Is this good for someone to do when writing a memoir? Explain in 4-5 sentences why or why not? 2. Why does Walter prefer his name to be Walter Myers? 3. In this chapter we are introduced to Walter’s “bad” behaviors. What “bad” behaviors did he do, and do you think he understood theseriousness of his actions?

In what ways is it insensitive to racial differences? 5. Who is the subject of Walter’s first published poem? 6. Describe in 2-3 sentences (underline 1 compound-complex) how bullying can negatively impact the person who is being bullied.

  23. Textual evidence and in-text citations:

  24. Why do you need to cite information? • When you are writing a paper that includes information from a source, you must give credit to the person who wrote it.

  25. There is 3 ways to cite information • Quoting: Writing a direct line from a text • Paraphrasing: Writing information from a text in your own words • Summarizing: Writing a summary on an entire text in your own words

  26. NO matter which way you cite your information, you must give credit to the author who originally wrote it Quoting: the use of direct words that is identical to the original, therefore matching the source document word for word. “quotation marks” (author’s last name, page number). “Each of us is born with a history already in place. There are physical aspects that make us brown-eyed or blue-eyed, that make us tall or not so tall, or give us curly or straight hair” (Myers, 1). According to Myers, “Each of us is born with a history already in place” (1). Paraphrasing: the use of a passage from the source document into your own words, therefore it usually is shorter than the original passage, taking a somewhat broader segment of the source and condensing it slightly. Paraphrase (page number). Everyone is unique in their own way, whether it’s how we look or how we act, we are each born with a history all ready in line for us (Myers,1). Summarizing: the use of putting the main idea(s) into your own words, which includes only the main point(s). Like a paraphrase it will be significantly shorter than the original document; takes a broader overview. Walter Dean Myers faced many obstacles his life, but racial discrimination in the biggest obstacle he faced. After reading the book Bad Boy, I was able to see how he struggled growing up. Even though he made some bad decisions, he never let himself see his skin color, nor did that stop him from following his dream to become a writer.

  27. Chapter #6 Mr. Irwin Lasher • In Mr. Lasher’s sixth-grade class, Walter’s grades and behavior improved. Why do youthink Walter does better in this class than in previous classes? • Why do you think Walter tells his father that his mother beat him rather thanadmitting the truth-that he was injured trying to hitch a ride on a taxi? Do you think Walter’s lie is justifiable and why? • (Explain each question in 4-5 sentences; underline 1 compound, 1 complex sentence)

  28. Chapter #6 Mr. Irwin Lasher What makes a good teacher?

  29. Chapter #7 I Am Not the Center of the Universe • After you and finished annotating, answer questions 1 and 3 by citing textual evidence and using an in-text citation • Ex: “Each of us is born with a history already in place” (Myers 1). • 1. What challenges did Walter go through to help him grow/mature to discover a new identity for himself? • 2. Does it always take extreme circumstances to overcome a challenge? Explain why or why not? • 3. What role did self reflection play in Walter’s personal growth?

  30. Point of view

  31. Point of view • Who is telling the story/ How the story is being told • First person: shows the action through the eyes of one of the characters. This character, narrator, uses the pronouns I, me, my, our, and us. • Second person: has a narrator who uses the pronoun you to address the reader directly • Third person: has a narrator who does not take part in the action of the story and who uses the pronouns he, she, him, her, they and them when describing the characters. • Omniscient: a method of storytelling in which the narrator knows the thoughts and feelings of all of the characters in the story • Limited: the narrator knows the thoughts and feelings to one character's perspective.

  32. Style and purpose

  33. Author’s style • How something is said or written (not what is said) • When thinking about style, first consider the clothes people wear, like we looked at with labels. Whatever they wear, people choose clothes to express themselves and their own personal style. • Authors have style too, but it's not a clothing style, it’s called literary style. Writers express their ideas in specific ways by using just the right word and putting it in just the right place. A literary style reflects the author's personality and the purpose for their writing. It’s not what they are saying, but how they are saying it.

  34. Style How something is said or written (not what is said) • Word choice • Sentence length • Figurative language • Tone

  35. Author’s Purpose An author’s purpose is the reason an author decides to write about a specific topic. • Persuade • Inform • Entertain • Explain (gives ideas to the reader)

  36. Chapter #10 Heady Days at Stuyvesant High • In 3-4 paragraphs re-write an event in this chapter from another character’s (Florence Dean, William Dean, or Herbert Dean) perspective or point of view. • How does POV change the overall feel of the story? Is the story being told differently than how Walter is telling it? How so? • Describe, in 2-3 sentences, Walter’s writing style in this chapter.

  37. Chapter #11 The Garment Center • Cite two pieces of textual evidence to support why Walter was doing “bad” in school. Remember to use a direct quotation and an in-text citation to support your answer. Also, support your textual evidence with 2 sentences
