PLEASE FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS AS THEY HAVE BEEN GIVEN!!!!!!!
Choose ONE of the following questions and answer it.
1. According to Virginia Woolf in A Room of One’s Own, why is the Renaissance woman (woman who lived during the time of Shakespeare) silent?
2. How does Virginia Woolf use the hypothetical story of Shakespeare’s sister to illustrate the dangers of repressing intelligent, creative women in A Room of One’s Own.
Each response needs only to be TWO TO THREE WELL-DEVELOPED PARAGRAPHS, (about 250-500 words) but if you feel the need to take a topic and run with it, then feel free to do so.
I will grade your responses based on the following criteria:
1. I will look at the thoughtfulness of the answer. Your posting should have a thesis and some development to prove that thesis. If you simply answer the question without adding anything valuable to the discussion, then you’ll get a minimal grade. If you raise interesting questions or interpretations to the reading, then your grade will be higher.
a. NOTE: It is better to only have one or two major points for a thesis and then develop that point fully than it is to have three or four points without developing any of those points at all.
2. The second criterion that I will be grading your response on is surface errors. This is, after all, an English class. Just because this is only a short reader response does not mean that you can have a lot of spelling errors, run-on sentences, sentence fragments agreement errors, missing punctuation, or second person pronouns (you, your, you’re) in your response. Since you had to pass both English 1101 and 1102 to take this class, I will expect you to write your paper with a mastery of collegiate-level grammar.
I REQUIRE you to use a minimum of one direct quote (more if necessary) to help solidify your evidence.
