I can propel discussion with my peers through questions, textual evidence and argumentation
During Discussion you should:
Agenda: I can annotate a text to make connections to another text and prepare for discussion.
Bellringer: Watch the SNL clip about Odysseus and the sirens; what was the writer's purpose? What literary term describes this?
Bellringer: Top Ten Tuesday
Agenda: I can promote a debatable discussion based on Part II of The Odyssey
Exit slip: Create a claim based on today's discussion...I'll have feedback to you tomorrow
Prep work: Review parts I and II, we will prep for Socratic Seminar tomorrow in class.
Have your questions out that you created for today
Discuss "part-Time Indian"....practice Discussion based on Diction & theme
Formative assessment: You will draw inferences from your group's discussion and synthesize your ideas to create a claim about how diction helps portray the theme of the selection.
