Connect and Compare an Essay, a Short Story, and a Poem
This assignment was designed to prepare you for the essays that you will write in your college English courses.
- Here you are asked to choose one nonfiction essay, one short story, and one poem to connect by theme and other elements, using textual evidence as support.
- In college, you will have assignments like this but you will also have exams where you must answer essay questions with specific examples from works read over the whole semester.
- We hope that you learn to identify passages that may be useful as you read over each work several times during the writing of your essay.
