EL121: The Short Story and Essay Writing
TMA: Fall Semester 2015 - 2016
TMA: 20 points
Cut-off date: end of week 11
Write an essay of 800 to 1000 words on the importance of endings in short stories. Choose two short stories from Book One and compare their endings, showing how appropriate, surprising or successful these endings are.
Guide Notes: First read the short stories of your choice very carefully. Try to find out what is specific about each ending, what makes it particularly interesting, totally unexpected, and/ or rather inevitable. Compare these endings and try to see if they are similar or rather different from each other.
Throughout your close study of these short stories, it is very important to keep in mind what is said, during class debates, about endings in short stories. You should also use information in your textbooks and online resources relevant to this topic. Various sources can help you understand the topic and support your ideas.
Once you have fully analysed the topic and thought about its various aspects, it becomes easy to come up with an interesting thesis statement.
The following are some questions that can help you with your research, but feel free to add more questions, and to ask yourself different questions:
• Do the endings in the selected short stories resemble each other? What distinguishes each ending?
• Which ending is likely to impress the reader?
• How would each short story be with a different ending?
• Can there be a better ending for one or both short stories?
• Remember to ask yourself:
• Have I found a solid thesis statement?
• Have I organized my ideas and followed a proper plan?
• Have I justified my answers?
• Have I used secondary sources to support my ideas?
Note: Referring to material from the e-library will be appreciated
The following are guidelines on plagiarism:
If you submit an assignment that contains work other than yours without acknowledging your sources, you are committing plagiarism. This might occur when:
• Using a sentence or phrase that you have come across
• Copying word-for-word directly from a text
• Paraphrasing the words from the text very closely
• Using text downloaded from the Internet
• Borrowing statistics or assembled facts from another person or source
• Copying or downloading figures, photographs, pictures or diagrams without acknowledging your sources
• Copying from the notes or essays of a fellow student
(Slightly adapted from OU document on quoting versus plagiarism)
It is important to remember that plagiarism is strictly barred and would be subject to punitive action by the Arab Open University.
Enjoy your TMA
