You will have 3-7 choices on what to write this essay about.
Whichever choice you chose you will then rewrite your selection into a well thought out thesis statement.
This thesis statement is the glue for your essay.
Your introduction should introduce the novel and set the stage.
Each body paragraph should focus on ONE element that proves your thesis.
Your conclusion should wrap up and restate.
See General Essay Outline (THIS MUST BE FOLLOWED)
See UPDATED Essay Rubric (READ BEFORE YOU BEGIN!)
HRHS Style Sheet (MLA)
Your selection choices are:
A) Agree or disagree. The plot of your independent novel was seamless.
B) Agree or disagree. The relationship between protagonist and antagonist is perfectly executed.
Thesis example: The relationship between Lee’s protagonist and antagonist is one that draw’s the reader in, develops the plot and leaves the reader satisfied. Then each body paragraph would prove each of these elements listed above.
C) Explain. The plot development of your book.
D) Explain. The theme of your book.
E) Describe the setting and genre–time period, location, etc. Explain how this setting affects the action and characters of the book and its appeal.
F) Discuss what you believe to be the theme of the book. This essay should examine 3 particular areas/events that prove your assumption.
G) Explain the significance of the title in this essay. Authors do not choose a title randomly. Usually the tile is symbolic in some way. Chose three specific point/events where you believe we can find insight into the authors purposeful title.
Quotes are a must. You should have at least 2-3 quotations in each paragraph.
This MUST be posted on your WordPress by noon on Friday. NO LATES ALLOWED
