We started class by having a whole class, student led discussion about bravery and Freak the Mighty.
After the discussion we looked at the final assignment for Freak the Mighty. the assignment is to create an online flyer about the theme of Freak the Mighty and how the elements of fiction interact with each other to create that theme. Below you will find the instructions and an example.
Here are the instructions for the final:
Here is an example of what your flyer might look like if it were for "The Emperor's New Clothes" instead of Freak the Mighty.
Use the worksheet below to create a rough draft of your flyer.
I can engage effectively in small group discussion.
Today I passed back graded brochures. If you were absent, get your graded brochure from Mrs. Low.
Afterward we finished Freak the Mighty. When you get back to school you need to finish it.
Finally we participated in a small group discussion in regards to the end of the novel.
I can analyze how the elements of fiction interact to create theme.
Today we started class by talking about how setting affects plot. We watched the following clip from Frozen. As you watch, notice that the story would turn out differently if the setting were different. For example, Hans would never been able to convince Elsa that her sister was dead if it had not been for the storm. The storm prevented Elsa from seeing Anna. Had Elsa seen Anna, she would have behaved differently. It's possible that Anna would not have been saved her true love for her sister.
Did you notice how the setting affected the plot?
Now watch this clip from Beauty and the Beast. See if you can figure out how the exposition and rising action would be different if the setting were different.
Finally, we read chapters 17-20 of Freak the Mighty and filled out the worksheet below.
