Generalizations:

Generalizations with Mrs. Stroud 3/1/2020

Say WHAT?:

Say WHAT? Why are we doing this: (Student version) Today, we will be learning what a generalization is and how to identify it in the text. By the end of the day, you’ll be able to rock this yourself and jump into the homework flap of the flipbook and perhaps earn some table points! Learning Objective: (Dr. Yarbrough version) Students will be able to define a generalization as well as identify a text embedded generalization with use of key terms successfully two out of three times with table group support.

Generalization:

Generalization What is a Generalization? It is another type of author’s bias. It often appears as though is might be a fact because it comes from facts but can’t be proven (often because the evidence is too small/few or based on personal experience) * All you need is one exception to prove it false! It is a time when a broad statement is made in order to include all members of a group. It can be positive or negative.

Generalization:

Generalization Hint words to INCLUDE members in a group generalization: or Hint words to EXCLUDE members in a group generalization All None Always Never Everyone Nobody No one

All None Always Never Everyone Nobody No one No :

All None Always Never Everyone Nobody No one No STRONG WORDS MAKE GENERALIZATIONS EASIER TO FIND * All you need is an exception to break a generalization! Weaker words create a lumping together of a group with the possibility of an exception but are still indicating a generalization. Most Many Usually Generally Few

generalization:

generalization If your mom said… “You play video games all the time, why don’t you study?” * Did you see the generalization hint word ? You can say… I do other things like sleep, eat, and go on Instagram. You have noted exceptions to prove her generalization as invalid. *full disclosure: This is not wise to say to your mom. She won’t like it!

Generalization:

Generalization If the article says: The boys locker room always smells worse than the girls locker room. The best mile time listing is all boys. All girls are better students than boys. Everyone loves this English class. Locate the hint words: ? Hold up your whiteboard facing me!

Generalization :

Generalization Mrs. Stroud’s tests are hard. (table 1) Students are over scheduled in their free time. (table 2) Ramirez students are the kindest. (table 3) Substitute teachers can’t help with the assignments. (table 4) If it is past the due date, Mrs. Stroud won’t accept the work. (table 5) If you get lunch detention, you won’t get your lunch choice because they’ll sell out. (table 6) You can still have a generalization without a hint word . These can be found by critical thinking . Ask yourself if the statement has been proven true in the past or if you can think of an exception . Let me know if it is a generalization.

Locate the Generalization :

Locate the Generalization “Bat Attacks” by Laura Allen Table groups 1,3 & 5 (odds) 1. Find two generalizations on page 128 *one must have a hint word and two statements of fact. Underline them on your paper. 2. Take a moment and see if you can find an exception for the generalizations. Notate in margin (I’ll randomly pick table members for table points.) “Burning out at Nine” By Nadya Labi Table groups 2,4 & 6 (evens) 1. Find two generalizations on page 373 *one must have a hint word and two statements of fact. Underline them on your paper. 2. Take a moment and see if you can find an exception for the generalizations. Notate in margin (I’ll randomly pick table members for table points .)

Check the Generalization:

Check the Generalization Bat Attacks (odd # tables) Find a person from an even # table. Identify any hint words by circling on their paper. Highlight the generalizations. Strike through the fact statements. Turn into the blue basket in the back of the room. (Don’t forget your name) Burning out at Nine (Even # tables) Find a person from an odd # table. Identify any hint words by circling on their paper. Highlight the generalizations. Strike through the fact statements. Turn into the blue basket in the back of the room. (Don’t forget your name)

Generalization exception:

Generalization exception 1. Remember your chosen generalizations. 2. See if tablemates have different generalizations (You want to hedge your bets…have as many different examples as possible and double check to ensure it really is a generalization) 3. Take a moment and see if you can find an exception for the generalizations. I’ll randomly pick table members for table points: 1 point = generalization 1 point = generalizations with a hint word 1 point = if you can come up with an exception to the other teams’ generalization.

Generalizations Homework time!:

Generalizations Homework time! It is time to pull out your bias flipbook and fill in the page for generalization examples. Remember: Define it, highlight it, and cite it! Here is the example one more time! Author’s Bias- The author’s opinion of the subject they wrote about viewed through their choice of words. (definition from unit notes)   Example : The talented pitcher has not allowed fame and fortune to change his personality, as many other star athletes have. (Example found in the selection)   Title: “Nolan Ryan” Page Number: p. 575       Author’s Bias Loaded Word Generalization One-sided Argument Stereotype
