Objective: I can cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain. (RI11-12.1). Agenda:
Entry Task: Cut and paste the map of the Stampede Trail onto the next blank page. Don’t forget to add color to your journal as a whole when you have the chance!
Pre-Reading: Review the elements of tragedy: Hubris, Fatal Flaw, and Fate from your guided notes.
What evidence have we seen of these for McCandless so far?
Follow along to Ch. 2 “The Stampede Trail” (11:53) p. 10-14
Post-Reading: Because we knew this was a tragedy, we knew McCandless was going to die. Discuss what the impact is of learning this in the second chapter has on your reading?
In your journal, explain the impact this chapter has on your reading and what you think about McCandless’ hubris or fatal flaw as well as how you think fate impacted his outcome. What aspects of his death were out of his control?
Review the rubric and accomplish one of the following from Chapter 1:
Find 1 of the vocabulary words from throughout the book (focusing on words you struggle with), copy the sentence and page number, highlight the word, then write your own sentence using the word correctly.
Find a quotes from your reading that is thought-provoking and write a thoughtful reaction filling the page with your thoughts and ideas. Images included enhance the ideas.
Exit Task: Look back at your rubric and tally for either the vocabulary word or quote you found in order to keep track of what you have accomplished so far. Replace the rubric as a bookmark in your journal, so you can reference it frequently
