This is an at home assignment designed as an assessment for the short story "The Yellow Wallpaper". It requires the students to write a short essay about the story taking into account our reading, our class discussion, and the supplemental material covered in class. The students should quote from the text to substaniate their opinions and brief examples of how to do so are included with the instructions. The essay prompt asks the students to hypothesize about gender roles within society and to consider how these roles are currently defined within societies today.
NOTE: There is also a FREE copy of "The Yellow Wallpaper" in my store under the heading, Short Story Analysis - The Yellow Wallpaper. Use it for whatever you need :)
