Day 5

English 101 Day 5

Getting started on “Why Now?” question.

My notes on Intro

Chapter 1 and 2 at your tables—two or three interesting things for us to look at.
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?

My notes

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

Read WHT: Ch 5 (Saturday Ch 7; Sunday Ch 8; Monday Ch 9; Tuesday Ch 12)
