Next, you’re going to get into groups for Socratic Seminar.  Remember, only half of you will sign up to lead. The rest of you will lead a seminar for The Things They Carried.

Finally, you will be getting a MWDS for 1984.

With the time remaining, meet with your Socratic Seminar groups (if you have one) or begin reading 1984 or your Victorian Lit. text.
