Standard: RL.9-10.6. Analyze a particular point of view or cultural experience reflected in a work of literature from outside the United States, drawing on a wide reading of world literature.
Learning Target: Students will review for their test on Friday by summarizing one of the acts of Julius Caesar in three different ways.
So, now that we’ve finished our essays, I’m going to split everyone into groups of 6ish (might be a little less than six in 1st block) and assign each group an act in the play. Each person in the group will have a role – 2 illustrators, 2 writers, and 2 vocabulary builders.
The illustrators have to illustrate their act, the writers have to do a 2 paragraph summary of their act, and the vocabulary builders have to find 20 vocabulary words and definitions from their act (any word from the play as long as it’s a word you don’t already know, and believe me, there are plenty).
When y’all are done (I’m going to give youtime to polish them up tomorrow) I will hang them in the hallway and we can do a gallery walk. Best poster (by class vote) will get 5 points extra credit on their test! By the by, that test will be FRIDAY. Yes that’s right kids, TEST ON FRIDAY!!!
I’m grading the assignment thusly:
- 20 points Vocabulary
- 20 points summary
- 20 points illustration
- 20 points creativity
- 20 points teamwork/effort
