The Wine Cask

Work Time

When directed, join a partner. First, read the passage from the novel independently, annotating as you read. Then have a “silent conversation” by sharing your written comments with your partner.

  • Following your teacher’s direction, pick out sections of the passage that you find powerful, noting interesting metaphors and similes.
  • Mark figures of speech (metaphors, similes, and personification) that seem important and add your comments and reactions.
  • Swap with your partner, and read each other’s comments.
  • Respond to your partner’s comments and dig more deeply into the text, noting observations.
