Answer the Three Key Questions for Secondary Readings (found in the syllabus) for each reading — one at a time — and pose 2 questions related to the readings for your classmates to engage with in their replies to you.

Your questions may be comprehension questions. For example: “I’m having trouble understanding what Thomas means by the “Angel in the House,” starting on page 81. Can someone help me flesh out that idea?

Or your questions may be prompts for thought. For example: “I am interested in applying the idea of the Deviant Femme to “The Yellow Wallpaper.” What connections do you all see there, if any?”

Yet another example of a question you may pose is: Thomas mainly addresses the way gender works in ghost stories. How do you see gender working in other supernatural stories, such as vampire or zombie stories?

** Keep in mind: The best questions to ask are HOW and WHY questions.
Avoid asking questions that elicit a Yes/No answer. **
