For this assignment, respond to one of the questions provided. I’m looking for your grasp of the reading and your ability to think critically. In your response, be sure to: 1) support your main point(s) with strong evidence from the story; 2) use careful reasoning to explain how that evidence relates to the main point(s) of your interpretation; 3) use your own words.

Also, remember to not merely summarize the text; think critically; and 4) don’t use “you” or “your” in your response. For information on why “you” and “your” are inappropriate in academic writing, see the FAQs.
