Week 4, Day 3
Objective: analyze cultural and historical impacts on literature; grade level vocabulary, and listening for understanding; revising and editing; evaluate how different literary elements (e.g., figurative language, point of view) shape the author's portrayal of the plot and setting in works of fiction; addresses the writing skills for an analytical essay, including references to and commentary on quotations from the text; analyzes the aesthetic effects of an author's use of stylistic devices.  

  1. Bell Work: With the title, "To My Dear and Loving Husband," what do you think the poem will be about?  Use what information you know about the Puritans and what they wrote about, what the social expectations of women were in that time period, etc.
    1. This should be done in your spiral.  I've heard from some that I had on my blog to do your bell work in a Google Doc.  Please do your bell work in a separate spiral notebook.  We MAY eventually switch to a Google Doc, but I want you to write it for now.
    2. At least 40 words 
    3. Underline every 10th word
    4. Use at least two SAT words (either from the current week or past weeks)

    4. No more than 3 in a group.  
    5. Write your answers in a color OTHER THAN black!  
    6. For several of these questions, there is not a right or wrong answer. It is simply how you interpret the poem.
