Three Sides To Every Story December 5, 2007 - December 22, 2007
Reading and Deliberating
this is the most challenging contest yet, and if you think you can whip something together in a class period or two--THINK AGAIN.
everyone has a point of view. it's how you see the world and how you feel about certain issues. it's who you are and where you're from and everything that's happened to you in your life. these all determine how you view the world--your point of view.
in this contest you will try to create a story, scene, conversation, poem, etc... but instead of just writing it how you want to write it, from your point of view, you will need to write it from three points of view.
so you will need 3 poems, or 3 stories, or 3 of whatever you write. and each of the three needs to be from a different person's perspective.
for example, you could do three poems about a car accident, one from each of the different people's points of view.
or even a plane hijacking done from the point of view of three different people, maybe the flight attendant, a passenger, and the hijacker.
think about it and don't choose something where all three people are going to come out with the same thing. that will defeat the purpose of writing three pieces.
THE GOAL OF THIS CONTEST IS TO GET THREE DIFFERENT LOOKS AT THE SAME THING, TO GAIN A BETTER UNDERSTANDING THROUGH SEVERAL POINTS OF VIEW INSTEAD OF JUST ONE.
please do not submit something that is half-assed or done in a day or two. i will reject these, send them back, and have you do them over. that will not be fun for you.
you may enter TWO different sets of work if you like. it may increase your chance of winning.
in addition to the prize, this will be a class grade, so completion is mandatory for all class members. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will receive extra points on top of the "A".
$$10, PRIZE WILL BE IN THE FORM OF A WAWA CARD
