The Lottery

Post a One-Paragraph Response.

Respond to this discussion activity by constructing a one-paragraph argument about one of the short stories assigned in the class or about what you have read in Fahrenheit 451 so far. The short story that I choose is Margaret Atwood: “Happy Endings” (pp. 300-303)

  1. Make a claim about how one of the concepts covered in Chapter 5 in the anthology (“Writing About Stories,” pp. 1279-1288) is meaningful in the assigned story or novel. The specific concepts discussed in the chapter that you might focus on include character, point of view, setting, theme, symbolism, and style. Please select one of these and make a claim about how this element works and or what it might mean in the work of fiction (from class) you’ve chosen to focus on in your paragraph. (For example, you might focus on the character of Tessie Hutchinson in “The Lottery” and claim what it is you think she represents in the story, or you might select a particular symbol, like the Hound in Fahrenheit 451, and suggest what you think it represents in the novel.)
  2. Add evidence to support your claim in the form of a quote or specific example from the text to illustrate the point you are making.
  3. Add analysis by explaining how your quote proves or illustrates your claim.

Respond to Two classmates.

After you have constructed and posted your argument, reply to at least two of your classmates’ arguments in thoughtful, respectful replies that either:

  1. Agree with that person and add another quote or example that supports their argument, OR
  2. Disagree with that person by adding another quote that complicates and/or challenges their argument.

( I will attach to you later the thing that you will reply to)
