Reserving judgments is a matter of infinite hope.

gatsby1This weekend, read chapter 1 of The Great Gatsby. Write a "book blog." You may have heard of a book log before in which one writes their thoughts and observations about a book in general or focused around a particular theme or motif. Well, we will be doing just that, with the entries on our blogs.

Focus your observations on the following:

  • The American Dream

  • Character Development

  • Literary Devices (metaphor, sensory details ie. color, foreshadowing, etc)

Make at least one observation per chapter from each category. At times, there may be other particular foci for the book blog. A reading schedule is forthcoming.

Don't forget to come out to Annie this weekend!
