  43. 43. <ul><li>Here’s a list of sentences, all written by professional writers, but with some parts deleted. </li></ul><ul><li>It went away slowly. </li></ul><ul><li>The land that lay stretched out before him became of vast significance. </li></ul><ul><li>However, I looked with a mixture of admiration and awe at Peter. </li></ul><ul><li>Now compare those sentences with the originals. Notice that the additions account for the distinctiveness of the original sentences. The boldfaced phrases are appositives. </li></ul><ul><li>1a. It went away slowly, the feeling of disappointment that came sharply after the thrill that made his shoulders ache . </li></ul><ul><li>Ernest Hemingway, “Big Two-Hearted River” </li></ul>IDENTIFYING THE APPOSITIVE PHRASE 2a. The land that lay stretched out before him became of vast significance, a place peopled by his fancy with a new race of men sprung from himself. Sherwood Anderson, Winesburg, Ohio 3a. However, I looked with a mixture of admiration and awe at Peter, a boy who could and did imitate a police siren every morning on his way to the showers. Robert Russell, To Catch an Angel
  44. 44. <ul><li>Appositives are noun phrases that identify adjacent nouns or pronouns. They can occur as sentence openers, subject-verb splits, or sentence closers. </li></ul>CHARACTERISTICS OF THE APPOSITIVE PHRASE A Sentence Opener is any word, phrase, or clause—or mixture of words, phrases, or clauses—at the beginning of a sentence.

A Sentence Closer is any word, phrase, or clause—or mixture of words, phrases, or clauses—at the ending of a sentence. Subject – verb , CLOSER.
  46. 46. <ul><li>OPENER , subject – verb. </li></ul><ul><li>One of eleven brothers and sisters, Harriet was a moody, willful child. </li></ul><ul><li>Langston Hughes, “Road to Freedom” </li></ul><ul><li>Subject , SPLIT , verb. </li></ul><ul><li>Poppa, a good quiet man , spent the last hours before our parting moving aimlessly about the yard, keeping to himself and avoiding me. </li></ul><ul><li>Gordon Parks, “My Mother’s Dream for Me” </li></ul>ACTIVITY: IDENTIFY THE PATTERN

Taylor, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry </li></ul><ul><li>4. A man, a weary old pensioner with a bald dirty head and a stained brown corduroy waistcoat , appeared at the door of a small gate lodge. </li></ul><ul><li>Brian Moore, The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne </li></ul>ACTIVITY: IDENTIFY THE PATTERN
  48. 48. <ul><li>Directions: Each scrambled sentence has one or more appositives. Identify them. Then unscramble the sentence parts and write out the sentence, punctuating it correctly. </li></ul><ul><li>1a. an old, bowlegged </li></ul><ul><li>fellow in a pale-blue </li></ul><ul><li>sweater </li></ul><ul><li>the judge </li></ul><ul><li>and was reading over some notes he had taken </li></ul><ul><li>had stopped examining the animals </li></ul><ul><li>on the back of a dirty envelope </li></ul><ul><li>Jessamyn West, “The Lesson” </li></ul><ul><li>2a . went over to Tom </li></ul><ul><li>Willy’s saloon </li></ul><ul><li>in the late afternoon </li></ul><ul><li>Will Henderson </li></ul><ul><li>and editor of the </li></ul><ul><li>Eagle </li></ul><ul><li>e . owner </li></ul><ul><li>Sherwood Anderson, Winesburg, Ohio </li></ul>PRACTICE 1 - UNSCRAMBLING
  49. 49. <ul><li>Directions: Unscramble both lists of sentence parts to make two sentences that imitate the first model. Then, imitate the same model by writing your own sentence. Finally write imitations of the other models, making all of your sentence parts like those in the model. </li></ul><ul><li>Scrambled Imitation 1 </li></ul><ul><li>1a. president and valedictorian of the senior class </li></ul><ul><li>b. by the podium </li></ul><ul><li>c. intelligent and composed and smiling </li></ul><ul><li>e. scholarly Henrietta stood </li></ul><ul><li>Model: Beside the fireplace old Doctor Winter sat, bearded and simple and benign, historian and physician to the town. </li></ul><ul><li>John Steinbeck, The Moon Is Down </li></ul><ul><li>Scrambled Imitation 2 </li></ul><ul><li>2a. beaming and affectionate and happy </li></ul><ul><li>b. bride and groom in their finery </li></ul><ul><li>c. they danced </li></ul><ul><li>d. under the canopy </li></ul>PRACTICE 2 – IMITATING

  51. 51. <ul><li>Directions: At the slash mark, add an appositive phrase. In sentences 1-2, the first few words are provided and the number of words omitted from the original is noted in brackets after the slash mark. Approximate that number in your expanded sentence. In sentences 3-6, add whatever seems appropriate. </li></ul><ul><li>Out in the distance the fans of windmills twinkled, turning, and about the base of each, about the drink tank, was a speckle of dots, a herd of cattle / [13]. </li></ul><ul><li>Glendon Swarthout , Bless the Beasts and Children </li></ul><ul><li>Perhaps two or three times a year we would come together at a party, one of those teen-age affairs which last until dawn with singing and dancing and silly games such as “Kiss the Pillow,” or “Post Office,” the game which / [18]. </li></ul><ul><li>Henry Miller , Stand Still Like the Hummingbird </li></ul>PRACTICE 4 – EXPANDING
  52. 52. <ul><li>What applications do you see in your classroom? </li></ul><ul><li>What scaffolding needs to occur before you can try some of Killgallon’s techniques? </li></ul><ul><li>How are you currently teaching more sophisticated composing skills? </li></ul>ACTIVITY: DISCUSSION
  53. 53. <ul><li>Writing takes many forms. Sometimes an author uses jokes and humor to entertain the reader. Other times, the writer employs idioms, puns, and satire to poke fun. </li></ul><ul><li>Jesters are stereotypically thought to have worn brightly colored clothes and eccentric hats in a motley pattern. Their hats were especially distinctive; made of cloth they were floppy with three points, each of which had a jingle bell at the end. The three points of the hat represent the donkey’s ears and tail worm by jesters of old. </li></ul><ul><li>Jesters assumed the role of either a natural fool or a licensed fool to compose nit-witted, moronic performances. Escape now from the hard work of serious composing to laugh, mock and enjoy the many forms of writing. </li></ul><ul><li>For a few moments, become a jester, a wit-cracker or buffoon as you explore your creative side with mock marotte (prop stick or scepter) in hand. </li></ul>WHO SAYS THAT WRITING IN HIGH SCHOOL CAN’T BE FUN?
