For each prompt (a prompt can be a term, phrase, or concept) given below, please

For each prompt (a prompt can be a term, phrase, or concept) given below, please write:
a) The author who wrote about the term/phrase/concept. (You only have to cite ONE author for each concept, but you can definitely cite multiple authors. Citing multiple authors may help you to give a fuller definition of the prompt than only citing one. But you do not have to cite all of the authors who wrote about a particular term.) (0.5 point)
b) The meaning of the term/phrase/concept, as it pertains to the topics covered in this course. (You should plan on writing at least a few sentences to give an adequate definition.) (1 point)
c) A television example that illustrates the term/phrase/concept. (You only need to write about one example: a television show OR episode, OR character, OR plotline from a TV show, OR a block of shows, OR an entire network. You may give more than one example if you wish but only one is required. Please note that you must write about a television example, not a film example – anything that is a serial program [that is, consisting of multiple episodes] on broadcast TV, cable TV, or streaming platforms that you view in your domestic space, like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, HBO Go, CBS All Access, etc., counts as “television.”) (0.5 point)
d) How the television example relates to, and illustrates, the term/phrase/concept. Make sure to refer to at least one idea or argument made by the author (whom you named in part a). (You should plan on writing 1 to 2 paragraphs—6 to 12 sentences at least—to explain how your example relates to the term/phrase/concept.) (2 points)
You must format your answer according to parts a, b, c, and d, like this:
1. (term/phrase/concept)
a. (author’s name)
b. (definition of term/phrase/concept)
c. (name of an example, like “Game of Thrones”)
d. (how the example relates to the term/phrase/concept)
Points will be deducted for poor spelling, grammar, and/or punctuation (up to 1 point). Points will also be deducted for improper formatting – proper formatting = listing out the different parts of each answer as a., b., c., d. (up to 1 point).
Each response to a prompt is worth up to 4 points.
Assignment 1 Prompts:

1. In one sentence say why you think the play is called A DOLL’S HOUSE. (I am specifically asking for one sentence because i want you to boil your idea down to one clear concept. You have plenty of room in the other two questions to write more expansively.)
2. Choose one quote from the play and explain how it is an example of one of the things I have talked about in this post or something that is talked about in the textbook. (Please note that this question is asking you to analyze the text and SPECIFICALLY relate it to something previously studied in the course. It is not asking for how the play made you feel. That should be expressed in the third question. If your response does not clearly relate your chosen quote to specific things from other parts of the course you will not get credit for your response to this question.)
3. What was your honest reaction to the way the play ended? How did you feel about Nora’s decision?
4. What are your overall thoughts and reflections about the play?
For question 2 talk about
Protagonist

Note the places in which your chosen piece adheres AND/OR departs from the Hero’s Journey. Feel free to use bullet points, but be sure to follow all other writing guidelines for this assignment.
Describe how each step appears in your chosen piece of media
Ordinary World: Describe the ordinary world in which your hero lives. What does it look like? Who/what else is in it?
Call to Adventure: What is the call to adventure? Is it an object? A person? An event?
Refusing the Call: How does the hero refuse or hesitate to accept the call? What finally changes their mind?
Meeting the Mentor: Who is the mentor? How does your character meet them?
Departure/Crossing the Threshold: How does your character cross into the unknown world? What does it look like?
Tests/Allies, Enemies: What are some of the tests, allies, and enemies that appear in your story?

Choose one primary character from the play as the focus of your character study.

Choose one primary character from the play as the focus of your character study. How and why
does this character change over the course of the play? Your goal is to show the character traits a
character possesses at the start of the work, and then describe the changes or developments that occur, using examples from the text as support. Follow these steps to complete your analysis:
Make a list of characteristics (selfish, generous, brave, cowardly, etc.) that you feel the character
possesses.
Find lines of that character’s dialogue that reflect each characteristic. Complete this exercise for
each scene in the play so that you can see how the character changes.
Characters are developed not only through their own dialogue but also through the words of others. Add lines of dialogue spoken by other characters to show what can be known about that character based on what other characters
say.
Once you’ve made your list and found examples of textual support, put your ideas together into an
essay that answers the question: “How and why does this character change over the course of the play?”
Suggested Length: 750 words
