  4. 4. Connections <ul><li>Now some people (runners) like to act like things come easy to them, won’t let on that they practice. Not me. I’ll high-prance down 34 th Street like a rodeo pony to keep my knees strong even if it does get my mother uptight so that she walks ahead like she’s not with me, don’t know me, is all by herself on a shopping trip, and I am somebody else’s child. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Connections <ul><li>I was once a strawberry in a Hansel and Gretel pageant when I was in nursery school and didn’t have no better sense than to dance on tiptoe with my arms in a circle over my head doing umbrella steps and being a perfect fool just so my mother and father could come dressed up and clap. You’d think they’d know better than to encourage that kind of nonsense. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Determining What is Important <ul><li>“ Who are the Ninety-Nines?” </li></ul><ul><li>The Ninety-Nines, Inc., is an international organization of licensed women pilots from 35 countries with over 6,500 members throughout the world. The organization came into being November 2, 1929, at Curtiss Field, Valley Stream, Long Island, New York. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Twenty-six licensed pilots replied to an invitation issued in the form of a letter. Later, after rejecting many names the organization chose “The Ninety-Nines,” because 99of the 117 licensed women pilots in the United States at that time signed up as charter members. </li></ul><ul><li>Today, Ninety-Nines are professional pilots for airlines, industry, and government; they are pilots who teach. . . fly for pleasure,. . .But first and foremost, they are women who love to fly. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Questioning <ul><li>Listen, my children, and you shall hear </li></ul><ul><li>Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, </li></ul><ul><li>On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five; </li></ul><ul><li>Hardly a man is now alive </li></ul><ul><li>Who remembers that famous day and year. </li></ul><ul><li>He said to his friend, “If the British march </li></ul><ul><li>By land or sea from the town to-night, </li></ul><ul><li>Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry arch </li></ul><ul><li>Of the North Church tower as a signal light,- </li></ul><ul><li>One if by land, and two if by sea; </li></ul><ul><li>And I on the opposite shore will be, </li></ul><ul><li>Ready to ride and spread the alarm. . . </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>. . .So through the night rode Paul Revere; </li></ul><ul><li>And so through the night went his cry of alarm </li></ul><ul><li>To every Middlesex village and farm,- </li></ul><ul><li>A cry of defiance, and not of fear, </li></ul><ul><li>A voice in the darkness, a knock at the door, </li></ul><ul><li>And a word that shall echo forevermore! </li></ul><ul><li>For, borne on the night-wind of the Past, </li></ul><ul><li>Through all our history, to the last, </li></ul><ul><li>In the hour of darkness and peril and need, </li></ul><ul><li>The people will waken and listen to hear </li></ul><ul><li>The hurrying hoof-beats of that steed, </li></ul><ul><li>And the midnight message of Paul Revere. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Questioning <ul><li>Read the questions asked about the last two frames. </li></ul><ul><li>Read any answers you wrote. </li></ul><ul><li>Use these questions and answers to infer what the poet was saying about history? (What is the poet’s statement or theme?) </li></ul>
  12. 12. FACTS Background Clues INFERENCES
  13. 13. Summarizing <ul><li>Fold a sheet of paper in half. </li></ul><ul><li>Read the paragraph or short poem. </li></ul><ul><li>On the top half of the paper, write </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Questions you think of </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Predictions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Important ideas </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Visual images </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Close the book that contains the passage. </li></ul><ul><li>Using the notes that are written on the top part of the paper, write two or three sentences that tells what the passage was about. </li></ul>
