Final: Creative Writing as Rhetoric
For your final major grade assignment, you’ll be writing a scene from either an original short story or personal narrative that demonstrates two or more perspectives (positive and negative) on one or more ideas you’ve encountered in Sophie’s World.
Again, your final draft should be comprised of only one scene or “a sequence of continuous action.” It should demonstrate a complete action cycle (exposition, rising action, climax, and resolution) but doesn’t have to be (shouldn’t be) an entire story. It should be more like a miniature story; you’re not trying to squeeze a novel, a five act play, or a feature length film into six to ten pages. You want to describe a tense or difficult situation and work your characters through it. Use very few adjectives and adverbs. Use figurative language: colorful verbs, metaphors, similes, personification, etc. Use dialogue. Let different characters represent different perspectives or points of view.
Sophie’s world is a book we have been reading this is not necessarily about Sophie’s World but an idea you have encountered from Sophie’s world. This is not technically an essay it is more of a story. Please provide me with some guidance on a topic before you dart the paper.
In the paper we are not citing or quoting from Sophie’s World.This paper does not need any sources.
