Film, online discussion

If you missed class for a school-excused absence, you will receive an "X" on your grade which does not affect your grade either way. If you want points instead, you may do the make-up work.

MAKE-UP WORK: Watch the first hour of Slavery by Another Name and write an ongoing "interaction" with it as you watch. Instead of notes that copy what you see and hear, comment on what you're thinking, feeling, and wondering as you watch.

The documentary is available online:

Timeline & Family Tree (use pp. 40-48)

Handout:

Checklist:


HELPFUL HINTS:
* The stars on the family tree=family members involved in the trade for the piano.
* It's easiest to start at the bottom of the family tree. The play is set in 1937. If the person at the bottom of the tree was born in 1925, the person is 12 years old. Then go up to his/her parents, her mother's brother, their parents, etc.
* One person on the family tree is not mentioned in the story. Use the process of elimination to place her.
* The heavy line on the timeline=CURRENT events (what happened to get Boy Willie to come to Pittsburgh?)
* Do a rough draft of the timeline first or it will probably be a mess. If you do have to squeeze one or two missed things in the timeline that's okay though.

Also, if you have decided that you will opt out of the film, please let me know that you will need the alternate assignment ASAP so I will be prepared for you.

Chapter 5 Group Work
We worked together in groups to create a rough draft of an essay which explores the moment in chapter five when Daisy sobs, "It makes me sad because I've never seen such-- such beautiful shirts before" (98).

If you missed class, you will write the essay on your own. To be prepared for next class, write three paragraphs.
1. Why does Daisy cry upon seeing Gatsby's shirts?
2. Does Gatsby understand her reaction fully? What would he think?
3. How do their reactions reveal important elements of their relationship as you see it develop throughout the novel?

HOMEWORK INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Watch your class's recordings.
2. Complete a self-evaluation using the rubric I gave you.
3. Complete an evaluation of the peer assigned to you using the rubric I gave you (your peer will see this and your name will be on it--be honest, respectful, and constructive).

If you lose your rubrics (or are sick or singing to veterans or something), here they are:


Where do you watch the videos? Well that is complicated. They are too big to load to this site or to Canvas (they both have 50 MB file limits and that would mean dividing the videos into about 30 second snippets--annoying!).

I have posted them on YouTube temporarily. Follow the links to see all four videos from our class.

ANOTHER NOTE: I will delete these posts on Tuesday, November 18. Do not delay! (It's due by Monday anyway . . . )

To keep your class relatively private, I shared the links for your class on Canvas. The peer assignment list is also on Canvas (it's all part of the assignment "The Scarlet Letter: Socratic Seminar Evaluations")

IF YOU MISSED CLASS: We watched the A & E biography of Fitzgerald. There are clips of it on their site, along with a written introduction. The entire biography is also available (in four parts) on Youtube. You may watch/read the information on the A&E site or watch the whole bio on Youtube (I don't know if the upload is legal . . . but it is there, so?).

Whichever option you choose, take notes. Write the alphabet down the left hand side of a piece of paper. For each letter, write down two or three words that show you learned something and listened to/read the entire biography. For "X" you can use any word with the letter in it; for the others, try to find words that begin with the letter. I know some of them are a stretch! :)
