Read "The Tortoise and the Hare." What do the characters experience in the story? In a paragraph of at least three sentences, choose either the Tortoise or the Hare and write a parallel plot that tells a portion of the story from that character's point of view.
A Hare was one day making fun of a Tortoise for being so slow upon his feet. "Wait a bit," said the Tortoise; "I'll run a race with you, and I'll wager that I win." "Oh, well," replied the Hare, who was much amused at the idea, "let's try and see"; and it was soon agreed that the fox should set a course for them, and be the judge. When the time came both started off together, but the Hare was soon so far ahead that he thought he might as well have a rest: so down he lay and fell fast asleep. Meanwhile the Tortoise kept plodding on, and in time reached the goal. At last the Hare woke up with a start, and dashed on at his fastest, but only to find that the Tortoise had already won the race.
just write what you think the Hare or the turtles experience in what they think it would have looked like...pretty simple
get that emagination pumping! lol
i dont get it
Well a parallel plot is a plot in which each main character has a separate but related story line that merges in the end. I think you should write from the turtles perceptive of the race, since he won I think it would be easier to write about.
