This essay assignment can be used to wrap up the reading of Medea by Euripides. Students are given 3 writing prompts to choose from.
Here’s an essay to write as we wrap up our reading of Euripides’ Medea. Choose ONE of the prompts on this sheet and:
a) read the prompt carefully, letting it tell you what the structure, focus and content of the essay should be.
b) next create the prewriting/outline of an properly structured essay that addresses the prompt. Make sure your prewriting is brief, but clearly shows what each sentence of the body paragraphs will contain.
c) create a typed, MLA-formatted DRAFT of the essay. You may bring the draft to me for feedback, if you wish. Be sure to allow plenty of time to do so because too many persons wanting feedback at the last minute means some will not receive it.
d) REVISE the essay using a variety of sources mentioned in class. Be sure that the examples and evidence in the revision are clear and vivid. Be sure to follow guidelines for incorporating direct and indirect quotes that were distributed and discussed in class.
e) create a final, typed draft of the essay, stapling it to the top of the prewriting and draft. The prewriting does not need to be recopied onto the final draft. If creating a typed final copy will be a problem, please see me no later than the end of class today.
