    Novel: The Hobbti by JRR Tolkien

    Literature 1
    This week’s focus: THE HOBBIT

    In preparation for Schole support class:

    Enjoy reading the book. Please get to at least chapter 12 for class. This might seem like a lot but we are working to finish the book and work before the break in February.

    PLEASE BRING A QUOTE TO CLASS THAT YOU ENJOY FROM THE HOBBIT and put it in your commonplace book. Be ready to share.
    This is a participation activity. IF you don’t know what to look for, use the literary devices from Grammar of Poetry to guide: look for pun, personification, simile, metaphor, synecdoche.

    Keep highlighting and marking your work for evidence of Bilbo’s character.
    EVIDENCE—is what someone says or does. It can be what Bilbo says or does or what another character says or does to/in response to Bilbo.

    I am going to post some google docs

    1. The HOBBIT- a character study that you are working on. I will update mine. You could see what I am doing and how some chapters may have few or many ideas.
    2. READING GEMS—I don’t know what else to call this but I will “commonplace” on google documents so you can see what I am enjoying along the way. This is merely for your perusal, there is NO REQUIRED work from this. I might add some musings too.
    3. OUTLINE for final paragraphs. I will create some sample formats for how to organize your thoughts for the final paragraph assignment.

    To be completed this week:

    A. READ! 😊 Maybe you can have “second breakfast” as you read…. Have a highlighter on hand, or sticky notes to mark quotes that stick out to you.
    B. Work on Grammar of Poetry module V : synecdoche. Simile, metaphor, pun, personification, synecdoche

    ENRICHMENT – Extra resources for children and families who desire more

    A bio poem on a character from the book==Biblo has a lot of material

    THIS MONTH’S ASSIGNMENT FOR SUBMISSION:
    WORK on the Character chart. Your chart is your January submission.

    Think about the questions at the top of the Character chart. What question seems like you could answer it best?
    An outline template will be given in class.
    Your paragraphs are due before the family week break

    Please contact karynbooth.tutor@gmail.com with any questions and submissions.

    2. As you read, continue to use the attachment where we recorded all the characters introduced and some notes about his/her personality.

    3. In your commonplace book, record another sentence or quote from Animal Farm that you find interesting and be prepared to share it with the class on Thursday Feb. 4th.

    4. Read through Chapter 10 – Art of Poetry — Read about Verse poems in the following sections Villanelle, Sestina, and Sonnet this week. Pgs 111-124

    Enrichment for those who are wanting more:

    JANUARY ASSIGNMENT FOR SUBMISSION – Due Feb. 5, 2021

    This week’s focus: Writing & Rhetoric 7 lesson 9: First Vituperation
    Remember that a vituperation is a condemnation of a specific person or thing, and it too, uses evidence to support its negative point of view. See below the bolded part? That is the difference in a vituperation.
    In preparation for Schole support class: Please have Lesson 9 from page 143 to 149
    So let’s walk through what makes a great Vituperation essay:
    1. Start with an introduction that includes hyperbole a thesis and a transition sentence.
    2. Detail your subject’s background. Consider his or her ancestors including parents, country, or education.
    3. Support your thesis by telling your reader about your subject’s POOR qualities. Consider his or her personal FLAWS, HARMFUL ATTITUDES or VICES
    4. Support your thesis by telling about the persons career. Describe this PERSON’S LACK OF WORTHWHILE ACHIEVEMENTS or show how this person used his or her gifts for IMPROPER USES. Use a quote from the text to support your point of view.
    5. Contrast the person with a BETTER person in order to heighten your criticism.
    6. Write a conclusion. Use new wording to restate your thesis. Consider discouraging your audience from imitating your subject.
