Due next time you come to class AFTER Tuesday: Compose a journal entry on one of the following - or think of your own approach:
1. Re-imagine the first two pages of The Metamorphosis: create a new beginning for the novel in which the facts remain the same but Gregor's reactions and thoughts differ. Use a style of your own choosing.
2. How would life change for you if you were to undergo a total physical transformation? Describe a day in your life in your new form.
3. In what ways do you see the perception of others influencing you? Have the pressures of school and work and family shaped you in ways that you do not necessarily like?
4. Are the expectations of your parents (and of others in your life) fair to you? Explain with some detail.

Read, for A-Thursday, the first chapter of The Metamorphosis. In a double-entry journal, log five extracts from the text -- with their page numbers -- on the left and annotations and reasons for your selections on the right. Have at least five entries from the first chapter.
