Closed book for the multiple-choice part. Open book for the writing part.
Open notes and handouts for both parts.
Materials to bring: Skinny scantron, #2 pencils with good erasers, loose-leaf paper (8-1/2x11 preferred), pens (blue or black ink), notes and handouts received in class. Also, bring your Barnet and Tidepools texts for the writing part.
Research: MLA Citations (see “Research Method” handout), In-text and set-off quotations, credentials, Works Cited List, APEx formula
Short Story Elements: plot (contents and story structure, foreshadowing and flashback), character (traits, flat or round, dynamic or static), theme, point of view, setting and atmosphere, style (diction, syntax, language devices such as metaphor and symbolism).
Language Skills: consistency, conciseness, parallelism, placement of modifiers
Writing/Critical Thinking Skills: coherence, thesis statement, topic sentences, transitions, rational train of thought, overgeneralization, non sequitur, writing process, revision and editing

Readings and Team Talk2: Barnet readings assigned in Unit Three. Know facts of the following seven stories in Barnet, and be able to identify and discuss the short-story elements in each: (1) Ambrose Bierce’s "A Horseman in the Sky" (1067ff), (2) Ralph Ellison's "Battle Royal" (1271ff), (3) Molly Ivens' "A Short Story about the Vietnam Memorial" (1109ff), (4) Bel Kaufman's "Sunday in the Park" (721ff), (5) U.K. Le Guin’s "The Ones Who Walk away from Omelas" (1244ff), (6) Bobbie Ann Mason's "Shiloh" (653ff), and (6) Tim O’Brien’s "The Things They Carried" (1112ff). Also, know the facts and be able to analyze elements in one short story from Tidepools that best communicates an idea about peace (your choice – check with Prof. Floren to be sure it’s a story, not an essay). There will be a writing assignment on the stories as well as questions on the multiple-choice part. Be ready to compare these eight stories, in theme, plot, character, setting, point of view, and/or style.
