Hide Assignment Information Instructions Instruction for Paper 2: How may a reader analyze a literary element common to two short stories so as to understand meaning in the stories? By writing this paper, you will answer this question and demonstrate the following skills for writing about literature: Analyze literature for a purpose. Distinguish digital or print materials through annotation in order to demonstrate reading and summary skills. Identify a literary element common to two short stories. Identify one to three examples from each story as evidence of the element. Write a thesis statement that clearly identifies the common element, and what the paper will discuss about the stories and the element. Write clear topic sentences for paragraphs that inform the reader what the paragraph will discuss. Develop paragraphs that support the topic sentences. Organize a comparison and contrast paper by presenting paragraphs logically and effectively, using one of two methods for comparison and contrast: story-by-story or idea-by-idea. Write sentences in Standard English that clearly express ideas. Demonstrate correct use of MLA formatting within the paper and on a Works Cited page. Explain your writing process clearly and coherently. Overview of the Workshop Format for Paper 2 In Paper 1, you developed a thesis statement presenting an academic argument based upon analysis of a literary element represented in a story. In Paper 2, you will develop a thesis statement presenting an academic argument based upon analysis of a single literary element common to two stoires; Paper 2 will present its argument in the form/format of comparison and/or contrast of the element’s function in the two stories. You will be using the feedback you received on Paper 1 from your instructor to help you clarify content and to correct errors in the draft for Paper 2. For Paper 2, review the selection of stories (see Week 1, Section 3) and choose another story to pair with the first or choose two new stories in order to write about a literary element, such as plot, character, setting, etc. Then, as you did for Paper 1, you will workshop the following areas in the weekly discussions. Week 5: Thesis. Your thesis statement should identify both stories and the literary element. You will work on the thesis, pattern of organization, and outline in the Week 5 discussion. Topic sentences for the outline will be reviewed, and you will also be applying the critical reading skills you’ve been developing throughout the course. Weeks 6, 7, and 8: Development. Paragraphs of the body of the paper will focus on analyzing how each story exemplifies the common element. During the discussions, you will review the following writing strategies to develop your paragraphs, which are more complex than paragraphs in Paper 1 because two stories (instead of one) are analyzed in comparison/contrast style to develop and present your ideas.
