Creative Critical Response and Reflection Assignment
For this exam, you’ll write a one-page response to any short
story or poem you’ve read so far in the course. Choose a
piece you’ve either enjoyed, found particularly interesting, or
have strong feelings about. This won’t be a straight analysis
of the chosen work, but rather a creative interpretation of the
story or poem’s plot, characters, language, and themes. After
you’ve written your piece, you’ll write a five-paragraph reflection (500–750 words) that defends your creative response.
This reflection will explain your creative choices and the
ideas you chose to highlight in your creative response.
This project will allow you to engage with the source material
in a reflective and critical way. You can use the “Questions

and 581–582 of your Introduction to Literature textbook to
assist you as you create your commentary on your chosen
piece. You’ll choose how you would like to respond to your

4) Write a letter to a certain character or speaker
