Assignment:
Part 1 - Dialectical Journal: The term “dialectic” means “the art or practice of arriving at the truth by using conversation involving question and answer.” Think of your dialectical journal as ‘’talking to the text’’, which will help you develop a better understanding of what you have read.

Part 2: In paragraph format, you will address two of the following annotation elements: direct characterization, indirect characterization, theme, tone, or figurative language devices. You will have two paragraphs in total. Your paragraphs will provide the definition of the annotation element example found, a quote that supports the element, and then provide reasoning to explain that it is the element you have identified.
