In-Class Writing, Monday 11/14

Spend the first 20 mins of class on the following prompt.  Feel free to draw on our conversation on Friday about Young Adult (YA) fiction and utopian novels.

We know that Writing Analytically suggests that one way to make a claim is to think about similarity in difference, or difference in similarity.  So, answer the following in your freewrite:

Do you think that Boy Meets Boy and Luna are more obviously similar?  If so, state why and then look for unexpected difference.  Articulate what that difference is (using evidence from the text where necessary)  and then say why you think it is important to explore this difference.
