Transcript

  • 1. Cultural and Historical Context English I NCVPS
  • 2. What does Cultural Context mean?
    • Culture includes the behaviors, ideas, and beliefs shared by individuals within a particular group of people.
    • This group can be based around age, ethnicity, or social standing.
    • Culture is learned, and it includes language, values, norms, and customs related to that particular group.
  • 3. What does Historical Context mean?
    • This one is a little easier to understand ~
    • Historical context means the setting of the work that you’re reading or studying.
    • In other words, the time period and the place in which a story is set.
  • 4. For Example:
    • . . .a story which takes place in the 1880’s in Victorian New York City is going to be very different from one which takes place in the 1920’s in Boston, Massachusetts.
  • 5. How do I determine cultural and historical context?
    • First, use background information or prior knowledge to help identify the influences of culture or history.
    • Ask yourself this question: what ideas about culture or history do I already know that I can bring to this story?
  • 6.
    • Second, use your own experiences to help you to relate.
    • Ask yourself this question: have I ever had any similar feelings or experiences as the character(s)?
  • 7.
    • Lastly, let the tools given on the pages of the text (footnotes at the bottom; side notes on the sides) give you information you may not already know.
    • Ask yourself: what do these footnotes or side notes tell me that help me better understand the historical and /or cultural context of this story?
  • 8.
    • Knowing the cultural and historical context of a story allows you as a reader to make a stronger connection with the story.
    • Because you make this connection, you’re drawn in to the story, and you want to keep reading to know what happens next.
  • 9. So Remember. . .
    • Use prior knowledge
    • Use your own experiences
    • Use the tools that are given
    • Enjoy the story! 
