Common Core Reading
Hopkins High School
11th Grade CC Independent Reading Unit:
“The primary purpose for this unit is for students to read a significant number of pages in and out of school daily. To prioritize volume of reading, in-class reading time must be 30-35 minutes daily.”
“The unit is designed to follow the Launching Unit, and can kick off students’ independent reading for the year.”
This handout starts out 6th grade reading. The assumption is that students will be able to use these ideas in the subsequent years to select appropriate books (although this lesson reoccurs in a few of the subsequent years). Throughout 6-12, teachers will still need to be mindful of helping students to select books and using conferencing to check on student selection.

“Michael Vick Not Sure He’s Got Another 4-12 Season in Him” “PHILADELPHIA—Newly re-signed Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, 32, revealed in a candid interview Thursday that he’s not confident he has another 4-12 season left in him. “If you’re asking me to be totally honest, I’m not sure lightning can strike twice and I’ll be able to perform like I did last season again,” said Vick, adding that given his age and the particular situation in Philadelphia, most players would feel fortunate to reach two wins. “Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m going to play my hardest in hopes of reaching six or seven wins, but after being in the league for as long as I have, you begin to realize what’s possible and what’s not.” In the wake of Vick’s comments, second-year backup quarterback Nick Foles said that if the situation arises, he’s more than ready to step in for any number of hard-fought losses.”
Obama Wastes Our Money On Himself

Barrack Obama has been accused of squandering the American's tax dollars on himself and his extraordinarily extravagant life style.
Over the past weekend Obama has been holed up at the Floridian Golf Club playing golf with Tiger Woods and has not allowed himself once to be photographed by the press contingent of disgruntled media pundits who have been left 'cooling their heels' in the Holiday Inn.
Angry pundits have accused Obama of 'being selfish' and of squandering the taxpayers 'hard earned cash' on a life of luxury and indolence.
Michelle Obama or 'Marie Antoinette' has mean while been enjoying another taxpayers funded 'jolly' skiing in Aspen with daughters Malia and Sasha. Her 'let them eat cake attitude' is really getting on the 'nerves' of ordinary Americans.
Obama and his wife, Michelle, have relished living it up in luxury at the White House in a style fit for a King and have lavished luxuries on themselves and their family.
Michelle Obama has been accused of being a 'material girl' and of being on a 'permanent vacation'. Barrack is inordinately fond of having 'golf days'. The Obamas love 'junketing' around the US on Air Force One.
One commentator said that Barrack and Michelle are 'only in it for the freebies' and his never known a president to 'cash in' so blatantly into the 'millionaire lifestyle'.
Whilst normal mortals are struggling to pay for basic necessities the Obamas are seen 'wallowing in excess'.
One disillusioned aide said, "They pretend to come from a poor, working class background but are living like kings." Some Republicans have dismissed them as 'vulgar' and 'nouveau riche' in the way they flaunt their designer clothes and their rock-star lifestyle.
Fox News have dubbed Barrack and Michelle Obama as America's 'royal couple'. "it has been one long party at our expense for the King and Queen at the court of Camelot; but so little good taste."
It has been said whilst telling other Americans to 'forego their annual vacation' the Obamas were blatantly seen going skiing and playing golf at the public's expense.
“Horatian Satire…playfully criticizes some social vice through gentle, mild, and light-hearted humor. It directs wit, exaggeration, and self-deprecating humor toward what it identifies as folly, rather than evil. Horatian satire’s sympathetic tone is common in modern society.”
An understanding of Satire can require knowledge of the specific time period or culture.

Why/how would knowing the cultural background help your understanding?
What wrong in each world do the authors suggest need to be fixed?
