Assignment for Thursday 9/15

Great job in class today, again. For Thursday, finish The Maltese Falcon and bring in a passage (photocopied or typed and printed out) that features some kind of racial, ethnic, gender, and/or sexual stereotyping. We will mark them up together in class in order to arrive at an understanding of the novel’s argument about the relationship between ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and criminality in the 1920s United States.  You will be able to use your passage for your first response paper, due the following week; we will work on constructing thesis statements in class.
