Why is the five paragraph essay considered a good template for basic writing?

Answer:

The five paragraph essay offers a clear format to organize the writer's thoughts. Additionally, by using three paragraphs (three points) to substantiate the writer's thesis, it provides the supporting data necessary to develop the conclusion contained in the final paragraph.

Question:

How does Lisa Ko use the characters Angel and Deming to explore different facets of cultural identity in her novel "The Leavers" ?

Answer:

Although Angel and Deming are both Chinese, author Lisa Ko uses the characters to examine the difference between one adoptee who clings to the culture of his biological mother and another adoptee who fully embraces the culture of her adoptive family. The characters are starkly different in their ability to trust others, level of self-awareness and definition of what it means to be American.

Question:

Describe instances and the impact of Shirley Jackson's use of irony in the short story The Lottery.

Inactive

Answer:

The use of irony as a literary device in The Lottery begins with the story's title and continues until the revelation of the lottery winner's "prize." The title, townspeople's anticipation and even the setting would normally foreshadow a positive outcome. However Jackson uses irony to highlight how unquestioning adherence of traditions can be destructive, even if those involved cannot recognize it.
