  • Choose two of the stories and write a comparison of the symbols in the stories:
    • What do each of the symbols represent? 
    • Is the symbolism directly or indirectly conveyed to the reader?
    • How do each of the symbols affect the tone/theme of the story?
    • Use cited text examples to support your analysis
    • Introduce an explanation of a symbol that would be present in your life story. You can attach a picture of your symbol (an example of this might be a baby blanket from your childhood, or a baseball from your first game). Explain how this symbol represents you
