I have to write a prose satire aimed at changing the behavior or attitude of my audience.
My example was senioritis, and that the senior year shouldn't be stressful...
I'd like something that would be an easy "teenaged" topic.
~taking the SAT or ACT is a snap; no need to worry
~applying to colleges/universities is very easy; waiting until the last minute is OK.
~money for college/university will fall out of the sky; no need to apply for financial aid
~senior year should just be full of fun; no need to take rigorous courses, no matter what the college/university application folks are looking for; they'll understand
LOL.... I could write a book on "senioritis"
I used a little satire when told that they didn't have to learn anything that year... I told them that I probably could find a couple of things for them to do... Then assigned them a book to have read in the next two weeks... I think it had about 500 pages. We worked on "satire" a lot that year. <G>
Thanks! Those are great!
