Day 4

English 101 Day 4

  1. Names—Quiz Friday

  2. Questions about the class and teacher

  3. Getting started on "Why Now?" question.

    1. Intro and Chapter 1 at your tables—two or three interesting things for us to look at. (Leader, notetaker, reporter?)

    2. As a class
  • The essay is a compare contrast, with greater emphasis on the compare. But first we have to know what to look for. What was it like in the Southern Great Plains 1930's? Look at the forest, not the trees. Look for a thread.

    • What is the big picture, so far?

    • 3-5 pages isn't that much, so we're really looking for 3-4 similarities and maybe 1-2 differences.

HW: Read WHT: Ch 2

Change (get used to this) to the reading schedule: Cut chapter 3, 4 and 6 (so far) and read 5, 7 and 8 over the weekend instead. Chapter 9 for homework Monday and I'll have a revised schedule after that. I'm trying to get us all the way to the epilogue.
