After you read it, answer the following questions. NOTE: Do not access any outside sources to answer these questions — just Week 4’s Lecture’s notes, the story itself, and your brain. Thank you.

These questions are based on Week 4’s Lecture Notes information.

If you use a direct quote from the story in any of these questions, put an MLA in-text citation after it: “Quote” (Gilman). If you use a direct quote from Week 4’s Lecture Notes, please put the MLA in-text citation in this way after the quote finishes: “Quote” (Delvino).
