Seminar & Weekend Homework

Students who have their Realism & Naturalism Notes will play a hot-potato-quiz-game at the beginning of class.  Students who do not have notes will be relegated to the outer circle where they will complete their note-taking.  No notes = no hot-potato for you!

Students will seminar over “To Build a Fire” & we will primarily discuss the differences in the author’s approach to nature compared to the Romantics.

Over the weekend, students should read “from Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass” (399-406) and “from Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl” by Harriet A. Jacobs (407-410).  Write a paragraph for each narrative summarizing each author’s personal experiences with slavery.  Then write a paragraph analyzing difference between each author’s experiences.

Summaries due Tuesday 1/20/15 for a quiz grade.
