Each of the three major books that we’ll read has its own take on what virtues are important. Over the course of our reading and discussion, choose one virtue you see upheld in the text and find a way to practice it in your daily life. You may find that as you do this, your understanding of the literary text deepens.
At the end of each book, turn in a brief, one-page (300 word) reflection that identifies the virtue you chose, indicates how it’s described in the literary text, describes how you practiced it, and concludes with what you learned from this about both the virtue and the literary text. You can view sample virtue reflections here.
