I have to write this essay on the theme of survival for English. It is two pages. My teacher has prompt questions to consider for the essay. They are How do traditional values influence her? How does Maya's strength influence her? How do I write a paper about this. I already know how I can answer these particular questions, but how would I go about writing a paper about a theme? All it says is that the Theme of Survival is the topic, and I don't know if it should be analytical or something like that or if there is another way to do this. All help is appriciated.
