a detailed comparison of the two literary pieces, using specific details from
each. Your paper should be 1,000-1,500 words at least with proper use of
quotations and citations. You may decide to limit your focus to
character, plot, setting, symbolism, conflict, point of view, or theme. Use Edgar
Allan Poe. We have read “Premature Death” and “The Masque of the Red Death.”
So, you would select another of Poe’s repertoire that best suits your project’s
direction. Be sure to write only in third person narrative voice.
Please ensure you are properly quoting and citing in MLA format.
Remember if there is a citation on the Works Cited page that source must have
been used in the body of the forum post.
Directions:As I mentioned last week, our first unit will focus on barriers in education. These can come in many forms. In this chapter, “Learning to Read,” Malcolm X reflects on his experience with reading, a big component of education. Please read the article carefully. If it helps, and you have the ability, feel free to print and annotate it. If not, I suggest taking notes as you read. If you are struggling to annotate the text, remember you can review English 020 Connection: Reading Strategies. Step 1: Read the following excerpt from Malcolm X’s The Autobiography of Malcolm X. LearningtoRead.pdfMinimize File PreviewStep 2: Fill out an annotation worksheet for the reading. Blank Annotation Worksheet here. (DOCX)Blank Annotation Worksheet here. (PDF) (You can download it, type in your responses, and save your file or you can print it out, write your answers on the worksheet, and post a scan of the document.)Step 3: Answer the following questions. Your answers should be clear and detailed. Each answer should be a a minimum of 150 words long. These can be attached/written in a separate document or text submission or at the end of your annotation worksheet. How did the process by which Malcolm learned to read differ from the typical way people learn to read?In your own words, what does the author mean when he says. “In fact, up to then, I never had been so truly free in my life” (par. 11)? What is the effect of this statement on the reader?Is reading the most important skill for students in school today? Why or why not? What is equally or more important? What skills should we be prioritizing?How has your reading experience been so far? Have you found pleasure in reading or has it been more of a challenge? What kind of barriers have you encountered as you read?
Do the following:A.1.Read “All About Suicide” by Luisa ValenzuelaWhen we interpret literature, we read it carefully in order to better understand how it works (in other words, how it produces the specific effects that it does) and what it means. Please write a journal entry (min 500 words) in which you respond to the following questions with the overall goal of better understanding how this story works and what it means.Please use specific quotes and examples from the story to support your answers. Remember that the boldfaced concepts are discussed in “Understanding Literature,” (see attached document) so you may want to review that discussion before answering the questions:Most people have to read this story at least twice to make sense of it. How did this experience affect the story’s impact and meaning for you?What facts about plot, character and setting does the story provide? Specifically,oWho is Ismael?oWhere is he?oWhat do you know (or what can you find out) about the cultural/historical context of the story? What does that information add to our understanding of its events?oWhat is his motivation for the shooting?oWhom does he shoot? How do we know?What assumptions does this story challenge about how literary texts work? In particular, you may want to think about assumptions about chronological order and about whom the pronouns “he,” “him,” and “his” refer to.What clues exist about the writer’s attitude toward Ismael and the events of the story? A narrator’s attitude toward the events and characters of a story doesn’t always match the author’s attitude, but in this case it’s probably safe to assume that it does.What personal perspectives affected your understanding of the story? Did they help or hinder your interpretation?What is your overall reading of the story? Try to summarize it in just a sentence or two.2.(Min 400 words)Based on the understanding of “All about Suicide” that you developed in your journal entry, answer the following questions. Again, make sure to use specific quotes and examples from the story to support your points. Our goal is to have a true discussion in which you learn from each other and, perhaps, end up with a slightly different interpretation of the story than the one you started with.What does this story have to say about suicide? Does the ambiguous use of pronouns contribute to its commentary on suicide?The story’s narrator refers to the notion of “get[ting] at the truth.” Ultimately, what is the “truth” that this story conveys?3.(Min 400 words)Post a message that describes an experience with literature that made a difference to your life and responds to the following questions.Would you say it gave you greater insight into the human condition (as claimed in “Understanding Literature”)?Why or why not?4.(Min 400 words) Respond to the following questions: (see attached poems)How is “Love Poem” different from “The Magic of Love”?Why might someone be more likely to consider “Love Poem” literature?Do you? Why or why not?B.1. Read Chapter 7: Plot (see attached document), along with Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour.”Most people would say the climax of “The Story of an Hour” is the moment when Louise sees her husband is still alive and dies. If so, what is the primary conflict, and how does it drive the plot to that climax? Make sure to support and develop your answers with details and quotes from the story.2. Be sure to read Chapter 7: Plot, along with Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour.” Rewrite the ending of the story, and then explain how well your ending does or does not emerge from and resolve the story’s conflict(s).3. Be sure to read Chapter 13: Setting and the excerpt from Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis.Explain your understanding of the time period and geographical location of Persepolis, along with the social/political/economic situations that help create the context for the story. Feel free to do some research if that helps. What overall mood is created, and how does it change?
