Short Story Assignment
Using the course readings and the plenary by Dr. Perkins as examples
write your own short story. It should meet the following criteria:
Be short (500 to 1000 words).
Set a scene-either from something
you know (e.g. Perkins) or
speculate about (e.g., Le Guin).
Have a plot about conflict between self and community.
Illustrate conflict resolution.
Team members will each review a copy of the short story in the R:Drive.
Reviewers will comment using Word comment function. Both reviewed
and final revised stories will be submitted. Students will receive
grades for both their story and for their reviews of team members stories.
