Transcript of Tip of the Iceberg. Identity.

Tip of the Iceberg
What we see on the outside of a person is only the tip of the iceberg........
Daily Oral Language
The term "tip of the iceberg" means that there is much more to see than what you notice at first. When we call something "just the tip of the iceberg", it is an idiom. What is an idiom? Think of another idiom and write that down as well.
Beneath the Surface
Like icebergs, people are much more than just their outer appearances. For the next few days, we are going to focus on finding out about one another, our identities, and our opinions. To begin, turn your neighbor and ask them the following three questions:

Who lives with you?
What is your nationality?
Who do you idolize (really look up to or admire)?

What did you discover?
What can you tell me about your classmate? Did you already know the answers to the questions you asked?
What is an identity?
Simply put: The fact of being who or what a person or thing is

Many things can contribute to a person's identity
Daily Oral Language
Adjective: a word used to describe a noun (person, place or thing)
Look at the picture below and describe the characters or the setting with ten adjectives.
What else?
More on Identity
Identity has as much to do with what we think of ourselves as it does to do with what others think of us. Is it possible that our own thoughts on our identity are different than what others may think of us?
Activity: Create a T-chart in your notebook
On one side of the T-chart, list 5 words that you feel describe your identity. On the other side, list words that you believe other people think when they describe your identity.
Our identities can be multi-faceted. That means that we can
use more than one word to describe ourselves.
(having many parts)
Daily Oral Language
Watch the video by School House Rocks. List ten adjectives that were used in the video. Then look at those adjectives and write synonyms for those adjectives.
Synonyms and Antonyms
Synonym: A word or phrase that means exactly or nearly the same as another word or phrase in the same language
example: good, excellent, awesome
Antonym: A word opposite in meaning to another
example: bad and good
Pick one of the following words and write three synonyms and one antonym for the word.



Notice how some of the synonyms for the words are much stronger and more meaningful than the original words. The words fall on a spectrum. A spectrum is a range from one extreme or another. A verb can have synonyms too. For example, the verb "walk" has a large spectrum. You could "stroll", you could "saunter" or you could "skip". These synonyms for walk all more closely describe the action of "walking".
Daily Oral Language
Watch the following video on verbs and then select one of the verbs that you hear and write three synonyms for it.
Daily Oral Language
Please answer the following questions in your notebook:
1) What do you like to do for fun?
2) What special talents do you have?
3) What is your favorite school subject? Why?
Daily Oral Language
After reading over your journals about what you did this summer, I noticed some common errors throughout the journals. Please write the sentences below and fix them.
1) Me and my friends went to Grona Lund where we buyed a ticket for Ke$has show.
2) We was late to the airport and we were lucky we catched our plain.
