Hello,

*Today we will start off with silent reading

*No Red Ink:  Phrase and Dependent Clauses

*Two more roles I forgot to post….researcher and word wizard.

*Today you are all going to be researchers.  Novels are not written in isolation.  They are often a product of the world within which the author lives…

Depending on the novel being studied, forms of contextualization may include one or more of the following:

  • Cultural — placed within the learned behavior of specific groups of people.
  • Economic — of or relating to systems of production and management of material wealth and/or business activities.
  • Gender — located within the behavioral, cultural, or psychological traits typically associated with being male or female.
  • Historical — the time in which something takes place or was created and how that influences how you interpret it.
  • Interdisciplinary — explanation of theories, concepts, ideas, or methodologies borrowed from other disciplines applied to the research problem rooted in another discipline.
  • Philosophicalclarification of the essential nature of being or of phenomena as it relates to the research problem.
  • Physical/Spatial — reflects the space around something and how that influences how you see it.
  • Political — concerns the environment in which something is produced indicating it’s public purpose or agenda.
  • Social — the environment of people that surrounds something’s creation or intended audience, reflecting how the people around something use and interpret it.
  • Temporal — reflects issues or events of, relating to, or limited by time.

Using the “Researcher” role sheet as a guide line, you are to research the context within which your novel was written.  Be prepared to share your findings with your group.
