Day 2: Hospital Sketches, Chapter III: "A Day"

This day focuses students’ look at the second major theme, gender, on the word and sentence level and asks students to analyze the impact of specific decisions. Students are directed to specific rich passages in the text. Because Alcott is making a sophisticated point about the role of women in the hospital, students are given the take-away in the question. Special Materials: Students should add to their copy of "Hospital Sketches, Chapter III: A Day." Students should also have a copy of the guided notes sheet.
