THIS IS THE PROMT : Ancillary #3

Close Reading

 

Requirements:

3-4 Pages 

Typed in MLA format (12 pt Times New Roman, double-spaced)

Due: 03/26

Context: As the semester progresses, we have begun to explore and discuss ways to approach literature. We have discussed the various components of literature such as tone, diction, symbolism and characterization. We have also discussed the various contextual meanings a piece of literature can possess, such as: gender, class, race, culture, and archetypes. We have also learned to dissect passages through close readings to find meaning and form an impression of the work. 

Prompt:  For Ancillary #3, I want you to pick one passage from the Alexie packets and do a close reading of it in order to identify the text's meaning. Tell the reader why the passage is vital to the text. What made the passage stand out?  Is there any hint of an important context in the passage? I also want you to analyze key language components in the passage. Questions you may want consider, depending on your passage, are which words or phrases struck you as important or odd? Who's telling the story? What kind of diction is used in the passage? Are there any important symbols or imagery in the passage? How do the components help make the passage significant? What themes are present?

Tips:

Provide a brief summary of the text (a paragraph at most).

Choose a passage that will provide enough to discuss (DO not overdo it... keep it to a paragraph or so—do not choose a 2 page passage).

Start broad, then focus. This progression will help with your structure. 

Do not lose sight of the main goal of close reading: to identify the meaning of a text by looking at one specific part.
