  6. 6. <ul><li>Short Story Study Guide </li></ul><ul><li>The first assignment involves creating a web resource study guide focusing on the five short stories we are discussing in class, &quot;The Lie,&quot; &quot;Teenage Wasteland,&quot; &quot;The Name,&quot; &quot;A Visit to Grandmother,&quot; and &quot;Rules of the Game.&quot; Each group will be required to compile essential information on each story that explores setting, characterization, symbolism, and conflict. As we read the stories and discuss them in class, each group will be responsible for compiling relevant information on their wiki page. The pages, in turn, will become student-generated resources to use in the writing of a formal literary analysis essay. By completing such work on a wiki, we can better collaborate with one another during planning and writing. Directions </li></ul><ul><li>1. Create a page on this site 2. On the page, compile the following for EACH story: Setting  - A description of the setting in the story AND words/phrases/quotes from the story that help illustrate the setting. </li></ul><ul><li>Conflict  - A description of the major conflict(s) in the story and how it is resolved AND words/phrases/quotes from the story that related to the conflict. </li></ul><ul><li>Characterization  - A description of the major characters in the story AND words/phrases/quotes from the story that are used in the story to reveal his/her personality. </li></ul><ul><li>Symbolism  - A descriptiong of the symbolism and how it connects to the story's central meaning. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Compile any other supporting or supplementary information or related links that may help provided information related to the stories. 4. Proofread and revise your pages continually to minimize errors and enhance visual appeal. Criteria </li></ul><ul><li>Each page must contain original work All components of the assignment must be completed to earn full credit Information on the page must be accurate and relevant to the four literary terms focused on There must be numerous examples directly from the stories in support of the assignment Each group member must contribute information and ideas </li></ul>
