Questions and Ideas to Consider in "This Blessed House"


QCOPing and Reflecting

“This Blessed House” is located on pages 136-157.  I read 155-157 and stopped right before the end.  In addition to QCOPing (and avoiding summary post-its) you must consider each of the following for today’s discussion:

  1. quotations that emphasize hints of the contradiction
  2. conflict resolution
  3. thematic idea?

Today in class you will be assigned to read either “A Temporary Matter” (Group A; pages 1-22) or “Sexy” (Group B; pages 83-110).  Please QCOP your assigned story and be prepared to be placed into groups to discuss the story with a particular focus in mind.
