JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "Alligator Story" by Louis Armstrong; "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill" by The Beatles; "Wedding Rain" by Liz Story]

In thinking back on the literature analysis you should be finishing up this week (and/or consulting your active reading notes), describe 2-3 literary techniques the author used.  What purpose(s) did these techniques serve?  How would a Dickensian character, theme, or plot line complement or disrupt the structure/tone?  Be sure to include the title and author.

1. Journal
2. Quiz on lecture
3. Deconstructing lecture and comparing notes
4. Segues to Great Expectations & Catch-22

  1. Here's a quote I'd like to share:

    “Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become.”
    Steve Jobs
    Co-founder of Apple Computer

  2. We suggest Cameron Reese's Music, particularly Listen to the Music. (Cause we'll be listening to a speech!) ((For Jan 30th music))
