This resource is aligned with the Short Fiction II Unit of the new AP Literature and Composition curriculum framework. This story and the resources provided provide a delightful way to build students' literary analysis, discussion, and writing skills.
"Where Are You Going? Where Have You Been?" is a terrifying story built around the massive cultural shifts of the 1960s where a teenage girl comes face to face with a Satan-like fiend, Arnold Friend, who poses an imminent threat. This is a story rife with elements to analyze: symbols, story structure, Biblical allusions, descriptive imagery, and more. Help your students deepen their analysis skills through this text.
Please note that this resource does not include the full-text of "Where Are You Going? Where Have You Been?" but that the text can be found online or in a number of anthologies

SET-1: Setting and the details associated with it not only depict a time and place, but also convey values associated with that setting.

NAR-1: The narrator’s or speaker’s perspective controls the details and emphases that affect how readers experience and interpret a text.
