Book 1 Eragon (Interpret *and* evaluate your text)

ENGL 102 Paper 2 Assignment Sheet Genre: Analytic/persuasive thesis-driven essay. Length: At least 8 pages. Research Required: At least 9 scholarly sources, plus at least one primary text of your choice. As with Paper 1, you are welcome to use more sources if you wish. Description: Paper 2 asks you to engage in cultural analysis. The aim is to sharpen your media literacy, rhetorical awareness, art appreciation, close reading, and critical thinking skills with regard to images and language. During this unit, we will go over the basics of analyzing different types of texts—“texts” in this context simply meaning cultural artifacts. Using the skills we will hone together, you will compose an in-depth analysis of at least one text of your choice. In the event that you choose a short genre such as song lyrics, you may opt to include more than one sample; for example, you could analyze an entire album by one artist. Your analysis should be informed by outside research. We will cover introductory methods of analysis for the following types of texts in class. Please choose one to focus on for this paper. * Fiction * Poetry/Song Lyrics * Drama/Film (including short works such as music videos) * Art (paintings, photographs, etc.)/Comics/Graphic Narratives * Advertisements (print, video, etc. Please avoid political ads for this assignment.) * Children’s Literature * Video Games Interpret *and* evaluate your text. This will go in the direction of Ballenger’s “question of value” (154). Sample thesis: Frozen is an important film because it suggests that we should expand the definition of “true love” to include nonromantic love, a message too infrequently heard in our culture. As with Paper 1, your research may combine sources that relate to your topic directly (i.e. books/articles about Frozen), those that relate indirectly (i.e. books/articles on the historical propensity to define “true love” exclusively as romantic love), and those that aid you in analyzing your chosen genre (i.e. books/articles on film analysis, children’s media, and so on). Sample topics: * Interpret the novel Sula by Toni Morrison. * Evaluate the film The Avengers. * Interpret and evaluate a collection of video ads from Coca-Cola. Note: If you wish to analyze a type of art note covered in class—say, music—please let me know. We can make it work. Requirements: Your essay must have the following in terms of content and mechanics. Content * A clear thesis that demonstrates insightful, critical thinking and adheres to one of the options previously listed. * A well-crafted introduction and conclusion (5-10 sentences each). * Body paragraphs that generally follow the PEAS model (5-10 sentences each). Close reading, or the “A” portion of PEAS, will be key in this essay. * At least 12 in-text citations referencing at least six sources (minimum three scholarly) that actively and effectively support your thesis. * Detailed analysis of your chosen text(s) using methodologies discussed in class. Mechanics * Logical organization of ideas, including transitions. Headings are optional. * Well-introduced, blended quotes (no orphan quotes!). * Correct use of MLA format in terms of heading, page numbers, in-text citations, etc. * At least eight full pages (not including the WC). It cant be 6 pages of plot summary, you do need to use exsaples from the book but the last writer tried to give me 6 pages of summary
