3/1 Classwork

Final library day!

Turnitin Drafts 
1: upload ALL of your RASH sections for the individual  and combined sections for the Final Draft

Thesis Statements
1: you need four things: novel title, author, topic, bold present tense verb

a- In Life of Pi, Yann Martel proposes that religious faith is best experienced as an unfolding of multiple stories.

b- Alice Walker, in her award winning novel The Color Purple, addresses traumatic violence against African American women as her characters find hope through giving voice to their stories.

c- Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk's brutally satirical novel, renounces America's consumerism and contends that male identity is corrupted in the pursuit of material possessions.
