Literary Analysis on Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” –
Instructions per the teacher :
After reading through the attached instructions, please complete a 3-5 sentence topic proposal that informs me of your chosen topic/author and why you chose it. You may choose any author explored throughout this entire semester. Upload this as a MS-Word document to moodle.
After you complete the topic proposal, please complete an annotated bibliography with five sources (including annotations). Upload this to moodle.
The final part of this first phase of the project is an outline. Complete a one-page outline that includes your thesis statement, at least three main points to be covered, and possible details/evidence for each point. I will upload an example to moodle that you can use as a template.
Literary Research Paper (25%): A literary-based research paper consisting of five to seven typed pages is to be submitted at the end of the semester. Prior to this paper, various other written assignments – a topic proposal, an annotated bibliography, and an outline – must also be submitted at announced dates. Topics must center on a respective writer and his/her work studied in class. Further, absolutely NO BIOGRAPHICAL nor REPORTS ON AN AUTHOR’S LITERARY CAREER will be accepted. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in your receiving an “F” for this assignment. Instead, your papers should analyze some element of a writer’s style as represented in a particular work(s). Further, textual evidence (i.e., quotes and paraphrased statements) must be incorporated from both primary and secondary sources, using MLA format, to support the student’s ideas.
