10H : 9/8/14

Today you are going to generate your own thesis which you are going to prove in a focused paragraph.

The thesis must address how – or if – the two pictures from our 9/3 & 9/4 Class Notebook posts reflect a sense of mood in the short story.

Your paragraph should explicitly discuss the shifting mood of selected moments in the story.

The guidelines are vague because I want your thesis to be original.

You can go in countless directions with this assignment.

Keep in mind that a thesis is something that you can either prove or disprove; it is not simply a summary of the plot.  Rather, it is a statement that provides original insight into the plot and the characters.

Your paragraphs will be checked tomorrow for a homework grade.
