Seabiscuit: The Cougar and The Cougar Clone




Making connections outside the text is a vital strategy. It helps the reader make concrete applications to the text. During our recent discussion of Seabiscuit I couldn't help but notice this photgraphic connection to Red Pollard. The resemblance is uncanny.

I won't be using this picture for next week's caption contest, so don't add comments in hopes of winning literary treasures.

Youngsters don't understand that books with literary merit can be applied to everyday life. Like Huck Finn, we must listen to our heart. Today I had to battle between my conscience telling me to watch football or listen to my heart and eat lunch with my girlfrield. Folks these authors just don't make this stuff up for entertainment.
