Pronoun Case is really a very simple matter. There are three cases.

  • Subjective case: pronouns used as subject.
  • Objective case: pronouns used as objects of verbs or prepositions.
  • Possessive case: pronouns which express ownership.

Write a narrative using the chart above. You are to use three singular subject pronouns, three singular object pronouns, and three singular pronouns that show possession.

In addition, you are to use at least one plural subject, object, and possessive pronoun (three total). You will be graded on using 12 pronouns.

Make sure you highlight the pronouns and draw lines indicating antecedents.

Ex. Sally went shopping on Sunday. She purchased a dog collar.

Your narrative should be about an event, in which you were a part. You will be graded on the correct use of pronouns and the antecedents you identify. Make sure you don’t have any ambiguous pronouns.

Option #1

Choose a song that fits at least two of the traits of American Romanticism. Provide the lyrics to the song and explain what they mean. Be sure to explain the entire song. Describe how the song fits two traits of Romanticism. Design cover art for your song, reflecting your understanding of Romantic ideas….any medium is acceptable.

Option #2

Find five quotes and explain how each quote fits two traits of American Romanticism. These quotes can be historical or modern. Give credit to each quotation. Each explanation should also provide support for each trait you list.

What is American Romanticism?

….Literature that emphasizes imagination, feeling, individualism, and enthusiasm for nature

….Expression from discontent arising from the Industrial Revolution

You can apply this thinking to contemporary topics; literature is often timeless, having meaning in all time periods.
