Marking Growth: A Frame Poem Learning Focus and
Activity 1.12 Take a quick look back at the work you have done on the changes in yourself. We have done a lot of work with the changes that you have gone through. Read the top of the page. Read "Grammar & Usage" and "Literary Terms" on p 37 What is alliteration? So when do we use a semicolon? Do you have daily exposure to alliteration? Where? Let's walk through the frame poem together. Remember from what we just did that if you have one word in the top line then you put one word in the bottom line of the couplet (two lines). You do NOT have to rhyme, however the use of alliteration helps to make it memorable for your reader. Now it is your turn... Now take sticky notes and everyone write the numbers 1 - 4 on separate sticky notes. Place the numbers to rank the poems in your team from 1 - "I want this one read to the class" to 4 - "Almost there, but still needs a little polish". The poem with the lowest total is the one that a member of your team will read to the class. Now use round table to read your poem to your team. The person born closest to July 4th will begin. 1 3 1 2 4 4 3 3 2 Where should I put mine??? What is the relationship between change and growth? So let's look back at one of the Essential Questions again.... Read Learning Focus: How to Explain on p 36 A semi colon is stronger than a comma, but less final than a period. It is used to connect ideas and it helps to provide variety in writing. With your shoulder partner write six short sentences about Thanksgiving. Swap sentences with the other pair in your team. Take these sentences and combine them into three compound sentences. 5th shy and introverted more outgoing boys think they are funny mathematics am totally lost with calculus Nancy Drew mysteries like Sue Grafton and Kathy Reichs Travis would be born okay am grateful to Shriner's Hospital comfortable with SpringBoard feel overwhelmed by the additions to the curriculum back in my own house am back in my own house, but I worry about my mother be prepared with all of the additions to SpringBoard am doing the best that I can What do you notice about the sentences? Is there a balance between what is before the semi colon and what is after the semi colon? How are the ideas on either side of semicolon are related to each other? How does line 3 sound when you read it? What would change if in line 4 I changed calculus to playing the flute? Which do you prefer? Why? Now look back at the Thanksgiving sentences. Does it matter which part of the sentence comes first? Why? On the sentence strip write a short sentence about summer break. Read your shoulder partner's sentence. Can they be combined? If yes, then decide which order they need to be in, add the semi colon and post it on the wall. If no, stand up, hand up, pair up to find a sentence that can be combined with yours. Then add the semi colon and post it on the wall. Create an analogy of how a caterpillar changing to a butterfly is like you entering puberty. Hypothesize why people like the sound of alliteration.
