Unformatted text preview: Alqadhi,​ ​Sunpula May​ ​2,​ ​2017 Period​ ​6 Room​ ​HE#3 “Against​ ​Nature”​ ​p.​ ​231​ ​ ​ ​ ​45/50 Integrity​ ​Statement:​ ​I​ ​did​ ​not​ ​allow​ ​anyone​ ​to​ ​copy​ ​my​ ​answers.​ ​This​ ​would​ ​have​ ​been​ ​throwing away​ ​my​ ​integrity.​ ​My​ ​integrity​ ​is​ ​more​ ​important. Standards:​ ​ELA​​ ​RI.11–12.1,​ ​RI.11–12.2,​ ​RI.11–12.3,​​ ​RI.11–12.5,​ ​W.11–12.2,​ ​W.11–12.7, L.11–12.4a What​ ​is​ ​RI.​ ​12-3? What​ ​is​ ​W.​ ​12.7? Analyzing​ ​the​ ​Text Cite​ ​Text​ ​Evidence Support​ ​your​ ​responses​ ​with​ ​evidence​ ​from​ ​the​ ​selection. 1.​ ​ ​ ​Analyze​ ​Look​ ​at​ ​the​ ​list​ ​at​ ​the​ ​beginning​ ​of​ ​the​ ​essay​ ​(lines​ ​1–14).​ ​In​ ​what​ ​way​ ​does it​ ​contribute​ ​to​ ​the​ ​structure​ ​of​ ​the​ ​author’s​ ​argument? ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​The​ ​way​ ​the​ ​list​ ​at​ ​the​ ​beginning​ ​of​ ​the​ ​essay​ ​contributes​ ​to​ ​the​ ​structure​ ​of​ ​the​ ​author’s argument​ ​is​ ​by​ ​repeating.​ ​In​ ​lines​ ​1-14,​ ​she​ ​continues​ ​to​ ​use​ ​the​ ​same​ ​words.​ ​The​ ​speaker repeats,​ ​“It​ ​lacks​ ​a​ ​moral​ ​purpose.”,​ ​“It​ ​lacks​ ​a​ ​satiric​ ​dimension​ ​…​ ​.”,​ ​and​ ​“It​ ​lacks​ ​a​ ​symbolic subtext​ ​….”​ ​The​ ​narrator​ ​uses​ ​repetition​ ​so​ ​we​ ​can​ ​keep​ ​it​ ​in​ ​my​ ​head​ ​and​ ​she​ ​uses​ ​it​ ​to​ ​get​ ​her point​ ​through. 2.​ ​ ​ ​Analyze​ ​In​ ​line​ ​15,​ ​the​ ​author​ ​begins​ ​a​ ​narrative​ ​about​ ​an​ ​experience​ ​she​ ​had​ ​in nature.​ ​How​ ​does​ ​the​ ​author​ ​use​ ​this​ ​narrative​ ​to​ ​engage​ ​the​ ​reader? ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​The​ ​author​ ​uses​ ​this​ ​narrator​ ​to​ ​engage​ ​the​ ​reader​ ​because​ ​it's​ ​from​ ​her​ ​personal​ ​experience. She​ ​puts​ ​in​ ​an​ ​anecdote​ ​that​ ​explains​ ​her​ ​point​ ​of​ ​view​ ​from​ ​what​ ​she​ ​went​ ​through.​ ​When​ ​she states,​ ​“...​ ​a​ ​sudden​ ​attack​ ​of​ ​tachycardia​[4]​​ ​that​ ​had​ ​come​ ​upon​ ​me​ ​out​ ​of​ ​nowhere​ ​….”,​ ​she makes​ ​me​ ​feel​ ​sorry​ ​for​ ​her.​ ​She​ ​is​ ​engaging​ ​me​ ​to​ ​feel​ ​for​ ​her. 3.​ ​ ​ ​Identify​ ​Attempting​ ​to​ ​transcend​ ​her​ ​condition,​ ​the​ ​author​ ​tries​ ​to​ ​focus​ ​on​ ​nature as​ ​she​ ​lies​ ​limp​ ​in​ ​the​ ​dirt​ ​(lines​ ​46–78).