Narrative Essay Prompt:
Imagine how you would feel if the government banned your favorite TV show. You would probably find it terribly unfair if the authorities took your show off the air. In this unit, you have been reading fiction and nonfiction narratives—imagined and true stories—about characters or real people who do not live in fair, or just, societies. All these selections have something in common: like the gladiators of ancient Rome or the people of North Korea, the characters or people in these texts are the victims of unfair laws and unjust rulers.
Think about the principles of an open and just society, and contrast them with the rules of a closed and unjust society. Then write a fictional narrative (or story) about a character who is seeking justice in an unjust society. Model your story on one of the texts you have read in this unit.
