Now that we've started drafting the Close Reading essay, you should also choose which reference from the novel you're going to be researching, as we'll begin this research in the library (L-218) on Thursday! Please show up on time for our guest presenter!
The reference can be geographic, literary, historical, a concept, scientific procedure--anything you need to know more about to understand your scene because you're not a Victorian English citizen :-) Over the weekend, write about your research on the blog.
This blog post will be dedicated to your research of your chosen reference from your scene in Dracula. It should include background information to the reference, a summary or description of it, and a brief summary of how it relates to the novel. Your research should come from credible sources found through the library, not Wikipedia!
This post is due by class on Monday, July 21st.
