9.5 “The Painted Door” Journal Response

Hello Grade 9’s,

You will be writing a critical journal response in regards to the short story “The Painted Door”. You will choose one of the following ideas to write about for your journal:

–       Write a diary entry from the perspective of Ann as she tries to cope with the guilt and sadness of losing her husband

–       Write a diary entry from the perspective of John right after he has witnessed his wife in bed with another man

–       Write an epilogue to the story. What happens to Ann and the farm? What happens to Steven?

This is a critical response so I will be marking you on spelling, capitalization, and your sentence structure. So, remember to read it over!
