Complete, but do not submit, a full draft of an “11-sentence” paragraph on the topic of the more significant self-discovery. For guidance, use the “11-sentence” paragraph instructions and the content writing rubric, both found in the Raw Materials page of this blog.
Given the three-part nature of the “11-sentence” paragraph, I recommend you devote two of the essay’s parts to the character who makes the more significant self-discovery and one to the character from the other story. You decide how best to arrange these three parts. For example, you can use a 2-1, 1-2 or a 1a-1b-1a sequence. Another option, which presents unique challenges, is to include quotations or examples from each story in all three parts.
