27 October: Intervention/ Extension Day

Objective:

I can analyze how word choice and structure impact meaning in texts (RI 2 & 4).


Entry Task:

As you come into class, grab your binder and turn to your Nobody work from yesterday. (If you were not here yesterday, please grab a packet from the filing cabinet labeled RWC; it will be in the last hanging file folder.)


What’s Going On:

Today is yours to complete your work with Marc Lamont Hill’s Nobody.


Start together by viewing the second example prompt and answer. I have color-coded the example response here. Please read through this together as a class to see how the response answers the question, includes text evidence, and provides commentary (or clarification) on the evidence.


The time is then yours to complete the reading and answer the question of how the text relates to our unit themes. Be sure to have this done before you come to class tomorrow or you will not be able to participate in our activity, and the grade will not be able to be made up.


If you complete this early, the remaining class time is our weekly intervention/extension time; choose between the following activities to work on for the remainder of our class time:

  • Work on missing/redo work

  • Complete comprehension minutes in Lexia (login to lexiapowerup.com)

  • Complete an extension writing assignment using Nobody: In a well-developed paragraph, analyze how Marc Lamont Hill uses rhetorical devices to define a nobody. (Google Classroom: Week 9)


Exit Task:

Turn your Nobody CCC into the front bin and cleanup around you.
