“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way….”

Final Assignment :
This is one of those defining moments in American history. Current events have created an environment in which people around the country have decided that something must change. In places as far away as India and Palestine, demonstrators have come out to support those seeking change in the United States. I have attempted to bring alternate information and opinions forward using the media platform that I have access to (terrestrial radio.) There is a lot more work to be done. In light of all of this, I have decided to slightly scale back your final assignment. Your concluding task is as follows:
Narrative is a truly human activity. It is through narrative that we share experiences and gain greater understanding of the world. This semester, we have read a number of narratives that present very different pictures of the world. Select three of the authors that we have read and explain how each expresses a unique vision of the human experience. In the instances in which an author uses short stories or vignettes (Drown and The Woman Warrior) use a single story or vignette. Use examples from the texts to amplify your ideas. You may use outside sources to support your arguments. This final essay should be a minimum of 5 pages. This assignment is due on Saturday, December 20th. Use the conventions of MLA formatting to complete this assignment. No emailed papers will be accepted.
