Week 3, Day 2
Objective: Introduce Unit 1, understand cultural background to literary texts, grade level vocabulary, and listening for understanding

  1. Bell Work: Recognizing when and where a story takes place helps you set expectations for reading.  Think of  a movie or television show you have seen recently.  What clues helped you understand the story’s setting?
    1. Remember...40 words!
    2. At least 2 SAT words (from Week 1, 2, or 3)
  2. Create a copy of this document 
    1. Please put YOUR NAME in front of the title "Vocabulary/Literary Terms."  For example: Chelsea Avalos Vocabulary/Literary Terms
  3. Vocabulary for Stories
    1. The definition and part of speech are on page 18.  For the sentence, you must use the word in the sentence.  You may make up your own (it better make sense) or you may use the one from the textbook.  It tells you after the definition on what page number the word can be found.  They should be in the textbook between pages 18-28.
      1. Ancestors
      2. Depths
      3. Protruded
      4. Unconscious
  4. Literary Terms
    1. For literary terms you will put the definition (you will have to figure out the definition by reading the paragraph(s) in the middle of page 18) and an example of this literary term.  For the example, it will NOT be the literary term in a sentence.  It is an example of that literary term.  It may or may not be a complete sentence.  (An example of an origin myth would be the Onondaga story, "The Earth on Turtle's Back."  
      1. Origin Myths
      2. Themes
      3. Archetypes
  5. If time permits, listen to or read "The Earth on Turtle's Back" (Onondaga), "When Grizzlies Walked Upright" (Modoc), from The Navajo Origin Legend (Navajo)  (pg. 20-28)
