Write an essay in which you analyze the importance of plot events and characters' actions to the development of a story's 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 the them. In the essay, answer your 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, from the text.

I don't understand this, some things I get like how I'm supposed to be writing the essay and how I'm supposed to choose a story to write about but I don't understand anything else. I'm not looking for answers, I'm just looking for guidance. Can anyone help?

  4. While I'm not going to give you my essay I have some advice. You should give the theme, plot, and important parts. You don't need to put everything, but you can get a good long paragraph about this story. You can also use the picture to give your head the idea of what it was like.
