    FAQs
    Q: I am having trouble with question 7 and I don't want to ask a friend.
    A: Good thinking. So that question is an analysis question. It requires a rethinking of everything he has thought about. Pick a position that can be supported. If you answered on the last set that he thought it was self defense (his case), that was wrong. He never thought that. We were in his head. We thought he could have said that but he did not. So an analysis to be right has to be textually supported. Taking your yourself out of the question and coming up with a thesis idea why he said it and then support your idea with text proof/specifics.

    Q: Should I be writing the answers to both the regular reading quiz questions and analysis questions in the present tense?
    A: Yes, it is a good idea to maintain the present tense even for the more informal reading questions, although I don't harp on it as much as I might in analysis writing.

    Q: I have no idea how to respond to number 5.
    A: Fair enough. It's tricky. First reread both sections. Look at the context. What is happening just before or after.. Meursault didn't kill his father (which is what seems so interesting to others), nor did he "kill" his mother, but the people are interested in his case. Consider what his connection to the mother in his life has to do with this case. And/or, consider how the placement of M's trial with the parricide forces comparison and/or equating them. Another attack angle might be to think about why these generate excitement and interest at all, a parricide and M's murder... Hope this helps. Juxtaposition. Symbolism. Motif.

    Q: I really am not understanding page 90 for number 6. Like I don't understand if the caretaker is or is not on Meursault's side. I have read the page many times and I'm really not sure what to say.
    A: So when you get a question like this, it's allowing you freedom to think -- to think and yet develop a thesis from a careful place. You can attack this type of question by finding a single sentence to use as a thesis (then prove its significance, irony, thematic value). These types of questions focus you to the page (close read) and then call for connecting the dots. I hope this helps. For this question, on this page, you might look for M's revelations, the people's behaviors, M's emotion as, the caretaker's recant, etc. Find a sentence, discern its value to the text, and then talk about it.
