There will be no questions to answer in Actively Learn. Instead, you will answer the questions below after reading. The due date for this is Thursday because I want you posting your first response by then. You should come back and respond to people on Friday.</p> <p><strong>Directions & Point Breakdown:</strong><br /> <br /> Spell check your post before submitting and keep all posts academic. Though this is social, it is still considered a formal setting.<br /> <br /> Your initial post is worth 2 points. You will be graded on grammar, spelling, and thoughtfulness of response. To make your response thoughtful, use the PEA Method. State your point, provide evidence to support it, and tell us why your evidence proves your point.<br /> <br /> You can earn 2 more points (for a total of 4) for posting 2 more times in the discussion board. The posts can be questions or thoughtful comments.<br /> <br /> Posting "I agree" or a 1 sentence response will not earn your credit. You'll need to explain your thoughts thoroughly.</p> <p><strong>Questions:</strong></p> <p>1. Pick one character out of the following: Tom, Daisy, Nick, Jordan, and Gatsby. Are there any moments when the character you have chosen has made a realization about their circumstances or changed a firmly held opinion? Support your answer with evidence.</p> <p>2. How is the character you have chosen being used in developing the argument Fitzgerald is trying to make?</p> <p>3. Read the attached handout. After reading the handout, do you think any characters are growing in maturity? Does that support or hinder Fitzgerald's argument?</p>
