Be sure to include ALL pages of this project (including the directions and the assignment) when you send the project to your teacher for grading. Don’t forget to put your name and I.D. number at the top of this page!

This project consists of two parts, each worth 50 points for a total of 100 points. Note that grammar, spelling, and proper citation of sources are important for this project. Refer to the appendix in this course for guidelines on writing conventions.

Part A

This portion of the assignment will involve examining a piece of literature more closely and looking at how the author’s life and beliefs are reflected in the writing. Writers write about what they know and observe. The time and place in which an author lives influences the works that he or she creates. Many authors intentionally include details about the time and place in which they lived as a form of social commentary.

First, you will select a piece of literature that you have read in either Unit 2 or Unit 3. Then, you will examine how the writer is reflected through that piece of writing. How does the author communicate his or her view of the world through the piece of writing? Look at how the piece of writing portrays the setting, the characters, and the theme. Examine the writing style. Look for a stance on a topic based on the time and place in which the author lived and compare it to where and when the story is set. Observe how the author’s own experiences are reflected in the writing. Decide whether or not the writer is using the story as a vehicle for social commentary. If so, what is the author’s stance on the social issues of the time? How is this idea communicated to the reader?

1.
Research the time period in which the story is set to learn more about the historical background and why it is important. Use the author information in the textbook and lessons as a place to start. How is the time period reflected in the story?

2.
Review the information provided about the author in the textbook and lessons. Go beyond this information to learn more about the particular author that you have selected. What did you learn about the background of the author that is reflected in his or her writing?

3.
Examine the characters, setting, plot, and theme of the story, and draw some conclusions about how the story reflects the information about the author’s purpose and background. Find specific evidence from the story to support your ideas. What evidence in the story did you find that shows the author’s purpose and background?

4.
Write a well-developed essay that analyzes how the author’s purpose and background are reflected in the story. A brief summary of the story will be part of the essay. However, the essay is to be an analysis of the author’s background and purpose, not just a summary of the story. Be sure that all of the questions above are addressed in your essay.

Follow these guidelines for organizing your essay:

Thesis Statement

Develop a thesis statement, which will be the basis for your essay. The thesis statement will answer these questions:
· What is the subject of my essay?

· What is my opinion on this subject?
Your thesis statement must include:

· the name of the author

· the name of the work about which you are writing
· a statement that is a clear response to the questions being asked

Introduction

The introduction to your essay will include your thesis statement, an attention getter or a hook to get the reader interested in the topic, and general background information necessary to inform the reader and provide a context for the remainder of the paper.

Main Body

Your essay must include information about the author’s background, the time period, and specific evidence from the story to prove the thesis and answer the questions.

· Ensure each point is given a new paragraph.

· Write a well-developed topic sentence for each body paragraph that covers one topic and supports the thesis.

· Explain the topic and use evidence from the text or your outside sources to support the topic.

· Write a concluding sentence to finalize your discussion of that topic.

· Use transitional words or phrases at the start of each paragraph and within the paragraph that will guide the reader through the paper and show how each topic relates to the previous paragraph or topic. A few examples of transitional words are “however,” “in addition,” “for this reason,” “nevertheless,” and “moreover.”

Conclusion

The concluding paragraph for your essay should wrap up and draw the essay to a close. You should restate your main points in a new and refreshing way. Then, you should draw the essay to a graceful conclusion by finalizing your thoughts on the topic.

Review

My Thesis:

· Does it directly respond to the assigned topic?

· Is it an opinionated statement?

· Do I introduce the writer and the title of the piece of writing?

· Does my paper cover everything that I promised I would in my thesis? (If not, revise the thesis or develop the body portion of the essay.)

My Topic Sentences:

· Are each of my topic sentences broad topic statements?

· Does each statement relate directly to the thesis?

My Evidence:

· Do I have enough evidence to prove each of my topic sentences?

· Is my evidence specific?

· Have I cited direct quotations? Be sure to create in-text citations as well as a bibliography page for your sources. Use MLA formatting for these citations. (Review the formatting page in the appendix of this course.)
My Conclusion:

· Have I restated my overall point and made a final statement about what my essay shows?

Editing and Proofreading

Print a hard copy of your draft. Read it aloud and check for the following:

· no skipped words

· complete sentences

· correct spelling

· correct words (for example “there” or “their”)

· appropriate use of apostrophes

There was only one word to describe Eclipse Harper Price and that word was brave. Growing up without her parents since the tender age of 11 and after that living with an aunt who was a drug addict wasn’t easy. She didn’t get to experience all the things that a child and a normal teenager should experience. Now at the age of 21, Eclipse is still trying to find herself and continue living her life the best she could.

