Day Thirty-Six--Happy Monday!
March 2nd , 2015

When You Come In

  2. Drop your phone in the phone hostage center.  Put your phone BEHIND your name card, please.

Big Idea for Our Last Ten Days Together:  Strategy Work:  Literary Archetypes
  1. We keep telling the same stories over and over again--why?
  2. If you know what to look for, you’re  better able to see patterns in what you’re reading.
  3. The purpose of today’s work  is to familiarize ourselves with literary archetypes in more detail.
  4. Take a look at the definition of a literary archetype and our master list of archetypes:
  5. Let’s look at a place to record examples of these archetypes.  This is where you will do you work today:

Let’s do these together now:

Big-Picture Thinking:  Archetypes!
Where would you put these plots?
  1. High School Musical 1
  2. Finding Nemo
  3. Holes
  4. Star Wars
  5. The Dark Knight
  6. Inception
  7. Gravity
  8. She’s the Man
  9. Silver Linings Playbook
  10. Shrek

ASSIGNMENT (on schoology)
  1. Put your last name in front of the title, and make sure the doc is clearly visible in the appropriate google folder.
  2. Fill in as many blanks as you can in the twenty minutes of work time I give you.  Hint:  even if you average only one a minute, you should have AT LEAST twenty archetype examples--and that is a bare-bones minimum.
  3. Use the books you’ve read this term as possibilties.
  4. Feel free to skip around!  Don’t get stuck on one blank!
  5. Read the detailed explanations for what each archetype is.  I want you to learn what the various archetypes are, so you will recognize them in the future.  How will you learn them if you have no idea what they are?

Pair-Share (started rond 1 @ 11:15; round 2 @11:23; round 3 @ 11:28;
  1. Discuss your examples so far.
  2. A Word of Caution:  Poach answers from each other as desired.  (Don’t poach if you’ve never heard of the movie/story/etc.)
  3. This goes for your own individual answers as well.  If you’re researching movies or shows that have a mountain setting, that’s great--but make sure you’ve seen the moview--otherwise, that is not an example you’re going to be to remember or speak about in detail.
  4. Each of you share your findings, and continue to fill in your individual spreadsheet.

We did not have any time to read and relax today.
