Classroom Activity:

What do you think now?

Think back to our two questions from earlier:

 

  1. Are there differences between what you think is right and what society thinks is right?

  2. Do you follow the rules or do you break the rules?

 

Stop and Jot:

  1. In what ways were the Dashwood sisters limited by their society? How did that affect the choices they could make?

  2. What are the consequences for breaking the rules in a very strict society?

  3. Put yourself in Marianne or Eleanor’s shoes. What would you do if you were in their situation? Would it be worth potential consequences?
