analyze a piece of literature, a movie, or a nonfiction essay.

Your assignment is to analyze a piece of literature, a movie, or a nonfiction essay. Look closely at the details, and pick one element to analyze how the author uses it to create a meaningful work. You may choose to do a character analysis, a plot analysis, or analyze a theme or motif from a story, book, or movie. You may choose to look closely at how the setting affects the theme or complements it. If you write a character analysis, for example, pick three or four traits that make that character unique or memorable and write a paragraph about each one. OR write about how that character changes or has an epiphany and include three or four different events that lead to that moment. What do other characters say about that person? What does that character think, do and say? If you write about theme, describe the events or the details that develop the theme. What meaning do symbols contribute to the story? Why do you think the author writes this story the way he or she does? What can we learn from it?
