  9. 9. Jean Brandt “Calling Home” 1. How does Brandt set the stage for her story? How does she try to get you to identify with her? 2. What is your first impression of Brandt? What is the author’s attitude toward her younger self? 3. Point out active verbs that enliven the text. What is the effect of all these action Verbs? (particularly par 3-5). 4. Look for places in the essay where Brandt discloses her feelings at the time the event occurred. What do you learn about Brandt from her remembered thoughts in pars. 5–8? 5. How does your understanding of Brandt deepen or change through what she writes in pars. 16–18? 6. Note the dialogue. What techniques can you identify? How does the dialogue in pars. 21–24 add to the drama? 7. What is the effect of interweaving storytelling and describing with remembering thoughts and feelings in par. 35? 8. How, and how well, does this ending work? Consider it in conjunction with the introduction. In your groups, discuss the following questions: 5 minutes
  10. 10. The Writing Assignment  Using The Hunger Games as your starting point, write an essay about an event in your life that will engage readers and that will, at the same time, help them understand the significance of the event. Tell your story dramatically and vividly in three to five pages.  Format: MLA style (For help, see “MLA Formatting” on the website”). Please give your paper an original title; don't underline or put quotation marks around your own title.
  11. 11. The Goal: Writing a Good Introduction The Strategy:  Choose a provocative or interesting quotation (four typed lines or more) from The Hunger Games and integrate it into your introduction. You can start with the quotation, or you can work it in after a few sentences.  Summarize what is happening in the novel at the point of your quotation, and then explain the context (particular setting) for the quotation. This is important because it sets up the connection to your own experience.  Then, write a transition paragraph, making a connection between the quotation and the event in your life. Your thesis sentence will likely be the sentence in which you clearly make that connection (we will talk more about theses in our next meeting).
  12. 12. Before the opening ceremonies, Katniss meets with her stylist, Cinna, to prepare. Cinna presses a button and a fancy meal of “Chicken and chunks of oranges cooked in a creamy sauce laid on a bed of pearly white grain, tiny green peas and onions, rolls shaped like flowers, and for dessert, a pudding the color of honey” appears (65). Katniss thinks about how difficult it would be to get a meal like this in District 12: What must it be like, I wonder, to live in a world where food appears at the press of a button? How would I spend the hours I now commit to combing the woods for sustenance if it were so easy to come by? What do they do all day, these people in the Capitol, besides decorating their bodies and waiting around for a new shipment of tributes to roll in and die for their entertainment? I look up and find Cinna’s eyes trained on mine. ‘How despicable we must seem to you,’ he says. (65) Katniss doesn’t respond to Cinna’s statement, but she agrees in her head. “He’s right, though. The whole rotten lot of them is despicable” (65). Although our world does not really consist of a Capitol and many districts, there are still some people who live more comfortably than others. For people like me who live in privilege, life is easy. Food is readily available if I want to eat. Outside of school, I don’t really have many responsibilities. I don’t have to worry about how I will survive day to day. My family has told me on many occasions to think about how lucky I am to live the way I do. In other countries, life is hard. In Africa, children starve to death as a result of famine and poverty. People my age in some countries are working more than my parents do. Katniss’s disgust for the extravagant Capitol is similar to the disgust I felt for myself when I listened to an account of one man’s visit to factories in China. How Despicable We Must Seem
  13. 13. 1. Choose a provocative or interesting quotation (four typed lines or more) from The Hunger Games that you can connect to an experience in your own life. 2. Summarize what is happening in the novel at the point of your quotation. 3. Then, write a transition paragraph, making a connection between the quotation and the event in your life. 4. Now make a quick narrative ladder:  Where and when did your event take place?  Setting  Rising action  Climax  Resolution
  14. 14. The Goal: Create A Vivid Presentation of Places  Recreate the time and place of the event  Ground readers in specifics: • When? Christmas morning; one day in late fall, Saturday night • Where? At a 7-11 in San Jose, at my Aunt Helen’s Easter party, In the back alley of a club in Sunnyvale  Name specific objects • White, spherical snowball • City clothes • Translucent skin • Dirty sidewalk
  15. 15. The Strategy: Listing Key Places  Make a list of all the places where the event occurred, skipping some space after each entry on your list. In the space after each entry on your list, make some notes describing each place. What do you see (except people for now)? What objects stand out? Are thy large or small, green or brown, square or oblong? What sounds do you hear? Do you detect any smells? Does any taste come to mind? Any textures?
  16. 16. Writing Tips  Use present tense when describing the events in a novel or film or story: “Katniss volunteers” or “Haymitch is drinking heavily.”  Your thesis for this paper will be the transition sentence from the event in The Hunger Games to your own narrative event: “Katniss’s disgust for the extravagant Capitol is similar to the disgust I felt for myself when I listened to an account of one man’s visit to factories in China.”  Use chronological order to tell your story.  Use past tense to describe the event(s) in your life: “I was camping with my family up in Yosemite.”
  17. 17. HOMEWORK  Read: HG through chapter 9.  Post #5: finish and post your in-class writing 1. Beginning with a quotation/transitioning to your remembered event. 2. Vivid presentation of a place: Using sensory details: 643-648
