2. Write BQ introduction (3-5 pp. typed, 10 citations) and embed on blog by Sunday (1/29) night
3. Post literature analysis as soon as you're finished (officially due Tue, 1/31)
4. Create a post for your blog that explains the title of the Dickens book you selected


  1. I'm a little confused as to item number 4 on the homework. Are we supposed to explain why the book is titled, with the name that it has?

  2. Is it 3 to 5 paragraphs or pages?

    1. i asked people and they said it was pages. -yunjoo

    2. Yunjoo's people are correct: pages.

  3. So, it's really late notice, but I've been sitting here with my dad trying up upload the essay intro to docstoc but it won't let us... My Mac uses "Pages" is there only a certain type of application that it allows you to upload from?

    1. Good to know that about pages... did you go to docstoc "help" or "FAQ"? If all else fails you can either: a) save as .pdf (I know docstoc will take that), or 2) email to a friend, ask them to save in Word and upload from a flash drive or different computer.
