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:
- 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.
- 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.
