2015 Spring Final

Final format-
You will be required to make thematic comparisons to another text (short story or poem). Your overall task is to prove how two texts are thematically similar, and you are to perform close reading and in depth analysis of your evidence (from both texts) to prove these similarities. The steps in writing a complete essay are broken down within the final, all of which we’ve practiced throughout the semester.
You will be allowed to use your book and CB notes on the final.


Honors class: Your final will consist of the supplemental text and The Pianist.
