Lesson 11

  1. 1. Lesson 11<br />I will compare and contrastcharacters and ideas in a passage by completing a Venn diagram.<br />
  2. 2. Christopher Columbus<br />
  3. 3. Caught by the Sea<br />Boats are designed to sail in open water and they do not come alive until then. I had never known this until that first night as I slid past the jetties in the moonlight and felt her take the sea.<br />
  4. 4. Caught by the Sea<br />It is an astonishing feeling, one that quickens me, makes my breath come slowly.<br /> The motor suddenly became an intrusion, an ugly sound, and as soon as I was past the jetties and was in the open ocean I killed it.<br />
  5. 5. Caught by the Sea<br /> For a few seconds, half a minute, we moved on in silence by inertia, coasting from the energy the motor had given us, and then it died and I felt the breeze again on my face as I looked to the rear.<br />
  6. 6. Caught by the Sea<br />It was pushing at the back edge of the sail and I pulled the tiller over to steer off the wind a bit and felt the sail fill. The boat moved differently now, started the dance with the wind and water and moonlight as she heeled slightly and took on life, personality.<br />
  7. 7. Caught by the Sea<br />We glided along in near silence, the only sound the soft gurgle of water along the hull.<br />
  8. 8. Vocabulary<br />inflammable<br />dignified<br />rowdy<br />seldom<br /> conducted<br /> shatter<br /> broached<br />
  9. 9. inflammable<br />(adj.) can catch fire easily and burns rapidly<br />
  10. 10. dignified<br />(adj.) behaving in a calm, serious, and respectful manner<br />
  11. 11. rowdy<br />(adj.) noisy, rough, and out of control<br />

  14. 14. shatter<br /> (v.) to break suddenly and violently into many small pieces<br />
  15. 15. broached<br /> (adj.) when a ship turns on its side and is in danger of sinking<br />
  16. 16. Lesson 11<br />I will compare and contrastcharacters and ideas in a passage by completing a Venn diagram.<br />
  17. 17. Lesson 11<br />Authors of fiction texts may show the relationships between characters, settings, or plot events by pointing out how they are alike and how they are different.<br />
  18. 18. Compare and Contrast<br />To compare is to tell how things are alike<br />To contrast is to tell how they are different.<br />
  19. 19. Compare and Contrast<br />Words such as<br />and, both, too, like, similarly<br />signal a comparison of things.<br />
  20. 20. Compare and Contrast<br />Words such as<br />but, unlike, while, nevertheless<br />signal a contrast of things.<br />
  21. 21. Compare and Contrast<br />To help us compare and contrast, we use a Venn Diagram:<br />
  22. 22. Compare and Contrast<br />Let’s try one together first:<br />Read the paragraph and fill in the Venn Diagram for the characters Maya and Bo.<br />
  23. 23. Each weekend, Maya and Bo go sailing with their dad. They look forward to the outing all week.<br />
  24. 24. Maya loves to sit on the deck of the boat and feel the wind and salt spray on her face.<br />Unlike Maya, Bo enjoys staying in the cabin and playing his guitar.<br />
  25. 25. Maya and Bo usually take their pet dogs on the boat.<br />The two dogs behave like their owners – Lulu enjoys the wind, while Frankie rests in the cabin.<br />
  26. 26. Let’s fill out a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast Maya and Bo.<br />Both<br />Maya<br />Bo<br />
  27. 27. What do we know Maya likes that Bo doesn’t?<br />Both<br />Maya<br />Bo<br />
  28. 28. What do we know Maya likes that Bo doesn’t?<br />Both<br />Maya<br />Bo<br />loves to <br />sit on the <br />deck<br />
  29. 29. What do we know Bo likes that Maya doesn’t?<br />Both<br />Maya<br />Bo<br />loves to <br />sit on the <br />deck<br />
  30. 30. What do we know Bo likes that Maya doesn’t?<br />Both<br />Maya<br />Bo<br />enjoys<br />staying in<br />the<br />cabin<br />loves to <br />sit on the <br />deck<br />
  31. 31. Now we think about what both people like.<br />Both<br />Maya<br />Bo<br />enjoys<br />staying in<br />the<br />cabin<br />loves to <br />sit on the <br />deck<br />
  32. 32. Now we think about what both people like.<br />Both<br />Maya<br />Bo<br />enjoys<br />staying in<br />the<br />cabin<br />loves to <br />sit on the <br />deck<br />like<br />to<br />sail<br />
  33. 33. Sailing Home<br />In your StoryTown Book, we will read the story “Sailing Home” and compare and contrast the life of the children on the boat and our own lives.<br />
  34. 34. Sailing Home<br />Take a couple minutes to preview the text.<br />Think about the genre of the story.<br />Come up with a prediction and a question about the story.<br />
  35. 35. Sailing Home<br />While we read, we will fill out the organizer in your Practice Book, pg. 62.<br />
