Find Chapters 5, 6, 7 here: In the Time of the Butterflies Online
By Thursday, January 16, you should choose one quote that stands out to you from the text, and then compose AT LEAST 2 paragraphs (you may post longer responses) that speak to the significance of your quote as well as these chapters. In addition, you should identify connections you can make. Here are some think questions to get you started. You should address significance, connection and supposition somewhere in your answer, but you also may branch off into other things that speak to you about these two chapters. That was a lot of writing so I'm going to type something happy here before putting more text. I LOVE YOU GUYS! I'M SO EXCITED TO BE READING THIS WITH YOU!
OR you may complete this packet for 5, 6, 7.
By Saturday, January 18, you should respond to at least two other people's writing, keeping significance and connection in mind as well.
