On Tuesday, 9/8, you’ll spend the class period reflecting and writing about your summer reading books. Specifically, you’ll be asked to consider how our discussions of “why literature matters” this week apply to the two books you read over the summer.
You will need (bring to class):
- Copies of your summer reading books
- “Why Literature Matters” article
- “Why Literature Matters” chart
- Any notes you have taken
You will be given a choice of two prompts; choose one. To prepare for the in-class write, be sure to review specific moments in each novel that stood out to you and why these moments were significant. As always, you’ll be asked to give specific examples from the texts.
