Week 1: Week of 28-Jan-2019
Work on children's story. We will use class time this week to work on it, and it will be due the second class of next week. We will not be spending class time on it next week, however.
Brainstorm and list heroic characteristics
Share your outlines and ideas in small groups. In addition to sharing plots, themes, and characters, answer two questions for each group member's story: 1) what are the heroic characteristics of the protagonist, and 2) how are those characteristics demonstrated.
Be prepared to share outcomes of your group work with the class.
After group work, you will have time to work on your story. You can create it either digitally (PPT, infographic, video, flipsnack) or as a hard copy
In-class, group activity using either Google Docs to create chain stories using logical connectors (and logical fallacies for extra credit). The teacher will assign a logical connector for each round of writing, and that connector must be used in each group's contribution.
B class will be using the following files:
Important! When your time is up with a file, your time is up. You must not continue editing a file or go back to it and edit it after everyone has moved on to a new file. Remember -- Google has an edit history.
We will brainstorm a short list of popular movies and novels that include a hero's journey. You will outline your chosen movie or book according to Josepth Campbell's Monomyth. If we have time, we might do an example as a class for The Wizard of Oz.
Complete vocabulary activity for: propaganda, bravado, repatriate. We will choose other vocabulary from the reading as a class.
Complete Short Response p 90. This should be typed, not written in the book. Because we are going on break, late work will not be accepted.
