Reminder: Mark Twain homework assignment is due tomorrow (Thursday, October 3)!

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

This assignment should be 350 words (about one page typed and double-spaced).  You have two options for this assignment, pick one:

  1. Write a dialogue in a specific dialect, as Mark Twain did in "Jumping Frog".  This dialect could be "teen speak", the way you talk to your best friend, or the way a bilingual family would communicate, for example.  This writing option should be mostly dialogue.  
  2. Write about a time when you felt different from the dominant culture, similar to the way the Eastern narrator feels in the Wild West setting of "Jumping Frog".  Incorporate some dialogue.
