For this discussion post, you will practice categorizing direct quotes by themes and different social issues presented in those quotes. Please read “On Being a Cripple” in 50 Essays. Choose four direct quotes from the text. Use correct MLA citations to format those quotes. For each quote, state what idea is presented in the quote. You do not have to fully interpret or analyze the quotes. You must explain how each quote presents a specific theme/social issue.
Please respond to TWO peers and state if you are able to see the same ideas presented in the quotes. Answer why or why not.
This is a crucial part of engaging in the work of synthesis. Because you must establish connections between multiple texts, you must first identify universal issues/themes found before analyzing the specific text in each quote.