​ ​What​ ​does​ ​she​ ​realize​ ​about​ ​the​ ​earth​ ​and the​ ​sky​ ​as​ ​she​ ​lies​ ​there? ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​She​ ​realizes​ ​that​ ​the​ ​earth​ ​is​ ​hell​ ​for​ ​her,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​sky​ ​is​ ​the​ ​path​ ​for​ ​heaven.​ ​You​ ​feel​ ​helpless standing​ ​in​ ​the​ ​dirty​ ​when​ ​you​ ​can​ ​be​ ​in​ ​the​ ​sky​ ​where​ ​it’s​ ​calm​ ​and​ ​its​ ​true​ ​self.​ ​She​ ​calls​ ​earth, “...​ ​hard,​ ​emphatic,​ ​not​ ​mere​ ​surface​ ​but​ ​a​ ​genuine​ ​force​ ​….”​ ​As​ ​for​ ​the​ ​sky,​ ​it​ ​helped​ ​her​ ​cool down​ ​and​ ​breathe​ ​slowly.​ ​She​ ​notes,​ ​“But​ ​contemplate​ ​the​ ​sky,​ ​it’s​ ​there​ ​to​ ​be​ ​contemplated.” For​ ​the​ ​sky,​ ​it​ ​was​ ​there​ ​to​ ​help​ ​her​ ​ease​ ​down​ ​while​ ​the​ ​dirt​ ​ground​ ​did​ ​nothing. 4.​ ​ ​ ​Analyze​ ​The​ ​author​ ​quotes​ ​Thoreau​ ​in​ ​a​ ​passage​ ​that​ ​celebrates​ ​the​ ​virtues​ ​of nature​ ​in​ ​the​ ​decomposition​ ​of​ ​a​ ​dead​ ​horse​ ​(lines​ ​180–193).​ ​Then​ ​she​ ​addresses Thoreau​ ​directly:​ ​“Come​ ​off​ ​it,​ ​Henry​ ​David.”​ ​What​ ​central​ ​idea​ ​is​ ​developed​ ​in​ ​lines 194–202?​ ​What​ ​effect​ ​does​ ​Oates’s​ ​tone,​ ​or​ ​attitude​ ​toward​ ​her​ ​subject,​ ​in​ ​this passage​ ​have​ ​on​ ​the​ ​reader? ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​The​ ​central​ ​idea​ ​that's​ ​developed​ ​in​ ​lines​ ​194-202​ ​is​ ​that​ ​she​ ​is​ ​really​ ​close​ ​to​ ​Henry​ ​David. For​ ​a​ ​stranger​ ​to​ ​say​ ​that​ ​to​ ​Henry​ ​David​ ​would​ ​make​ ​him​ ​angry​ ​and​ ​upset,​ ​but​ ​Thoreau​ ​is​ ​close to​ ​Henry​ ​which​ ​makes​ ​Henry​ ​to​ ​try​ ​to​ ​understand.​ ​When​ ​she​ ​mentions​ ​to​ ​Henry​ ​that,​ ​“...​ ​you’ve never​ ​wholly​ ​recovered​ ​from​ ​the​ ​experience​ ​of​ ​watching​ ​him​ ​die.”,​ ​it​ ​means​ ​that​ ​she​ ​has​ ​been​ ​by his​ ​side​ ​for​ ​years​ ​since​ ​its​ ​been​ ​years​ ​his​ ​elder​ ​brother​ ​died.​ ​Oates’s​ ​tone​ ​or​ ​attitude​ ​toward​ ​her subject​ ​is​ ​sassy,​ ​but​ ​it​ ​only​ ​means​ ​that​ ​she​ ​is​ ​very​ ​close​ ​to​ ​him. 5.​ ​ ​ ​Interpret​ ​According​ ​to​ ​the​ ​author,​ ​how​ ​do​ ​writers​ ​and​ ​artists​ ​help​ ​perpetuate “Nature-as-experience”​ ​(lines​ ​131–132)? ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​Writers​ ​and​ ​artists​ ​help​ ​perpetuate​ ​“Nature-as-experience”​ ​by​ ​having​ ​artist​ ​drawing​ ​a​ ​picture of​ ​waves​ ​crashing​ ​against​ ​the​ ​rocks​ ​making​ ​seem​ ​peaceful​ ​and​ ​nice​ ​when​ ​in​ ​reality​ ​it's​ ​hard splashes​ ​with​ ​the​ ​sounds​ ​of​ ​seagulls​ ​yelling​ ​loud.​ ​Another​ ​example​ ​is​ ​when​ ​writers​ ​write​ ​as raindrops​ ​hit​ ​the​ ​windows​ ​which​ ​can​ ​get​ ​annoying​ ​when​ ​you​ ​are​ ​trying​ ​to​ ​concentrate.​ ​They​ ​try to​ ​make​ ​nature​ ​peaceful​ ​and​ ​calm​ ​when​ ​nature​ ​is​ ​not​ ​self-aware. Critical​ ​Vocabulary:​ ​Define​ ​each​ ​word. Resonance:​ ​richness​ ​of​ ​meaning;​ ​the​ ​ability​ ​to​ ​evoke​ ​emotion. Autonomy:​ ​freedom​ ​from​ ​control;​ ​independence Evidently:​ ​plainly,​ ​or​ ​obviously​ ​apparent​ ​from​ ​evidence​ ​or​ ​data. Transcending:​ ​to​ ​go​ ​beyond​ ​the​ ​limits​ ​or​ ​become​ ​independent​ ​of. Tangentially:​ ​indirectly​ ​or​ ​peripherally​ ​connected. Harbingers:​ ​a​ ​person​ ​or​ ​thing​ ​that​ ​signals​ ​a​ ​future​ ​occurrence. Practice​ ​and​ Apply​ ​Answer​ ​the​ ​questions​ ​by​ ​applying​ ​each​ ​Critical​ ​Vocabulary​ ​word to​ ​your​ ​own​ ​life. 1.​ ​ ​When​ ​have​ ​you​ ​wanted​ ​autonomy? I​ ​wanted​ ​autonomy​ ​on​ ​my​ ​phone​ ​because​ ​I​ ​don’t​ ​like​ ​my​ ​elders​ ​looking​ ​through​ ​it. 2.​ ​ ​What​ ​have​ ​you​ ​ever​ ​seen​ ​or​ ​read​ ​that​ ​had​ ​resonance? I​ ​read​ ​a​ ​book​ ​called​ ​Legend​ ​and​ ​it​ ​has​ ​resonance.​ ​It​ ​put​ ​me​ ​emotional​ ​when​ ​Day’s​ ​mom​ ​was killed. 3.​ ​ ​What​ ​do​ ​you​ ​see​ ​as​ ​a​ ​harbinger​ ​of​ ​winter? What​ ​I​ ​see​ ​as​ ​a​ ​harbinger​ ​of​ ​winter​ ​is​ ​leaves​ ​falling​ ​off​ ​from​ ​trees.​ ​It​ ​tells​ ​me​ ​winter​ ​is​ ​on​ ​its way. 4.​ ​ ​When​ ​have​ ​you​ ​found​ ​yourself​ ​transcending​ ​physical​ ​pain​ ​to​ ​perform​ ​a​ ​task? I​ ​found​ ​myself​ ​transcending​ ​physical​ ​pain​ ​to​ ​perform​ ​a​ ​task​ ​when​ ​I​ ​was​ ​working​ ​out. 5.​ ​ ​What​ ​is​ ​evidently​ ​true​ ​about​ ​you,​ ​based​ ​on​ ​your​ ​favorite​ ​activities? Sitting​ ​down​ ​and​ ​relaxing​ ​is​ ​evidently​ ​true​ ​about​ ​myself​ ​since​ ​it's​ ​my​ ​favorite​ ​thing​ ​to​ ​do. 6.​ ​ ​When​ ​have​ ​you​ ​answered​ ​a​ ​direct​ ​question​ ​tangentially? I​ ​have​ ​answered​ ​a​ ​direct​ ​question​ ​tangentially​ ​when​ ​my​ ​sister​ ​asked​ ​me​ ​how​ ​her​ ​makeup​ ​was. ...
