Great questions & responses last discussion, group. A few reminders of what I'm looking for your your work.
1. Be sure to carefully proofread your ideas.
2. Use the thread feature to indicate to whom you're replying. If you're beginning a new line of thinking or questioning, use the general post feature.
3. For each comment you make or question you ask, contextualize or support your thinking with text. Be sure, too, that you introduce the relevance of that comment to your thinking, thoughtfully incorporating your passage into your ideas versus throwing out the quote & leaving it to your audience to infer why you're using it. Please cite these quotes as well.
Here are a few good examples of posts from last class:
Grant asked, "On page 66 Nick says 'He reached in his pocket, and a piece of metal, slung on a ribbon, fell into my palm' while Gatsby is explaining his past accomplishments to Nick. Why do you think Gatsby came prepared with proof of his past accomplishments?"
And James commented, "I think that is a good interpretation of that quote. I think Gatsby knows that he chopped up on his description of his past like when on that same page [N]ick says, 'He hurried the phrase educated at Oxford, or swallowed it, or choked on it." So he says that to cover it up.'
And a good question from Austin: "Nick says, 'There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired.' What does Nick mean? How does this connect back to the characters? And How does this represent the secrete society?"
