Mya Morgan AP Lang Hour 3 Prompt 1 Why does Capote divide the work into sections? What’s the focus of each section? How does this division affect the unfolding of the story?

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
