Comparison and Contrast - D. H. Lawrence
Students will read two short stories, The Rocking Horse Winner and The Horse Dealer's Daughter by D. H. Lawrence. They will write a comparison and contrast paper on some element of fiction.
First, you will have the students read the two stories: The Horse Dealer's Daughter and The Rocking Horse Winner by D. H. Lawrence.
Then, you will have them write an essay comparing and contrasting the two stories. They need to choose some aspect to write about such as themes, characters, setting, plot, or another literary element.
After that, they will submit their essays to you for grading. This will take more than one class period, so you might want to assign the reading as homework and have them write their essays in class. They need to take notes as they read so they can use them to write their essays in class.
You can grade their papers on grammar, sentence structure, paragraph structure, punctuation, spelling, and organization.
