‘The Slump’ assignment
After having read both a poem and a short story about aging and changing realities, let’s apply some of our own creative writing skills to help our baseball player remember that all hope is not lost. Respond to ONE of the following:
1. Imagine that you are a sports writer for a newspaper. Write a column for sports fans contrasting the baseball player’s past and current performance. Use specific details from the story; you can make reasonable, logical embellishments when needed. (200 word minimum)
2. Imagine that you are a fan of the baseball player. Write a supportive letter giving him advice on how he should get out of his slump. Use specific details from the story; you can make reasonable, logical embellishments when needed. (200 word minimum)
3. Write a song or poem that celebrates baseball. Be sure to include baseball diction. (30 line minimum)
