Watch SyncTVWatch.

  • Focus: Pay special attention to the portion of the episode from 2:45-3:30, as students discuss how Janie and the group are represented. Think about how Hurston characterizes the group versus how she characterizes Janie. Is the group a character? How does Janie stand out from the rest? How does Hurston make this distinction?
  • Focus: From 4:12-5:25 the students engage in a spirited debate about the right to privacy as a member of a community. Consider their opposing sides. Do we surrender privacy as members of a community? What is a fair amount of privacy to surrender? What is too much?
  • Focus: Watch the portion of the episode from 7:00-7:45 as the students discuss individuality and community. Do we instinctually seek out communities and strive to belong, as Liam insists? Or is striving to be a part of a community, as Spencer suggests, a fool's errand? Or is this simply a false distinction? Consider the different viewpoints.

Discuss

What new thoughts do they have after hearing the students' discussion?

In small groups (3-4 students), discuss some of the following questions:

  • How does the group view Janie upon her return? What kinds of things do they say about her? Why do they come to this consensus about her? Do you think the things they say about her are warranted, or unjust?
  • One of the major themes of Their Eyes Were Watching God, as discussed in the SyncTV episode, is the individual vs. the collective. How does Hurston explore this theme in the excerpt? What has Janie done to break out of the collective? Do any other characters show signs of individualism? Cite specific examples from the excerpt.
  • The narration in the excerpt is figurative and distinct; the dialogue is colloquial and dialect-heavy. Why do you think Hurston's voice is so different from the voice(s) of her characters? What bearing does this storytelling choice have on the theme of the individual vs. the collective?

Discuss

  • One of the students in the SyncTV episode mentions the term "groupthink." What does this term denote? What is its significance in relation to this excerpt? How do the characters in this excerpt behave as a group? What do you think causes people to act and think as a group?
  • Continuing on some of the ideas discussed in the video, what are some of the benefits of organizing in groups? What are some of the detriments? Do the benefits of groups outweigh the detriments, or vice versa? Do we have an innate need to organize in groups, or is the desire to conform to the collective a weakness to be overcome?
  • Think about the first two paragraphs of the excerpt. Hurston's figurative language may be difficult to pin down, but what is she saying about dreams and men? About truth and women? Why isn't she more explicit about what she's trying to say?

Prompt 1:

  • Analyze the text for ways in which the community is made into one entity. Do you believe that a community needs to know an individual’s personal business in order for that person to gain acceptance? Use examples from the text as well as examples from your own experiences and observations.

Prompt 2:

  • Analyze the first paragraph about ships at a distance. What do the ships represent? How do you see the meaning of the first paragraph playing itself out in the rest of the text? Evidence for your assertions should come from the text.

Prompt 3:

  • In what ways does this work represent or reflect the Harlem Renaissance?
  • How is this excerpt an example of a modernist novel? Consider the author’s background, the historical and/or social context on the work, the writing style and its modernist characteristics, and modernist themes?

The Norton Anthology of American Literature

1914 – 1945 Overview

http://www.wwnorton.com/college/english/naal7/contents/D/welcome.asp

Between 1914 and 1945, the United States engaged in two world wars and emerged as a modern nation and a major world power. American involvement in World War I was brief (1917–19) and left many yearning for the isolation of previous years. Yet despite some exclusionary immigration measures in the 1920s after a “Red Scare” of suspicion about foreign control over labor union activities, progress toward a more mobile and international perspective seemed unstoppable. A generation of American expatriates enjoyed European life thanks to a newly favorable currency exchange rate. African American soldiers and officers …

A Writer Is BornWilliam Faulkner was perhaps the greatest American novelist of the twentieth century. The first of four sons, born in 1897 to Maud and Murry Falkner, Faulkner himself added the "u" to his name when he first began to publish fiction. It was a way of setting himself apart from his father. The "u" was a kind of personal rebellion, but a small one…..
