thinking: to get the students to reflect on the ENV text and elaborate it on the basis of analysing the text 'Love Story';

subject specific: to develop the text analysis skills by applying the ENV text

Glossary: ENV text = the system of parameters, values and procedures used as an algorithm to describe a text)

Materials:  Love Story by Eric Segul


This is the last but one lesson of the year, so we decided that we will take a new text and will analyse it using the ENV text that has been developed throughout the course. The students were supposed to to review


a)    At home they had to elaborate their ENV text: explain which parameters of a  text  you have selected, choose one of the parameters and analyse it
Version 1 (if all have chosen one – group them and get to learn from eaxh other and summarise)
Version 2 (if different) – start to get them to tell what they chose and how analysed

Summarise: what you have learned about the text ; about using the model
Vocab = eye the cheese – look at a beuatiful woman; amble = stroll; cut to ribbons; endemic – belonging to; bail out – extricate from a difficult situation; pithy (pithi)
brief, forceful, and meaningful in expression; full of vigor, flagrant - shockingly noticeable or evident; obvious; glaring: a flagrant error.
2. notorious; scandalous: a flagrant crime; a flagrant offender.
3. Archaic . blazing, burning, or glowing; quibble - to evade the truth or importance of an issue by raising trivial distinctions and objections; to find fault or criticize for petty reasons; cavil.
e.g. POV: first person narrator=the protagonist, a student, young man, from a rich famil (studies in harvard = prestigious), likes to look at beautiful women, uses slang, is not quite serious with studies – a typical student (last pre-exam  night); not without a sesne of humour; studies history; )
Means of characterisation – nicknames; epithets; speech; behaviour; attitude;
Setting – how does this influence the plot? Plot: first meeting, first impression, first date.
Organisation: introduction – setting – reconstruction of the event, surprise element, unpredictable ending; language: slang, colloquial, that of mockery.

Discuss: an ideal tool: content (short but comprehensive), format (user-friendly) any layout: grid, list, spidogram, pizza, bar graph etc.

a)    reflect on how you did the task (first devised parameters or values or started to analyse from the text) how and what you improved in the model
