Discussion 1 – MONSTER by Walter Dean Myers
This question will touch on North Carolina Standard Course of Study Objective 5.02 which requires you to study and express your mastery of the characteristics of literary genres – in this case a screenplay. In answering this quesion you will hopefully be able to prove to me and the world that you
- can evaluate what impact genre-specific characteristics have on the meaning of text.
- understand how the Myers’ choice and use of a genre (sreenplay) shapes the meaning of the literary work, and
- will prove what impact literary elements have on the meaning of the text.
Here’s the question: How does the way in which this story is told – as a script interjected with personal comments from Steve and flashbacks – influence our perseption of the story?
