Note to absent students: th You will need to get the presentation notes from a classmate so you have all of the background to aid your reading.

Consider the following passage. How does this passage reflect the essential question and motif regarding gender roles? What is the significance of this passage with regards to the final outcome of the play? "Come, you spirits That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, And fill me, from the crown to the toe, topfull Of direst cruelty! Make thick my blood, Stop up th' access and passage to remorse, That no compunctious visitings of nature Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between Th' effect and it!" Tips to help you be successful: Know what makes a passage a "significant" passage. From a handout Ms. Roitz made: What is a significant passage? A passage is a section of text that is at least a few sentences long. One or more of the following attributes might make it significant: Significant passages stand up to analysis--we can write about them and discuss them in a productive way--and inform us about the novel's theme(s.) A strong shift in style, tone or point of view from the rest of the text Strong sensory imagery throughout the passage A significant, possibly extended, metaphor or simile Strong characterization throughout the passage Description of setting related to theme Strong use of one or more motifs throughout the passage Strong and interesting use of tone throughout the passage Symbolism Unexpected or contrasting diction More Tips to Help You Be Successful: Make sure you answer the whole question! Some of the questions have multiple parts don't leave parts out!!! Stay up to date on your reading an annotations! Make your annotations complete (3 parts)! The more you do with the annotations, the more you have to work with when you answer the question. How are the Card Questions Graded: Major Assignment Quiz Score 75 points possible 6875 (A): You answered the question correctly in its entirety, going beyond expectations. You used valuable textual evidence, connected to themes and essential questions and demonstrated strong analysis. 6067 (B): You answered efficiently, though your response did not show a great deal of indepth analysis. You did refer to the text, but either missed the focus of the question or the indepth analysis and connection to themes/essential questions. Still, it is clear you have read carefully. 5359 (C): There is evidence of reading, though careful reading is not definite. Your response shows a basic understanding of characters and plot but does not go into a detailed analysis. You briefly reference the themes or essential questions, but understanding of connection is unclear. You can make up partial credit by following through on a classmate's answer if you feel as though you can make a meaningful contribution to the analysis and discussion!! Monday, January 25
