I NEED 5 sections! 4 of them its for a discussion I need those only in 2 or less pages, and Section 5 its an essay and I need it in 6 pages please
follow the instructions.
SECTION 1: Background
Written in 1993, Parable of the Sower begins in 2024 in a California that is both unrecognizable and frighteningly realistic. The first few chapters of
the novel quickly reveal the world in which Lauren Olamina is living, where the climate crisis and capitalism have disempowered and
disenfranchised most of the population. In response, some communities have built walls around their neighborhoods and found ways to survive on
limited resources. However, most people are living outside those walls, without the protection of their neighbors or the police. Lauren hints at
some of the violence brought on by such mass poverty, but also implies that the government might be looking at extreme and abusive policies to
“solve” the problem.
For the most part, this novel is easy to read, but there are a ton of themes and social criticisms running through Lauren’s journal entries and plenty
of places where she leaves it up to the reader to connect the dots. Make notes in the margin and take notes on a separate piece of paper. Start
tracking the characters: who they are, how they are related, what you think of them and why.

Write and post a brief (1-2 paragraphs) response.

Afrofuturism:
In 1993, Mark Dery coined the term

peoples and their cultures play a central
role in
the creation of that world.”

In the interview in the back of the book,
Butler says “it’s a much more complex
problem than a simple increase in

crisis? What are the larger social effects in
the novel of environmental crisis? In what

Intersectionality: Race and Identity

Please answer the questions below In Parable of the Sower, Butler does not shy
away from her criticism of historical
American
racism nor does she give us a vision of a
future
America less-divided by race and other
traditional identity markers.
How does Butler bring race into the story?
Or, what role does race (and racism) play in
this near future that Butler has presented? How does racial identity intersect with other topics in
the text, like gender, climate change, income
inequality, sexuality, and disability?
Choose a specific character (other than Lauren)

intersect to teach us something about (in)equality
and social (in)justice.

Family,
Family and family dynamics play a large
role
in the novel, from Lauren’s mixed-family
home to the communities she grows up
with
and then creates.
How does the concept of family change
throughout the novel, and how do those
changes parallel how society (and the
notion of
community) changes? What does this say
about the underlying aspects of family,
including heredity (DNA, but also legal
rights
and responsibilities), loyalty, shared history,
and survival?
What “family” does Lauren prioritize?
What do other characters value most about
family and/or community?

paraphrasing, and summarizing, but also
really nerd out on the language, symbols,
plot devices, character traits, etc.

word, line, or passage from the story and
analyze how it reflects the theme

for 2 sources

, Write a thesis-driven essay responding to the topic question, using examples from the novel and your research to support
your analysis.
Suggestions
As much as possible, use the work you’ve already done and build on it. Go back through your discussion posts and choose a topic you wrote about that you’d like to explore further. Each topic has a corresponding essay question listed.
You also have the option to choose a new topic that you haven’t already explored.
Your secondary research can be other articles about the novel, the author, the setting, the form (epistolary), the history, the language, or any of the embedded texts (intertextual references), etc.
Get creative with your search terms and databases. Some especially helpful databases for literary analyses, language, or intertextual references are JSTOR, OED, or Gale Literature Resources. If you choose to look at cultural/political/historical background you may want to look at a more traditional database, like EBSCOHost or ProQuest where you can type in your topic such as “company towns” or “Yoruba” or “bread and circuses.” I recommend a combination of literary and non-literary sources.
You should avoid summarizing your research findings; instead, try to integrate “the facts” with your presentation of “the fiction”. In other words, use evidence from the text to determine the organization of your essay: focus on the novel first, and use the research as further support for your thesis.
Be careful to distinguish between the words of the text and the meaning you apply to it.
Please don’t feel the need to use the same highly academic voice that the “experts” use! I’m assuming it was a challenge getting through any literary criticism you may have read and I tend to find that style very off-putting. Why can’t they write in plain English so we can better and more easily appreciate their insight? Because they are writing to impress other English geeks! This is not a concern we share with them. We are writing for ourselves and our classmates. Plain English is best.
Requirements
Typed 6-8 pages (minimum 1800 words), Times New Roman, 12 pt font, 1’ margins
At least two sources from the SCC Digital Library
Don’t forget to include an original title which leads your reader into your essay
MLA citations (including a Works Cited page)
Evaluation
An introduction that provides background information on your topic
A clearly stated thesis
Sufficient and relevant evidence
Well-organized paragraphs
Careful analysis of evidence
Mechanics (sentence boundaries, spelling, grammar)
