Presidental Election

English 102 – Bartholomaus Essay 1 Assignment We have been talking about public discourse and various problems with it. The upcoming national election provides us an especially convenient opportunity to examine public discourse because nothing is more central to the national conversation than a presidential election. The focus of this essay is to analyze our public discourse surrounding elections: look at what the candidates say, what the politicians say, how the media covers the candidates and issues, and how social media and other outlets express the public reaction to the election process. Your thesis should offer a specific insight or critique about current national public discourse. Do not just summarize what you hear but analyze it and make a point about it using the insights provided by Deborah Tannen, information in mainstream news articles, and your own reasoning. For this essay, you are required to use one or both of the Deborah Tannen articles we read as a class and at least three news and/or opinions articles from mainstream news sources; I would imagine that in most cases you will need more than three news articles. You must follow all MLA rules for in text references and the Works cited page. The focus should be on analyzing the public discourse by and about the candidates and election; the focus should not be on arguing who to vote for (though is okay if your overall discussion reveals that as long as it’s not your central focus). I think we can all assume that our public discourse is very problematic and not focus on making that argument. Instead, you might analyze the role of social media in making us informed/uninformed; or you might discuss how to get informed and take the election seriously despite the problems with discourse; or you might discuss a problem with public discourse threaten the American democracy (or the opposite: that it’s all much ado about nothing); or that the media needs to change in some specific way; or anything else that offers analysis of public discourse and politics. Write your essay with academic discourse in mind: reasonableness and logic of thinking; the importance of evidence and reasoning; open-mindedness; standard, correct English; documentation of sources. To be a successful academic writer, you must be able to accomplish all of these goals at the same time. You must cite your sources according to MLA rules. Be sure to have internal references for every quote and paraphrase as well as a correct works cited page. Minimum 4 sources. The essay should be 4-5 typed, double-spaced pages plus the works cited page. 100 points. You can ask questions, brainstorm together, or post other relevant comments in the essay one discussion forum.
