MONDAY SEPTEMBER 8, 2014 WRITE IN YOUR AGENDA: ● SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION ● KERNEL ESSAY ● HOMEWORK: READ FOR AR FOR 30 MINUTES. INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK IN THE TABLE OF CONTENTS OF YOUR INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK PLEASE ADD THIS: 9-8-14- SYNTHESIS- PAGE 23 9-8-14- THE SWEETEST FIG-Page 24 9-8-14- CHARACTERIZATION- PAGE 25 THE SWEETEST FIG We are going to practice synthesis as we read today. I am going to read The Sweetest Fig a loud to you and as we discuss the book we will be able to see synthesis at work. We will see how our thoughts change as we think about the text. As we apply our schema and we make connections new things will become aware to us in the text. We also are going to look for evidence in the book about our characters. We will be making a chart with the text evidence and our inferences. KERNEL ESSAY TODAY WE ARE GOING TO USE OUR QUICK LIST FROM YESTERDAY TO SELECT A MOMENT OR MEMORY THAT YOU WOULDN’T MIND EVERYONE HEARING ABOUT. • NUMBER YOUR PAPERS ONE THROUGH 5 SKIPPING LINES. • THINK ABOUT THE MOMENT YOU CHOSE. • I’M GOING TO ASK YOU FIVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT MOMENT, ONE AT A TIME. • ANSWER EACH QUESTION ABOUT THAT MOMENT. KERNEL ESSAY 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. WHERE WERE YOU AND WHAT WERE YOU DOING? WHAT WAS THE FIRST THING THAT HAPPENED? WHAT WAS THE SECOND THING THAT HAPPENED? WHAT WAS THE LAST THING THAT HAPPENED? WHAT YOU THOUGHT. ( AS I WAS…I SAW…AND I THOUGHT…) YOU HAVE JUST WRITTEN A KERNEL ESSAY. IT’S LIKE A KERNEL OF CORN, TINY BUT PACKED!
