Week 13–Finishing Uncle Tom’s Cabin

This week we are going to FINISH Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Woo! Hoo!!! That is a crazy accomplishment!!! So make sure you get it done!!! It is the last week of school before our Christmas break. Again, make sure you finish the entire book by Friday. Do not procrastinate. You are reading one of the most important American novels ever written. You are almost now in a club of select educated scholars and important people. When you finish the book, drink a strong cup of coffee, cross your legs, and pat yourself on the back like an educated American.

So here we go! 

Reading:

Finish Uncle Tom’s Cabin–chapter 34-45 (pg. 303-379)

If you would like to follow along with the audio book, here are the links 🙂

For Chapters 34-37 (skip about an hour and 13 minutes into this video)–Part 7

For Chapters 38-45 —Part 8

Total audiobook reading time is about 3 hours and 45 minutes.


Assignments:

You have four new journals this week

Continue with your “Brandi Notes” in the book 🙂

I will check them on Friday.

Also, I need to talk to Mrs. Kim about what we are doing this Friday. She will send out an email and I will update this blog when we firm up what our plans our. So please check back here later on this week.

Oh, and drink your coffee!!!

And one last thing. I shared this song with Girls Discipleship tonight . . .

I was listening to it and thinking about how chapter 33 ended with Tom saying that Legree didn’t own his soul–that climactic moment when he realizes that no matter what happens to him, Christ has already set him free! So please take a listen to this song. And remember that no matter what happens to you. No one can own your soul, because Christ has already bought it, and paid for it, and broken all of our chains.

“No! No! my soul an’t yours, Mas’r! You haven’t bought it,–ye can’t buy it! It’s been bought and paid for, by one that is able to keep it;–no matter, no matter, you can’t harm me!” (Stowe 303).

    1. It isn’t just you guys that procrastinate! LOL. I tend to wait until Thursday night to read it too!!! No wonder I have been really tired the last few weeks in class. This week my sleepiness made me excessively giggly.

    1. Just keep underlining the lines that stick out to you as important, especially ones that have to do with Christianity, the Bible, Christlike character, Duty, Wickedness, Slavery, and Freedom. Keep listing page numbers in the back that have to do with these themes. 🙂

  1. Same here ^^
    Mrs. Brandi, if your goal was to make me mentally cry…you succeeded 😭😭 if none of you cried (at least mentally like me) then I’m sorry but you aren’t human. The 2nd to last chapter made me so sad!
