World Lit: Welcome back from break!

Standard: ELAGSE9-10RL2 Determine a theme or central idea of text and closely analyze its development over the course of the text, including how it emerges and is shaped and refined by specific details; provide an objective summary of the text.

Learning Target: I can conduct a comparative analysis between texts with similar themes.

Opening Session: The Second Coming by Yeats, read by Dominic West

Work Session: Welcome back! Let’s talk about POETRY!!!

Flip in your Springboard books to page 259. We’re going to read two poems today, “Prayer to the Masks” and “The Second Coming.” Both of these poems connect to Things Fall Apart, and we will explore these connections in the Second Read Questions.

After we go over these questions together, I want to unpack the upcoming Embedded Assessment. This will be an in-class Literary Analysis essay, and you will have two days to work on it. We will do prewriting/brainstorming together the first day, and the second day you will actually write the essay during our block.

Also, FYI, due to testing this week we are on a weird schedule for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, and we have extra-long classes (especially on Wednesday).
