HW10 due 9/26: Where are You Going…

1. Research and take notes on Joyce Carol Oates (half a page).  These notes should be written in the notes section of your binder.  As you are researching Oates, consider what details would be critical to understanding/appreciating her writing.  Note those details.
2. Read and annotate Joyce Carol Oates’ Where are you Going, Where have you Been? (click the link for a copy of the short story). Review the annotating expectations in the course syllabus. Focus your annotations on thematic observations. I am very interested in what you annotate and why you annotated it!
3. Class Forum–Post two discussion questions.
3. Have a great weekend!
