This week we will conclude our study of William Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying." It is imperative that you are reading the text independently and annotating. You will be responsible for engaging in a Socratic Seminar on Wednesday. The Socratic seminar is an opportunity for you and your colleagues to engage in collaborative intellectual conversations. You should prepare by reading the novel and brining in passages you want to discuss. Consider elements like characterization, theme, and symbols when searching for possible passages. In addition, I will facilitate the discussions by asking questions. You will be graded on how will you contribute quality responses, observations and questions to the overall discussion. Please note, there will be an assessment on Friday over the entire novel as well. Use the information throughout the week to help you to prepare for this exam.
