2. You have selected two types of criticism (from the chart above) that you would like to apply to a short analysis of the story you read.

3. Write a one-paragraph (minimum 12 sentences) analysis of the story for each of the two types of criticism you selected. For each paragraph, include:

  • A hook.
  • A brief summary.
  • An arguable thesis related to the type of criticism and the theme of the story.
  • At least 2 embedded/direct quotations from the text that support your thesis with a lead in and commentary for each.
  • A thesis echo.
  • A clincher.
