Before you begin writing your discussion post, review the Module 1 Writer’s Workshop, “Learning to Write a One-Paragraph Argument About Literature.”

Respond to this discussion activity by constructing a one-paragraph argument about point of view or theme in one of this module’s four assigned short stories.

  1. Make a claim about how point of view or theme is significant in one of this module’s five assigned short stories. Alternatively, you may discuss the relationship between two of these elements in one of the assigned short stories.
  2. Add evidence to support your claim in the form of a quote from the story to illustrate the point you are making.
  3. Add analysis by explaining how your quote proves or illustrates your claim.

New Discussion Requirement

Until this point, MLA format parenthetical documentation has not been a requirement for your discussion posts, but beginning with this module, it will be part of your grade. Every quotation or textual reference should have the author’s last name and page number, so your classmates and instructor can easily find that item.

Respond to Two Classmates

To earn full credit for this assignment, you must meet all criteria.

After you have constructed and posted your argument, reply to at least two of your classmates’ arguments by either:

  1. Agreeing with that person and adding another quote or example that supports his/her argument, or
  2. Disagreeing and adding another quote that undermines his/her argument.
