  3. Ice breakers I can record 3 things about each person after writing his/her name • What’s in your wallet • Directions: • Virtual wallet – select 5 items from your wallet or purse to share with us, tell us your name then: • 1) draw or describe the item in writing • 2) we will make three assumptions about you based on that item • 3) tell us why you chose that item • 4) repeat your name • What’s in a name? • Directions • 1) Write down the story behind your name. ~ if you don’t know then you could write about a name you wish you had or another name you like, find unusual, or funny. • 2) Share the story behind your name with the class (e.g. why that name was chosen, what it means, who they were named after, other people they know who have the same name, any nicknames they have, etc.). • 3) I will make notes as you will about each person in the room and his/her name • *** Rememeber to respect the name that that person wants to be called or is called. • Ex: My name is Amy. I was named after my father’s mother. My parents were going to go with the French spelling Aimee, but decided Amy would ultimately be easier for me and others to spell. Amy means "beloved" and has a Latin base in the word for love. There were six Amys in my neighborhood when I was growing up. It was the second most popular name when I was born. Etc, etc,.

  8. Example of a heading for Mr. Norton’s class 1 Joe Student Mr. Norton Advanced Placement January 26, 201x The Title of My Paper or assignment This is where the paper begins. Notice that it is indented. This example is from Packer and Timpane (401). Of course I would provide a works cited page if this were a real paper. The top of the next page upper right would be Student 2 for the name. Every page including works cited will follow this format. See pages 207 – 236 in text book, and page 269 for APA styling. When you go to college – find out and get a great personal copy of a book on formatting for research.

  9. Sentences pt. 1 • What Is a Sentence? • A sentence is a group of words that expresses a complete thought. • A sentence contains a subject (noun) and a predicate (verb). • If a group of words does not contain a subject and a predicate, it is not • a sentence; it is a fragment. • Examples: Ramon ran to the store. (sentence) • Ran to the store. (fragment) why? • Make two of your own – highlight the subject underline the predicate • Read the following groups of words. Write S on the line if it is a sentence. Highlight and underline as before. Write F on the line if it is a fragment. • 1. Kim took her driver’s test yesterday. • 2. She failed. • 3. Will take it again next month. • 4. She is extremely disappointed. • 5. Practice makes perfect. • 6. Making left-hand turns.

  10. Sentences pt. 2: Subjects and Predicates • Remember that a sentence is a group of words that contains a subject and a predicate. A subject is a noun or pronoun, and a predicate is a verb. • Example: Brooke tiptoed down the hallway. Highlight & underline. • (Brooke is the subject, and tiptoed is the predicate.) • Read the following sentences. After each sentence, highlight & undeline and then write the subject on the first line and the predicate on the second line. • 1. The puppy played with the older dog all day. • _______________ _________________ • 2. Henry bought a new MP3 player with his birthday money. • _______________ _________________ • 3. Kaylee locked her keys in her car. • _______________ _________________ • 4. Kyle took the bus to the mall after school. • _______________ ________________ • Why does it matter knowing this? - this is your take away out the door…

  11. Oral tradition / storytelling The journey Honor Truth Heroic codes Value systems Use of language Big Ideas:

  12. Enduring Understandings/Themes Unit 1World Mythology • Enduring Understandings/ Themes: • In the transformation from oral language to the written word, universal truths of human nature were formalized. • The evolution of language impacts life. • Sometimes the journey itself is more important than the destination.

  13. Essential Questions: • What evidence do I have that I am committed to learning? • Where will I find wisdom? • When is loyalty to myself more important than loyalty to a friend? • How do I demonstrate that I am open-minded enough to learn from my experiences? • How do the heroes of literature reflect the values of the time? • What journey will I take to become my own hero?

  14. Literary Elements • Characterization • Setting • Conflict • Theme • Mood • Tone

  16. The Journey = transformation • Why? (purpose) • Where? (place) we exist in different times and yet the same place, let me explain… • Who? (meet, accompany, inspire (meet but not in physical manner – no longer alive, or exist as fiction)) • When? (timing is everything) • How? (manner, by land on foot, by water in a boat, etc) • What (choices and consequences) – even not making a choice IS a choice and a decision – sin of omission • And of course point of view (narrator)

  17. Funsies…Jokes • Why do bees hum? • Because they don’t know the words. • Why do birds fly south for the winter? • Because it’s too far to walk. • What goes up slowly and comes down quickly? • An elephant in an elevator.

  19. Sentences pt 3: Complete and Simple Subjects • A complete subject is a group of words that names what a sentence is about. • Example: The tall boy out in left field made a great diving catch. • A simple subject is the main word (noun or pronoun) in the complete subject. • Example: The tall boy out in left field made a great diving catch. • Read the following sentences. Underline the complete subjects, and circle the simple subjects. • 1. A slice of apple pie is my ideal dessert. • 2. The little black dog chased our car down the street. • 3. The lady across the street baked us cookies when we moved in. • 4. My sister Tiana knows how to make jewelry. • 5. Anthony was late to class today. 46 • Complete and Simple Predicates • A complete predicate is a group of words that tells something about the subject. • Example: Juan runs on the treadmill at the gym. • A simple predicate is the main word or phrase in the complete predicate. • Example: Juan runs on the treadmill at the gym. • Read the following sentences. Underline the complete predicates, and circle the • simple predicates. • 1. The little black dog chased our car down the street. • 2. The lady across the street baked us cookies when we moved in. • 3. My sister Tiana knows how to make jewelry. • 4. That teacher always gives tests on Mondays. • Now write two sentences of your own that contain complete and • simple predicates. Underline and circle as before.

