Friday Writes:  we will spend time each Friday writing.  This writing will mostly be focused on ‘compositions’.  This is an opportunity for you to be creative, reflective and critical with your own writing.

Narrative Writing

Topics:

*The biggest misunderstanding

*The difficult decision

Yesterday, we read the short story “A Teacher’s Rewards”.

Things to look at….

  1.  What are some of the ideas about school life that the author is asking us to consider?
  2. A motif in literature is a recurring image or idea that runs through a piece of writing.  In this story, the motif of ‘hands’ is ever-present.  Look at he story again and note how many times ‘hands’ occurs.
  3. “For once, he finished something.” The story ends there, but Ms. Scofields life may not. What do you think happened to Ms. Scofield?  What are three possible outcomes?
