English 10: We worked on the reading comprehension skill of determining importance today. Students searched through the text of "The Pit and the Pendulum" to find words that connected to the human feelings of fear, obsession, anticipation, and helplessness. The next step is to choose one of those words and complete one of the following activities:
a) text-to-self connection: put that word as the title at the top of your page. Write a one page double spaced piece that describes a time in your life when you experienced this emotion. b) text-to-text connection: Think about your word and find another text that reminds you of that emotion. The text could be a song, poem, picture, movie, story, etc. Write a half page piece explaining why the text you have chosen connects with the word from our story. c) text-to-world connection: Think about your word and how it connects to something that is happening in the world, in your community, or in your school. This piece should be one page double spaced.
d) If you enjoy drawing, you can create a visualization of the word. Remember that tone is essential.
Assignment is due on Monday.
