Unformatted text preview: Alqadhi,​ ​Sunpula January​ ​27,​ ​2017 Period​ ​6 Room​ ​He#3 Analyzing​ ​the​ ​Text I​ ​did​ ​not​ ​allow​ ​anyone​ ​to​ ​copy​ ​my​ ​answers.​ ​This​ ​would​ ​have​ ​been​ ​throwing​ ​away​ ​my​ ​integrity. My​ ​integrity​ ​is​ ​more​ ​important. Cite​ ​Text​ ​Evidence Support​ ​your​ ​responses​ ​with​ ​evidence​ ​from​ ​the​ ​selection. 1.​ ​ ​ ​Infer​ ​ ​What​ ​evidence​ ​does​ ​the​ ​author​ ​provide​ ​in​ ​the​ ​opening​ ​sentence​ ​of​ ​the​ ​story​ ​and​ ​the paragraph​ ​that​ ​follows​ ​to​ ​suggest​ ​the​ ​risks​ ​that​ ​the​ ​main​ ​character​ ​will​ ​take​ ​to​ ​escape​ ​slavery? The​ ​evidence​ ​the​ ​author​ ​provides​ ​in​ ​the​ ​opening​ ​sentence​ ​of​ ​the​ ​story​ ​and​ ​the​ ​paragraph​ ​that​ ​follows suggest​ ​the​ ​risks​ ​that​ ​the​ ​main​ ​character​ ​will​ ​take​ ​to​ ​escape​ ​slavery​ ​is​ ​when​ ​he​ ​mentions​ ​for​ ​them to​ ​change​ ​their,​ ​“​ ​…​ ​names​ ​and​ ​appearances​ ​as​ ​much​ ​as​ ​possible​ ​since​ ​Master​ ​Selby​ ​was​ ​sure​ ​to post​ ​your​ ​descriptions.”​ ​It​ ​clearly​ ​shows​ ​the​ ​characters​ ​don’t​ ​want​ ​to​ ​be​ ​caught​ ​easily. 2.​ ​ ​ ​Identify​ ​ ​How​ ​does​ ​the​ ​setting​ ​contribute​ ​to​ ​the​ ​suspense​ ​within​ ​the​ ​text?​ ​Explain,​ ​citing​ ​details that​ ​reveal​ ​the​ ​setting​ ​of​ ​the​ ​story. The​ ​setting​ ​contributes​ ​to​ ​the​ ​suspense​ ​within​ ​the​ ​text​ ​by​ ​giving​ ​me​ ​a​ ​visual​ ​scene​ ​and​ ​idea.​ ​ ​Mr. Johnson’s​ ​details​ ​are​ ​very​ ​specific.​ ​For​ ​example​ ​he​ ​notes,​ ​“​ ​…​ ​returning​ ​to​ ​the​ ​house​ ​and​ ​filling a​ ​sack​ ​with​ ​food,​ ​Master​ ​Selby’s​ ​clothing,​ ​even​ ​some​ ​of​ ​the​ ​mistress’s​ ​jewelry​ ​that the​ ​three​ ​of​ ​you​ ​might​ ​barter,​ ​then​ ​delivered​ ​all​ ​this​ ​to​ ​your​ ​brother​ ​and​ ​Caesar​ ​in​ ​the​ ​barn.”​ ​This detail​ ​gives​ ​me​ ​an​ ​idea​ ​that​ ​the​ ​procedures​ ​are​ ​going​ ​to​ ​be​ ​done​ ​without​ ​being​ ​noticed.​ ​The specific​ ​detail​ ​which​ ​reveals​ ​the​ ​setting​ ​is​ ​“​ ​...returning​ ​to​ ​the​ ​house…​ ​.”​ ​I​ ​can​ ​imagine​ ​myself nervous​ ​and​ ​full​ ​of​ ​emotions​ ​as​ ​I​ ​am​ ​returning​ ​back​ ​to​ ​the​ ​house. 3.​ ​ ​ ​Cite​ ​Evidence​ ​ ​What​ ​clues​ ​in​ ​the​ ​story​ ​hint​ ​at​ ​Freeman’s​ ​identity?