Thesis Statement: Formulate a clear thesis statement that directly presents your position or the narrowed and persuasive point of your essay.Do not use a purpose statement, a quotation, or question as your thesis.As a way to lead into the thesis in the introductory paragraph(s), consider previewing a curious problem the course’s reader presented in various essay or a difficult or telling quotation from an authoritative article.
Textual Support:Obviously, you’ll be using examples from the articles you choose to analyze, but you’ll also want to make connections to the current research you’ve assembled and if possible other ideas discussed in class.You may use previous course writings in this essay with your instructor’s permission and if they add substantively to your existing interpretation rather than replace it.
Research Sources: For the purpose of supporting your points or introducing differing perspectives, integrate smoothly, with proper attribution, quotations (very sparingly) and paraphrases of at least three sources, two of which must be academic, peer-reviewed articles or books.Wikis, dictionaries, or encyclopedias will not count as sources for support or rebuttal.If you are unsure about how to use such information, please consult your instructor on proper usage.Avoid “padding” your essay with needlessly long quotations. Rather use only what you need for the force of its insight or its astute rhetorical performance you wish to reproduce fully.Be sure to introduce your quotations with appropriate lead-in phrases or the author’s name.
Organization:This type of paper should not rely on summaries, extended narratives, or other descriptive strategies.In other words, reviewing a controversy, or reviewing one’s experience with it, is not establishing a position on it.While you do want to provide a bit of context for the issue and related articles in which ideas are found, this should be done quickly and concisely so you can move on to using those texts to support your larger analysis.The essay should present the scope and significance of the controversy’s main contentions, the role language plays in those ideas, the implications of the various arguments on the matter, and engage differing perspectives, all while establishing your position.
Although a variety of organizational patterns could work for this paper, the research paper, in general, has to orchestrate many voices and ideas, but is a result of your direction.Try to setup this logical and readily apparent direction with an outline, however rough it may be, before writing so you can see toward what main point you are taking the reader and how you might best arrive there. What should the essay prove or demonstrate to a reader who may disagree with its point to be as convincing as possible?
General Writing Guidelines:
- Avoid using the personal first-person (“I” or “we”) unless it becomes too awkward, and do not use the overly-familiar second person (“you”) in this essay.The focus is on textual analysis and making a larger argument rather than on oneself or the reader, so personal experience and a narrative tone are not appropriate. (Exception: Question #9 and related questions or topics.)
- Avoid relying on large, block quotations for support because your ideas are most important.
- Your paper should be edited and in APA format with a title page and References page.Note that the entire paper should be double-spaced, prepared with the proper font, and use APA style citations.
- Are there differences in how men and women speak to each other?If so, what do you think accounts for these differences?If not, explain.
- Examine how certain forms of language use can sustain power relationships.For instance, what linguistic features or characteristics can we see that help explain a dominant group’s or person’s position of power? Here you can use contemporary or historical examples.
- What does it mean to be literate or considered literate?Describe how you became “literate” to argue for, or against, a form of literacy training.You could compare your experiences to others, like Malcolm X, to show how some forms of such training can be more productive and effective than others.Research current practices in literacy training in American public schools to argue for the most effective method.You may use your own experience
