As We Read:
- Read first 2 paragraphs and summarize what you know so far about Yoni’s project.
- Key vocab: what does “poignant” mean? How will Yoni’s plans to create a film be poignant?
- Click on ” Close Read” icon in your digital textbook
- view screencast
- write notes on the techniques reader uses to close read the text
- let’s do the next paragraph (p4)
- Idiom= “Cash out”
- what does this mean?
- Cite evidence to help you fully understand Yoni’s character and intentions. Use the Characterization Chart below.
- While looking at the teacher’s outline of the story, create a Characterization Chart for Sergei. How does he differ from Yonatan?
- Analyze: How does Sergei’s culture impact his POV in “What, of This Goldfish, Would You Wish?”
- Research: Find a fairy tale with either a similar OR different central idea (theme) than our short story.
- Step 1: In paragraph format, explain the similarities or differences. You MUST use textual evidence in your explanation. In addition to fully elaborating, use in-text citations for the information pulled from the folktale.
- Step 2: Exchange your fairy tale with a partner. Read the new tale you have been given and then synthesize the idea presented in each text. Use the following questions to aid your synthesis:
- 1st paragraph: summarize each text.
- 2nd paragraph: What do the texts have in common? How are the different? Central ideas?
- 3rd paragraph: Make broader connections. What do the themes presented say about the world we live in? How do the central ideas presented in the text relate to real life?
- Making Connections: Draw a political cartoon to compare the relationship between the Israelis and Palestinians in real- life and how they interact in the story.
