Tuesday, 10/7

Picking up where we left off Friday, students reviewed setting, mood, & tone as well as the claim I had given them for the power paragraph outline on the first five minutes of Wall-E. We then re-watched this clip from the film while students completed a T-chart of details that were either bleak or hopeful. Students then worked on a power paragraph outline using their best examples. A paragraph from this outline will be due next class. Switching gears somewhat, we reviewed theme using a note-taking handout, and then students continued watching the film while taking notes that will help them to figure out the theme once we finish. Homework: finish the setting/mood/tone power paragraph you should have outlined in class today.
