- Afterward, type one paragraph discussing your reaction to Angelou’s technique of using imagery to re-create a scene from long ago. Your paragraph should be approximately eight to ten sentences long. Consider her style and tone; is she using a lot of big words to write above the reader’s understanding, or does her motive seem to be an attempt to draw the reader into her world? Also, briefly describe a similar memory from your past that may be equally special. As you write your paragraph, focus on using different types of sentence patterns and using clear, creative nouns and active verbs instead of linking verbs. Focus on appealing to your readers’ senses as well.
- To enter the discussion board, click on the discussion board link (i.e. click on the title for this assignment); once the page reloads, click on the button that says “Create Thread” and enter the discussion board. Do NOT upload your paragraph as a Word document; instead, actually write your paragraph in the “Message” section of the discussion board and then hit the “submit” button. Also keep in mind that you are NOT using MLA guidelines for any of the discussion boards, so for these assignments, you don’t need to include the four-line header, page number, indented paragraph, Times New Roman font style, etc.; MLA guidelines should only be used for your writing assignments (except for the email and business letter assignments). You do, however, need to pay close attention to grammar and punctuation for these assignments.

Grammar and Creativity Hand in Hand The paragraph below is an excerpt from Maya Angelou’s autobiographical book I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. Attempt to pick out the subject and verb in the sentences below by placing parentheses around prepositional phrases and double parentheses around dependent clauses, which are clauses that cannot stand alone. Then underline the subject of the sentence once and the verb of the sentence twice. Most importantly, take note of Angelou’s specific choices of subjects and verbs and how the details in the prepositional phrases contain imagery – choice of words that appeal to the five senses of touch, taste, smell, sound, and sight. “The weeks until graduation were filled with heady activities. A group of small children were to be presented in a play about buttercups and daisies and bunny rabbits. They could be heard throughout the building practicing their hops and little songs that sounded like silver bells. The older girls (nongraduates, of course) were assigned the task of making refreshments for the night’s activities. A tangy scent of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and chocolate wafted around the home economics building as the budding cooks made samples for themselves and their teachers.” Sentence 1: The prepositional phrases are “until graduation” and “with heady activities.” The subject is “weeks” and the verb is “were filled.” Sentence 2: The prepositional phrases are “of small children,” “in a play,” and “about buttercups and daisies and bunny rabbits.” The subject is “group” and the verb is “were.” The prepositional phrase “about buttercups and daisies and bunny rabbits” appeals to the sense of sight and perhaps even smell. Sentence 3: The prepositional phrases are “throughout the building” and “like silver bells.” The subject is “They” and the verb is “could be heard.” The prepositional phrase “like silver bells” appeals to the sense of sound. Sentence 4: The prepositional phrases are “of making refreshments” and “for the night’s activities.” The subject is “girls” and the verb is “were assigned.” Sentence 5: The prepositional phrases are “of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and chocolate” and “for themselves and their teachers.” The subject is “scent,” and the verb is “wafted.” The prepositional phrase “of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and chocolate” appeals to the sense of taste and smell.
