Students read, analyzed, annotated Adams (focus on transitions and argument development and ‘chunking’ subject matter) and Addams (focus on positively charged language and author’s position with shifts in language)
Students are to respond to the following questions in reference to the two works above:
- Describe how you think Adam’s attitude toward the audience is in this piece. Does it seem as though he recognizes an audience? If so, how?
- How does the Devil Baby story function to increase Addam’s understanding of people’s experience?
