1. Apply elements of analyzing the theme of a short story

See file below for a printer friendly version of this module.
STEP 1: READ:
"Everyday Use" by Alice Walker,
"The Things They Carried" by Tim O’Brien,
“Man to Send Rain” by Leslie Silko,
“To Build a Fire" by Jack London,
“The Necklace" by Guy de Maupassant,
STEP 2: WRITE: Analyze one of the short stories you have read thus far for purpose/theme. (100 pts) Be sure to support your positions with specific, concrete examples from the story. REMEMBER TO INCLUDE TWO DRAFTS ALONG WITH YOUR FINAL. Include a works cited page with your final copy and in-text citations for the lines you’ve quoted from the piece of literature.
An example of a works cited entry for an anthology is located on p. 16 in the text.
CAUTION: Theme is often defined as the truth about life as an author sees it. However, because of your experiences you might discover any number of lessons or truths in a piece of literature. It doesn’t matter what message or lesson you discern as long as you provide EVIDENCE to back up your position. The problem here is often that you might glean one idea and head off into the wild blue yonder without much evidence. Remember you are arguing an interpretation. Make your claim in your introductory paragraph then build your case in the body paragraphs of the essay through examples and quotations from the piece.
For the stories, google the stories to read. you only need to analyze one of them, pick the best you think you can write about.
