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.
