Reflection: High Expectations Analyzing Imagery of Wrath and Redemption: Collaborative Explication of "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" - Section 2: Creating a Poster Advertising "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" (Continued)

 

By establishing a routine yesterday with students working collaboratively, they were able to work today while I was out of the building, but were unable to complete the project. While the sub notes stated "They worked the whole period," the students appeared to have not done so.

This did provide a teachable moment for me to discuss in-class focus with my students, explaining my expectations that they be able to work without a teacher hovering over them, that they are self motivated and take ownership of the material and class. It also required re-structuring a day of class to provide an opportunity for students to collaborate and complete the poster.

Analyzing Imagery of Wrath and Redemption: Collaborative Explication of "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God"

Unit 2: Literacy: Plain Living Portrayed in Puritan Poetry and Sermons
Lesson 6 of 10

Objective: SWBAT analyze how the mood of "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" develops over the course of the text, how it emerges and is shaped and refined by specific images from the piece by collaboratively composing an poster advertising the sermon.

Big Idea: A bent bow evokes a threat of physical harm; damned floodwaters, an impending disaster; a spider held above a fire, a feeling of powerlessness: images creating the mood of fear in "Sinners in the Hands of Angry God"
