What is text? THat is one of the most important questions to be able to answer for the rest of your life. For our p[urposes here, the word text refers to a story, article, novel, chapter, painting, sculpture, or other thing created by an artist or author to be considered for learning (I guess).

Preparation to have The FINAL WORD
In order to move into this activity, students need to have completed a reading of a story, article, novel, chapter, painting, sculpture, or other selection. THey also need to have had a close reading of that “text”.
Students must pick what they consider to be the THE most striking intense and/or important feature from the piece. This passage can be a piece of a sentence, a whole sentence, a whole paragraph, but not longer than 2 paragraphs. It could be a detail section of a paining, a specific angle taken on a sculpture, a tone or mood described by a “text” or piece of “text”
Copy it down word for word (Page #s), and write down very clearly why you picked this passage, what it means for you.
