R&W: Kincaid Work

We first began by discussing the reading in small groups using our homework of a-e requirements to delve into a conversation. You got points for participating.

You were then placed into small groups of three to complete this X–> Y paragraph assignment regarding the Bahamas ad and Kincaid’s chapter.

The small group 10-15 sentence paragraph you should have began in class is due by Sunday night at 11:59 p.m. Only 1 person for group needs to upload it to turnitin.com. Here are four sample paragraphs to use as examples

R&W: Notice/Focus Work Concluded + Intro to A Small Place

Today, after we finished our notice and focus work with the 2013 Super Bowl Bahamas Tourism ad and we wrote a N + F/ x–> y paragraph in our notebooks, you were assigned a chapter reading by Jamaica Kincaid, an Antiguan-American author, and her mostly non-fiction (some is slightly fictionalized, however) and part auto-biographical book, A Small Place. Follow the attached directions and annotate the first chapter in class (to be finished for homework). You are sending me your best one (one that will help us enter into a conversation) of the following that you are completing after reading by midnight tonight (you must complete all 5, but only 1 needs to be emailed):

  1. a 2-sentence summary of her argument
  2. 2 questions you have about the reading
  3. 1 quote that you agree with, with explanation as to your agreement
  4. 1 quote that you find disturbing, problematic, or that you take issue with in some way with explanation
  5. A 2-sentence explanation as to how this reading may connect to the Bahamas ad viewed

(make sure to cite both quotes for later reference)

R&W: Intro to Globalization

After we finished our partner projects, I handed out the globalization calendar and we discussed the goals for the unit using this TEDTalk by Ian Goldin to begin to shape our understanding of what Globalization, a very complicated, multi-faceted topic, entails. After this, I introduced the Notice and Focus work you would be doing with this Superbowl Ad about visiting the Bahamas. We will continue with this tomorrow.

Here’s some additional information about the Bahamas as well as a helpful handout regarding Encoding and Decoding to assist in deciphering between meanings that are apparent and those that are below the surface.

R&W: Partner Presentations

We had a bell work to begin the hour regarding the importance of getting to know one’s co-workers. Afterwards, we began our partner intro presentations. You wrote down one interesting thing about each person in our notebooks. We will finish up tomorrow.

The pronoun grammar work assigned yesterday is due tomorrow. We will go over it after partner presentations. I will also be assigning your semester-long project tomorrow: the digital portfolio.
