"Uprising" Fictional Narrative
24 April,2018By: Anna DeRoos
Suppose that a short chapter follows the three that we just read in the fictional story “Uprising” on pages 283-302. In this chapter, the point of view remains third-person limited, but events are seen through the eyes of a different character.  In third person limited point of view, the narrator only knows the thoughts and feelings of one character, and that character is closely followed throughout the story. All characters are described by their first name or by using pronouns, such as 'they', 'he', and 'she'.

Please adhere to the following timeline for this assignment:
Step 1: choose your main character and brainstorm notes for your story
Due: At the end of class on Monday, April 30th
Step 2: Triangle Factory Fire research notes
Due: At the end of class on Monday, April 30th
Step 3: rough draft
Due: At the end of class on Monday, May 7th
Step 4: revise/edit your work
Due: At the end of class on Wednesday, May 9th
Step 5: final draft
Due: At the end of class on Thursday, May 10th

You will be graded closely on your proper use of dialogue and third person limited point of view, in addition to your knowledge of the character’s likely goals, experiences and interactions with other characters, and factual references you make to the Triangle Factory Fire throughout your story. Your final draft is due at the end of class on Thursday, May 10th.
