Activity 4:
Emotions
 

Charley's emotions take a roller coaster ride in chapters 5 and 6. Very different causes have extreme effects on his emotions and what he does with his emotions.

Task

  • Read Chapter 5 - Night and Chapter 6 - Farming.
  • Generate a list of emotions (hunger, fear, hate) Charley had as he ended his first battle and through the completion of his second battle.
  • Write the causes of these emotions and then the physical and/or mental effects they had on Charley.

Process and Resources

  • Process
    • Create and outline or thinking web of Charley's emotions.
    • Each should contain the cause of the emotion and link to the physical and/or mental effects.
    • Explain how you came up with the effects on Charley.
    • Use other resources to support your explanations.
  • Resources

Project Guidelines

Use the following guidelines for completing your project:

  • Outlines should be typed and look as follows:
    • I. Emotion (6-10 emotions)
      • A. Cause (may be more than one)
        • 1. Effect (may be more than one)
        • a. Explanation (include resources used)
  • Thinking Webs
    • Charley should be in the center of the web.
    • Emotions branch out from Charley (6-10)
    • Causes branch out from the emotions (may be more than one).
    • Effects branch out from the causes (may be more than one).
    • Explanations branch out from the effects (include resources used).
  • Evaluation = 100 points
    • Typing = 20
      • 0-3 errors = 20
      • 4-6 errors = 15
      • 7-9 errors = 10
      • 10 + errors = 0
    • Emotions = 15
      • Have between 6 and 10
    • Causes = 15
      • Equal to or more than the number of emotions
    • Effects = 15
      • Equal to or more than the number of emotions
    • Explanations = 15
      • Equal to the number of effects
      • Resources listed with each explanation
    • Resources = 20
      • 6 + (at least one internet and audio tape) = 20
      • 4-5 (at least one internet or audio tape) = 15
      • 2-3 (at least one internet) = 10
      • 1 of any of the resources = 5

Conclusion

  • In groups of 2 or 3, compare and/or contrast your outlines or thinking webs.
    • Discuss why you chose the specific emotions.
    • Discuss how you supported your explanations.
