Today, in class, you will be completing a "literary analysis data sheet" for Stevenson's short story "The Body Snatcher." A data sheet is a way to develop your own study guide for a short story, novel, or play. Below, you will find a sample data sheet (of Bronte's Jane Eyre) and a blank one you'll use to complete "The Body Snatcher." This assignment will be drop-boxed at the end of class.

While you're working on that in class, I'll be collecting your Great Expectations and Dracula books -- school copies and donated copies (10 points apiece)
