Welcome back to the blog! I hope you got a lot of readin done today! Here’s what I’d like you to do:
1. Name which Essential Question you’d like to discuss (1, 2 or 3).
For example: Essential Question 1 – Kids vs. Adults
2. Write a possible answer to that question.
For example: Harper Lee believes that adults are less openminded than kids are. She thinks that kids have many lessons to learn, but they learn them easier than adults do.
3. Copy a quote or paraphrase a section that proves your response, with page number.
For example: Miss Maudie Atkinson gives the kids information about Boo Radley, not realizing that she is making their curiosity worse. She is just spreading the rumors that she’s heard and not opening her mind to the possibility that they are wrong. The kids are curious and want to learn more, while the adults just want to leave him alone (and be left alone themselves). (p. 44)
4. Respond to something another team member has said in the discussion on this blog.
For example: Fiara – your ideas about characters breaking down racial barriers were very interesting. I agree that the kids are more accepting of blacks probably because their major female role model was Calpurnia.
That’s it! Good luck and have fun! After you post, go ahead and borrow ideas from other teammates’ posts to add to your EQ sheets!
