I am doing a critical essay on little red riding hood my teachers version.. its about the same she just changed some of the words ends like this:
'...the shadow followed. what was it? little red riding hood's clock slipped from her head and her heart began thumping wildly. she started to run as fast as she could through the dark forest, not even stopping to take a breath. then - SNAP! her foot caught in a brach, and she slipped.
i'v got you now! snarled a sinister figure in a hoarse whisper. it was the big bad wolf!."
and now i have to think up of a conclusion ... so far i got:
"In conclusion Little Red Riding Hood goes to visit her grandmother to give her a basket of treats that she made but then unexpectedly bumps into a scary aggressive looking wolf."
and it has to be at least another 5 sentences long. the teacher had given me some questions that i have to answer in the essay and at the conclusion i have to sum up my main points, arriving at a logical conclusion... i dont understand what she mean by that
soo can you pleaseee !! reply back with an answer and help me out here ?

If I understand this correctly, you are to rewrite the ending of the fairy tale with some specified elements. I think that the first thing to do is to make sure you can accurately integrate these ideas into the ending you are going to write. Since they are not specified, you will have to make sure this is going to be present. I actually think that the second issue that needs to be addressed is whether or not your ending is going to provide an empowering ending to the drama here or whether it is going to prove to be a fatalistic one. Simply put, when she encounters the wolf, does she escape, defeating him, or does she become a victim? I think that being able to determine what kind of ending you want is going to be critical here. Once you figure this out, I think that being able to integrate what is needed will help you construct an ending that will definitely exceed five sentences.
Can you show the rest of your essay that you've written? That would help to give some specific examples :)
