As a rule of thumb, each essay answer should be approximately 2 ½ pages, double spaced.
Your answers should be based on class notes, discussions, and the text. No outside sources will be accepted.

Provide concrete examples from the readings (direct quotes) to support your answers.
Use MLA style (in Spanish)*. You may use the following TEMPLATE. (See in the template how to quote poems.)
This paper should have a good thesis, one that is specific and focused, which you state in your introduction. Make sure your thesis is arguable: could a reasonable, intelligent, person who has read the text on which your writing disagree with your assertion at first? One way to think of your thesis is to make sure that you can phrase it in the following terms: “In this paper, I will argue that…” Note the use of the verb “argue”–not explore, or discuss, or examine, but argue.
Make sure your thesis is about the how the primary text works, not about the socio-historical context. Remember you are in an English class, and here we are concerned about literature. Use the the socio-historical context to deepen your understanding of the text, not the other way around.
The Book being refered is attached called “When you reach me”. The topic is how children’s literature deals with adult real life situations and how the kids in these books take on these roles.
Essay on Street Harassment: Current and Promising Avenues for Researchers and Activists by Dr. Laura S. Logan.

Must include 3 to 4 textual choices.

Asgmt. 2: Emerson – Transcendent Nature
Due Sun, May 22 by 11:59 PM – No Late
Assignment 2: In the short selection from Nature, Ralph
Waldo Emerson writes, “To speak truly, few adult
persons can see nature. Most persons do not see the
sun. At least they have a very superficial seeing. The
sun illuminates only the eye of the man, but shines into
the eye and the heart of the child” (2).
Is he suggesting that as adults, we lose the purity and
innocence of childlike wonder? After reading the selection, write
a one to one-and-a-half (1 – 1.5) page paper with a clear
thesis, body paragraphs, and conclusion in which you
explain what Emerson might mean. Create a clear thesis
statement–review the PDF on Writing Strong Thesis
Use one or two direct quotes from the text, properly
formatted and cited, to support your paper. Use the PDFs
on MLA Style so that you are quoting properly. Maintain
critical distance: avoid “‘”‘”we” “us” “our” – do not mention
yourself or make modern-day comparisons.
DRAW SPECIFICALLY FROM THE TEXT FOR YOUR
QUOTES. DO NOT REFERENCE OUTSIDE SOURCES.
required citation: “Bloom’s How to Write About Shakespeare’s Tragedies” by Gleed, Paul, Bloom, Harold; Date: 2011
Use MacBeth, Harold Bloom’s “MacBeth” in Bloom’s How to Write about Shakespeare’s Tragedies, and one other peer-reviewed source to discuss one of the topics listed in Bloom’s How to Write. Your additional source may be about the play in particular or the Elizabethan era in general.
This final project will require you to read a primary and secondary source, analyze both, evaluate both, and bring it together to act as support for your writing. All options require strong critical engagement with both the focal primary text(s) and with the required source(s).
General Requirements for the Project:
All submissions must:
use the assigned secondary source(s) in addition to whatever primary texts they discuss (and these sources must be used, actually cited, in the essay, not just listed in the works cited at the end)
be 1000-1200 words long
must be original to this class and assignment (no submissions from other courses and or previous forums are allowed)
be in MLA format and use MLA style citations (see The APUS Library MLA Guide for MLA formatting models; most of you sources will probably need to use the “Journal Articles” model)
In addition to the chosen play and assigned corresponding secondary source, you should use one additional peer-reviewed source to back up your persuasive thesis. BE CAREFUL that you do not create a cut and paste essay of information from your various sources; your ideas are to be the focus of the essay, and the research should supplement and support your ideas.
Write an argumentative literary analysis of the literary text “In Camera” by Nawal El Saadawi. Need to Have a CLEAR, ORIGINAL THESIS statement that states your argument on the text, and credible research is required to back it up. In addition to that, you must also build upon three outside sources from Jstor scholars as well as other scholars.
– One scholar which researches the historical period or the respective literary movement
– Two essays of literary criticism for the text are being analyzed by other scholars
*One source may be substituted with a theoretical text
Paper also must include identification of at least 1 literary technique in order to enhance the analysis/argument.
Prompt: Drawing on Sandra Cisneros’ “Never Marry a Mexican,” write an essay where you examine how racism is dealt with in the story.
Notes: Be sure to write for an audience unfamiliar with the text. That means slowing things down and explaining the ideas very carefully. Provide a short summary of the work in a separate paragraph after the introduction. The main idea (thesis) should inform the information you include in the summary.
Assignment. Write a 750-1250 word essay doing a literary analysis explaining the significance of a single passage, scene, or episode in relation to the whole of one of the works of literature (or excerpts) from the course. Talk about the whole work, but focus on the one passage, scene, or episode to get at that. Note that you should be writing about a work of literature, and not the Veith book.
To be clear:
1. You are not looking for a “lesson” to learn from this story. Some of these literary works provide easy ways to try to give an essay sermon to the reader, but that is not our purpose. Here, we only want to look at the story itself. If you start writing about anything not directly related to the story, then you are getting off topic.
2. You are not trying to agree, disagree, applaud, condemn, or make any value judgments on the text.
3. You simply need to pick one scene or passage from your chosen work. Then you need to explain how that one scene or passage impacts the whole work. Why is it important to the story? You might even consider how the story would be different if that scene was missing.
You should refer to the story, and cite the text. You should write your paper in MLA format.
Explanation. One of the foundational skills in reading literature is reading a text closely and drawing meaning from that reading. For this reason, this essay will allow you to engage deeply with a particular text. A close reading of a text “unfolds” the text, explains in detail how the work communicates to the reader. Such a reading will require you to understand all aspects of the work and to have a grasp of the meaning of individual parts of the work in relation to the entire work. You are not, however, striving to be exhaustive in your “explanation,” but rather you should strive to be selective in considering only those details that are significant to your own thematic understanding of the piece of literature.
