Come to class prepared to isolate one specific portion of the story and connecti it directly to a secondary source.  The source should be a song, a movie, another work of literature, a period in history, a histrical figure, or anything else that illustrates your understanding of the text and authorial intent.  Your response should be enlightening and IT SHOULD BE OUT OF THE BOX!  Common connections will not earn your props.  The deeper you go, the more significant your response is.  Surprise your classmates and get ready to GET OUT OF THE BOX!!!
