Write a 5-7 paragraph essay on one of the 5 topics listed below. Make sure you have an arguable thesis statement, three-four body paragraphs that support your thesis (contain examples, details, and quotes from the text corroborating your statements), and a concluding paragraph that ties up any loose ends. Be mindful of spelling, punctuation, mechanics, and grammar. Underline your thesis statement. Use academic language, and do not use the pronouns “I” or “you.” State your opinions objectively. Format the paper in MLA style and use MLA-style parenthetical notes to document your references to the text: (Smith 167). Be sure to introduce a quote, “quote verbatim,” then cite (King 126). Remember, to analyze is not to summarize. No outside sources allowed.
