Question

Week 1 - Assignment 1 Discussion

Autobiography

By Monday, June 26, 2017, post your autobiography in the W1 Assignment 1 Discussion Area.

When you write your autobiography, let your classmates know who you are. Where are you living? What is your major? What are your career goals? What are some interesting things about you? For instance, what are your hobbies? What do you do when you just want to get away from it all?

Since this is a composition and literature course, how about including some information about what you like to read? Do you ever write for fun? If so, what sorts of things do you like to write? End by sharing at least two goals you hope to achieve in this course.

By Tuesday, June 27, 2017, read and respond to several of your classmates’ autobiographies. Let them know what interesting people they are and tell them why.

Note: This is an ungraded assignment but participation in it helps to establish your attendance in the course.

By Wednesday, June 28, 2017, complete and post your assignment to the Discussion Area.

By the end of the week, comment on at least two of your classmates’ submissions. Remember that your replies should help your classmates expand, clarify, defend, and/or refine their work. You can ask questions and use declarative sentences to express your thoughts. Be sure to be honest, clear, and concise, referring to specific words and passages from your classmates’ work. Always use constructive language, and avoid negative language; work toward using a tone and spirit of intellectual curiosity and discovery. Your responses to your peers' writing should include specifics if you are attempting to make a point.

Respond to the following:

Choose one poem from among this week’s assigned readings except “The Chimney Sweeper,” which was used as an example in this week’s lecture. Post a response of at least 150 words.

Identify a number of key images in the poem which you believe are vital to understanding it and provide a detailed discussion of how those images function in the poem.

Do the images work together to form a coherent pattern?

What ideas or feelings are conveyed by the images the author has selected?

How do they contribute to the overall meaning of the poem?

Remember to provide evidence for your claims in the form of excerpts (a word, phrase, or line, as appropriate) from the poem. Quotations, paraphrases, and summaries used in the assignment should be arranged according to APA rules of style, and in-text and reference citations should be provided, also formatted in APA style.

By Sunday, July 2, 2017 comment on at least two of your classmate's submissions using the peer review questions provided below.

The essay assignment for this week is to compose a paper of at least 750 words in which you offer your interpretation of a key theme in one of the assigned poems. You may choose any poem from the reading list except for “The Chimney Sweeper.” If you wish, you may base your paper on the analysis you began in this week’s discussion question. If you get “stuck,” read your chosen poem again with a pen in hand so you can make notes. Do not hesitate to share your initial ideas with your classmates and the instructor.

You should open your essay with an introductory paragraph that engages the reader and presents your poem and author. End your introduction with a thesis statement that interprets one literary element of the poem (such as theme, imagery, symbolism, or characterization).

Each paragraph following the introduction should present specific aspects of the poem that help to illustrate and support your thesis. Make sure to quote and analyze specific lines that support your argument.

Include a concluding paragraph at the end that summarizes the main points of the paper and explains the significance of the thesis.

You may use this sample student paper as an example. If you need help formulating your thesis, please contact your instructor.

You do not need to do outside research for this essay. Instead, look at the sample student essay on “The Chimney Sweeper” and use your textbook to find other models.

Apply APA rules of style to source citations as well as the overall formatting of your essay. Be sure to include a title page and a References page.

Use this APA Citation Helper as a convenient reference for properly citing resources.

This handout will help guide you in the details of formatting your essay using APA style.

You may create your essay in this APA-formatted template.

When responding to your peers please answer the following questions:

Locate the paper’s thesis. Is it obvious or unclear? Does it establish an interpretation of a key theme from the poem? Is the thesis as specific as it needs to be?

Is each paragraph organized around one key point? Do topic sentences clearly indicate the focus of each paragraph?

Does the author support each main point with direct quotations from the poem that are analyzed and explained? Do you have any suggestions for improvement?

Where do you disagree with the author’s analysis? What aspects of the poem are left unexplained?

Week 2 - Assignment 2

Assignment 2: Revised Analytical Essay about Poetry

By Saturday, July 8, 2017, submit as a Microsoft Word document your revised analytical essay about poetry to the W2: Assignment 2 Dropbox.

