5 Evaluation Situation 2 Let s begin! Your town or city is about to open a community centre that will offer a variety of services to people of all ages. It will be a place to socialize, to take courses, to enjoy sports and culture, and generally to celebrate good moments in life. It will also offer help to people in crisis. Counsellors are available to help people with emotional, legal, and even financial problems. The opening celebration will include a concert of live and recorded music, along with speeches and readings by community members. Emcee Florian Forillo is looking for input on the playlist and readings. By involving community members in planning the program, the centre is making a statement about how the community will be involved in its future. Here is the invitation to participate. Lucian Milasan / Shutterstock SHAPE THE CELEBRATION Help us plan our opening celebration suggestions are needed! We are proud to unveil the winning design in our recent art contest, which is shown above. This striking painting will become our logo, and will be transformed into a mosaic for the lobby of our new Community Centre. We chose it to represent the diversity of our community and the mutual support the Centre will encourage in the years to come. We need your participation in planning our opening celebration. Every song and poetry reading on the program should be meaningful to our audience. They should represent the problems the people of our community face, and express our hopes and plans for the future. Our DJ, Claude Francoeur, will be weaving these songs and poems together with lots of talk to inspire our audience. Do you know a song or poem that belongs on the program? Please send in your nominations, along with a 300-word analysis that justifies your choice. Tell us about the content and quality of these works, and why we should hear them during our celebration. If your poem is chosen, you will be asked to read it aloud to the audience. Emcee Florian Forillo is waiting for your suggestions! SOFAD 5

6 ENG English In Poems and Songs Task 1: A Song that Makes Us Feel a Thought Words make you think. Music makes you feel. A song makes you feel a thought. ~Yip Harburg Source: Which song do you know delivers an important message to your community about its problems or hopes? It could be a song with a message from one age group to another in your community, or a song that raises an issue everyone shares. Write a 300- to 350-word analysis of a song you feel could be played or sung at the opening celebration of the Community Centre. Remember you have two choices: Your song could represent a problem faced by the people of your community; Or Point a way to a better future. Emcee Florian Forillo and DJ Claude Francoeur are likely to use what you say as they introduce the song and talk about it afterwards. Keep in mind the five discussion and analysis questions you wrote in Learning Situation 3 as you write your comments. Remember your audience your community as you write. Checklist for Your Comment on the Song When you finish writing your analysis, use the following checklist to ensure you have covered the required topics. Question No Somewhat Did I identify the issue (message of your song) and explain its importance to my community? Did I point out how the structure of the song helps to deliver the message? Did I explain how imagery, poetic devices and irony add to the impact of the song? Did I inform my audience about what type of music is represented in this song? Did I present any information about the creative process behind the song that might interest my audience? Did I adapt what I had to say so that my audience my community would find it interesting and understandable? Yes, fully 6 SOFAD

7 Evaluation Situation 2 Task 2: A Poem That Lights the Way Write a 300- to 350-word analysis of a poem with a great message for your community. You may use the poem below or find your own poem for this task. You can use the websites noted in Learning Situation 3 to help you find a poem. Once again, the poem must address a community problem or point a way to a better future. Kindness by Naomi Shihab Nye Before you know what kindness really is you must lose things, feel the future dissolve in a moment like salt in a weakened broth. What you held in your hand, what you counted and carefully saved, all this must go so you know how desolate the landscape can be between the regions of kindness. How you ride and ride thinking the bus will never stop, the passengers eating maize and chicken will stare out the window forever. Before you learn the tender gravity of kindness, you must travel where the Indian in a white poncho lies dead by the side of the road. You must see how this could be you, how he too was someone who journeyed through the night with plans and the simple breath that kept him alive. Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside, you must know sorrow as the other deepest thing. You must wake up with sorrow. You must speak to it till your voice catches the thread of all sorrows and you see the size of the cloth. Then it is only kindness that makes sense anymore, only kindness that ties your shoes and sends you out into the day to mail letters and purchase bread, only kindness that raises its head from the crowd of the world to say it is I you have been looking for, and then goes with you everywhere like a shadow or a friend. (Kindness by Naomi Shihab Nye. from Words Under the Words: Selected Poems. Copyright 1995 by Naomi Shihab Nye. The Eighth Mountain Press; October 1, Used with the permission of Naomi Shihab Nye.) SOFAD 7

8 ENG English In Poems and Songs Emcee Florian Forillo and DJ Claude Francoeur will borrow from what you say as they introduce the poem and comment on it afterwards. Think about the five discussion and analysis questions you wrote in Learning Situation 3 as you write your comments. Remember your audience your community as you write. Checklist for Your Comment on the Poem When you finish writing your analysis, use the following checklist to ensure you have covered the required topics. Question No Somewhat Did I identify the issue or message of my poem and explain its importance to my community? Did I point out how the form of the poem helps to deliver the message? Did I explain how imagery, poetic devices and irony add to the impact of the poem? Did I present any information about the creative process behind the poem that might interest my audience? Did I adapt what I had to say so that my audience my community would find it interesting and understandable? Yes, fully Task 3: Give Your Voice to a Poem Congratulations! The poem you nominated for presentation at the Community Centre opening party has been accepted, and Emcee Florian Forillo phoned you yesterday to ask you to record your reading of it. 14 If you chose to nominate Kindness or any other recorded poem from this course, listen to it now on the media resource page. If you nominated another poem, try to find a reading of it on the web. You should practise your own reading of the poem to reflect your understanding of it, but it s always interesting to hear a poem from another reader s point of view. Now practise and record your oral reading of your poem, using volume, pitch, tone, pace, and emphasis to communicate your own interpretation of its meaning. Use the checklist below to self-evaluate and guide your revision. 8 SOFAD

9 Evaluation Situation 2 Checklist for your Reading of a Poem Question No Somewhat Did I read my poem so that it makes sense to a listener? Did I pay attention to punctuation in my reading, respecting commas, periods, question marks, etc.? Did I add expression to my reading by varying the volume in appropriate places? Did I add expression to my reading by varying the pitch of my voice in appropriate places? Did I add expression to my reading by varying the tone of my voice in appropriate places? Did I add expression to my reading by varying the pace of my reading appropriately? Did I add expression to my reading by emphasizing keywords and phrases? Yes, fully Task 4: The Long View of Learning Reflect on your own learning process throughout this course. What did you learn about yourself, your abilities and your interests as you worked your way through this course? Write a Ietter to your teacher or tutor describing your learning experience. Write about: Your favourite learning activity; Any achievement that made you proud of your progress; Any difficulties you encountered; What this course taught you about language, communication, and beauty. While writing about these topics, you may want to use some of the following sentence starters. They will get you thinking about what and how you learned: I learned that... I was surprised that I... I was puzzled when... I noticed that I... I was frustrated when... I discovered that I... I felt that I... I was pleased that I... I solved a problem when... Write a personal letter between 200 and 300 words in length. Although this task will not receive a numerical mark, you will receive a feedback score of A, B, or C on the thoughtfulness and engagement you display in your answer. SOFAD 9
