Multimodal follw up -- good and bad

  1. 1. reading skills WHERE WE’RE AT THE GOOD & THE BAD
  2. 2. predictions THE GOOD THE BAD •  In-depth, thoughtful, meaningful predictions supported by text clues which explain and defend •  Not giving basis for prediction o  Must explain the text clue you’re using. o  Need to be able to defend your prediction! •  Surface-level/basic statements which lacked a prediction •  “I predict Calvin’s project will not be very good because things that are done rushed and last- minute typically aren’t your best work.” (Calvin and Hobbes comic) •  Macklemore wanted to confront homosexual stereotypes based on the first few lyrics and the specific line “Bunch of sterotypes all in my head/ A preconceived idea of what it all meant” (“Same Love”) •  “An ad for a tablet.” (Windows magazine ad) •  “He likes trees.” (Tree of Life painting)
  3. 3. questions THE GOOD THE BAD •  Meaningful questions that would require both text clues and schema to develop an inference •  Questions that would promote great discussion and deeper understanding of the text •  Asking what is already answered within the text •  Asking irrelevant or unimportant questions •  Why did the director choose happy music while the scenes seem dramatic and negative? (Shawshank Redemption trailer) •  What do the fighting stuffed animals represent? (“Radioactive” music video) •  “Will this comic be funny?” (Calvin and Hobbes comic) •  “How does the movie end?” (Shawshank Redemption trailer)
  4. 4. connections THE GOOD THE BAD •  Specific, thoughtful connections which clearly state how they helped better understanding of the text •  Simply writing “text-to-______”. Explain! •  Unimportant connections; ones that do not add to understanding of the text •  Connections that lack explanation; how does the connection help your understanding? •  “I’ve seen men on Lockup Raw who describe how miserable jail is. It’s understandable why the man is trying to escape the harsh life behind bars.” (Shawshank Redemption trailer) •  “I have a gay friend. It is sad to see the harsh words some people say to him. He is definitely stereotyped by others.” (“Same Love” lyrics) •  “I’ve watched a show about jail before.” (Shawshank Redemption trailer) •  “Everyone at East is prejudice.” (“Same Love” lyrics)
  5. 5. tone THE GOOD THE BAD •  Tone should be an adjective which describes the author’s attitude toward the subject of his/her piece. •  Tone is not about us as readers; it is all about the author and his/her attitude! •  “I think Macklemore’s attitude is passionate. He clearly feels strongly about this topic and is passionate about getting his message out there.” (Macklemore’s “Same Love”) •  “He is very sarcastic. Like his line about torturing a confession out of it. He’s making fun of people who take poetry too seriously in a sarcastic way.” (Billy Collins’s poem) •  “To make the audience sad.” (Tree of Life painting) • “He wants us to feel guilty and stop hating one another.” (Macklemore’s “Same Love”)
  6. 6. theme THE GOOD THE BAD •  Complete statements which state the topic of the message as well as the opinion presented in the text •  One-word topics •  Cliché statements •  “Everyone deserves a life free of stereotypes and with equal rights.” (Macklemore’s “Same Love”) •  “Take time to explore and simply enjoy poetry.” (Billy Collins’s poem) •  “Equality.” (Macklemore’s “Same Love”) •  “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.” (Billy Collins’s poem)
