Objective: I can develop and strengthen my story as needed by revising and brainstorming, focusing on addressing what is most significant for a specific purpose (W11-12.5). Agenda:
Entry Task: Organize your Danger of a Single Story handout into your notebook as it is returned to you and look at any comments given by the teacher. You will use this again today.
Follow along to the prezi, reviewing the same quote that is at the top of your Danger of a Single Story handout
Share with a neighbor your responses to Your Stories from your Danger of a Single Story handout
Be ready with your pen(cil) to brainstorm ideas about how your stories could change
Remember, “There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.” Thanks, Hamlet.
For each of the 6 prompts given, brainstorm ideas focusing on addressing one of the bolded words in each through telling your own story to stick to the purpose of the prompt.
Exit Task: After you have tried each, go back through and select one of the prompts to spend the rest of the time today working on developing. Start a new page--your teacher will hand out the list of prompts, so you can be sure to address all parts of the prompt. You do not need to finish today, but you should continue to brainstorm or begin to develop your ideas further.
