Objective: I can cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis as a horror by drawing inferences from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain (RL11-12.1). Agenda:
Entry Task: 5 min. Take a walk around the room and look at all of the characteristics of horror from the posters you created before we did our Dystopia work. Talk with someone who is looking with you about which characteristics you are most intrigued by and why. Did article “Why is Horror So Popular” resonate with you?
3 students to share out back at your seats; pick up a Chromebook on the way back--do not sign in yet
Follow along as the beginning of the Horror presentation is shared with you and how it is laid out.
Take notes in your notebook about the popular definition
Log in and open your copy of the slideshow and copy the titles and authors of each story, and ideas about which you would most like to read, narrowing it down to one.
Once we have gone through the slideshow, you will select which story you want to read and begin reading it.
While reading, you should be looking for the Horror characteristics from the popular definition and two of the characteristics from the class.
Exit Task: Last 5 min. stop your reading and complete the characteristics handout as much as you can, keeping track of where you are at in your reading (time or page).
