Your group is responsible for preparing the following:
Part I (power point): BACKGROUND. Teach your topic. 10 minutes max. Feel free to use sound and image. Include a works cited page on the last slide.
Part II: CLOSE READING. Lead a close reading of two passages from the novel. Select passages carefully to demonstrate connection of the topic to the text. Feel free to draw from our "Close Reading of a Literary Passage' handout when designing the flow of your close-reading task.
Part III: DISCUSSION. Prepare at least 9 open-ended questions addressing the novel more holistically… the idea is to explore how your topic contributes to the overall meaning of the novel. (Q’s can be about specific chapters, passages, characters, or events in the novel). Please make sure someone in your group is prepared to kick off these discussions with an initial response or clarifying question in case your classmates need a boost to get into the discussion.
Please SHARE the presentation and the close reading passages with me (email@example.com) the day before your presentation - I'll have the materials ready for you when you get to class!
