Prompt: Please create a creative piece inspired by the play attached below . The

Prompt: Please create a creative piece inspired by the play attached below . The creative piece can be anything from a piece of visual art, craft, prose, poetry, music, multi-media, video, or anything in between. You will accompany the creative piece with an analytical/critical discussion of why you chose to represent the text you did, in the way that you did and how it connects to our course theme(s) and key concept(s). Please submit both the project and the response on Blackboard; you will need to figure out a way to submit something I can see and mark (files, pictures, videos, audio, etc.), even if your piece transcends the two dimensional!
The Project: Keep in mind that this final assignment should reflect what you’ve learned about plays and playwrighting in this course. This project is meant to help you connect your own creativity to the course’s ideas and text(s). The possibilities are endless, and your creative piece can be anything inspired by any of the plays studied this term. That could mean:re-writing part of a scene from another narrative perspective
an expansion of one of our author’s scenes or ideas
your own short story or poem inspired by one of our texts
creating a painting, a song, or a short film inspired by our texts
creating a collage of events or images (visual, musical, or digital), that relates to our texts or our course concerns
acting out a part of a scene
cooking a mealYour piece may be prose, poetry, drama, visual, musical, dance, culinary, sculpture, photograph. I am very open to the creative possibilities and to the inspiration that might find you. The point of this assignment is to get us all engaged in our own creative processes, and to allow the texts we have read this term to ignite our own imaginations, inspirations, and skills. If you are unsure if your idea is appropriate, feel free to talk with me and I would be happy to brainstorm with you.
The Response: Your creative piece should be accompanied by an analytical or critical discussion of why you chose to make the piece that you did in the manner that you did. You could address any combination of the following questions: why this play, episode, or scene? Why this medium? How does it relate to, support, or push back against the issues we’ve discussed this term? Think about voice, tone, and mood. Think about historical contexts, representational strategies, and any relevant social, political, aesthetic, and/or philosophical ideas. This section of the project should be a 300-500 word reflection on what you have done and why, and how you see your creative piece relating to our course and its concerns.

Plagiarism Warning: ALL writing assignments in this class have Originality Check

Plagiarism Warning:
ALL writing assignments in this class have Originality Check enabled. That means plagiarized material will be flagged. Originality Check gives the instructor information about what percentage of a document is lifted from other sources (including online sources and papers submitted to other universities, etc.), and a listing of all such sources. Instances of plagiarism will be reported for academic misconduct to the Dean of Students at Student Affairs. In other words, please use your own words and ideas for all your writing.
You should also refrain from relying on outside research, opting instead to develop and present your own argument and analyses. ANY source you do use needs to be credited (with quotation marks, citations, etc.) EACH and EVERY time you use a source. It is NOT acceptable to “borrow” key words/phrases/sentences from another source and then just leave a citation at the end of a paragraph. You need to indicate EXACTLY when and how you are using someone else’s ideas or words. Even if I have not called out anyone in discussion boards for such a practice, doing so in exams and papers will result in severe penalties.
Please keep in mind that these are relatively short essay responses, so please try to limit even quotations from the texts to short and very relevant passages. (READ: Get straight to the point and do NOT exceed 3-4 lines of quotation per quote.)
You are able to view the percentage of material flagged by “TurnItIn” similarity score for Originality Check. If you find your percentage creeping above 15-20% or so, that is a clear indication that you need to cut down on the amount you quote/cite. These are not just arbitrary numbers but rather an indication of how much of your own voice is coming through in your writing.
***Remember that when you quote, those words do NOT count towards your total word count (for better or for worse). Do not summarize plot.
Please remember that this is a “take-home” final essay exam for a 200-level English class. Your document is expected to have error-free grammar, complete sentences, appropriate paragraph breaks, original ideas and analysis, and specific details:
Please include an introductory paragraph which states your central, over-arching argument as well as distinct and clearly-defined body paragraphs.
———————————————————————————————————-
ESSAY PROMPT: Please respond to the following prompt and respond with a fully-developed and nicely-detailed essay of 900-1000 words. 150 points.
Each topic is framed such that there is a bit of explanation and/or questions for further critical thought, and the bolded portion is the actual topic you need to address.
3. Morality
Sometimes we call it the difference between knowing “right” from “wrong,” or when we choose to do “good” versus “evil.” Our sense of “morality” can be socially derived, or tied to our religious teachings, or handed down over generations within our families. Other times, we could have a very personal sense of “morality,” one that does not adhere to any particular group or institution. Our notion of morality may even change over time, under different circumstances. In any case, many of the works we studied dealt with this topic. Focusing on Frankenstein, Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Murder on the Orient Express, write an essay addressing the thematic significance of “morality” in your chosen works.
For further guidance: How was morality defined, described, or understood in the works you chose? How might we understand morality as constructed in those works, and how widely shared is that sense of morality by the other characters in their respective works? What does it mean to be moral, or to change one’s notion of morality? Why might it be important that notions of morality—or even what it means to be moral—might change between or within these works?]
Requirements: Included in the details | .doc file
Please be sure to include an introduction paragraph with a clear thesis statement in the last sentence of the introduction paragraph and a conclusion paragraph
Please be sure to carefully follow the instructions
No plagiarism & No Course Hero & No Chegg. The assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool

