1 CP ENGLISH th Grade CP SUMMER READING ASSIGNMENTS You will be working on 1 summer reading assignment. Before returning to school next school year, you will need to read The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros and complete this assignment. This organizer is intended to guide your reading and focus your thoughts in preparation for the discussions, summer reading test and writing assignments you will engage in when you return in August. You can use this on the test. Assignment is due: the first day of school: August 19, Assignment: The House on Mango Street- by Sandra Cisneros This assignment does not need to be typed; it can be handwritten and stapled together for submission. You may use the graphic organizer here to write directly on, or you may type it up. Simply label everything and print it out for submission on the first day of school. This assignment is designed to encourage active reading habits by requiring you to pause and reflect after you read. It is important to note that The House on Mango Street is written as a series of vignettes. A VIGNETTE (French, "little vine") is a short composition showing considerable skill, especially such a composition designed with little or no plot or larger narrative structure. Often vignettes are descriptive or evocative in their nature. Cisneros writes vignettes about her life rather than using normal chronological plot sequencing. Each chapter is a vignette or a snapshot of her life as she remembers it. SECTION 1: Setting Instructions: Esperanza s reactions to her physical environment often reveal aspects of her character. Choose three large or small elements of Esperanza s physical environment (e.g., houses, neighborhoods, city, school, trees, concrete, windows) and follow them as they repeat throughout the novel. In the first column, write the quotations (with their page numbers) that describe your selected elements. In the second column, write a short analysis that explores Esperanza s reaction to the element. Physical Element One: Concrete Detail and Page Number Please discuss Esperanza s overall reaction to the element:

2 Physical Element Two: Concrete Detail and Page Number Please discuss Esperanza s overall reaction to the element: Physical Element Three: Concrete Detail and Page Number Please discuss Esperanza s overall reaction to the element:

3 SECTION 2: Female Characters Please examine the similarities and differences between Esperanza and three other female characters in the book. Aspects that a character shares with Esperanza (ways in which they are alike) should be written in the left- hand column; aspects that are unique to a character (ways in which the character is different from Esperanza) should be listed in the right- hand column. Character #1 Name Aspects Shared with Esperanza Aspects Unique to this Character Character #2 Name Aspects Shared with Esperanza Aspects Unique to this Character Character #3 Name Aspects Shared with Esperanza Aspects Unique to this Character

4 SECTION 3: Mood Mood is the emotional effect that a text creates for the audience, the way the reader feels when reading a work. It is the atmosphere that an author creates in a literary work with the intention of evoking a certain emotion or feeling from the reader. Mood may be created by a combination of such elements as setting, diction, figurative language, and syntax. Examples of Some Mood Words POSITIVE MOOD WORDS amused awed bouncy calm cheerful chipper confident contemplative content determined dignified dreamy ecstatic empowered energetic enlightened enthralled excited exhilarated flirty giddy grateful harmonious hopeful hyper idyllic joyous jubilant liberating light- hearted loving mellow nostalgic optimistic passionate peaceful playful pleased refreshed rejuvenated relaxed relieved satiated satisfied sentimental silly surprised sympathetic thankful thoughtful touched trustful vivacious warm welcoming NEGATIVE MOOD WORDS aggravated annoyed anxious apathetic apprehensive barren brooding cold confining confused cranky crushed cynical depressed desolate disappointed discontented distressed drained dreary embarrassed enraged envious exhausted fatalistic foreboding frustrated futile gloomy grumpy haunting heartbroken hopeless hostile indifferent infuriated insidious intimidated irate irritated jealous lethargic lonely melancholic merciless moody morose nauseated nervous nightmarish numb overwhelmed painful pensive pessimistic predatory rejected restless scared serious sick somber stressed suspenseful tense terrifying threatening uncomfortable vengeful violent worried

5 Complete the graphic organizer below. Choose three vignettes (chapters) from The House on Mango Street. Determine what mood is established in each vignette. Provide a concrete detail and commentary that support your interpretation of the mood. Quotation that reveals mood Mood Word One sentence of commentary to explains how the quote establishes mood Commentary: Vignette Page Number: Quotation: Mood Word Commentary: Vignette Page Number: Quotation: Mood Word Commentary: Vignette Page Number: Quotation:

6 SECTION 4: Cisneros Style in My Name (10-11) Cisneros writes in a style that can be considered prose (novel- like), but she also employs literary devices frequently found in poetry. Re- read the chapter My Name, and find two examples of imagery, two examples of connotation, and two examples of repetition and list those in the left- hand column. In the right- hand column, discuss how each example creates a specific mood. Concrete details of imagery How these examples create a specific mood. Imagery is language that appeals to the five senses (taste, touch, sight, sound, smell). Concrete details of repetition How these examples create a specific mood Repetition is when a word or phrase is repeated.

7 Concrete details of connotation Connotation is what a word suggests beyond its basic definition. The emotions and images associated with a word. How these examples create a specific mood SECTION 5: Perspective Esperanza sees the world as both a naïve pre- teen and an insightful adult. Cite five (5) direct quotes that demonstrate Esperanza s naïveté (innocent perspective) and five (5) events that demonstrate her insight (mature perspective). Quotes demonstrating Esperanza s naïveté Quotes demonstrating Esperanza s insight

8 SECTION 6: Final Analysis The House on Mango Street addresses numerous social issues such as housing, education, the environment, prejudice, the treatment of women, poverty, and immigrant struggles. Select three (3) key social issues that are represented in the book, provide a brief explanation of how this issue is addressed in the story and two concrete details for each. Social Issue: How the issue is addressed: Concrete Details: Social Issue: How the issue is addressed: Concrete Details: Social Issue: How the issue is addressed: Concrete Details: As always, if you need extra assistance please me:
