NEXT STEPS (today)
On your printed copy of the Elders’ speech (364-413), mark three brief passages that move your thinking on the question of which character the play ultimately sides wtih.
In the margins of your typed copy of the speech, explain how each brief passage moves your thinking, however slightly. Movement can happen by sliding you towards or away from a previous thought, or it can happen by deepening an existing thought. In other words, things can move side-to-side or up-and-down.
briefly discuss with one partner, before handing in your annotated printed copy of the speech
