Product Description
After choosing two American authors with two different themes, students must choose the type of project they will complete and present to the class: a compare and contrast essay, a diary, a collage, or a time capsule.

Some examples of authors and themes can include Ben Franklin and Optimism, Mark Twain and Reinvent Oneself, to Robert Frost and Individualism or Kurt Vonnegut and Overcoming Adversity. An example of the requirements of an assignment include: The Diary: Discuss ideas, events, personal goals, etc. from each author’s point-of-view in 1st person. Each author’s last entry will be in 3rd person.

Requirements:
1. Represent 2 writers and 2 themes in a creative and attractive diary
2. Write 20 total entries (10 ½-1 page passages for each writer)
3. Relate writers’ ideas, events, and personal goals to the theme that corresponds to each writer (use the stories we read in class for inspiration)
4. Date each entry (must be in writer’s lifetime)
5. Final entry must detail how that writer has influenced American culture (write in 3rd person)
6. Present and read at least 2 passages for each writer, as well as each writer’s final entry to the class....

Three other assignments in detail are also included. Great for long term American Authors projects, too!
