In 400-500 words, compare and contrast the structure of Kathryn Schulz’s “The Really Big One” and Annie Dillard’s “Teaching a Stone to Talk.”
How does each writing approach the narrative arch (exposition, rising, climax, etc.)? Does one have more exposition than the other? Does the climax of one
story happen sooner than the other? Does one include the use of flash backs?
No other sources needed.
