Spring 2018: S. Rose
 
Textual Analysis
For this essay, you will be building on the skills you learned from the last essay and in this course so far. Since you have already responded to a reading in a critical manner in class and in our discussions, this essay will closely read and critique a text using more than your own opinion. You will seek outside support for your position/argument.
Close reading describes, in textual analysis, the careful, sustained interpretation of a text. Such a reading places great emphasis on the particular over the general, paying close attention to the details of an essay and how they play a greater role in the global scheme.
For your essay, you will want to use AT LEAST one form of popular secondary research for support You want to make assertions about the text, based on the elements we’ve discussed throughout the semester.  You also want to consult OTHER SOURCES about the existing conversation. By including these other sources, you can be sure not to alienate your audience, which is again, very general and could include folks who disagree with your point-of-view. In essence, we will be researching and incorporating credible sources, narrowing details and organizing logically. You will need to include at least ONE PRIMARY and ONCE SECONDARY source in your essay.
 
Objectives and goals:
 

  • Generate research skills: clearly state your critique of the work while synthesizing it with your own
  • Continue to focus: what details should you include and what should you leave out? How can you make sure your critique is persuasive without alienating your audience?
  • Use CONCRETE AND SPECIFIC examples and quotes to support your position and cite those to avoid plagiarism.
  • Focus on revision skills: look at your paper with a critical eye and make it better.

 
Paper Length: no more than THREE full pages,
Source Requirement: TWO: one primary, at least one secondary. The secondary source MUST be from a credible and vetted source.
