In addition to your standard seminar prep, please answer TWO more additional questions from Wednesday's DP using a quote from the book and your own analysis to support your response to the question. These should be in solid TEA paragraph form. Here's an example.....
Example from a student response to The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald:
If someone were asked to describe Daisy, after only reading the first few chapters, one might use words such as elegant, innocent, proper, or timid; all words that describe the facade of a true East Egger. Fitzgerald possibly puts these words purposefully into the reader’s head in order to make the contrast to that of Daisy at the end of the novel. This scene, where Nick is over at Tom and Daisy’s house for the first time, is a perfect example of this image setting that Fitzgerald does so beautifully: "The only completely stationary object in the room was an enormous couch on which two young women were buoyed up as though on an anchored balloon. They were both in white and their dresses were rippling and fluttering as if they had just been blown back in after a short flight around the house" (12). The way that Fitzgerald plays with imagery here invokes innocence and lightness as the personality of these two girls. The way that he describes Jordan and Daisy in conjunction with a stationary object, might also suggest that these sorts of women need a support buoy or man to keep them grounded in reality and keep them from drifting away.
