example of a strong response
Example of a Strong Response

This passageiswhen Tita goes to congratulate Pedro and her sister after the marriage ceremony. When she gives Pedro a hug, he holds her tight and whispers that in her ear. It make Tita full of joy but upset Mama Elena. She tells Tita she is no fool after that and is not allowed around Pedro after the wedding.

strong response cont d
Strong Response (Cont’d)

The way Pedro holds Titamakes her feel good and happy again. It does not say how Rosaurafeels, but everyone else in the room notices he whispered in her ear. This shows how strict Mama Elena is, she was very upset about Pedro telling her anything and says she has played those games before and for Tita not to lie to her about what Pedro said. If Mama Elena has played those games before, does it

mean that she was once in love with someone else other than her father or maybe they had the same struggles as Tita and Pedro that Mama Elena is just trying to protect her from.

This passage shows that Tita’s view on this marriage could change. When Pedro tells her the real reason why he accepts the hand in marriage, it does not upset Tita. Maybe she could forgive Pedro and be happy with him marrying her sister as long as they could still be around each other.

Response (cont’d)
  • Maybe Pedro’s feeling will change, and he will fall in love with Rosaura and forget about Tita and her love.
revising responses
Revising Responses
  • You may revise the response you wrote in chapters 1-4.
  • I will return chapters 3 & 4 (hopefully) Wednesday.
  • Revisions are due next Wednesday, March 5. Attach the old journal responses with the new ones. You may do any or all of chapters 1-4.
things to revise for
Things to revise for:
  • Write in the present tense. It’s a writing convention used to talk about literature and reading passages. It’s called the literary present.
  • When Pedro asked asks for Tita’s hand in marriage, Mama Elena refused refuse.
revise for the following
Revise for the following:
  • Avoid using “you”:

In formal writing, especially about literature, avoid it.

You get the feeling that Mama Elena is a tyrant.

  • Avoid “I” or “me.”

It seems to me that Pedro is selfish.

how i grade the response journals
How I grade the response journals:
  • Parts 1 & 2 were 5 points each.
  • Part 3 was 10 points.
  • If you wrote two paragraphs, and the first one explains the context and the second one explains the significance, you received 7 out of 10 when you wrote only a minimum of 5 sentences.

  • If you went beyond that, you received a higher grade.
  • If you wrote only five sentences, but didn’t analyze in the second paragraph or explain the context in the first paragraph, you received a score below 7.

  • If you need to send an important text or make a phone call, please let me know before class and do it outside. Let me know if you are going outside, and keep it short. If this privilege is abused, you will receive an absence for the day.
  • Refrain from using MP3 players, Bluetooth or other similar electronic devices.

If you violate one of the rules above, you will be given a verbal warning. If it happens again, you will be given an absence for the day.

how lab assignments work
How Lab Assignments Work

1. The lab is a significant component of this course. You will attend the computer lab one hour weekly for demonstrations and independent work. This extended practice enables you to deepen your understanding of the course content.  

2. Check the lab page of our course website, entitled “Lab Activities,” for detailed information. I will post articles, web links, discussion board assignments, samples and online exercises to help you complete your work.

due dates
Due Dates

3. If you cannot finish your lab work during class time, you will need to complete on your own time. It is due at 8:15 p.m. on the following Monday. For example, if a lab assignment is given on Monday, March 5, then it is due on Monday, March 12, at 8:15 p.m. 

4. If you are absent, lab assignments are still due. To receive full credit, complete the lab assignment at home by 8:15 p.m. one week after it is assigned. For example, if you are absent on Monday, March 5, you must turn in the work that you missed by Monday, March 12, at 8:15 p.m. 

5. If you miss a lab assignment completely, you will need to wait until May 30. Please see the section below entitled “Make-Up Day for Weekly Assignments” for more details.
