Read until page 70 (chapter 16) of Ham on Rye, and respond to the prompt below in a 200-250 word response. Write your response as a structured paragraph. Integrate at least two citations from the novel to help illustrate your points.
- What kind of world is Henry growing up in? What stands out to you about the characters that populate his life: his parents, his schoolmates, other characters he meets, etc.? What kinds of lessons is he learning? How might these lessons be affecting his attitude toward life and other people?
To respond, click on “leave a comment” (written below). You’ll have to sign in with your WordPress account (or enter your email address and your name). Write your response. Please write your full name at the bottom of your response so I can identify you. Click on “post comment.” Copy and paste your response onto a Word document and save a copy for yourself, just in case. You don’t need to print it and bring it to class.
While I encourage you to read and be inspired by each other’s responses, each response must be completed individually. Feel free to quote each other, if you like. If you do, just make sure you give credit to the original author. If your post is too similar to any posts above yours, I’ll assume you copied it/them.
The responses are always due before class on the due date. You must attend class in order to be eligible for a grade on your response.
