It’s time for some TLC with my sources (echoing the voice of Annalee said).  

As I have been getting deeper and deeper into my thinking about my topic I realize I really do need to go back to key passages in the text.  I think I know what I will find, and I certainly know now what I’m looking for, it’s just about going and doing it and finding those needed annotations! 

This week I want to nail down a few, strong, articles about feminism and the empowerment of woman, specifically looking at how their definitions may have changed throughout the years.  I also want to skim through Alice’s and Elsha’s big moments when they stood up for themselves = who were they up against?  How did they emotionally handle the situation?  What were the consequential changes in their character development?  In every sequential experience after that a little more easier to stand up for themselves? (i.e. did their confidence continue to grow in their personal abilities to grow?) 

I know the answer to these questions, I just want to support myself exactly with quotes and annotations for the text.  

I think my highlighter and I are going to be creating a special bond with our books this week.  

Wish me luck! 


  1. Highlighting is always a good idea. Best of luck!

  2. I love your focus on highlighting passages and really digging into your novel. I think I'll definitely be following suit!

  3. Nice, specific focus for what to do next.
