Choose TWO (2) of the five Winnie-the-Pooh chapters provided in this module to complete the Winnie-the-Pooh Assignment. For each chapter, you’ll need to consider it’s provided Discussion Question. I encourage you to read these questions first as they will guide your reading for the assignment. You do not have to read all five chapters–just choose two! Though, if you have the time, I encourage you to check them all out, especially chapter 7! Summarize the story in 2-3 sentences. Provide enough detail that the reader gets a firm grasp on the plot (or at least concept of the plot), but don’t get too bogged down in specifics (you’ll use those later). Condense your answer to the chapter’s Discussion Question (located here) to a 1-2 sentence thesis statement. Be sure to include the “so what”—how does your answer to the question change the way a reader would think about or understand the chapter, characters, “lesson,” or world. Choose TWO (2) important quotes from the story that reinforce your thesis. In TWO (2) sentences for each, explain how this quote reinforces your thesis. Respond to one of the Daily Key Quotes (listed below) and explain how it does or does not apply to your chapter. Should be about 4-6 sentences. Daily Key Quotes: “Children’s books reflect the world as we would like it to be; they react to the adult world” (Hunt 106). Hunt, Peter. An Introduction to Children’s Literature. Oxford UP, 1994. “The texts seem to emerge from and express an adult nostalgia for childhood as an idyll or Eden, a simpler and better time now over. They seem to conjure this sense of nostalgia in order to block out the knowledge of (or acknowledging of the knowledge of?) the actual complexity and uncertainty of childhood for both children and adults” (Nodelman 79). Nodelman, Perry. The Hidden Adult: Defining Children’s Literature. The John Hopkins UP, 2008. “The only real adult in Pooh’s world is Christopher Robin: a nicely ironic inversion which puts a neat frame round the stories” (Carpenter 203-4). Carpenter, Humprey. Secret Gardens: The Golden Age of Children’s Literature. George Allen & Unwin, 1985. —————————————- Question for Chapter 1: This text has an interesting author-character-reader relationship. The narrator is the author, A. A. Milne, who is telling the story to a very real boy (his son, Christopher Robin Milne) who is also a character in the story, and who also has input on how the story is told. Discuss how this story’s narrator to character/reader relationship is similar or different to other text(s) we have read, and what those similarities or differences may mean. Question for Chapter 7: Question: How would race or racism feature in this chapter? And what is the overall moral/conclusion to that concept?
