“Well,” said Wemmick, “he’ll give you wine, and good wine. I’ll give you punch, and not bad punch….” September 22, 2010Posted by equinson in : Great Expectations , trackback
Compare and contrast Pip’s experiences at Mr. Wemmick’s and Mr. Jaggers’ homes. How do these experiences contribute to Pip’s education in the ways of the world?
Use specific details from the text to support your opinions. Many of you have done a good job reviewing events in general, but remember: as Mr. Jaggers says, you must have evidence! Moreover, you want to go beyond providing a summary of what happened. You need to provide some analysis. Show what you are thinking!
It might be helpful to know that last year, the average response to the question above was approximately 200 words. Also, you must always follow the rules of standard written English. I recommend that you type your response in Microsoft Word first, and take advantage of spell check, etc., and then cut and paste your comment onto our blog.
Please note! (added at about 9pm) I have replied to some of your comments this evening to offer encouragement and suggestions. It is getting a little late for me now, and I can’t reply to each of you, although I would like to. But for those of you signing on later in the evening, be sure to check out your classmates work and read my replies as a way to guide your own responses. My hope is that this will help all of us write and think more deeply. I have great expectations of all of you!
Additional note! (added at about 10:10pm) I am now signing off, but your comments are MUCH, MUCH better than on previous nights. Good work! Keep it up. I still have great expectations of all of you!
