Read Chapter 19 and 20, pick one topic that interests you and write a one page analysis on the topic.
Daily Assignment Guidelines
• All daily assignments must be typed, double-spaced on white paper.
• Students must use a reasonable font (Bookman Old Style, Book Antiqua, Palatino, Arial, Georgia, Bell MT).
• Students must use a reasonable font size (12-point).
• The student’s name must be on the top left-hand corner.
• The title must be centered 1 ½ inches from the top of the page.
• A good analysis will consist of two paragraphs, incorporating one or two quotes from the text. (You must have at least one quote.)
• At the bottom of the page, the student must include an MLA citation of the work under analysis.
• Miscellaneous considerations:
• The assignments are worth ten points.
• Many times I will direct the response, but most often the assignment will consist of “What argument is the text making?”
• No response should be longer than one page.
• I want to give you plenty of leeway with these assignments (I tend to be very generous with the “content” grade), but you should treat them with respect and
sobriety: they constitute a high percentage of your overall grade.
