Write a paper considering how Franklin would respond to modern advertisements that stress the importance of fashion. Then, take a look at your own finances. How much money do you have? Can you earn more by doing extra? Do you have a budget? Do you save more or spend more? What do you spend your money on? Is it worthwhile and necessary, or frivolous? Finally, how can you become more responsible with your money? Project 2, Part B, Option 1 Project Grading Table (Teacher Use Only) Points Possible Points Earned Understanding of Franklin’s main ideas. 10 Description of modern advertising (noting at least two specific ads—what they are marketing and how they market it). 10 Application of Franklin’s ideas to the advertisements you discuss. 10 Assessment of your own spending habits. 10 Proper use of conventions (grammar, spelling, and vocabulary; sentences are complete and appropriately punctuated; capitalization is used correctly; all direct quotes from Franklin’s essay and the ads you discuss are in quotation marks and cited with in-text, MLA-style citations). Refer to guidelines in the course Appendix. You do NOT need a works cited page, only in-text citations. 10 Project 29 ENGH 039
Option 2: Imagine that you are either Roderick or Madeline from “The Fall of the House of Usher” and rewrite the story from his/her point of view. Explain what really happens (is Roderick insane, is Madeline a ghost, etc.). Any interpretation is acceptable as long as you refer to at least TWO facts, events, or details in Poe’s story that make your retelling seem logical. You may be creative, but your retelling must be consistent with what we know about the characters. (Your story should be at least 600 words —two typed, double-spaced pages—but it is fine to summarize or condense some of the events Poe describes.) Project 2, Part B, Option 2 Project Grading Table (Teacher Use Only) Points Possible Points Earned Use of a first-person narrator that shows the thoughts of either Roderick or Madeline. 10 Explanation of what causes Roderick’s sickness, why Madeline dies, and why she comes back from the vault. 15 Focus on at least two events or details from Poe’s story that show why your interpretation is logical. 10 Your story is consistent with what we know from Poe’s story. (For example, saying Roderick is trying to scare construction workers who are building a high-rise behind the House of Usher is NOT consistent because we know the house is in a remote location.) 10 Proper use of conventions (grammar, spelling, and vocabulary; sentences are complete and appropriately punctuated; capitalization is used correctly.) 5 Project 210 ENGH 039
Option 3: Nathaniel Hawthorne’s story, “The Minister’s Black Veil,” shows how people react to a symbol. Symbols are objects that express a deeper meaning or greater idea. Examine Hawthorne's story and consider the symbolism. The veil in the story symbolizes many things and creates many changes in the minister's life.
