Cat’s Cradle chapters 78-106

1. Read and respond to at least 3 different peers’ work from yesterday.

2. Open the following document and choose one topic to write an essay on. This essay does NOT have a length requirement… but I don’t think that an essay of less than, say, 2-3 pages could possibly be thorough enough for a 12th grade essay. Be sure to answer the question thoroughly, with adequate detail and support from the novel. I will also be looking for the proper parts of an essay, grammar and spelling, as well as MLA formatting. (see the attached document for grading rubric as well).        

  • print the essay and turn it in
  • post it to your blog as well

3. Lastly, there were MANY profound quotes in last night’s reading. If you are interested in earning extra credit, I invite you to find 2 of these quotes to respond to. Explain who said the quote and under what circumstances. Explore what Vonnegut was saying about man/life/society by including this quote and give a personal response as to what you think of it and why. This will ONLY be worth points if it is a full paragraph response with a lot of detail and support.
