Textual Analysis Exercise

Take notes as you do so, asking yourself the following questions in particular: What question or problem is this passage exploring? What are its KEY TERMS? Its themes? Its examples? What broader implications might the ideas contained in the passage have for the text as a whole? Once you have taken thorough notes on each passage, produce AT LEAST TWO substantive paragraphs of at least 250 words each. Each paragraph should consider (and quote from) ONE of the selected passages, ANALYZING the ideas you encountered, while avoiding SUMMARY.
