First graders explore and ask for clarification and explanation of stories and ideas. They are told that you (teacher) are going to read aloud to them a book in which the author is remembering things she did when she was a child. Students listen as the teacher reads When I was Young in the Mountains aloud, straight through. They are given a copy of the BLM Listening Post.
Students analyze the theme of time in The Sound and the Fury and the use of stream of consciousness as a narrative technique. In this William Faulkner analysis lesson, students analyze the symbols as time triggers in the novel and decipher Quentin's mental state using stream of consciousness textual examples. Students create a reading journal for Faulkner's literary techniques.
Students are introduced to the characteristics of an autobiography. After reading excerpts from "The Diary of Anne Frank", they discuss how two people can see the same event in different ways and write about the event in the journals from two different perspectives. To end the lesson, they create a timeline of their life and write a story of one event as a flashback.
