Paper 1 Project: Due Monday, October 20 in class
Assignment: write an MLA format argument paper on Hard Times or Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town of about 800 words. External sources are welcome but optional. E-mailed papers will not be accepted.
- The paper must address one of the discussion questions listed on this blog and make an argument with examples and reasons.
- The paper must quote from the text, at least twice on every page.
- The paper must address and make an argument focused on the text; it must not simply describe an external issue or your feelings about the text.
- Refer to the “Files” heading on this site for an example of MLA title pages. We’ll discuss this in class as well.
- Grading will be on four criteria: MLA formatting; grammar; structure; argumentation & evidence.