​ ​Provide​ ​details from​ ​the​ ​story​ ​in​ ​your​ ​explanation. The​ ​clues​ ​in​ ​the​ ​story​ ​which​ ​hint​ ​at​ ​Freeman’s​ ​identity​ ​are,​ ​ ​“​ ​…​ ​returning​ ​to​ ​the​ ​house​ ​and​ ​filling​ ​a sack​ ​with​ ​food​ ​…​ ​‘I’ll​ ​shave​ ​my​ ​hair​ ​off’​ ​…​ ​and​ ​[changing​ ​into]​ ​buckskin​ ​breeches,​ ​blue stockings,​ ​and​ ​a​ ​checkered,​ ​woolen​ ​shirt.”​ ​These​ ​precise​ ​particulars​ ​add​ ​that​ ​she​ ​is​ ​a​ ​girl transforming​ ​her​ ​appearance​ ​to​ ​man.​ ​She​ ​is​ ​obviously​ ​a​ ​girl​ ​since​ ​she​ ​is​ ​allowed​ ​to​ ​enter​ ​the kitchen​ ​and​ ​she​ ​shaves​ ​her​ ​hair​ ​and​ ​changes​ ​her​ ​clothing​ ​to​ ​completely​ ​hide​ ​her​ ​identity. 4.​ ​ ​ ​Analyze​ ​ ​What​ ​effect​ ​does​ ​the​ ​use​ ​of​ ​the​ ​second-person​ ​point​ ​of​ ​view​ ​have​ ​on​ ​the​ ​scene​ ​in​ ​lines 60–74?​ ​What​ ​idea​ ​is​ ​the​ ​author​ ​able​ ​to​ ​communicate​ ​by​ ​using​ ​this​ ​point​ ​of​ ​view? In​ ​the​ ​second-person​ ​point​ ​of​ ​view,rarely​ ​used,​ ​the​ ​narrator​ ​addresses​ ​the​ ​reader intimately​ ​as​ ​you. The​ ​effect​ ​of​ ​the​ ​use​ ​of​ ​second-person​ ​point​ ​of​ ​view​ ​on​ ​the​ ​scene​ ​in​ ​lines​ ​60–74​ ​is​ ​for​ ​the​ ​readers​ ​to picture​ ​themselves​ ​in​ ​that​ ​situation.​ ​This​ ​helps​ ​the​ ​reader​ ​get​ ​an​ ​idea​ ​on​ ​being​ ​her​ ​shoes​ ​with​ ​the use​ ​of​ ​their​ ​imagination. The​ ​idea​ ​the​ ​author​ ​communicates​ ​by​ ​using​ ​this​ ​point​ ​of​ ​view​ ​is​ ​to​ ​connect​ ​the​ ​reader​ ​with​ ​the​ ​story. This​ ​helps​ ​the​ ​reader​ ​stay​ ​put​ ​and​ ​use​ ​their​ ​imagination. 5.​ ​ ​ ​Analyze​ ​ ​Why​ ​does​ ​the​ ​conversation​ ​between​ ​Caesar​ ​and​ ​Freeman​ ​about​ ​the Declaration​ ​of​ ​Independence​ ​leave​ ​the​ ​reader​ ​with​ ​a​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​ambiguity,​ ​but​ ​hold greater​ ​significance​ ​once​ ​Freeman’s​ ​identity​ ​is​ ​revealed? The​ ​conversation​ ​between​ ​Caesar​ ​and​ ​Freeman​ ​about​ ​the​ ​Declaration​ ​of​ ​Independence​ ​leaves​ ​the reader​ ​with​ ​a​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​ambiguity​ ​because​ ​not​ ​everyone​ ​is​ ​going​ ​to​ ​think​ ​the​ ​same​ ​based​ ​on​ ​each of​ ​their​ ​experiences. The​ ​conversation​ ​holds​ ​greater​ ​significance​ ​once​ ​Freeman’s​ ​identity​ ​is​ ​revealed​ ​so​ ​that​ ​it​ ​can​ ​give​ ​us a​ ​brief​ ​moment​ ​to​ ​look​ ​back​ ​on​ ​what​ ​Freeman​ ​did​ ​to​ ​hide​ ​her​ ​identity. ...
