POST 1 & 2: In separate 250 word posts, respond to two of the following:
A) How is Dave in â€œThe Man Who Was Almost A Manâ€ not a man? Is there one central force preventing him from becoming a man? How does he go about overcoming this? Is it even possible for him to do so?
B)Consider the three Langston Hughes poems assigned. What are the major similarities in terms of theme in these poems? Is there a central idea that Hughes seems to be getting at in these poems?
C)How does Hughes use dialect and the first person point of view to develop a singular persona that expresses a broader comment on general experiences about race, class, economic structures and their influence?
POST 3 & 4: Respond to at least two other student posts.
