Reviewy Monday

Hey y’all! Your test is TOMORROW!!! #ohcrap #ineedtomakethetest #ijustdiscoveredhashtags #notreally #dontsayit #iknowimnotcool

Standard:

  • RL.9-10.1. Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
  • RL.9-10.2. Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze in detail its development over the course of the text, including how it emerges and is shaped and refined by specific details; provide an objective summary of the text.
  • RL.9-10.3. Analyze how complex characters (e.g., those with multiple or conflicting motivations) develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme.

Learning Target: Students will review for their Metamorphosis Unit Test tomorrow!!

Activator: 

First things first, let’s check out some different book covers for The Metamorphosis!

bookcover1 bookcover2 bookcover3 bookcover4

What does each cover depict? What does that say about the book? Why would the artists choose to portray the story in this way?

Next up, we’re gonna play a little review game! Everyone split into groups of 4 and for goodness sake, please put the desks into neat little tables -_- stop this “let’s destroy the classroom” nonsense… It makes me twitchy.

Anyway, once we are in groups of 4, we’re gonna start answering questions about the story. I have 180 questions! I’m going to hand a question packet out to each group and give you time as a group of 4 to work on it. Then, after you’ve had some time, I think an hour or so (that’s approximately 20 seconds per question!) we will come back together and go over the answers. Whichever group gets the most correct will get 5 points extra credit on their test!! WHOO!!

That’s our day today…be prepared for your test tomorrow, y’all! AND DON’T FORGET YOUR MOVIE PERMISSION FORM BY WEDNESDAY SO WE CAN WATCH ALIEN!!!!!!!

Closing Session: Ticket out the door – what questions do you still have that I can review tomorrow before the test?

Differentiation: Process – students will be able to find answers in the way that best suits them.

Assessment: Students will be formally assessed on the test tomorrow.
