Week 6, Day 2
Objective: literary analysis, defining drama terms, cultural and historical impacts on literature, grade-level vocabulary

  1. Bell Work: Open up your textbook to page 1116-1117 and open up your Vocabulary/Literary Terms Document
  2. We are moving on to one of my favorite parts of the year.  We are getting ready to read The Crucible about the Salem Witch Trials of the 1690s!!!! It is incredibly interesting.  It is a play that I am planning on starting next week, when I get back!  Because it is a play, today, you are going to learn a little about drama (as in theatrical drama, not high school drama!)  
  3. As a class, read pages 1116-1117.
  4. Put the following terms on the "Literary Terms" part of your document.--this will go in the pink section.  Label them "Drama Terms" in the column for the story name.  (Define them.  Yes, you will need examples too!  Use what you already know or use Google!! )--Due Friday at 4:00pm.  I am planning on this being the only day to work on this in class.  Use your time wisely.
