learning goal: we know what it’s like to _______________

brainstorm ways to complete the statement in today’s learning goal

identify brief passages to use in each of the essay’s three body paragraph (3 per paragraph–i.e., one for each of the paragraph’s eleven parts)

decide which of the basic elements you plan to discuss in the paragraphs (teller’s position, character, setting, plot)

you can use just one throughout the entire essay, if you see story’s using that one in various ways; or you could use some combination of these

since you are comparing three stories against each other, consider using similar elements–a bit like using the same yardstick to measure three pieces of fabric

aim to have one more paragraph at least started, if not finished, by the end of today’s class (deposit that additional paragraph to TURNITIIN when ready; deadline TBA)
