Write an essay in which you analyze the importance of plot events and characters’ actions to the development of a story’s theme. Review and evaluate a story from the unit that has a clearly identifiable theme. You might choose “Raymond’s Run” by Toni Cade Bambara, “The Story-Teller” by Saki, “The Finish of Patsy Barnes” by Paul Laurence Dunbar, or “The Drummer Boy of Shiloh” by Ray Bradbury. Be sure to identify the story and write a clear statement of its theme. In your essay, answer the following question: How do various elements of the story—conflict and resolution, characters’ dialogue and behavior—contribute to the story’s theme? Support your ideas with references to the text.

  1. There's usually more than one theme in a book or play. https://literarydevices.net/theme/

    Let us know what you decide.

    (Why are you typing each word with a capital letter? That's not needed in normal English sentences, and should not appear in any essay or paper you write.)

  2. What is the story about? Does Squeaky decide that winning is more important than anyone else, that it's all about herself and she doesn't care about anyone else? Or does she realize something different? That's the theme, if you can figure it out.

  3. And, please learn the difference between "their", "they're", and "there". The words sound the same, but they are not the same. "Their" is the possessive of "they", as in "The Smiths live in their own house," or "Marilyn and Rose love their puppy." "They're" is a contraction of "they are". "They are the Smith family from across the street." "They're a large family." "There" refers to a place, as in "There are the mittens I thought I'd lost!" "The drug store is over there someplace."
