    Writing and Rhetoric 3/4

    This week’s focus: Lesson 6 The Protagonist

    In preparation for Schole support class:
    Parents read pages 70-72. You can summarize this for your student if you wish. Highlight the PROTAGONIST and CHARACTER TRAITS. Use the example on page 71 from Anne of Green Gables or a book you are reading together.

    This Lesson has a lot of pages in it, but it’s not too bad. Have your student work on the short answer p.81-first half of 87 through the week, and/or over two weeks instead of one might make the workload lighter.

    To be completed this week:

    With your student read page 73-77. Before reading, remind them they will narrate so they should pay close attention to get their story narrated after as best as possible.

    Complete the outline exercise on page 78-79. Remember to star the main ideas in the text, then look for the supporting details, THEN make the outline. THis is good practise, at the very least have your student FIND the main ideas and supporting details.

    IN WEDNESDAY ZOOM CLASS we will be reviewing the chapter topic and working on
    p.87 CHANGE THE DIALOGUE, discussing point of view, and what happens when a protagonist changes

    We will discuss pages 88-93 in class. Those assignments would be good to do at home, but only if you feel you have time. I will try to incorporate those ideas in the dialogue assignment.

    Music: Grades 3-4

    With your family, watch this video O Come O Come Emmanuel by the Piano Guys.

    • What emotions are the musicians expressing in their playing?
    • Use this time to quietly reflect on the meaning of Advent

    Watch Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Knights from the ballet Romeo and Juliet.

    • What is the expression on the dancers’ faces?
    • What emotions are they trying to portray?
    • What words can you use to describe the music?
    • Does this seem like a “dance” to you? Why or why not?

    Compare with Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Little Swans from the ballet Swan Lake.

    • How would you describe this dance?
    • What is the tempo (speed) of this dance?
    • Which instruments do you hear?

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at aperlau@mtroyal.ca

    POEM to MEMORIZE (work toward word perfect memorization):

    After the Party
    By William Wise

    Jonathan Blake
    Ate too much cake,
    He isn’t himself today:
    He’s tucked up in bed
    With a feverish head,
    And he doesn’t much care to play.

    Jonathan Blake
    Ate too much cake,
    And three kinds of ice cream too-
    From his latest reports
    He’s quite out of sorts,
    And I’m sure the reports are true.

    I’m sorry to state
    That he also ate
    Six pickles, a pie, and a pear;
    In fact I confess
    It’s a reasonable guess
    He ate practically everything there.

    Yes, Jonathan Blake
    Ate too much cake,
    So he’s not at his best today;
    But there’s no need for sorrow-
    If you come back tomorrow,
    I’m sure he’ll be out to play.

    THIS MONTH’S WRITING & RHETORIC ASSIGNMENT FOR SUBMISSION:
    Summary of The Mouse in Council to be handed in before Christmas break.
