We are going to use a variation of Literature Circles combined with Cognitive Design. You will
have a job, and that job will change each time your group meets. There will be six jobs and 5-6
people per group. These are large groups and big jobs, so make sure you pull your weight! We
will meet 7 times, and the chunks to be discussed are listed below.

JOBS:
   1. Political Vocabulary: research the political terms used and explain them or provide
      images if necessary
   2. Humour: Examine how is humour structured and created, provide examples
   3. Moderator: Prepare five key questions to keep the conversation going, make the
      summary notes
   4. Character Introduction, Growth and Change: present new characters, identify
      character changes as they occur, predict possible outcomes/conflicts
   5. Language, Symbols & Images: Identify any symbolic content; find visual 2-3 images as
      appropriate for chapter, find 3-5 literary devices per chapter
   6. Narrative POV and allusions: Identify any oddities of the POV and provide
      explanations for the non-political allusions

You are expected to come to class with notes for your topic of approximately 1-2 pages.
Your group will submit the summary rough notes about what was discussed at the end
of the class. This can be on chart paper or lined paper. Individual evaluation will be
based on preparation, participation, enthusiasm, and group allocated marks.
