Day three questions center around the theme of love and marriage. The questions will focus students' attention on the differences between Lady Bracknell and Jack Worthing's views of marriage. The focus question builds to the culminating question by asking students to examine sections of the text where satire is evident. While these questions do not focus on satire, today's questions will provide them with the foundation to discuss it on day four. Special Materials: Copies of the day three student notes sheet - make sure to print enough for each student Copies of the text for students to highlight and annotate
