  14. Passage Picker Your job is to locate a few special selections of the text that your group would like to hear read aloud. The purpose is to help your group members remember some interesting, powerful, funny, puzzling, or important sections of the text. You should select passages or paragraphs worth hearing and then jot down plans for how they can be shared. You may read the passages aloud yourself, ask someone else to read them, or have your group members read them silently. Possible reasons for picking a passage: Important Informative Confusing Conversational Surprising Controversial Funny/Amusing Dialect Informative Interesting Descriptive Historical Frightening/Scary Mysterious Persuasive Fantasy Math Moral Entertaining Step-By-Step Intriguing Theme Scientific Illustration and how it relates to passage Well Written Confusing Plan for Sharing: -Pick the passage you would like to share -Write down the page and paragraph number of the passage. -Write down the reason your chose this passage and EXPLAIN WHY! -Ask a question about the chosen passage and give an answer. -Write down the author’s purpose: To describe, To Entertain, To Persuade, To Inform Passage Picker Example from The Butterfly Back to Literature Circle Jobs

  15. Passage Picker Example Page 13 paragraph 2 “Sevrine pulled up the door, and they both climbed down a very narrow set of stairs into a part of the cellar that Monique didn’t even know existed. The walls were scraped clean, and there was a small table with a tiny tray and supper dishes on it. Monique could see another small room with cots. It looked like people were sleeping on them.” Reason Chosen: descriptive and frightening I chose this passage because the author creates a picture of the hiding place and it makes me feel scared for Sevrine. Where is the hiding place located in the house? Above or Below Ground? How do you know? The hiding place is located below the house because the author says that they climbed down the stairs and into the cellar. Author’s Purpose: To Inform and Describe Back to Passage Picker Back to Literature Circle Jobs

  27. Charles De Gaulle French general and first president of the Fifth Republic (1958–69), born in Lille, N France. He fought in World War 1, he wanted to make the French Army more modern. With the fall of France (Jun 1940), he left to go to England to raise the standard of the ‘Free French’, and entered Paris in the vanguard of one of the earliest liberation forces (Aug 1944). He became head of the provisional government, then withdrew to the political sidelines. After WWII, Charles De Gaulle became the leader of France during the Kennedy Administration in the 1960’s .
