1. Persuasive paragraphs returned (marked by Ms. Shin). Expository rough drafts (marked by gr. 12) returned.
2. Take content from Jacob as Dynamic Character part 1 (focusing on Jacob's younger years) and part 2 (focusing on his later years) for a cohesive expository essay.
How does Jacob evolve throughout his life? What sort of traits does he develop through his adversities?
3. Look at Jacob's life in terms of phases:
- Phase 1: Jacob lives in his father's land. He leads a rather domestic life and he is unconditionally obedient to his mother.
- Phase 2: Jacob is compelled to leave his father's land. He goes to Haran (at the advice of his mother) and he falls in love with Rachel. He meets his match in cunning in Laban. He works 14 years for his beloved Rachel and he fathers many children with both his wives.
- Phase 3: Jacob leaves Haran. He is reunited with his brother Esau and he makes his peace with him. Jacob is renamed Israel and established as the third Patriarch.
HW: ROUGH draft of this expository (about Jacob's development throughout his entire life).
