Monday, December 10, 2012
Today we took a short quiz on Candide and then discussed the weekend reading. You can expect to have a short reading quiz each day on the previous night's reading. Tomorrow we will conclude our examination of the life of Voltaire. The outline for your five-paragraph biography of Voltaire will be due on Wednesday.
For tomorrow, read chapters 11 - 16 of Candide and be ready for a short quiz on the reading. You are also to read the short handout entitled Tolerance and come to class prepared to discuss it. Finally you are to select three characters or events from the book and discuss what Volataire is satirizing. Prepare each of these three in a well-written and well-considered paragraph (three paragraphs total). I will collect this work tomorrow.
See you then
