World Lit: The Death of Hector Play

Standards

  • ELAGSE11-12RL7 Analyze multiple interpretations of a story, drama, or poem (e.g., recorded or live production of a play or recorded novel or poetry), evaluating how each version interprets the source text. (Include at least one play by Shakespeare as well as one play by an American dramatist.) Georgia
  • ELAGSE9-10RL7 Analyze the representation of a subject or a key scene in two different artistic mediums (e.g., Auden’s poem “Musée de Beaux Arts” and Breughel’s painting Landscape with the Fall of Icarus), including what is emphasized or absent in each treatment. Georgia
  • ELAGSE9-10RL9 Analyze how an author draws on and transforms source material in a specific work (e.g., how Shakespeare treats a theme or topic from Ovid or the Bible or how a later author draws on a play by Shakespeare). Georgia

Learning Target
Students will put on a play to display their knowledge of the Iliad.

Activator
We’re going to start the day by watching a scene from Troy and discussing how the movie producers and directors transferred the story to the screen.

Work Session
I’m going to divide the class into 3 groups. Your groups will each put on a dramatic presentation of how they interpret the events that occur in the “Death of Hector” from the Iliad. You can use the movie as inspiration, but remember what we discussed and how your might modify or adjust to fit the screen.

With about fifteen minutes left of class, I’ll call each group up to perform for us. Yes, this is a quick turnaround, and we all know it, so don’t freakout about being unprepared for the stage 🙂

Closer
Let’s vote and discuss! Who was the best? Why?

AP Lang: Presentations, Day 3

Standards

  • ELAGSE11-12W1 Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence. Georgia ELA
  • ELAGSE11-12W8 Gather relevant information from multiple authoritative print and digital sources, using advanced searches effectively; assess the strengths and limitations of each source in terms of the task, purpose, and audience; integrate information into the text selectively to maintain the flow of ideas, avoiding plagiarism and overreliance on any one source and following a standard format for citation. Georgia ELA
  • ELAGSE11-12SL1 Initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions(one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grades 11-12 topics, texts, and issues, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively. Georgia ELA
  • ELAGSE11-12SL4 Present information, findings, and supporting evidence, conveying a clear and distinct perspective, such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning, alternative or opposing perspectives are addressed, and the organization, development, substance, and style are appropriate to purpose, audience, and a range or formal and informal tasks. Georgia ELA

Objective
Students will present the articles they analyzed to the class, focusing specifically on how their article relates to the American Dream.

Opening Session
Everyone get out 4 half-sheets of paper and number them “Presentation 9” – “Presentation 11”. You will use these to write a short, one-paragraph response to each of your classmates’ presentations. Groups 9-11, come see me so I can pull your stuff up on my computer!

Work Session
Today we will have groups 9-11 presenting their essays!

After each presentation, respond with a 1-paragraph blurb in which you discuss how the essay presented relates to the American Dream.

Closing Session
Share out! Let’s give a compliment to the presenters of today 🙂 Tell them something they did well!

Learning Target
Students will work together to create a presentation to teach an essay they have analyzed to the class.

Opening Session
Get with your groups, everyone grab a laptop, and let me get your names and laptop numbers written down! You’ll always use the same laptop in class 🙂

Work Session
Today your goal is to finish creating the lesson you will present to the class tomorrow. Remember, you should present the essay you analyzed to the class and explain its significance related to the American Dream.

You can create anything you want to help your presentation – a PowerPoint, Google Slides, Prezi, or similar medium would be great. If you choose to make a handout or something like that, talk to me about making copies for your classmates.

Remember, you’ll be graded on how well you teach the class, so do a good job!

Closing Session
Draw numbers! I’ll have everyone draw a number to decide what order the groups will present. 1-4, get ready to go tomorrow!
