You all have a few things to accomplish for tonight and leading into next class:
- Make sure that you have completed the reading of chapters two and three. Chapter two is long and complicated and also quite disturbing - get through it. Use your motif chart to guide you through the reading - all of the motifs show up in chapter two. Pay attention to new characters like Trueblood and Norton. Consider any patterns you're seeing in the Invisible Man's behavior. Annotate! Draw connections. In chapter three there's a bit of a break because it's kinda short - note the motifs - you have all but one represented.
- Begin work on your first mini-essay on the symbolism of the Battle Royal scene. Make sure that you follow the instructions given by Ms. Alley. Remember that your draft is due on the 16th.
Any extra credit or missing assignments that you did not submit today in class will be due from you by your next class. Any assignments still missing will be converted into actual zeroes.
