9th graders, I’m uploading Wednesday Writing early this week. (I know, it’s a miracle I’m even uploading one.) The text that I want you to read is challenging. According to the reading level test you took earlier in the year, most of you should be able to read and comprehend it with a little bit of work. The text explores the nature of literature and poetry and how we define these things.
Please write a one-page response to this first chapter of Literary Theory. Make sure you are connecting with something in the chapter. I want you to read this text and try your best to get something out of it. (This is not only to practice for the core test coming up, but also for your sophomore year in high-school.) Please do NOT evaluate the text. Do NOT write about how it is difficult to read. I already know that. Remember, this assignment is a response, NOT an evaluation.
You’ll find the text on Moodle. You should upload your work there as well. This assignment is due by Wednesday, April 27.
