remains the most popular example of a morality play. After reading the play and doing some additional research on its themes, storyline and characters, your skills of creative writing will now be employed. This assignment requires you to:
- rewrite and compose a contemporary version of the story/morality play in one of the following forms – a children’s story book, a fairy tale, or a modern short story
This new interpretation could include (but not be limited by) contemporary images and/or moral concerns; personification and interaction of vices and/or virtues; and themes or lessons for a modern day “Everyperson”.
This assignment should be typed and proofread (4-5 pages in length). The final choice of how this assignment will be presented (i.e. a fairy tale, short story) is strictly up to you. Think originality and creativity – images, graphics, Powerpoint/Prezi presentations, video links, etc. are always encouraged to help tell your story. Some additional research may be needed (remember to document your sources in a bibliography). Early submissions are always accepted. Please be aware of spelling, punctuation, grammar, capitalization, etc.
