typically performs the action expressed by the verb. "She" and "The dog" are the subjects of "She gave me the book" and "The dog was found asleep" respectively. Michael Oberg
