U2 Life Is a Journey: TEWWG Tuesday Standard: Reading for All Purposes Objective: to read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it, citing specific evidence to support conclusions drawn from the text. Relevance: What we say and how we say it, our actions, our attitudes, and our appearances leave impressions on others. Essential Questions: What determines ones values? How do these values shape our lives? What is significant in developing our psychological and moral growth? What kinds of experiences lead to the discovery of self- identity? How do symbols function in our everyday world? How do they affect us? How are we defined or represented by our surroundings? What role does story play in our lives? What lessons can we (as a people) derive from stories? How can I/we apply them in ways that will transform the present situation into something better? Is a happy or resolved ending necessary in a literary work? Why or why not? What are the benefits and drawback to either? How do literary devices and stylistic techniques create purpose and meaning? How are literary devices used to create power dynamics between characters and social conventions? What role do gender and/or class have in structuring relationships? How should power in a relationship be distributed? What is happiness? Are we able to be in command of our own happiness or is it out of our control? Activity: Apply We Do Tuesday Purposes: To identify similarities and differences in the way in which the discussion group functioned and interacted to the way in which your groups did To re-examine the opening of the book in relation to some of the topics discussed within this group. Tasks: As you listen to the 9 minute discussion, keep the questions below in mind in order to respond later.1.What about their discussion was similar to yours? What was different? 2.What did they do as a discussion group that you could consider incorporating into you discussion? 3.What ideas about the novel were re-enforced listening to this group? 4.What ideas are new? Outcome: Meet with your fishbowl partner. Share you observation from feedback. Discuss the questions above. Activity: Apply We Do Tuesday Consider the following: The discussion group has a spirited debate about a thematic topic concerning the individual vs. the collective and the right to privacy as a member of a community. Think about how Hurston characterizes the group versus how she characterizes Janie. Is the group a character? How does Janie stand out from the rest? How does Hurston make this distinction? How does Hurston explore this theme in the excerpt? What has Janie done to break out of the collective? Do any other characters show signs of individualism? Cite specific examples from the excerpt. The narration in the excerpt is figurative and distinct; the dialogue is colloquial and dialect-heavy. Why do you think Hurston's voice is so different from the voice(s) of her characters? What bearing does this storytelling choice have on the idea of the individual vs. the collective? Think about the first two paragraphs of the excerpt and Hurston's figurative language. What do the ships represent? What is she saying about dreams and men? About truth and women? Why isn't she more explicit about what she's trying to say? How do you see the meaning of the first paragraph playing itself out in the rest of the text?
