Today we started an assignment to do with interpreting a poem into an image (of varying media).
Here is the assignment and rubric. We will continue to look at this tomorrow and we'll discuss the rubric then.
Your Figures of Speech Visual Dictionary is DUE TOMORROW. All of the descriptions for the figures of speech are in the document below.
Your visual dictionaries with all completed definitions, examples, and visuals are due this Friday October 20. Your First Nations wrap up paragraph goes as follows: Rough copy for peer editing is due Wednesday October 18 and the good copy is also due on Friday October 20.
In order to wrap up the project, you will need to think as an anthropologist (someone who studies people and their cultures) write one paragraph (8-10 sentences) about what First Nations cultures in Canada have in common. This is based on the presentations given by you and your classmates. You’ll have to think critically about the different groups and why their culture is the way it is!
Tomorrow you will have an opportunity to talk to people researching other First Nations to discover common practices between the groups.
Here are a few presentations with information to get you thinking:
We're checking the simile section of your Figurative Language Visual Dictionary tomorrow. It needs to be fully finished!
Today we have started creating a visual dictionary to keep track of the different figures of speech. The assignment is below.
We started with imagery which is language that appeals to the senses. It creates an image in our minds using sight, touch, taste, smell or hearing.
If you didn't finish in class, your job was to divide two pages of your visual journal in half (front and back) and write the definition and an example in the first half.
