I am a Part of All That I See activity

Students worked on an identity activity as if they were part the common man and the working class. Their responses are due at the beginning of class tomorrow. *** I said the pictures would be available online, but I wasn't able to upload them. 

Thursday 2/1/2018
Begin Whitman

Students shared and turned in their activity from yesterday on "I Am a Part of All That I See." Building on yesterday's activity, students read Walt Whitman's "I Hear America Singing" on pg 311 and answered the reading response questions (see Eng 11 bellwork and writing responses). 4th hour began the second Whitman poem, but we'll come back to that tomorrow. For absent students: I have uploaded textbook pages 310, 311, and 321 and 322. 

Friday 2/2/2018
Cont. Whitman

Today we focused on the poem "A Sight in Camp in the Daybreak Gray and Dim." After reading it, students worked independently to answer Qs 1, 3, 5 on pg 327. (I have uploaded these Qs into Eng 11 class resources) 4th hour finished all three Qs and we began sharing responses. 5th and 6th hours finished Qs 1 and 3 and will complete the assignment Monday. 

Monday 2/5/2018
Whitman Song of Myself 33

5th and 6th hours reviewed their responses to the Qs on page 327 for "A Sight in Camp in the Daybreak Gray and Dim" and, with 4th hour, turned them in. All classes moved on to "Song of Myself 33" on pgs 316-317. After reading the poem aloud, students worked independently to write a detailed description for each of the "scenes" in the poem: the skipper, slave, fireman, and artillerist.

Tuesday 2/6/2018
Complete "Song of Myself 33"

Students completed the three analytical questions for "Song of Myself 33" - the description of the four scenes, the main characters ("heroes"), and the feelings evoked by each scene. Tomorrow they will begin brainstorming ways to visually depict one assigned scene from the four.

Wednesday 2/7/2018
Share info/begin brainstorming

After students finished the three activities for Whitman's four scenes on pages 316-317, they got into assigned groups to brainstorm ways to depict all the action in the scenes. They will have the class period tomorrow to work on this and then it will be due Monday at the beginning of class.

Students will have the entire class period to finish writing the essay ON THEIR OWN PAPER tomorrow. I will collect this and grade it. 50 points.
