Mr. Wink's English I Honors


What is Truth?

This semester we will be exploring the nature of truth through a variety of literary
and analytical lenses. For each unit, you will post a response to a prompt that relates
the content of the unit to our big question, "What is Truth?" In addition to your responses,
you will read and comment on the responses of others to develop a dialogue about our question.

Your short constructed responses should include:
1. a clear thesis
2. a minimum of two points of support
3. specific examples from our coursework with commentary
4. a conclusion
Your responses will be evaluated on ides, organization, and conventions.

Prompt #1: What is the "truth" of mythology?

The general term "mythology" encompasses the stories that a culture creates to understand
the truth of the world they live in and their place within it. From a personal standpoint, it is about
understanding who we are and where we fit in our world experience.
Based on our work first quarter, what is the "truth" of mythology?

Prompt #2: What is the "truth" about fear?

In William Golding's The Lord of the Flies, a group of English boys are trapped on an island
after their plane crashes. Forced to survive on their own, the boys face their fears of the
unknown in very different ways. Golding uses these boys to represent different ways society
deals with its own fears. Based on our reading, what is the "truth" about fear that Golding
wants us to see?

Prompt #3: What is the "truth" about dreams?

Over the course of this semester, we have explored a number of different types and pieces of
literature about dreams and have explored the nature of dreams through our research.
Based on our work, what do you see as the "truth" about dreams? As a part of your paragraph,
explain how you would support this using examples from our course literature. This should be the
thesis and plan for your dream essay.
