Hello incoming Titans! Mrs. N. told me that she’d like to have you answer these questions. You may note that there are other blog entries on “The Alchemist” (one by me and one by a student) and “The Secret Life of Bees.” A few of you have already commented there, and that’s great. If you’d like to see the discussion on either book, just search the title and you’ll find the entry. However, now, Mrs. N. would like to have you compare the two books and have a discussion on that. So I’m making a separate blog entry here for that discussion. Your comments should occur in reverse order, with the last comment showing first.
Here are the questions:
After reading The Alchemist and The Secret Life of Bees, respond to the following question:
The two novels are both about pursuing a spiritual quest that was given to the character (s)by the author. Compare OR Contrast the two novels’ spiritual quest in your opinion.
Once you have posted your original response, you will need to respond to One opinion that compares and One opinion that contrasts the views you may or may not have shared.
Be sure to highlight and copy all your responses onto a Word document, print it and staple to your packet. I will be reading and grading all entries so this will be backup in case I missed one.
