Week 3 Discussion

Setting and Stage Directions

By the due date assigned, post your response of at least 150-200 words to the Discussion Area. By the end of the week, comment on at least two of your classmates' submissions.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Your instructor will assign a play for the class to read and will post the information as a Week 3 Announcement (i.e., The Glass Menagerie, Trifles, or A Doll’s House).

Prompt: The setting (space, place, and time) forms the backdrop and defines the atmosphere for a play. Settings sometimes symbolically present plot and character issues. For example, a locked door could represent an obstacle within a character’s life. At other times, the setting can limit or permit the characters’ actions.

 Think about the setting in the play you read. Consider these aspects:

Physical space in which the story is placed (confined or open, small or large, limited to one place or not)

Cultural and social landscape in which the story is situated

Time in which the action takes place (time of day, year, era, or century)

Stage directions, including lighting, music, and placement of props

Discuss the setting and stage directions in the play you read. Does the setting produce certain responses from the audience? In what ways does the setting influence the events? Does the setting constrain or liberate the characters? How does the setting reflect the central ideas of the play?

Tips: Remember to provide evidence for your claims in the form of quoted passages from the play. Quotations, paraphrases, and summaries should be cited according to APA rules of style, including in-text and reference citations. Quoted material should not exceed 25% of the document.

Week 4 Discussion

Point of View, Character, and Theme

By the due date assigned, post your response of at least 150-200 words to the Discussion Area. By the end of the week, comment on at least two of your classmates' submissions.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Your instructor will assign 3-5 short stories for the class to read and discuss this week. Check the Week 4 Announcement for a list of the assigned stories. You must choose one of these stories to earn credit on the assignment.

Prompt:

Select one of the stories assigned by your instructor, and develop a response to the following:

Identify the point of view used in the narration of the story.

Provide a specific example from the story to illustrate your argument.

Discuss how this perspective affects your reading and interpretation of the story.

Consider how a different type of narration might alter the effect of the story. 

Point of view refers to the perspective from which the story is narrated.

First person: In first person, the story is told from the perspective of the narrator, using first-person pronouns. (“We are driving off the bridge!” I screamed.)

Second person: This is not commonly used. In second person, the narrator addresses the reader as “you,” which gives the audience the feeling that they are a part of the story. (Example: As you drive off the bridge, you scream, but no one hears you.)

Third person: The story is told using third-person pronouns (“The car is driving off the bridge!” he shouted), and the narrator is either godlike in the ability to see and know everything (third-person omniscient) or not all-knowing with knowledge limited to the perspective of only one character (third-person limited).

Tips

Remember to provide evidence for your claims in the form of quoted passages from the story. Quotations, paraphrases, and summaries should be cited according to APA rules of style, including in-text and reference citations. Quoted material should not exceed 25% of the document.

Week 5 Discussion

Scholarly Article Annotation

By the due date assigned, post your annotated bibliography entry for a scholarly article to the discussion area. By the end of the week, respond to your classmates’ posts with your feedback, questions, and suggestions.

 For this assignment, find a scholarly article on your Week 4 short story in the SUO Library. First, complete the lecture on conducting research in the SUO Library. Next, enter the online library and find one credible, scholarly source examining the short story that was the focus of your Week 4 rough draft. Do not use popular publications, such as summaries from Masterplots or The Introduction to Literary Context, or other media that are not research oriented. Refer to this video provided for this course by South University Online Library Services.

 Post an annotation of your source to the discussion board. Your annotation should include:

A complete APA citation of your scholarly article

A paragraph of summary of the key points presented in your source

A paragraph explaining the source’s quality and how it is relevant to your analytical essay

 Here is an example of an annotated APA entry (not an actual source):

 Smith, A. (2016). Journey into the unknown. American Literature, 22(3), 4-5.

This article compares Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “Young Goodman Brown” and Eudora Welty’s “A Worn Path,” discussing the protagonists’ journeys as a focal point. The article examines these two main characters and their different paths in life. Those paths led Young Goodman Brown and Phoenix Jackson into the forest on very different quests, but both were determined to take these journeys that were emotional, meaningful, and dangerous.

Smith’s article offered a fascinating perspective on the motives and outcomes of these two disparate characters and their life paths that led them into the unknown. I gained a better understanding of my character, Phoenix Jackson, by reading this article and contrasting her with Young Goodman Brown. There are several quotations and ideas I will be able to incorporate into my final draft.

 Examples of Journals with Scholarly Articles:

Studies in Short Fiction

The Explicator

Modern Fiction Studies

Language and Literature

Critique

Modern Language Notes

Nineteenth-Century Fiction

Twentieth-Century Literature

Your replies to classmates should be at least a paragraph in length and made with an eye to expand, clarify, defend, and/or refine their thoughts. Consider asking questions to further meaningful conversation. Participation must be completed by the end of the week to earn credit.

The essay assignment for this week is to compose a paper of at least 750 words in which you offer your interpretation of a literary element poem (such as theme, imagery, symbolism, or characterization) in one of the assigned poems. You may choose any poem from our reading list except for “The Chimney Sweeper.” If you wish, you may base your paper on the analysis you began in this week’s discussion.

 Tips for the Essay

Open your introduction with an engaging opener, such as a question, quote from the poem, or interesting idea. Then, connect to the poem and mention the title and the author. End your introduction with a thesis statement that interprets one literary element of the poem (such as theme, imagery, symbolism, or characterization).

The body paragraphs should support your thesis. Present specific aspects of the poem that help to illustrate your points. Make sure to quote from the poem and analyze specific lines that support your argument.

Include a strong concluding paragraph that summarizes your main points and explains the significance of the thesis.

 APA Reminder

Use APA style for formatting the essay and for source citations. Begin with a title page. Include a running header, and use proper font and spacing. End with a separate references page. Refer to the Week 1 lecture on avoiding plagiarism for an APA essay template and additional resources.

Important Note: Do not do any outside research for this essay. This analysis should be your own insights regarding the poem. If you need help, refer to the sample student paper shared in the lecture on themes, and contact your instructor with questions. Remember that all peer responses must be posted by the end of the week to earn credit.

 Peer Responses

By the end of the week, respond to two peers’ essays, using the following questions:

Does the introduction have an attention-getting opener? Does the introduction give the author and title of the poem? Does the introduction have a thesis statement as its final sentence? Does the thesis offer an interpretation that is clear and specific? What are your suggestions for the introduction and thesis?

Is each body paragraph organized around a key point? Do the paragraphs offer support with direct quotations from the poem? Are the quotes and examples analyzed and explained? Do you disagree with any parts of the analysis? What aspects of the poem are left unexplained?  Do you have any suggestions for improving the body paragraphs?

Does the conclusion summarize the main points? Does it have a strong ending that leaves the reader satisfied? Do you have suggestions for improving the conclusion?
