Portfolio #1: Short Stories Task: analyze a short story from this unit of study by producing a real world product (review or research-based article), OR by creating a story extension. Choose from the following ideas for Portfolio #1 (or if you have your own idea about how to accomplish the same goals with a different task, ASK your teacher): Write a review of one of the stories from our unit. Follow the format often used for film reviews found online. Include: rating (how many stars?), brief summary, background to the work (author & historical period), 3 developed reasons for your rating, the lesson of the story, recommendations (who would enjoy this story and/or who would not) Write an expository article about a topic related to any of the discussions, activities, or stories during this unit. The article should be original (in your own words with your own ideas) but may contain factual information found in sources. You may not plagiarize by copying information from the internet. Your article should highlight the importance of the topic and how it is connected to one of the stories from this unit. Your connection should include a brief summary of that story (example: “The Masque of the Red Death” and the current issues with Ebola OR “The Open Window” and current treatments for anxiety disorders). Persuasive/Mini-research paper: “The Masque of the Red Death” is a short story that is allegorical of the seven ages of man, the seven deadly sins, or Poe’s personal life and tragedies? You decide. Cite evidence to support your claim.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
