Part II  - Analytical Response

For each chapter, you also need to choose a passage, write out the passage, and analyze the significance of it in a fully developed paragraph.  If your passage is more than 5 lines long in the book, just write the firstline, then use an ellipsis (…) and write the last line.  Be sure to include the page number of each passage.The passage doesn’t have to be long, but you need to have something significant to say about it.  Wieseldoes have the ability to convey great meaning through his tone and his choice of words, so make sure tothink about the words he is using to describe things.  How does your passage contribute to your understanding and appreciation of the passage.  (200 words)See attached rubric.  Please read my comments on your assessed submission so you know how to improveyour assignment.  Also note that this assignment has a different rubric, but the expectations are the same.
