  • Progression – Today you will begin to work with phrases and clauses, in order to learn when and how to use, semi-colons, colons, and commas. Take the pretest on page 295 in your notebook. Elect a team leader. The team leader will see me for the answer key when you have all finished. If we have computers today, send me your score and any questions you have about what you are about to learn using the Google protocol, keyword :confused.

  • Reflection–
    • Compare- 2 poems by the same poet. How are they recognizable by the poet’s diction and voice? How are the poems different in theme, style, genre, or mood? (use the Daybooks)
    • Differentiate – read an online version of “Little Red Riding Hood” or “The Frog Prince.” Then, read “Annunciation” as a companion to “The Frog Prince” (Daybook 110) or “Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf” (see poetry link for access to the “poetry packet.”
      • What are the differences between the fairy tales? Why do you think the author made those changes: humor, theme, another reason?
      • Keyword - poemdiff

  • Students will read and investigate “The Weary Blues” by Langston Hughes (Daybook 19.)
    • Students will view the following video link that encompasses a dramatic reading of the poem with images from 1920s Harlem nightlife and music
