Product Description
In this assignment, students analyze the characterization of Mrs. Jong in Amy Tan's short story, "The Rules of the Game." Students are reminded of the definition of "antagonist," and then asked to prove that Mrs. Jong, though not a villain, still meets the criteria of an antagonist. This is a paragraph-length assignment that could be adapted to a more substantial writing assignment.

After establishing a claim, an outline guides students through the process of integrating supporting quotations as support, explaining their support, and ultimately, generating a well-written paragraph.

The packet includes an assignment sheet, a detailed rubric, and a guiding outline. Additionally, a modified outline (paragraph template) is included, which offers additional support for students with such needs.
