Finish reading the Coney Island chapter of Colson Whitehead's "The Colossus of New York"
As you read, circle any unfamiliar vocabulary. Then look it up at least two of these terms in a paper dictionary or online, and/or figure out its meaning from the context.
In a short blogpost, identify two of the vocabulary words you looked up. Give the page number they came from, the definition, and what you think the sentence now means.
Then write a paragraph that summarizes this chapter. How would you describe Whitehead's view of Coney Island and what he wants us to understand about this place?
If you have trouble posting you can leave your post as a comment or print it out to turn in. By next week we'll make sure everyone is able to post on the course blog.
