Write one snapshot memory in as much detail as possible in
response to the prompt
"I remember..." Creating Group Norms Groups work best when they have agreed-upon norms to which the group agrees to adhere. Today, your group will work together to establish norms for group interaction. The staff at Inspire has a list of norms that we have agreed to uphold in meetings. For example, we agree to:

1) Arrive on time.
2) Make an effort to value all voices in a discussion, especially the dissenting voice.
3) Confront issues openly and honestly. Since norms are a response to anticipated problems related to working in groups, your first step in your group is to brainstorm a list of problems you have encountered in previous collaboration.

For example, one item on the list might be:
--group members who neglect to complete the work or forget to bring it to class The next step is to create norms that address the problems on your brainstorm list. For example:

PROBLEM: Group members who neglect to complete the work or forget to bring it to class
NORM: We agree to complete all homework and bring it to class on the due date. Understanding the shape of a narrative Plot: contains ALL the elements
of a narrative Conflict: the problem External conflict: a struggle that takes place between a character and something outside himself or herself Internal conflict: a struggle that takes place within a character's mind or heart Basic situation or exposition:
the opening of the story, when the characters and their conflict are introduced Complications:
events happen that complicate the problems Climax: the moment when our emotional involvement is greatest Resolution: the story is over and we know what is going to happen to the characters The assignment: Work together with your group to write captions for the comic provided. Your captions must be written in such a way that they tell a story--with a basic situation, conflict, complications, climax, and resolution. Discuss: Does your comic tell a story? Does it contain all the elements of a narrative? Read the learning targets for "The Most Dangerous Game." Fill out the "before reading" column. Homework: Tension: Uncertainty or anxiety the reader feels about what is going to happen next in the story. Flashback: Scene in a story that interrupts the present action of the plot to flash backward and tell what happened at an earlier time. Homework: 1) Don't forget, your Tech Tools project is due Tuesday, 8/28
2) For next time...BRING A BOOK