Hello, my name is, and I will be your social worker.
How are you?
Jason: I am doing well and you?
N: I am well, thank you.
N: The reason why am here is to see how you have been doing.
Jason: I have been under depression and stress. My father was killed in Iraq during the war in 2006. Then my siblings left the country and my mom and I became alone from a family of 6. I got kidnapped, but I escaped from them. We had to travel to another country to be able to immigrate to an unknown country. We did not have any money. Our businesses were burned, home, and everything in general. We went to Lebanon, I was only 16 and my mom was an old lady, we could not make it financially. I had to work even if I was underage. Back to the story, when I used to leave my school and walk home, I used to see dead bodies, I was sick of seeing people’s heads chopped and placed on their backs. It was very scary. I used to always then when will be my turn. Since this was daily.
N: I am very sorry to hear what you have been going through. Can you explain how your father die? And how your sibling left without you and your mom?
Jason: There was a boom explosion, and he was in that location, so he disappeared. My siblings left because leaving the country and crossing borders needed money, we did not have enough, and that is why mom and I had to do it the other way. Anyways, long story short, I personally always think of all of what was going on, walking between dead people, seeing dead people all around, used to live in fear all the time, etc.
N: This is a very tough situation, I am very sorry Matthew. Tell me about your accomplishments in the U.S.
Jason: Well, I arrived in the U.S. and did not speak any English. I went to high school, and I graduated with a 3.8 GPA. Then I went to Community college and studied for 3 years. Transferred to SDSU where I earned my BA in Accounting. Now I am working toward my MBA and am almost finished. I have been working for 8 years in the same job. I have accomplished a lot in life, but the only fear that I always see in my sleep is dead people. This has been the problem.
Write a reflection above what the counselor N must advise Jason on his story. what she should do?

