The So What of I, II, IIIs

The Little I’ve Noticed

slide2

What follows are the things I’ve noticed over 10 years of teaching sentence patterns I-III.

  • I’m a slow thinker so you might learn them much quicker than I would, but these few insights might are intended to help you shape or refine your understandings.
i iii anagnorisis
I-III = anagnorisis
  • In Greek it is “anagnorisis”, that moment of complete self-understanding. Anagnorisis is different than “epiphany”, which is a general moment of understanding.
  • Often, though not always, these moments of naked, raw understanding are patterns I-III.
  • Suddenly, all the fancy language and tour de force stuff are gone and the information is just the straight stuff.
what are they
What Are They?
  • With a partner. What are some of the most memorable “anagnorises” for you?
i iii
I-III= =
  • Patterns I-IIIs power is how they move the information, the sentence’s punch away from the verb and towards the Third Slot. It’s confident.
  • This is this. This = this.
  • E= mc2
  • a2 + b2 = c2
metaphors and similes
Metaphors and Similes
  • Pattern II is the simile class. “I’m like a bird”
  • Pattern III is the metaphor class. “The beast in me is caged by frail and fragile bars”
  • Metaphors and similes are the strongest and most common ways we “make meaning” and bridge the gap btw each other and our experiences and our own different experiences. Patterns II and III are what we use.
thesis or categorical statements
Thesis or Categorical Statements
  • Patterns I-III are the sentences we (often) use when we either set up syllogisms, conditionals (if p then q), and truth tables.
  • I-III are the sentences we use to create arguable, inarguable and categorical statements (what we might call “good” or “bad” thesis statements:
    • Chunky Monkey is delicious.
    • Polamalu is Defensive Player of the Year.
    • All life is sacred.

  • Were you aware that every single sentence in this power point was a I-III?
