Please read both “The Story of an Hour” and “The Whirligig of Life.” to do this assignment, thank you
To generate ideas for this writing assignment, it is expected that you have a thorough understanding of both “The Story of an Hour” and “The Whirligig of Life.” Your responses on the study guide should form a nice foundation upon which this short paper can be written.
Your assignment is to use your knowledge of the two stories to write a short comparison and contrast essay. Your essay should be two paragraphs. One paragraph will discuss the similarities between the stories, and the other paragraph will discuss the differences between the stories.
Your discussions in both paragraphs should involve irony and theme. You also should connect the themes of the stories to the life and death theme of this unit. Also be aware that your teacher will be looking for you to communicate your ideas effectively, so this will involve your using complex sentences to vary sentence structures and subordinate clauses to vary sentence openings and add detail to sentences.
Once you have completed a rough draft, submit your writing, along with a rubric, to a peer in this course for feedback. Your coursemate should fill in the appropriate box on the rubric with feedback. Use this feedback to make changes to your draft.
When you submit your essay to your teacher for a grade, you should include the following:
- Evidence of prewriting (generating and organizing ideas)
- Evidence of a draft (should contain evidence of revision and editing)
- A final draft