  20. Departure • The Call to AdventureThe call to adventure is the point in a person's life when they are first given notice that everything is going to change, whether they know it or not. • Refusal of the CallOften when the call is given, the future hero refuses to heed it. This may be from a sense of duty or obligation, fear, insecurity, a sense of inadequacy, or any of a range of reasons that work to hold the person in his or her current circumstances. • Supernatural AidOnce the hero has committed to the quest, consciously or unconsciously, his or her guide and magical helper appears, or becomes known. • The Crossing of the First ThresholdThis is the point where the person actually crosses into the field of adventure, leaving the known limits of his or her world and venturing into an unknown and dangerous realm where the rules and limits are not known. • The Belly of the WhaleThe belly of the whale represents the final separation from the hero's known world and self. It is sometimes described as the person's lowest point, but it is actually the point when the person is between or transitioning between worlds and selves. The separation has been made, or is being made, or being fully recognized between the old world and old self and the potential for a new world/self. The experiences that will shape the new world and self will begin shortly, or may be beginning with this experience which is often symbolized by something dark, unknown and frightening. By entering this stage, the person shows their willingness to undergo a metamorphosis, to die to him or herself.

  21. Initiation • The Road of Trials The road of trials is a series of tests, tasks, or ordeals that the person must undergo to begin the transformation. Often the person fails one or more of these tests, which often occur in threes. The Meeting with the GoddessThe meeting with the goddess represents the point in the adventure when the person experiences a love that has the power and significance of the all-powerful, all encompassing, unconditional love that a fortunate infant may experience with his or her mother. It is also known as the "hieros gamos", or sacred marriage, the union of opposites, and may take place entirely within the person. In other words, the person begins to see him or herself in a non-dualistic way. This is a very important step in the process and is often represented by the person finding the other person that he or she loves most completely. Although Campbell symbolizes this step as a meeting with a goddess, unconditional love and /or self unification does not have to be represented by a woman. Woman as the TemptressAt one level, this step is about those temptations that may lead the hero to abandon or stray from his or her quest, which as with the Meeting with the Goddess does not necessarily have to be represented by a woman. For Campbell, however, this step is about the revulsion that the usually male hero may feel about his own fleshy/earthy nature, and the subsequent attachment or projection of that revulsion to women. Woman is a metaphor for the physical or material temptations of life, since the hero-knight was often tempted by lust from his spiritual journey. Atonement with the FatherIn this step the person must confront and be initiated by whatever holds the ultimate power in his or her life. In many myths and stories this is the father, or a father figure who has life and death power. This is the center point of the journey. All the previous steps have been moving in to this place, all that follow will move out from it. Although this step is most frequently symbolized by an encounter with a male entity, it does not have to be a male; just someone or thing with incredible power. For the transformation to take place, the person as he or she has been must be "killed" so that the new self can come into being. Sometime this killing is literal, and the earthly journey for that character is either over or moves into a different realm. ApotheosisTo apotheosize is to deify. When someone dies a physical death, or dies to the self to live in spirit, he or she moves beyond the pairs of opposites to a state of divine knowledge, love, compassion and bliss. This is a god-like state; the person is in heaven and beyond all strife. A more mundane way of looking at this step is that it is a period of rest, peace and fulfillment before the hero begins the return. • The Ultimate Boon The ultimate boon is the achievement of the goal of the quest. It is what the person went on the journey to get. All the previous steps serve to prepare and purify the person for this step, since in many myths the boon is something transcendent like the elixir of life itself, or a plant that supplies immortality, or the holy grail.

  22. Return • Refusal of the ReturnSo why, when all has been achieved, the ambrosia has been drunk, and we have conversed with the gods, why come back to normal life with all its cares and woes? • The Magic FlightSometimes the hero must escape with the boon, if it is something that the gods have been jealously guarding. It can be just as adventurous and dangerous returning from the journey as it was to go on it. • Rescue from WithoutJust as the hero may need guides and assistants to set out on the quest, often times he or she must have powerful guides and rescuers to bring them back to everyday life, especially if the person has been wounded or weakened by the experience. Or perhaps the person doesn't realize that it is time to return, that they can return, or that others need their boon. • The Crossing of the Return ThresholdThe trick in returning is to retain the wisdom gained on the quest, to integrate that wisdom into a human life, and then maybe figure out how to share the wisdom with the rest of the world. This is usually extremely difficult. • Master of the Two WorldsIn myth, this step is usually represented by a transcendental hero like Jesus or Buddha. For a human hero, it may mean achieving a balance between the material and spiritual. The person has become comfortable and competent in both the inner and outer worlds. • Freedom to LiveMastery leads to freedom from the fear of death, which in turn is the freedom to live. This is sometimes referred to as living in the moment, neither anticipating the future nor regretting the past.
