Identify the literary nonfiction forms that the writers employ within each reading. See Slide 7 in the Module 2’s “Learning Unit” for more help with the literary nonfiction forms. After you identify the literary nonfiction forms, provide some reasoning for how you arrived at those answers. 2. What are this week’s readings trying to teach us? Reveal to us? What are the lessons that we can gain from the readings? Remember: when reading great writing, you are on a quest for meaning AND your are trying to figure out how that meaning is happening!
