Homework: poem memorization
Tuesday, October 11
Take 10 - practice poem with poetry buddy.
Discuss setting - Ask these key ? Where is the setting found? (in the exposition), What two parts are included in the setting? (time and place). When the reader adds these two elements together what might they feel? (a certain kind of mood). Discuss how time can be told - create a top 10 list. Give each quadrant a place and have them add 3 possible times and moods for the place. Classroom work - each student will receive a type of story. They will need to fill in a place and a time and a mood for the story. Then they will write three complete sentences including imagery that creates the desired setting.
