Week 3 Love Medicine By Louise Erdrich Book Review Discussion

Welcome to our Book Club!

Every few weeks we will discuss LM. Grab a cup of coffee and imagine us circling together to discuss our class novel.

Step 1 Read Love Medicine

Read Love Medicine pages 1 to 27.

Step 2 Post your response to the discussion board

Respond to the following questions in 300 words or more in the PIE paragraph process and, if it’s relevant, include your own personal experience:

After reading the first two sections, what is your first impression of the book? And, the author?

Is there a main character? What is said about the main character/s?

What kind of story telling process are we seeing?

What is significant about these chapters? What do they it say about the book itself?

Finally, end with a question you have about the novel.

Please use direct quotes to support your ideas and thoughts on the questions presented.

Step 2 Read and respond to other students’ posts.

Read other students’ posts and respond to at least two of them. In addition to any other comments you may have, respond to the following:

  • Respond to the points they made about the novel
  • Respond to the question they had about the novel

Use your personal experience, if it’s relevant, to support or debate other students’ posts. If differences of opinion occur, debate the issues professionally and provide examples to support opinions.

Please respond to at least two (2) classmates.

  1. Initial posts are due by WEDNESDAY at 11:59 PM Pacific Time
  2. Response postings should be completed no later than FRIDAY at 11:59 PM Pacific Time
  3. The key to a good discussion is interaction. Therefore, it is expected that you will log in and participate in the discussions on four (4) separate days per unit.
  4. Additional Prompts are due by SATURDAY at 11:59 PM Pacific Time
  5. Please note that posting all, or the majority, of your replies on the last day of the discussion after 6:00 pm will be considered for point deduction since this greatly decreases the interaction and impact of your posts.
  6. Interaction is the key to a productive and meaningful discussion between you, your peers, and your instructor, so your goal and approach should be meaningful interaction rather than meeting minimum point requirements.
