Day 81!

Happy Friday!

We will spend today finishing Joyce Carol Oates' "Where is Here"! Once we have finished that, we will talk about how her writing is similar and different from Edgar Allan Poe's.

On Monday, we will begin work on our semester essays. As I've mentioned, you will pick one of our three essential questions and develop a 5 paragraph essay that includes text evidence from three different pieces we've read so far this year.

The questions are :

What makes American literature American?
What is the relationship between literature and place?
How does literature shape or reflect society?
