Creative Writing: Choose a character from Hanberry’s A Raisin in the Sun and write at least a diary or journal entry that this character might have written. Try to reflect what is happening in the play in the entry and be sure to include the character’s private thoughts and ideas.
You should also use the information you learned from the “Cultural and Historical Contexts” reading to shape the diary entries; in other words, try to have the diary entry reflect the character’s experience of the larger world around him or her, based on current events of the time.
Your postings will be reviewed according to the following criteria:
· Writing well-developed paragraphs relevant to the prompt(s) (minimum 400 words).
· Be sure that your thesis is explicit and supported with one to two quotations from the literature.
· Replying to two of your classmates with meaningful responses with a minimum of 30 words (do not simply write “I agree. I like what you’ve written.”)
· Following the rules of Standard English (for example, no lowercase “i” for the pronoun I). Please proofread your writing before clicking the ‘submit’ button.
