-Mohandas Gandhi

• Orally share your assigned situation below.
Write down a summary of your partner’s story
on your paper
A. Describe a time when you discovered an
important truth about a situation, another
person, or yourself. How did the discovery
affect you, and what were its consequences?
B. Describe a time when you were fooled or
misled by appearances. What led your
perception or judgment astray—in other words,
why were you fooled? What did you learn as a
result of your experience?
Symbolism & Figurative
Language
• Why do we speak in symbols or figurative
language?
• Open TB to p819
• Complete the sentence (from the text):
 The word “symbol” comes from
_______________________
 A literary symbol takes its meaning from
_______________
Symbolism & Figurative
Language
• TB p820
 The difference between literal and figurative
language is similar to _____________________.
 Like symbols, figures of speech ____________.
 A simile makes ______________________.
 A metaphor is ________________________. A
metaphor does not _______________________.
 A personification _____________________.
Figurative Language
• On your thematic focus paper, write two
examples of the following, and analyze what the
figure of speech communicates and how:
 simile
 metaphor
 personification
• Example: Whenever it was time to do the
dishes, Lacey was as elusive as a shadow.
 This simile shows that Lacey was hard to catch
during dishes time by comparing her to a
shadow, which is impossible to catch. The
comparison suggests she hates doing dishes.

Asking Questions
• On a piece of binder paper, write down
1. A question that can be answered by looking at
someone/thing in the room
2. A question that is about someone/thing in the
room but requires some thought
3. A question that is about nothing in the room but
relates to English and requires thought
Asking Questions
• Questions can be “skinny” or “fat”
• Skinny questions are factual questions
 What color shirt is Joey wearing?
• Blue: that is a fact.
• It does not make you think further
• Fat questions are ones where there can be
many different answers
 Why is Joey wearing the blue shirt?
• There could be many different answers to that
question.
Asking Questions
• The key to fat questions is that they do not have
correct answers. The job of a fat question is to
generate discussion by stimulating a variety of
opinions. You will know your question is skinny
if
 It can be answered with a yes or a no.
 There is a sentence, paragraph, or even a page
in the book where the answer can be found.
 The group members all agree on the answer.
