Summarize your personal and general experience with the reading, readings, performance, or concept involved in your chosen question (How did it make you feel?

Please use this format or you will not receive credit for the assignment: Thesis sentence —the “thesis statement” of your paragraph or what you intend to prove, including all of the pertinent information that may be involved in answering the question (like the play or performance involved, your key terms, and your assertion regarding the question).Lead-in sentence(s) —one or two sentences that establishes the context for the evidence you provide.Evidence sentence(s) —the specific example or examples from the class experience that best helps you answer the question. Analysis and Conclusion —this is the longest part of the paragraph, explaining what the evidence means and how it applies to your assertion and other aspects of the question.Use a formal writing style, and do your best to avoid first person. [1 paragraph—10-12 meaty but concise sentences]3) You have only a small amount of space to make a lot of mistakes. Be carefulEvery time you use the title of a play, like Oklahoma, it should be italicized. all caps or underlined.Watch your grammar and punctuation.

Though I don’t really agree with the politics of the show (I am against gun control), I thought that the way they presented cyber bullying was really accurate and reminded me of problems that occurred in my own high school. I really felt for Linda (played by Elizabeth Heflin) and found her grief over the death of her son quote touching. I would gladly see this play again.Section 2: In Teresa Rebeck’s new play O Beautiful, the danger of the media to family relationships appears in the construction of the set and how it represents how people are forced to interact with the media. In O Beautiful, the cavernous main set of a high school gymnasium conceals behind bleachers that open a large, rolling platform made to look like a television studio from Fox News. The character Simon West, a loud-mouthed, conservative television host, rides in and out of the play, shaking a machine gun in the air as he interviews various founding fathers (like Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson) about how we need to get back true American values. His key interview is with Ben Franklin, who explains that what made the founding fathers great people was not that they held conservative values but that they listened to one another and created a country through compromise, though West does not seem to hear the message. Throughout the play, the platform enters and dominates the center of the stage, while the family supposedly watching the show are off to the side at stage left. The director Sandy Robbins clearly makes the family seem much smaller and weaker than West’s show, keeping them off-center and simple compared to the sparkling lights and video that accompany West’s dramatic entrances at the center of the stage. As the various characters watch the show, they are obviously being influenced by what West’s character says, whether it be that it is acceptable to be judgmental of others or that it is fine to own a gun. Lennie’s suicide using his father’s gun can be seen as a direct example of how the physical size of West’s part of the set influence the character’s choices—it is as if they no longer have any. When West actually makes comments about Lennie’s suicide and Lennie’s mother happens to see him, the audience can see in her horrified reaction how much the media influences the events on stage. By having one part of the set take over the entire stage, O Beautiful warns us to be wary of how much we allow the media to literally enter our lives.Rubric:Response Paper [RP] Grading RubricThis criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeIdeas and Evidence5.0 pts”The RP is well- supported by the student’s own ideas as well as the best possible and well analyzed evidence. “4.0 ptsThe RP is mostly supported by the student’s own ideas and good evidence.3.0 ptsThe RP has some good ideas but may be too simple in its analysis of the included evidence.2.0 ptsThe ideas and evidence presented throughout the paper may not be fully explained, connected, or expanded upon.1.0 ptsThe RP may lack or completely fail in providing clear evidence and strong ideas.This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeOrganization5.0 ptsThe RP is exceptionally well-organized, following the provided guidelines.4.0 ptsThe RP may be adequately organized, mostly following the provided guidelines.3.0 ptsThe RP has some organization; however, it only follows some of the provided guidelines.2.0 ptsThe RP may have a semblance of organization; however, it does not clearly follow the provided guidelines.1.0 ptsThe RP is “organized” in such a way that the reader can barely follow the argument and does not conform to the guidelines.This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeVoice5.0 ptsThe voice is confident, positive, and convincing.
