Choose ONE of the following prompts:

Essay Prompt: According to the authors of “Two Friends” and “Damon and Pythias,” what are the two most important aspects of friendship? Use examples from “Two Friends,” and “Damon and Pythias,” to “prove” your ideas. (Your definition of friendship needs to have two characteristics and be supported by those stories.)


2. Several stories in this unit contain elements of suspense to make the stories more interesting. Decide which story did the best job keeping the reader interested because of the use of suspense.

Essay Prompt: Which story from Unit 1 is the best, due to the inclusion of suspense? (You need two techniques that the author uses to create suspense as the reasons for why it is the most suspenseful story.)

3. Some have said that “People get what they deserve.” Do you agree with this statement? Choose two stories from the unit that help “prove” your opinion.



Essay Prompt: Write an analytical essay that answers the question, Do people get what they deserve? You need to use two stories from Unit 1 to support your opinion. (You will decide on two reasons why this is or is not true and use the stories to support those reasons.)
