Project 15

        This Unit is based mostly on creating different writing styles which we will explore through various short stories. Not only will we consider fiction, we will also examine the different types of formatting necessary for various styles of essays (MLA vs. APA). Consider you're presenting a speech-any speech. You would present it much differently to an audience of nine-year-olds than you would to an audience of ninety-year-olds. The same principle may be applied here. If you become a doctor, you will not use MLA format often. Instead, you will use APA format (which is most popular among scientists). If you become a journalist, however, you will employ MLA format much more commonly than APA. So it is actually important that we learn these (and I promise you will use BOTH in college). 
        For you right-brained folks who might become artists, we will also be exploring the different styles that the literary classics have used and have made their own (because they knew all the rules, they can break them). So we will be reading five short stories, analyzing them, and (this is the fun part) emulating them. You will have the opportunity to let your creative side take over, for a little while at least, and see what it's like to be an author (literally).
