ENG 278: Final Paper Assignment
In your (1500-word minimum) paper, you should make connections between at least two primary texts (novels, films, short stories) and make an argument about the connections and observations you make. You will incorporate at least two other secondary texts as research. Be sure to incorporate direct quotes from all of your sources into your essay and to analyze these quotes.
While we will not spend time workshopping the essay during class, I would strongly encourage you to work with a peer group often as you revise your paper. I encourage you to visit the writing center (it’s free!) during any step of your writing process (http://kutztownwritingcenter.wordpress.com/).
Also, don’t forget that I have five office hours a week. I would be happy to chat with you at any point in the process of writing your paper. Also, Monday 11/21 is a conference day, though at that point you should already have written a good part of your paper.
Consider the issues that have interested you during the semester: prison, body fluids, voice, freedom, name (or lack of), colonization, tradition, menstruation, etc.
I “collect” the essays on D2L. If you would like comments on your draft, please note this request in the comments of your submission. Otherwise, I will simply post a grade to D2L.
To submit the paper, follow these steps:
Please keep in mind the following guidelines:
