Yesterday you were assigned groups & were told to share the stories connected to your pictures.
On Friday, 08/29 in the computer lab, start creating a larger collaborative story using each of the images in your group. You can use data from your existing stories, from the work we did flip-flopping in class on Wednesday, or you can start all over from scratch. Do what you can in the time allotted.
Save your work in one group member’s F: drive, but also save to the H: drive (UserFiles, Borger, Lit-Lang 3 Folder). I will be giving participation points using the artifacts in the H: drive, so if it isn’t saved there = no points for you!
Make sure all members’ names are on the story, & use MLA format.
Using the story they created in lab Mon & Tues, students will engage in an inversion activity – they will swap pictures with a peer and write for 15 minutes. Then they will share, compare, contrast, & discuss different versions / interpretations of the same image. On Thursday, students will collaborate & compose a longer selection using the combination of their individual stories. On Friday, students will return to the lab to revamp / renew / reconstruct their work with new eyes this time. Group collaboration days will be graded using the Participation Points scale.
Each student will be given an image at the beginning of class. Students will be asked to compose a detailed story using the image as creative motivation. Students will compose for the entire hour on Monday 08/25. Students should write without stopping and should spend the entire hour writing. A single paragraph at the end of the hour will not be substantial enough to earn a solid grade for this assignment.
This assignment is worth 50 points.
Lit & Lang 3 students took a quiz over Borger’s Syllabus & the updated SHS Student Handbook on Friday 08/22.
Students should have a notebook for Lit/Lang 3 and blue/black ink pens for use. Work written in pencil will not earn credit. All work in class should be completed following MLA Format.
