For the last couple days, we have been reading a short story called, "A&P". In this short story, whether you liked it or not, you found that the author shows strong VOICE. This is something that you will practice doing throughout the school year, so don't forget that, if you write with strong VOICE, you can say:
In class, we analyzed the character of Sammy, the narrator. Then we looked at the VOICE of the author. We determined that John Updike's VOICE is strong and follows the above requirements.
To further emphasize VOICE, we split into groups to write the same story using LITTLE voice.
Our homework assignment is to write a ONE PAGE essay about a moment in our own lives. This essay should be filled with YOUR VOICE and will be graded according to the 5/3/1 rubric handed out in class.
Have a great night.
