Week 2, Day 4
Objective: Students create a Literary Period Timeline in order to demonstrate familiarity with works by authors in American fiction from each major literary period.  

  1. Bell Work: Yesterday, you did research on an American Literary Time Period.  From what you looked up, what author seems like the most interesting and learn more about?  What piece of literature from your time period would you most like to read?  (Please use complete sentences, needs to be at least 40 words with every 10th word underlined.  You do NOT have to use SAT words in today's bell work, but kudos to you if you can!!!)
  2. American Literature Time Period Research (only about 5-8 minutes)
  3. Present your American Literary Time Period to the class (each group should only take 3-5 minutes to present their information...pretty informal, just trying to get all the information to the entire class.)  If you don't finish, you can finish tomorrow.  
    1. Native American Literature
    2. Puritan/Colonial Literature
    3. American Revolution Literature
    4. American Romanticism Literature
    5. American Gothic Literature
    6. Transcendentalism Literature
    7. American Realism Literature
    8. American Naturalism Literature
    9. American Modernism Literature
    10. Harlem Renaissance Literature
    11. American Contemporary Literature
  4. As each group presents their information, record it in the appropriate section of your document from yesterday...but ONLY in the LEFT column.  We will use the right column later.  
  5. Create an account on Quizlet, join my class, and study for your SAT Quiz on Monday
  6. Reminders:
    1. DRE Week 2 is due Friday.
    2. SAT Quiz Week #2 on Monday.
