Class SQ3R and Open-Minded Portrait Homework

SQ3R

SURVEY
– hot dog competition
– devouring 50 hot dogs
– famous
– Coney Island

QUESTIONS
– Why do they have a hot dog completion?
– How would someone feel after devouring 50 hot dogs?
– Why is this a famous competition?
– Why is the competition held at Coney Island?

READ
– Joey Chestnut broke his world record and ate 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes.
– It has been a Coney Island tradition since 1916.

RECITE

– The hot-dog competition is a tradition in the USA. I infer that they have the competition to make money because there was lots of sponsorship signs around and lots of people were in the audience who probably had to pay to attend the competition.

– After eating so many hot-dogs, people would feel disgusting and very sick. They would feel like throwing up and I would think some of the competitors probably did throw up. I know this because whenever I have overeaten I feel really sick.

– It is a popular competition because it’s so unusual. It’s unusual because you don’t see people eating 69 hot-dogs everyday. It makes people want to watch it because they are shocked that people could eat so much food in such a short time.

– I think it is held at Coney Island annually because it has become a famous tradition in the United States.

REVIEW

Write your own review in 1-2 paragraphs. Your review will summarise the article in your own words, explain your opinions/inferences and support your opinions/inferences with evidence.

OPEN MINDED PORTRAIT HOMEWORK

Watch the video below and complete an open-minded portrait (homework) as if you were Joey Chestnut. Remember an open-minded portrait is a descriptive piece of writing, written from a characters perspective. Include how he was feeling and why as well as what he was thinking and why. Your open minded portrait must be at least one paragraph but will hopefully be longer. If you are stuck on ideas for your open minded portrait look back on our blog to the open minded portraits on James Arthur that were completed during term 1.

SQ3R

We have started looking at SQ3Rs.
Survey
We have unpacked what surveying a text means. We discussed that when we survey a text we scan it for key words and key pieces of information without fully reading the text. When we survey the text we look at headings, sub-headings, key words, bolded words, etc.

We used the text below to survey and we thought that the following were the key ideas and the key words.
– shark attacks
– 1916
– Jersey Shore
– sharks
– mauled
– provoked

Questions
We used our key words and ideas to come up with some questions. Our questions are:
– Did people in Jersey Shore have the same knowledge about sharks in 1916?
– Were the people scared of the shark before the attack?
– Was this shark provoked?
– Is the boy in the picture, not scared of the shark?

READ THE TEXT
From our reading we found key ideas from the text.
– A century ago, people in America thought sharks were harmless.
– People were shocked when a shark killed four people in 1916.
– Boys were killed in a creek by a shark.

Recite

We answered our questions.

– A century ago, people were not scared of sharks. They thought they were not threatening and sharks were scared to come too close.

– We believe the shark was not provoked. We think this because sharks sometimes attack people as they think the people are seals or some type of prey.

REVIEW

We find it hard to believe that people did not know the dangers about sharks in 1916. Surely there would have been some time of shark attack prior to 1916. The previous attacks may not have been communicated to people in Jersey Shore because of the lack of technology during this time period.

Even though we thought the Jersey Shore shark attacks were a disaster, it was also a great learning experience because it taught them that sharks could be dangerous.
