Wednesday, Nov. 14th

Today we finished our discussion of Tim O'Brien's Things They Carried. Possible topics for the Short Story Analysis paper we will be writing were pointed out in class.

Discussion notes looked like the following for each class:
section 3, part 1
section 3, part 2

Section 4, part 2
Section 4, part 1

 Secondly, we read aloud 0.5 pages to 1 pages of your finished memoirs to the class. We also answered the following questions on the back of our final-final copy:

1. Describe the writing process this time. What did you do differently? How much time did you allocate to this? What were some aspects of your writing you focussed on?

2. Is your piece in a publishable state? If so, why? If not, why not?

3. If you had to write another memoir, what would you do differently?

1. Read Jhumpa Lahiri's Interpreter of Maladies. You can find the PDF in the Contents section of our Edline page.

2. Complete the worksheet titled Interpreter Worksheet for the same letter you were assigned previously.

3. Many were assigned the task of redoing their In-Class discussion notes for Things They Carried. To find a sample of notes done well, see Irissa Kim or Sarah Kim from section 3.

4. IRB2 weblog. Take a picture of your book and post it on your weblog (not mine). Describe one character in a short story and describe the way the author develops the character. 300 words minimum.
