Hmmm...not going to lie. We're off to a rough start with this text. Let's see if we can step up our game today.
Here are some things I'm looking for from you.
1. That you are participating. Aim for at least 3-5 thoughtful posts during discussion, throughout discussion. At least. My folks who are dormant will begin writing 1 page essay responses to the reading next class.
2. Please proofread your work.
3. For EVERY question you ask and EVERY response you make, provide a quote that contextualizing that question or comment. Be sure that you don't just throw it out there for your reading to infer why you're using it, but rather, makes its relevance clear by discussing that quote.
Here are a couple great examples from your classmates to model your posts after.
Zoe asked, "On page 33 Catherine Myrtle's sister is whispering to Nick the details of Tom's and Myrtle's relationship. Tom has come up with such an elaborate lie about Daisy being Catholic so he can not divorce her. How come Tom has created such an elaborate lie not to leave Daisy when he "loves" Myrtle?"
And Sam asked, "On page 33 "Neither of them can stand the person they're married to." Why is there a reoccurring theme of unhappy marriages? Is it the time that's preventing them from getting a divorce or is there something bigger going on?
