&Reading Response # 3 Chapter(s): Mengestu, Chapters 3 & 4
DIRECTIONS: (Do not delete these directions!) After completing the entire reading for the day, answer the first two questions below in fully developed paragraphs (10-12 sentences in each paragraph). Answer thoroughly and in complete sentences. Mind your grammar Κ! This is a formal assignment, so proof read and edit carefully. I want sophisticated answers that demonstrate you have not only done the reading, but also have given some real thought to the questions Κ! It also is a requirement that you integrate quotes from the reading to strengthen your discussion of each question. Failure to do so will result in your losing five (5) points! (Do not use block quotes). Be sure to include the page number of your integrated quotes so I know where in the reading to find them. Be sure to save your reading response on your own computer, upload your assignment as a Single File Word Document to Catalyst, and then print out a hard copy to hand in at the beginning of class on the due date.

How does the episode give us more insight into the overall themes in the novel? (Do not discuss anything that you have already discussed in question #1. Choose a different event!)
