Day 5: "Arachne"

This culminating task is an opportunity for students to connect all the close reading they have done across the week. Since the question already informs the students of the theme, the real task for them will be looking at how the theme was developed through the author's word choice. When analyzing the characters' relationship, students must look at what is explicitly stated, as well as what must be inferred. The background knowledge that has been gathered throughout the week will be vital for completing this task correctly.
