1.In one paragraph, write a summary of 200-250 words. In the first sentence give the author’s name, title of the essay, and the major idea or topic. Summarize the essay by using your own words – do not add any quotations. Be sure to provide markers like “Welty suggests . . .” or “The author continues to relate . . .” to make it clear that you are explaining someone else’s ideas and not giving your own. Be objective, complete, and coherent in your summary. For this exercise do not provide citations or a Works Cited page.
2. After the summary of the essay, write another 200-250 words by responding to one or more of the questions posed at the end of the essay. Provide the question number(s) but do not type the question itself.
