Golden Lines Writing
Golden Lines: A golden line is a line of text that is especially meaningful, surprising, helpful or thought provoking. The line can be from a piece of student writing, textbook, novel, short story, play, movie, or primary source document, etc. As students read or write, they seek to find their own golden line. Once found, the golden line then provides an anchor for more writing and/or discussion. Why? In everyday life, people usually have a purpose for reading. You read your mail to sort through junk, find sales and specials, pay bills and look for cards and notes from friends. You read the newspaper and websites for information. Students also need a purpose for reading other than to answer the questions at the end of the chapter or because the teacher tells them to read. Discussion guidelines: 1. Responses to discussion questions must be a minimum of 150 words; however, if you would like to write more, please do! 2. Each student must reply directly to at least 2 other classmates through the comments section by the friday of each week. (IF you don’t you will not get credit.) 3. Comments must be respectful and a minimum of two sentences long. **Remember multiple viewpoints are essential to understanding concepts. It’s okay to think differently. 4. You have an option to use flip grid or write your discussion post. BOTH options will be posted on this forum. Please link your flip grid video. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ In a 150 word response, answer the following questions: Pick a golden line from the text and analyze it. Remember to discuss specific language and how it relates to the overall meaning of the poem. What is your reaction to the poem? Why? Review the example from: “A Rose that Grew..” and Golden Lines!
