Research paper

Select a work from our course readings this semester. Read it thoroughly. Then, either online through Google or Google Scholar or in the physical library, do research to find an article that analyzes the work you chose. Do not choose a Sparksnotes/Shmoop/etc. type of website or article. Yes, those are geared towards students, but I want you to find an author’s individual analysis, not an explanation of what you’re expected to know for an English class. This may take some digging. You may end up finding a book chapter, a journal article, or a thoughtful blog post to discuss. If you are at a complete loss, please tell me well before the due date. I may be able to help point you in the right direction.After selecting your article, read and annotate it. You should understand the author’s main points about the text.Now you’re ready to begin drafting. The paper should contain the following components:An introduction, summary, and explanation of the work you chose from our textYour analysis of the work you chose from our course – Does the author use literary devices, like foreshadowing or metaphor? How and where? You might discuss the setting or the characters, or whether or not the text is mimetic or didactic. Is there any historical significance to the text? Was there an event going on that impacted the text or the author in some way? Etc.An introduction, summary, and an explanation of the article you foundConnect the article to the text and give your opinion on its validity. Is the author completely off the mark or accurate in their analysis? Why or why not?The document at the following link gives a basic literary research paper outline: (Links to an external site.)This essay is lengthy. If you take a look at our syllabus, the college requires a 6-8 page research paper. If you include all of these components, you should either meet or get very close to six pages.Citations: English 101 is a prerequisite for this course, so I expect you all to know MLA formatting. If you need to brush up on it, the Purdue OWL MLA site is a good resource: (Links to an external site.)Whenever you quote, paraphrase, or summarize, you will use in-text citations to indicate the source. Additionally, I expect you to include a Works Cited page at the end of the essay, where you will cite the work from our course as well as the article you locate, whether you found it online or elsewhere. You can find citation examples of online articles, journal articles, etc. on the Purdue site.


Tasks:Read the lessons for Historical Context, The Victorian Era, American Poet: Walt Whitman, and American Authors: Kate Chapin and Edith Wharton.Participate in the Discussion 6: Whitman (Graded).Mini-Essay and Discussion 6: WhitmanWriting Prompt:  Walt Whitman is considered by many critics to be one of the first truly original American poets. He certainly started something new that set him apart from all the poets that came before him. Choose an element that you find interesting in one of the poems from Leaves of Grass or Drum Taps assigned in this module. For your new discussion post, write a short essay of at least 300 words that points out the element and explains why you find it so interesting. Keep in mind that this new post is a Gordon Rule assignment, meaning that the quality of your writing as well as the length will be considered during the evaluation/grading process. Then, reply to at least 3 of your classmates to get full credit for this assignment. Replies can be 30-40 words.Mini-Essays and Discussions:The Mini-Essays (your “new thread” in the discussion) are Gordon Rule assignments. Therefore, you should use your best writing skills when you work on these assignments. Each Mini-Essay and Discussion assignment has three basic requirements:Prepare: Read the literature that is assignment and take note of its discussion question. Be careful to answer the discussion question for each Mini-Essay. You work needs to be “on topic,” as the saying goes.Write: Adhere to the length requirements for the Mini-Essay and the discussion portion of the assigment. “New Threads” should be about 300 words in length. As you write, Blackboard will keep track of your word count, so it’s easy to know where you are. After you submit your new thread, you will be able to read the other students’ posts. Reply to at least three other students to earn full credit for the assignment. Replies should be 30 – 50 words. Also, don’t forget to include the Honor Code (See Ground Rule #4 in the syllabus) at the end of “New Posts.” Be sure to separate it from the post itself. Keep in mind that this is a short essay assignment, not a paragraph assignment.In-text Citations: If you use a quotation from the literature in your mini-essay, please place an in-text citation (also called a parenthetical citation) immediatly after you close the quotation marks and before you place a period for your sentence. That way, anyone in the class (including me!) can easily find the quotation in the literature if necessary. If you’re not sure what to place inside the parentheses, there is some instruction in the handouts for Essays #1 and #2. And, you can always message me for help. Do not use outside sources for this course. Write about your own ideas and focus you support tightly on the literature itself.Grading: The number of posts and replies you need to get credit are shown in the Grading table below.  Keep in mind that the grades in the chart assume that your “new thread” (mini-essay) and “replies” satisify the length criteria in #2 above. Also, because these mini-essays are Gordon Rule assignments,  the grade could go up or down depending on the quality of your writing.
