Heather McCollister

Class Name: Literature 2 – Grade 8 and 9

This week’s focus: Plot

To Be Completed this Week:
As we consider plot, in reference to Huck Finn, record answers to the following questions in point form (with as much detail as possible) this week on a blank sheet of paper that you keep in a binder or notebook:
– List the major events that take place in the story as a result of the conflict?
– How do the interactions of the characters heighten the tension of the conflict that exists?
– What external impulses heighten the tension of the conflict that exists – weather, war, events.
– What is the main problem? How is it solved?
– What events form the highest point or climax of the story’s tension?

Contribute with quotes to the document supporting Huck’s Coming of Age. Make sure you follow the example I laid out. (Quote, then the place it is found, one sentence giving a brief background about what has happened and your name)

Finish working on Art of Poetry Chapter 4 – Words. In your commonplace book, record your favourite poem from this section. Begin working on Chapter 5. Sound and more Sound.
