The Wire — Character Prezi

Character Prezi Guidelines

Shared by Elizabeth Baldridge

In this revision remix, students transform their evidence-driven character analysis into a presentation. This assignment pushes student understandings of their chosen character and encourages revision of the character analysis paper. Because students have at this point all run at least one episode discussion session and worked with everyone in class in small-group work, the presentation portion of the assignment isn’t daunting.

The Wire — One Little Word Argument

095 One Word Argument Guidelines

Synthesis Revision Workshop

Shared by Elizabeth Baldridge

In this paper, students expand their analysis to concepts. This paper also introduces synthesis and documentation. Using scenes from season 4 of The Wire, students examine different presentations/understandings of one little word (like home, school, justice) and argue for a complex definition of the term.
