You have chosen or been assigned a particular text to analyze. Using the critical reading skills practiced in class, you must formulate a thesis statement that presents a unique and specific interpretation of the text, and you must defend that interpretation throughout your paper.
In order analyze effectively, you will need to engage in close reading, or reading “between the lines.” This means that you will be choosing representative passages and carefully deconstructing them, highlighting connotations that may not be immediately obvious to fellow readers. Each new close reading should further convince your reader that your overall interpretation of the text (the thesis statement) is valid.
Your paper must include the following:
An introduction that provides relevant background information and ends with your thesis statement
A minimum of four body paragraphs, each of which addresses a particular subtopic that relates to your thesis statement
A minimum of three references from reliable, academic sources, all of which are cited at least once in the paper
A conclusion that reaffirms your thesis statement and addresses wider implications
Formatting, citations, and references must all adhere to APA style
Page length – approximately 3-5 pages, not including title and reference pages
