2 Big Ideas/Enduring Understandings Unit 1: Prerequisite Summer Reading: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian Writers make deliberate choices in the words, literary devices, and conventions they employ in writing to enhance meaning for the reader. Literature can help people understand themselves and the world around them. Societal expectations can impact one s identity. A person s responsibility to his/her family or community can affect his or her individual goals. Unit 2: Defining Poetry Writers make deliberate choices in the words, literary devices, and conventions they employ in writing to enhance meaning for the reader. Imagery as a poetic and literary device is important to the understanding and appreciation of poetry. Poetic devices can be manipulated to engage an audience of readers. One can utilize life experiences as a foundation for creative and expressive writing. Unit 3: Literature Circle: Literary Elements and Language Studying literature helps students to understand their own lives. Knowledge about an author s personal experiences impacts the reading and interpretation of his or her work. The development of literary elements helps to convey meaning in the text. Active reading strategies enhance understanding. Self-selection and reflection impact growth as an independent reader Responding to what one reads impacts his or her understanding of literature. Unit 4: The Myth of the Hero: The Odyssey The course of an individual s life can be shaped by outside forces. Odysseus represents every human being. Myths often use supernatural forces to represent forces of human will. Myths help the reader to identify positive or negative qualities in a person, and/or shared cultural values. The Odyssey is the archetype for the hero s journey. Unit 5: Romeo and Juliet: Responsibility and Desire There is often conflict between one s desire and one s responsibility. An individual s life is affected by outside events, family situations, or cultural, political, and social trends. Despite external differences, teenagers face universal concerns throughout time. Writers make deliberate choices in the words, literary devices, and conventions they employ in writing to enhance meaning for the reader. Character development creates a dramatic experience. Unit 6: Research and Writing: Literary Character Analysis Research and investigation informs students understanding of literature. Writing is a process.

3 Writers use elaboration and evidence to support their main ideas. Writers organize information with unity and coherence. Writers know that various mistakes can distract their audiences. Unit 7: I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings: An Invitation to Study the Personal Hero s Journey of Maya Angelou Writers use vivid figurative language to communicate their emotions and experiences to the reader. Research can inform our understanding of literature. Students can use inspiration from Angelou s experiences to chart their own hero s journey.
