Today we discussed "Touching Bottom," and created a set of notes around the primary elements of fiction: conflict, symbolism, and theme. Next, I did a close reading of the story and identified twenty quotations connected to the key elements we discussed. Tomorrow you should come to class prepared to write on one of these three elements.
Sorry, I accidentally deleted my notes from the Interwrite board. I do however, (thanks to Zack) have a hard copy for anyone who needs such.
