Fill out your Participation Rubric.

Write in complete sentences on the back: What is the best quality you offer a partner?

R

A

The best quality I offer a partner would have to be my unrelenting focus.  If my partner or someone near us, threatens to pull us off task, by talking about something personal, for example, I will reliably draw us right back to the work we're supposed to be doing.  I'll usually point to wherever we left off and ask a question like, "So, what did we decide to annotate right here in the story?"  If that doesn't work, I go ahead and annotate it and ask my partner to see if it looks correct, giving that person a specific task that will, hopefully, focus my partner's attention back on our work.

R = Restate the question

A = Answer it

P = Prove my answer with evidence or an example

T = Thoroughly explain how my proof proves my point

Write margin notes all over!

  • How does she feel about herself?

  • How does she see her sister?  

  • How does she feel about her sister?

  • How does her mother see her now?  In the future?

  • How does her mother's view of her influence the way she sees herself?

  • What does it mean to

    1. "decided not to grow up tame" like the others who

    2. "lay their necks on the threshold"

    3. "waiting for the ball and chain."

  • Why does the author say there's always a woman in the movies with "red red lips"?  

  • Why not just "red"?

  • What does it mean if a woman "drives the men crazy and laughs them all away"? 

  • What does it mean if your power is your own and you don't give it away?

  • Remember how Cisneros feels about herself at the start of the story.

  • How is she different from the movie women?

  • What does Cisneros want to be like as a woman?

  • How will she become that woman?

  • What does she mean by "I have begun my own “quiet war”. I …”leave[s] the table like a man, without putting back the chair or picking up the plate"?

  • How can these actions help her become the woman she wants to be?

Beautiful & Cruel by Sandra Cisneros (from The House on Mango Street)

I am an ugly daughter. I am the one nobody comes for.

Nenny says she won't wait her whole life for a husband to come and get her, that Minerva's sister left her mother's house by having a baby, but she doesn't want to go that way either. She wants things all her own, to pick and choose. Nenny has pretty eyes and it's easy to talk that way if you are pretty.

My mother says when I get older my dusty hair will settle and my blouse will learn to stay clean, but I have decided not to grow up tame like the others who lay their necks on the threshold waiting for the ball and chain.

In the movies there is always one with red red lips who is beautiful and cruel. She is the one who drives the men crazy and laughs them all away. Her power is her own. She will not give it away.

I have begun my own quiet war. Simple. Sure. I am one who leaves the table like a man, without putting back the chair or picking up the plate.

  • Where do the poor live?

  • Why do the rich sometimes look down?

  • What worries poor people but not rich people?

  • What does Cisneros want?

  • But how will she be different from the rich people?

  • What will she actually do to be different?

  • Why does she want to be different from the rich people?

Bums in the Attic by Sandra Cisneros (from The House on Mango Street)

I want a house on a hill like the ones with the gardens where Papa works. We go on Sundays, Papa's day off. I used to go. I don't anymore. You don't like to go out with us, Papa says. Getting too old? Getting too stuck-up, says Nenny. I don't tell them I am ashamed—all of us staring out the window like the hungry. I am tired of looking at what we can't have. When we win the lottery . . . Mama begins, and then I stop listening.

People who live on hills sleep so close to the stars they forget those of us who live too much on earth. They don't look down at all except to be content to live on hills. They have nothing to do with last week's garbage or fear of rats. Night comes. Nothing wakes them but the wind.

One day I'll own my own house, but I won't forget who I am or where I came from. Passing bums will ask, Can I come in? I'll offer them the attic, ask them to stay, because I know how it is to be without a house.

 Some days after dinner, guests and I will sit in front of a fire. Floorboards will squeak upstairs. The attic grumble.

Rats? they'll ask.

Bums, I'll say, and I'll be happy.

RAPT Writing Practice

Whenever you speak or write, assume your audience doesn’t have a clue what you are talking/writing about.

R If you don’t restate the question somewhere in your response, your audience will spend most of their time trying to figure out what you’re talking/writing about.

AIf you don’t answer in detail, they will only get a superficial (fluffy) idea of what you’re thinking.

P If you don’t use an example or evidence, they will think you don’t really have any proof to back up your idea.

TIf you don’t thoroughlyexplain your proof, they will wonder whether it really proves what you’re saying or whether you just threw something out there hoping it will help prove your point.