This week you will have the opportunity to revise the essay you wrote in Week 1 based on the feedback and suggestions you received from your instructor and peers.

Retrieve the essay you submitted to the Assignment 3 Discussion Area in Week 1 along with the feedback that you received from your instructor and peers. The next step is to revisit the poem and gather any passages from it that will add to your essay (unless your Week 1 essay already includes sufficient excerpts from the poem to substantiate your argument).

Open a new Word document and copy and paste only the introduction of the Week 1 essay onto it. Review any feedback that you got about the introduction. Decide whether to revise the introduction based on that feedback from your instructor and/or new ideas you have had since you first wrote it. Then consider if the introduction will be strengthened by adding material from the textbook or from the poem, such as quotes, paraphrase, and/or summary. Remember that quoted material should never exceed 25% of the document. Make any changes that you wish.

After that, or if you do not wish to revise the introduction, copy and paste the next paragraph to your document and review it the same way you did the introduction. Do this with all paragraphs in the paper through the conclusion. As you work through this process, substantiate and reinforce (when necessary and appropriate) your argument at key junctures by including quotations and summaries.

Now that you have copied, pasted, and revised all the essay’s paragraphs, use the spell-check tool in Microsoft Word to identify any misspellings. Make sure you have applied APA rules of style to source citations as well as the overall formatting of your essay. Did you include a title page and a References page?

Use this APA Citation Helper as a convenient reference for properly citing resources.

This handout will help guide you in the details of formatting your essay using APA style.

Read through the paper again to fine tune the flow and look for typos and glitches that spell check might have missed.

Name your essay Lastname_FirstInitial_ENG1300_W2A2 and submit it to the W2: Assignment 2 Dropbox by Saturday, July 8, 2017.

Week 3 - Assignment 1 Discussion

Assignment 1: Glass Menagerie Discussion

By Wednesday, July 12, 2017, complete and post your assignment to the Discussion Area.

By the end of the week, comment on at least two of your classmates’ submissions. Remember that your replies should help your classmates expand, clarify, defend, and/or refine their work. You can ask questions and use declarative sentences to express your thoughts. Be sure to be honest, clear, and concise, referring to specific words and passages from your classmates’ work. Always use constructive language, and avoid negative language; work toward using a tone and spirit of intellectual curiosity and discovery. Your responses to your peers' writing should include specifics if you are attempting to make a point.

Respond to the following:

Tennessee Williams provides extensive and detailed stage directions for The Glass Menagerie. Readers are given a very specific account of the play’s setting.

Review the stage directions and, in your discussion post, identify the most important aspects of the setting.

Then, consider how these elements contribute to the central ideas of the play.

Does the setting symbolically reflect the conflicts faced by the characters?

Does it constrain and limit the characters?

Does it represent their desires and motivations?

Use APA rules of style for quotations, paraphrases, and summaries as well as in-text citations and references. Quoted material should not exceed 25% of your response.

Use this APA Citation Helper as a convenient reference for properly citing resources.

When you are responding to the posts of your classmates:

Discuss any similarities or differences you have with the stage elements identified.

Did their conclusions help you to see The Glass Menagerie in a different light?

Elaborate on any key points.

Week 3 - Assignment 2

Assignment 2: Analytical Essay about Drama

By Saturday, July 15, 2017, submit your Microsoft Word essay to the W3: Assignment 2 Dropbox.

Compose a 750-word paper in which you write a literary analysis of The Glass Menagerie. Feel free to use the basic APA formatted template.

Select and respond to one of questions from the list below.

The characters of The Glass Menagerie are limited and unable for various reasons to obtain what they desire. Select one character from the play. What does he or she desire? What prevents him or her from achieving it? How does the play resolve the conflict between desire and reality for this particular character?

Throughout the play, Amanda refers to Tom’s hope for a life other than the one he has as selfish. Do you agree with this assessment? Does Tom’s departure at the end of the play represent an unethical abandonment of his responsibilities, or a necessary choice to escape the controlling nature of his mother?

