To continue from yesterday’s post :Catching up with Jane: She is Tolerable: My writing assignment for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was a mash-up.
In honor of our getting through Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, we are going to create our own mash-up writing project.
Mash-up research: Again, once you have decided on your literary victim, you must then do research to make your mash-up as accurate as possible. SO, whatever element you opt to weave into the story—you must research and weave into the real text. ( 3 or more pages) Obviously you won’t be doing a whole novel or short story so you will need to really choose the part carefully. Be sure to italicize the “classic” text.
Story Research: You must also do research on whatever piece of literature you choose. Background, history, and a literary analysis are all elements you need to research. If it is a novel, you will need to find to do a very small portion/chapter.
Author Research: Once you choose a short story, play, or novel, you will do research on the author. Once you complete your research from at least 2 sources, you will write a brief “History” or snapshot of the author. (1 page)
This project along with the research and writing is also a creative project. This means, you can create a cover, illustrations, or photos. If you are not an artist, and you have to pull items to use, then please keep a separate works cited for illustrations and photos.
****Remember: The text/writing must fill the page requirement. Illustrations, photos are a nice touch but are not to be used to “burn space.”
