Worksheet: “Short Story and Essay as a Medium for Understanding the Role of the Wife in Women’s Family and Community Experience”
Are the themes or perspectives found in a piece of fiction any less real than those found in an essay? In either case, a perspective is shared to convey a message about a topic. You can gain insight into a topic or experience and combine it with your own to make meaning and broader connections. In this week’s Assignment, you explore social change themes related to the role of the wife in a family and community context.
To prepare for completion of this worksheet:

How do they support their perspective on the role of “wife”?
Consider what comes to mind when you think of the term “wife” based on your own experience, family, and culture.
What are some key differences you notice between the essay and short story style?
