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.
Can someone please give essay examples?

  4. Rose, "Da Fash" is being impertinent. Here are simple instructions on how to write an essay. You should write the body of your essay (paragraphs 1, 2, and 3) first, then the introduction and the conclusion. Keep in mind the points your assignment wants you to cover (conflict and resolution, the examples) as you re-read the story, take notes, then write.

  6. I disagree. Da Fash is not being impertinent. He has repeated what we tutors say a lot.

  8. Ok, guys, for each of you your answer is gonna be different, so, I choose Raymond's run to write about for example, this link takes you to a short summary of that book, like, the theme, the books actions, basically just rapping the book up for you, *UPDATE* I can't post the link for some reason, but just google, Raymond's Run summary Enotes (your welcome) This should give you some idea of what to do if your honestly confused about the instructions