Audiences and critics of Williams’s play have often focused on the glass menagerie and understood it to be the central symbol of the play. What is the meaning of the menagerie? How does it help us to explain and understand Laura Wingfield?

Please note:

Your answer to the question you select should serve as the thesis of your paper. This thesis should be included in an introductory paragraph.

The paragraphs following the introduction should support and defend this thesis by analyzing and discussing specific examples and quotations from the play.

Make sure to focus on the various literary elements we have been discussing throughout this course.

Please format your paper using APA style. You may create your essay in this APA-formatted template, or use this for guidance.

Use excerpts from the play to support your ideas. Include in-text and reference citations using APA style. Use this APA Citation Helper as a convenient reference. At this point, there is no need to use “outside” sources to complete this essay. For now, your evidence should consist of experiential knowledge (what you have learned throughout your life) and the play’s text. Quoted material should not exceed 25% of the document.

Name your essay Lastname_FirstInitial_ENG1300_W3A2 and submit it to the W3: Assignment 2 Dropbox by Saturday, July 15, 2017.

Week 4 Assignment 1 Discussion

Assignment 1: Point of View

By Wednesday, July 19, 2017, complete and post your assignment to the Discussion Area.

By the end of the week, comment on at least two of your classmates’ submissions. Remember that your replies should help your classmates expand, clarify, defend, and/or refine their work. You can ask questions and use declarative sentences to express your thoughts. Be sure to be honest, clear, and concise, referring to specific words and passages from your classmates’ work. Always use constructive language, and avoid negative language; work toward using a tone and spirit of intellectual curiosity and discovery. Your responses to your peers' writing should include specifics if you are attempting to make a point.

Address the following:

Select one of the stories assigned by your instructor. Post a response of at least 150 words.

Identify the point of view used in the narration.

Discuss how this point of view affects your reading and interpretation of the story.

How might a different type of narration (point of view) alter the meaning of the story?

Provide at least two specific examples from the text to illustrate and support your argument.

Guidelines

Point of view refers to the perspective from which the story is narrated. Various points of view can be present in literature. Points of view include:

First person: the story is told from the perspective of the narrator, who is usually the protagonist, using first-person pronouns—I, me, or we.

Second person: the narrator addresses readers as “you,” which gives the audience the feeling that they are in or a part of the story.

Third person omniscient: the story is told using third-person pronouns, such as he, she, or they, and the narrator is godlike in his or her ability to see and know everything (omniscient).

Third person limited: the narrator tells the story using third-person pronouns, but the narrator is not all knowing, for his or her knowledge is limited to the perspective of one character.

Point of view has an impact on how we understand the story. First-person narrators are often unreliable as they are telling the story from their own subjective perspective. In fact, a first-person narrator may fail to notice things that a careful reader will identify. Similarly, a third-person omniscient narrator gives the illusion of complete knowledge or understanding, suggesting to the reader that the story is a realistic account of life.

Remember that claims in all parts of the assignment should be substantiated by excerpts from appropriate sources. Use APA rules of style for quotations, paraphrases, and summaries as well as in-text citations and references. Quoted material should not exceed 25% of your response.

Post your response in the Discussion Area.

Brainstorm to identify a literary element in the text that you would like to explore, such as character, theme, symbolism, imagery, setting, or point of view. Then, develop a preliminary thesis that offers a specific interpretation of this element.

If you have trouble coming up with a focus or thesis, contact your instructor, who will help you brainstorm.

Next, develop an introduction that states your original thesis (main claim) and briefly describes the story and author you will be discussing.

The body of your essay should support and defend this thesis with specific evidence taken from the text that you discuss thoroughly and thoughtfully. Remember that no more than 25% of the essay can consist of direct quotations.

Your essay should end with a concluding paragraph or two, summarizing the key points of your paper and explaining the significance of your interpretation. When finished, the paper should be at least 1,200 words long (approximately 4 double-spaced pages).
