Finally, examine your video Note Taker and choose one SPECIFIC problem or issue that you would like to research and study for your capstone project. This must be approved by Mrs. McGladdery before it is official.

3. Doggedly is important to the story because it shows us a vital aspect of Rainsford’s character. We learn from the beginning of the story that he won’t give up, even when things are tough. It means (in context) that someone won’t give up and keeps going even when tired or little chance of success.
Quick Draw: Draw a picture to get another team member to guess the word “doggedly” as it’s used in the sentence “They had come from the right, and doggedly he swam in that direction, swimming with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength.” (Answer Key: use a picture not of a dog, but of someone who won’t give up and keeps trying even when he is tired)
