Question Description

I need support with this English question so I can learn better.

In your small groups, focus only on the chapters “Dream House as Man vs. Self” (pg. 119, motif) and “Dream House as Choose-Your-Own Adventure” (pg. 162, genre). (should take approx 15-20 mins)

For both chapters, please answer questions 1-2, then follow step 3.

2. How are these fairytale expectations related to the story Machado is telling in this chapter? Are they the same as the genre/motif? Or different? How? What does that similarity or different tell us as readers?

3. Respond to your classmates—help them clarify and deepen their thinking.

**You only need to do one expectation/convention for each chapter, because you can come together as a group to discuss your own opinions! Think of the genre/footnote as commentary on the story—for this homework, you’re explaining what that commentary is.

**If you're not sure how to do this, I demonstrate it here (Links to an external site.) and here (Links to an external site.).
