Question description

Construct an open-ended question (see How to Ask an Open-ended Question handout) to ask your peers about the literature you read in the class. Avoid asking closed-end questions that require a “yes” or “no” answer. The question should not be overly broad or too general, but focus on specific literary conflicts, techniques, or themes.

In your initial post, please also share what you learned by reading your peers’ posts throughout the class. Review your initial response to the Clugston (2014) quote from Week One: “[T]here’s a powerful curiosity about human relationships and how to cope in the world in which we find ourselves” (section 1.1, “Connecting: Entering Into a Literary Experience,” para. 2). Based on what you learned about literature, what has changed?  How will these changes impact your perspective on literature?

This exercise will allow you to engage in a discussion you create with your peers. It also helps you to ask your own questions about literature, which can serve as a gateway to initiating critical analysis. Your initial post should be at least 200 words in length. The minimum word count does not include references.
