WORKING IN GROUPS
Group Guided Lesson: Explication
In each group you should have a facilitator; this role should rotate so everyone assumes the responsibility over the course of the year. The facilitator is responsible for keeping everything on track, including timing the individual work times. They should be looking to this guide to share the task and to move things along. You should also have a group note-taker (again, the role should rotate over the course of the year). They are responsible for recording the group’s final responses. Please include all group member names on the document.
Honors Jr. English
Honors Junior English focuses on the study of American Literature. We will be looking to see how literature reflects our culture and traditions, belief systems and various perspectives by focusing on the concept of the American Dream and how the individual defines identity in our society. As we do so, we will also be focused on academic writing, moving from writing literary analysis to using critical theory to writing a critical literary analysis based upon academic reading and research.
