Collection of Ideas

Page history last edited by Jayson Yeagley 8 years, 9 months ago

 

A COLLECTION OF IDEAS 

 

1. You must make a plan that is to be approved by me:  This is due on Thursday of this week and presented to the class on this Friday (a few minutes).  The plan will include specifics including when assignments will be completed and how you will present the progress for each (format)

2. Each Wednesday Night you must update your page and folder with the weekly work that is due including your updated bibliography.

3. You must present your ideas and progress along the way via your Youtube channel each Friday.  The goal of this is to not only discuss your progress, but also to discuss ideas that you notice.  You need to keep this to about a 2-3 minutes activity.

4. The last week of the nine weeks you will prepare a research style paper that blends your newly used knowledge with a bibliography.

 

 

This nine weeks you are on a mission… to gather, read, and present written works in different formats that all share a common theme: in other words, you will be searching for and analyzing literature that addresses or relates to your chosen topic.  The end result will be a research paper with a bibliography to present the info.

 

1. Click here for a list of genres: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ci/rl/ll/litrlgenres.asp

 

 

The works you collect will have to meet certain requirements as follows:

  • representative of different times periods (minimum 5),
  • representative of different cultural perspectives (minimum 5),
  • written by both male and female writers (neither gender may be more than 70% of your total number),
  • reflecting different– and opposing– perspectives on the topics addressed in your book.

 

For each piece that you select, you will need to annotate and critically analyze it. The process will go like this:

  1. While reading, take notes either in the margins of the text and/or on your wiki.  The purpose of the notes is to help you write a thoughtful wiki entry pertaining to the piece.  You will have one page per type (a page for the novel, and page for the short stories, a page for the poems, a page for the essays, a page for the speeches and a page for the other works.
  2. Use your notes to fill out the analysis worksheet or to write your journal entry, and eventually, for some selected pieces,
  3. Write an annotated bibliographical entry for each piece that you decide is worthy of becoming a part of your collection.

 

As a minimum, you must include the following in your collection (in addition to the other requirements noted above):

  • 1 novel (classic canon) 
  • 5 short stories (to include 3 genres) a link to the short story is needed on the page (see me if this is a problem)
  • 5 poems (poem included for entry with author and title)
  • 10 essays, articles, or news stories 
  • 3 speeches with link provided
  • 7 “OTHER” works that do not fit into any of the categories listed above- ie song lyrics, graphic novels, monologues, photography, artwork, editorial cartoons, statues, monuments, architecture, Internet-only resources (can be entire websites, or blogs, podcasts, e-journals, etc.) etc. Think about it: what does the Taj Mahal say about love or death? The Mona Lisa? The Ka’aba? How might these be included in your collection?

 

IMPORTANT: The list above represents  the number of items that you will read and analyze. The items that you include in your final product– an annotated bibliography- will be determined later. In the end you will select only those that you believe are worthy of your collection. It is up to you to define what “worthy of your collection” means.

Keep your eyes and ears open for ideas. Think of this class as an opportunity to open your mind to new formats that you had never before considered.

Some things to consider is:

  • the language of literary analysis,
  • the rules of annotation,
  • the correct way to cite your sources, and
  • effective search strategies for locating the best of the best.

 

These are the tools you need to succeed.  It is up to you to apply these tools and skills to your final product. 

 

At the end of the nine weeks, you will have a record of what you read and what you thought about it. You will create an annotated bibliography with a list of recommended readings and visuals for others who wish to know more about your core book. You will also write essays to sum up what you noticed through your reading. Plan to share your findings along the way. We are a community of learners, not just a group of individuals working side-by-side. Together, we will build our collections and then benefit from both our journey as well as the arrival at this final goal.  This info was borrowed and then adapted from Mrs. Thomas (thanks)
