Gr 10 Paragraph due Thursday

Grade 10’s: your paragraph good copies are due by the end of the week (We don’t have school this Friday). You must see me to show me your plan/rough copy prior to Thursday. Remember, I am also available in the library Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

Paragraph topic Choices: Choose One

  1. In a paragraph of 150-200 words, with direct reference to Shirley Jackson’s “The Possibility of Evil”, discuss Miss Stangeworth’s personality.

OR

  1. Discuss how Shirley Jackson effectively uses characterization to reveal Miss Strangeworth’s inner motivations.

 

**Remember: This is a persuasive paragraph. Provide quotations from the story as evidence. Explain how your quotations prove your point (this is your answer to the “So what?”). Have a look at the “Do’s and Don’t’s” of Writing and “Quoting from Novels and Stories” under the writing tab
