Torres, MAT 743, Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Social Interactions and Order & Logic A Unit Plan for English IV/British Literature By Brittany Torres Stage 1—Desired Results Established Goals (from NC Standard Course of Study, Common Core State Standards, etc.): Common Core Reading Standards for Literature, Grades 11-12 • •

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. Determine two or more themes or central ideas of a text and analyze their development over the course of the text, including how they interact and build on one another to produce a complex account; provide an objective summary of the text.

Common Core Writing Standards, Grades 11-12 • •

Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence. Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, wellchosen details, and well-structured event sequences.

Common Core Speaking and Listening Standards, Grades 11-12 •

Integrate multiple sources of information presented in diverse formats and media (e.g., visually, quantitatively, orally) in order to make informed decisions and solve problems, evaluating the credibility and accuracy of each source and noting any discrepancies among the data

Understandings: Students will understand that . . .

Essential Questions: •

To get beyond our misconceptions and preconceptions about different people we must read texts that directly deal with different kinds of people. Many teenagers have the same issues in their lives and these teach lifelong lessons that will last into adulthood. Personal narratives have the power to teach others, and ourselves, important lessons about the past, present and future. Works of literature contain messages that can help the reader not only understand the world within the text but also their own world. The way an author structures a narrative influences our understanding of key scenes, builds suspense, and contributes to the main themes of the work.

• •

How does literature allow us to live vicariously through another person? How do our preconceptions of people different than us hinder or help us understand them? What are the risks of making such preconceptions about different people before really learning about them? How do literary techniques inform our understanding of the literary work? Specifically, how does the use of similes, metaphors, and point-of-view work to develop the main themes of the novel? What do we learn about Christopher’s life and how can that apply to our own lives? What lessons does Chris teach us about life? Why do stories about other people affect us? Is there a moral or underlying meaning to every personal narrative? How can we affect others with our personal stories?

These groups will serve as their learning groups for the next activity.

The current event article that they are receiving has been adjusted to a lower lexile range so that all students could feel successful and be able to comprehend the material. Also students will have guided notes and graphic organizers to help make the note taking process easier, while still forcing them to find the information and use textual evidence. How will you adjust aspects of the lesson to accommodate students’ INTERESTS? The student’s often bicker about what men and women should be and do, I am hoping that with the article they will get a chance to further debate that issue and be intrigued by the topic. Students may have family members or friends with one of these syndromes and may be able to relate or understand to the discussion.

See What Had Happened Was… The novel is told entirely from Christopher Boone’s point-of-view, but what about the other characters? There are other voices to be heard and you are going to bring them to life! For this quiz assignment, you will write and perform a monologue from one of the other character’s point-of-view. Your monologue will be about what you think the character would say if they were able to share their side of the story. Your monologue must be no less than 30 full lines and an accurate prediction of the character’s point of view. Please be creative, for this will count as a quiz grade. This monologue will be turned in and performed on Monday, Nov. 4, 2013.
