Write an answer that is based on information found on the page you have been assigned. Try, as best you can, to connect what happens on that page to events that occur either before or after in the story. Use at least one literary term (setting, conflict, plot, irony etc.) in your answer. Quote the story at least once, but no more than 20 words, maximum, for all quotes. Identify the page number, please, as a heading before your paragraph. See my model answer for more ideas on what to do.
Write between 150 and 200 words. Bring your word processed work to class on Wednesday. Remember to do five annotations (on different pages than the one you were assigned) and bring them to class as well.
Link to the story online for easier cut and paste quoting.

Answer based on ONE of the topic choices from Page 2 of your worksheet. Please identify which question you are answering first, before your paragraph. A good answer will range from 150 to 200 words and use one or two short quotations. It will be easier if you relate your answer to the overall "gist" of the story (how the element you discuss fits within the story in other words).
Also, remember to annotate your story before coming to class next Wednesday. Bring your sheet of annotations and word-processed answer to class. Thank you!

What is your personal reaction to what you learned about writing from your peers and from William Zinsser? Did anything surprise or puzzle you? Do you strongly agree or disagree with any suggestion? Explain why. Answer in a paragraph. Write no fewer than 150 words and no more than 200.
Due in time for Wednesday's class. Bring a copy, word processed and double spaced, please.
