Once More to the Lake

Read Once More to the Lake by E.B. White tonight (yes, he's the guy who wrote Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and Elements of Style). There is a wistful cadence to this piece that makes it rather endearing and a bit haunting. Hopefully it's one you enjoy.

  • As you read, mark it up some and note various features of the text.
  • Then note your favorite passage. This could be one you find especially well written, or it could be one that interests you for some reason (feature, subject, etc.). 
  • Be prepared to explain your favorite passage to the class and to be asked to explain more if your comments stay on the surface.
