Select ONE of the following prompts. Be sure to follow the directions.
Prompt 1: Short Story
Create a short story using all you have learned so far in the unit. Include archetypes, literary elements, figurative language, and academic vocabulary words you learned in the course to shape your story. What is the setting, plot, characters, etc. How will you use figurative language such as metaphor and alliteration? What type of characters will you include? Ensure that you also demonstrate a clear point-of-view such as omniscient, limited omniscient, third-person, narrative, or first person, within your story.
Your short story should include a title, and be a minimum of 1 page and a maximum of 5 pages in length. Please submit a typed paper, using Times New Roman, 12 pt. font, and double-spaced lines (Please space your lines).
Prompt 2: Literary Service Announcement (LSA) Assignment
You have had a relationship with archetypes since a young age—Carl Jung might argue this is true since your conception. In fact, many children’s cartoons use archetypes as part of their humor (think of Tweedy Bird and Sylvester, Tom and Jerry, or The Simpsons). Throughout this unit, you have identified common archetypes across ancient and modern texts and visuals.
Choose the ONE archetype you most relate to, recognize, and/or like.
Create a public service announcement that educates your audience on the role of the archetype as well as persuades them that your archetype is one of the greatest—most common, most powerful, most dynamic (changes the most), most unique, etc.
The guidelines for the LSA are below.
I look forward to your LSA! Be as creative as you want!
In your LSA you should…
inform the reader of the common uses of the archetype.
include content that is developed and shows mature thought.
ensure ideas are organized strategically.
ensure grammar and spelling are polished.
ensure word choice is purposeful.
ensure rhetoric is used effectively.
ensure presentation is geared towards audience.
ensure excellent use of creativity in some form to sell your archetype.
use creative elements (examples include images, music, modern day connections, performance).
Pay attention to Length
Videos must be 30 seconds long. Can go up to 1:00. No longer than 1:00. Include words/captions.
Power points must be 8-10 slides (not including the title and reference slides)–with main points bulletted on each slide, and 25-50 words per slide.

When you make a claim in an essay, you express an idea or opinion about information in a text. But an effective essay does more than state ideas and opinions. To persuade your readers to accept your point of view, you’ll need to support your claim with evidence, including facts, details, examples, or logical reasons. Complete the attached worksheet from lesson 4 to practice using textual evidence. You may use the ideas from the worksheet for your essay. Submitting the worksheet is optionaland will not count against your grade; but will help you with understanding how to use textual evidence.
Please read the question to be answered carefully–this assignment is not asking you to write about The Legend of King Arthur. The prompt for the essay is below:
The legend of King Arthur is well-known in literature. Based on Unsolved Mysteries of History, there is little to suggest it is true. Do you think it is important for people to believe in legends likeKing Arthur even if there is little evidence to support them? Why or why not? Write a short (3 paragraphs) explanatory essay stating your opinion. Justify your opinion and conclusions with relevant textual evidence (quotes or paraphrased ideas from sources) and background knowledge. Remember to use relevant vocabulary from the text in your essay.