One day, while Eclipse was going back to her apartment after spending nearly 7 hours working at the restaurant where she works as a waitress. she was in a hurry to back to her apartment because she had to cook dinner for her aunt. She was already really late and because of that she did not take the usual route she takes and decided to take a shortcut. While she was walking, she heard a weird noise but she did not have time to really think about what it was, so she continued walking. Not too long after, she heard the same noise but this time it was much stronger. She couldn’t contain herself anymore and like they say, ‘curiosity kills the cat’. She went to the place where she heard the noise and it happened to be inside a dark alley just behind a building. You would think that she came back to her senses and left before she sees something she is not supposed to see or before someone sees and assaults her. But she really wanted to see what was happening. She walked through the dark alley but she couldn’t really see anything since it was dark but the noises were stronger and she could clearly hear that it was woman crying and pleading to whom she assumed were her assaulters to let her go. She could have left then and there because they could see her and also assault her too and also it was not really her problem. She couldn’t call the police because her phone’s battery had died a long time ago and who knows by the time the police arrives what those guys could do to her, so she decided that she was going to help her. She made some noise and the men stopped what there were doing. They started whispering among themselves and they asked who was there. Eclipse stayed quiet so one of them decided to come and look for the source of the noise. She took a big piece of wood that was on the floor near her feet. When the man was near her, she hit him on the head with the piece of wood as hard as she could and the man collapsed on the flour. The other men that were there started calling the man whose name was James because he was taking too much time. When he did not answer, both of the men that were left with the girl walked toward where Eclipse was. She knew that she wouldn’t be able take them both by myself. So, when they arrive; she grabbed both of their foot, they lost their balance and fell to the ground. She took that opportunity to hit them with the piece of wood. When she saw that they were not moving anymore she took that opportunity to go where the girl was still laying on the ground crying. She realized that she intervened before they could do what she knew they were going to do to her. She helped the girl stand up and she told her that they should run before the men regain consciousness. They started walking really fast because the girl couldn’t run since her left leg was injured. Because it was really late during the night, there was no one on the road. But then they heard those men shout at them and they knew that they were now following them. They hid behind a big car until they didn’t hear anymore noises. Eclipse asked the girl for her name and the girl told her that her name was Maggie. She then asked Maggie if she had her phone and she said yes. She took Maggie’s phone and called 991. She told them where they were after reading the name of the small restaurant that was in front of them. She told Maggie that they were going to wait for the police to come and rescue them. But then Eclipse had an idea, she wanted for the police to arrest the men that assaulted Maggie so that they could be punished for their act and she didn’t want them to try and assault someone else. She told Maggie about her plan but she was against it. Maggie didn’t want anything bad to happen to Eclipse but the girl had already made her decision. She told Maggie to stay hidden behind the car and she left to the direction were she last saw the men. Luckily, she found them near that place still looking for them. She threw a rock on one of them and his head snap to her direction. Before he could anything, Eclipse started running and the men ran after her. They started screaming at her to stop and they told her that she was going to regret what she did to them. She arrived at the place where she left Maggie and she stopped running. The man arrived short after and when they saw them, they started smirking, but their smirks quickly dropped when they heard the police’ cars. They were told to put their hands up, they obeyed and after they were handcuffed. The ambulance came and took Maggie in charge while Eclipse started explaining what happened to the officers. The police congratulated Eclipse because of her act of bravery. After talking to the officers, she went to the hospital with Maggie. Maggie’s parents arrived at the hospital and ask to see Eclipse. They thanked her and about what she did for their daughter. Eclipse then learned that Maggie’s father was the mayor of the town and that her mother was the owner of the biggest university in town. They told Eclipse that they were going to pay off all her debts and help her aunt with her drug addiction. Maggie’s mother also offered her a scholarship in her university and a new job. Eclipse started crying and she told them that she could not accept all that since it was too much. After Maggie begged her to accept everything that her parents were offering her, she finally accepted. Since that fateful night, Eclipse and Maggie became the best of friends and started going to the same university. The men that wanted to assault them were charged with 40 years in prison since it was revealed that they were also drug dealers that the police had wanted to catch for a long time now but did not have any evidence against. But because of Eclipse againstthey succeeded. Eclipse was so happy and for the first time in her life she felt that she had accomplished something. She felt like a true hero.
