We’ve started answering the review questions together as a group and I’m recording them / adding the recordings here. This might allow for some students who don’t write the review answers out when we discuss them to use this post / these recordings for studying purposes.
2.2.0 The Brain: Review Question Responses
2.2.1 Sensation and Perception: Review Question Responses
Your next assignment is to “perform” a poem. I put that in quotations because I want to emphasize this point; you’re not just reading it, but you have to include emotion and power through your voice. This isn’t easily done and it will certainly take you outside your comfort zone.
As an example of the type of emotion and voice range you can/should attempt to develop in your poetry performance, listen to this video below focusing on the narrator’s use of voice. This copy here is for those of you who want to watch it as well.
Listening to poems performed: this website has many samples of people performing poetry to give examples of the rhythm, the emotion, the plays on sounds of words, the soft and loud, etc. You could listen to some as inspiration before your own recorded performance.
PoemHunter.com – many poems here of different topics so search through
If you’re stuck and looking for some options for poems to select from, here are a random selection that suit the assignment: Note: I want you to avoid selecting a poem that has an audio recording with it of someone performing it. You need to decide and plan for yourself your interpretation of how this poem should be performed: the mood, the slow and fast parts, the emphasis on certain words or word sounds, etc.
We spent class for the last two days watching a psychological thriller. It wasn’t the type of gore or horror movie I think some of you are used to, but the “unknown” element throughout the movie was disturbing. In today’s viewing, there was a bit of actual violence that made you sad: “He can’t die!”.
There’re about 10 minutes of the movie left to watch. It’s on YouTube if you’d like to finish it this weekend! Enjoy a great Thanksgiving with your families!
Hey 9s, now’s the time! Let’s dig into these blogs and see what you can make of them! We’ll go through some steps together to format your new blogs.
There are a few steps I’d like you to follow today in getting started, so use this like a checklist if you will:
Add new posts for:
Your Found Poem: take a photo of your poem and add it to your blog post. Then embed your Fotobabble recording of your reading, or an audio file if you can. Make sure to give your post an interesting but appropriate title.
Your new “Words on a Page” presentation: add your presentation to a new post. You can link a powerpoint or your Prezi.
Add a Page and from the bottom up add:
Your initial AR Fotobabble recording
Your self assessment of your presentation. Take a photo of your assessment and comment about what is most difficult in doing aself assessment.
Your image results of your Multiple Intelligence Survey. Comment on which areas it shows are your strongest.
I compiled all the review questions provided by each section in your handouts as well as copied the terms you have to remember. These are not new questions – you’ve had and been using them throughout the course – but they’re together here in one file for your review purposes.
There are types of learning strengths, did you know? You’re going to take the online test to determine which areas you’re strongest in. We’ll see, then, how you compare with other students in Grades 9 – 12!
Take the test here. You’ll get an image of your results. Keep a copy and email the results to me directly.
