A narrative poem tells a story through verse. What was Francis Scott Key trying to communicate through the poem and to whom?
POINT VALUE: 20 point
One of the poetic devices used by Francis Scott Key in The Star-Spangled Banner is personification, or the transferring of human qualities or actions to inanimate objects. Find an example of personification in the poem and explain why you think Key would use personification.
POINT VALUE: 20 point
Another poetic device used by Key was imagery. Key used many adjectives to help create a clear image in his reader’s mind of what was happening. Go through the entire poem and find the words or phrases that Key used to “paint a picture” with words.

The American flag has been described as a “symbol of equal rights.” Do you agree with this description? Why or why not? Does everyone have the same reaction to the U.S. flag? Why or why not?
POINT VALUE: 20 point
What do people from other countries think about their national symbols? Do they feel the same sense of patriotism that many Americans feel? If possible, interview someone from another country to find out
Pata nahi yaar….itna lamba question hai…
Anecdotal questions…what are they?
To be rather honest, I have never heard of the term “anecdotal question” until last week as a Freshman in College. My teacher has asked us to come up with 50 interview questions for our Ethnic History paper (interviewing someone who has immigrated to the US from another country) and 10 must be anecdotal. She explained it, but I still do not clearly see why it is so different from a normal question. I am interviewing someone who immigrated from Portugal and cannot come up with any anecdotal questions. Help please? Thank you!
Also if you can help me with coming up more non-anecdotal questions to ask my interviewee, that would be fantastic!!
Anecdotal questions you can use to interview someone who immigrated from Portugal:
Explain the meanings behind colors using color psychology and ask what the colors in their flag means..
Non anecdotal question:
ask “what do the colors in your flag mean” without explaining the meaning or feelings associated with each color…
I hope you understand what i was trying to convey..
An anecdote is :
A short account (or narrative) of an interesting or amusing incident, often intended to illustrate or support some point. Adjective: anecdotal.
From the Greek, “unpublished items”
Examples and Observations:
“The writer makes his living by anecdotes. He searches them out and carves them as the raw materials of his profession. No hunter stalking his prey is more alert to the presence of his quarry than a writer looking for small incidents that cast a strong light on human behavior.”
“In [Ralph Waldo] Emerson’s later years his memory began increasingly to fail. He used to refer to it as his ‘naughty memory’ when it let him down. He would forget the names of things, and have to refer to them in a circumlocutory way, saying, for instance, ‘the implement that cultivates the soil’ for plow. Worse, he could not remember people’s names. At Longfellow’s funeral, he remarked to a friend, ‘That gentleman has a sweet, beautiful soul, but I have entirely forgotten his name.’ Perhaps most touching was his term for umbrella–’the thing that strangers take away.’”
(Reported in Clifton Fadiman, ed., The Little, Brown Book of Anecdotes, 1985)
“Anecdotal evidence involves the close examination of particular instances, often including the writer’s or researcher’s own experience with whatever he or she is studying. So, for example, a historian wishing to understand the origins and development of the Latino community in a small East Coast American city might use as a large part of his or her evidence interviews conducted with local Latino residents.
“Anecdotal evidence is in some ways at the opposite extreme from statistical evidence. . . . [T]he kinds of thinking based on anecdotal evidence is less concerned with verifiable trends and patterns than with a more detailed and up-close presentation of particular instances.
“Given the difficulty of claiming that a single case (anecdote) is representative of the whole, researchers using anecdotal evidence tend to achieve authority through a large number of small instances, which begin to suggest a trend. Authority can also be acquired through the audience’s sense of the analytical ability of the researcher, his or her skill, for example, at convincingly connecting the evidence with the claim.”
(David Rosenwasser and Jill Stephen, Writing Analytically, 5th ed. Thomson, 2009)
“Unfortunately, anecdotal evidence too easily sways many people’s opinions . . .. A well-known phenomenon is the ‘person-who’ effect that occurs when someone uses anecdotal evidence to discount a statistical generalization. For example, a smoker may dismiss the risk of smoking by noting that his or her father smoked two packs of cigarettes a day and lived to be 75. In this case, the person seems to ignore the larger body of evidence that people who smoke have a shorter life expectancy and an increased risk of health problems.”
(Bart L. Weathington et al., Research Methods for the Behavioral and Social Sciences. John Wiley, 2010)
“Sometimes I get the start of a story from a memory, an anecdote, but that gets lost and is usually unrecognizable in the final story.”
“From its beginning the anecdote has acted as a leveling device. It humanizes, democratizes, acts as a counterweight to encomium. Perhaps that is why it flourishes best in countries that, like Britain and the United States, enjoy a strong democratic tradition.”
(Clifton Fadiman, ed., The Little, Brown Book of Anecdotes, 1985)
