Focus: How can we better understand the characters in Beloved?
If you were absent yesterday, please turn in your second round of poetry responses and pick up a new packet.
1. Warming up: Getting together other people who took interest in your character; getting to know that character by responding to some creative writing prompts
2. Discussing the third and fourth chapters of Beloved, Socratic seminar style
3. Wrapping up!
1. Please read the next four chapters (5, 6, 7, and 8) in Beloved by this Friday. For your reading ticket, please find one word that you've taken notice of in the novel so far (perhaps because it's repeated, or because Morrison's using it in a new way), and type a paragraph or two exploring its meaning. Please include at least one textual passage in your response.
2. Next poetry response due next Monday. HARD COPIES only, please.
