Charting the text

Goal: Looking closely at what the author is saying and doing in "Extreme Sports Not About Risk Taking: Study."

  1. Read
  2. Charting the text
Charting the Text: 

  • Charting means doing a close analysis of the article to see what the author is saying and doing. 
  • We use our graphic organizers to separate the literal meaning of each chunk of text from the rhetorical strategies the author is using.  
  • If you are absent you'll need to ask Mrs. R for the graphic organizer because we are doing this one on paper. 
  • Open your Google Doc with the articles for this unit. 
  • If you still need to make up the essay test from 3/24 you can come after school Wednesday, Thursday or Friday this week. 
  • You can still call in a dramatic reading from your book. See the tab above on this blog. 
  • Look for books at home that you need to return. 
  • You have book review #8 due on 4/19. (Just one.)
