Homework tonight is reading "A Rose for Emily" on page 526 in your textbook. Expect a quiz tomorrow at the beginning of class on basic comprehension. I do suggest reading the story and then visiting sparknotes.com when finished to help fill in some of the gaps. If you have time, it couldn't hurt to read the story again. :)
In class today we practiced analyzing literature by reading/discussion the poem on pages 3-4 of the textbook. Then in groups we analyzed a short story handout called "Sleeping." (This selection does not appear in your textbook.) Analysis involved these steps you should employ when reading any genre of fiction:
1. What is going on?
2. What does it mean?
3. Where in the text in this meaning revealed?