Reminder – The following is a SUGGESTED structure for your paper. However, if you wish to take it in your own direction, you’re welcome to do so BUT you must answer every question to the best of your ability. Your essay must be 2 FULL pages but can be longer if you want.
Introduction
What did you expect this class to be like before you started it? How did you feel about reading and writing back then? Do you feel any differently now?
Having completed your projects, reflect on moments that weren’t as effective and what you do to help make them more effective? What would you change, update, modify?
Pick 3 moments where you recognize your own learning (you could discuss the projects again, but it might be more beneficial to instead focus on either the things we did in class on a daily basis, on the articles we read, or the work you did with your classmates). What did you learn? How did you learn those things?
Discuss the multiple perspectives (such as cultural, disciplinary, and ethical) that you have encountered in this class and the way you incorporated that knowledge into your work this semester. In other words, think of how you tried to see things from other peoples’ perspectives and how that might have influenced the way you did things (ex. Did you try understand how a hostile audience might disagree with what you’re saying in your research paper and try to address those concerns? Did you try to consider the culture of the audience of your remix and try to shape your Remix project to appeal to a young audience? Did you understand the significance of using sources to support yourself? Did you find yourself reflecting on Justice as a concept that is useful to understand how language and literacy can change, shift, or develop based on the agency of those who discuss justice?)
In what ways can you use what you learned here in other classes, in current/future work situations, or in your own life? In other words, what value does what you learned in our class have in your development as a person, citizen, writer, and student?
Learning Moments
Reflect on the “What We Owe Each Other Document.” What was it about? Did it change your perception of the class? Having finished the class, what do you think about the document and what would you change about it? What do you think Mr. G’s goal was for using the document for the class? Was Justice enacted withing the WWOEO Document? If so, how? If not, why not?
New Perspectives

Novel Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel Respond to the following question

Novel Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
Respond to the following questions making sure to label the question you are answering (#1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) with at least 500 words and including direct quotes and page numbers.

Questions:
1. Now that you’ve read the entire novel, go back and reread the passage by Czeslaw Milosz that serves as an epigraph. What does it mean? Why did Mandel choose it to introduce Station Eleven? Does the novel have a main character? Who would you consider it to be?
2. Arthur Leander dies while performing King Lear and the Traveling Symphony performs Shakespeare’s works. Mandel writes, “Shakespeare was the third born to his parents, but the first to survive infancy. Four of his siblings died young. His son, Hamnet, died at eleven and left behind a twin. Plague closed the theaters again and again, death flickering over the landscape” (Mandel 57). How do Shakespearean motifs coincide with those of Station Eleven, both the novel and the comic?
3. What is the metaphor of the Station Elevencomic books? How does the Undersea connect to the events of the novel? “Survival is insufficient,” a line from Star Trek: Voyager, is the Traveling Symphony’s motto. What does it mean to them?7. The prophet discusses death: “I’m not speaking of the tedious variations on physical death. There’s the death of the body, and there’s the death of the soul. I saw my mother die twice” (Mandel 62). Knowing who his mother was, what do you think he meant by that? Arthur’s death happens to coincide with the arrival of the Georgia Flu. If Jeevan had been able to save him, it wouldn’t have prevented the apocalypse. But how might the trajectory of the novel been different?
4. Certain items turn up again and again, for instance the comic books and the paperweight—things Arthur gave away before he died because he didn’t want any more possessions. And Clark’s Museum of Civilization turns what we think of as mundane belongings into totems worthy of study. What point is Mandel making? On a related note, some characters—like Clark—believe in preserving and teaching about the time before the flu. But in Kirsten’s interview with François Diallo, we learn that there are entire towns that prefer not to: “We went to a place once where the children didn’t know the world had ever been different . . . ” (115). What are the benefits of remembering, and of not remembering? What do you think happened during the year Kirsten can’t remember?
5. In a letter to his childhood friend, Arthur writes that he’s been thinking about a quote from Yeats, “Love is like the lion’s tooth” (158). What does this mean, and why is he thinking about it? How does the impending publication of those letters affect Arthur? Arthur remembers Miranda saying “I regret nothing,” and uses that to deepen his understanding of Lear, “a man who regrets everything” (206) as well as his own life. How do his regrets fit into the larger scope of the novel? Other than Miranda, are there other characters that refuse to regret?
6. Throughout the novel, those who were alive during the time before the flu remember specific things about those days: the ease of electricity, the taste of an orange. In their place, what do you think you’d remember most? What do you imagine the Traveling Symphony will find when they reach the brightly lit town to the south? The novel ends with Clark, remembering the dinner party and imagining that somewhere in the world, ships are sailing. Why did Mandel choose to end the novel with him?
