SAMPLE Unit 5 Literature Assignment Template
HU 200 — section number
Part I: For this Assignment, you will compose a quest narrative from your life. You may write this as a letter to another person considering the same quest. You will aim to tell them your story and call them to action as well. This narrative may be about your return to acquire your degree, about a decision to change your life, to pursue a relationship or career, or to reinvent yourself. The narrative will likely include the highs and the lows of that quest along with insight into why you kept moving toward your goal. Instead of a letter, you could write the narrative as a poem, a dialogue, or a work of creative fiction. However, the work must be an original composition for the Assignment, related to your own experience and offering a call to action toward a reader.
You should employ at least two of the concepts from the assigned reading on literature, such as a metaphor, image, or symbol.
The narrative must be at least 1 page, but can be longer.
Part II: In at least 500 words, explain how you used the concepts of literature in creating your narrative. Use and cite the text to explain what the concept was, and then tell how you interpreted and used this concept in your narrative.
Clarify for the reader how you demonstrated leadership in your call to action for the reader. How did you communicate your vision, and what techniques did you use to persuade them?
Reflect on telling the story. Was it a difficult process? What helped you to get inspired, and what made you tell this particular story?
