Assignment 2: Second Analytical Essay on Short Fiction

By Tuesday, October 1, 2013, submit your second analytical essay on short fiction to the W5 Assignment 2 Dropbox as an attachment in Microsoft Word.

This week you will have the opportunity to practice the skills of finding scholarly articles in the library and integrating source material—quotes, paraphrase, and summary—into your writing.

First, refer to the lecture on conducting research in the South University Online Library. Next, go to the library and find one credible, scholarly source examining the short story that was the focus of your essay for W4: Assignment 2. Avoid popular publications, such as magazines, newspapers, and other informational media that are not research oriented. 

Now, retrieve the essay you submitted to W4: Assignment 2 along with the feedback that you received from your instructor.  The next step is to revisit the short story and gather any passages from it that will add to your essay (unless your Week 4 essay already includes sufficient excerpts from the short story to substantiate your argument).

Open a new Word document and copy and paste only the introduction of the Week 4essay onto it. Review any feedback that you got about the introduction. Decide whether to revise the introduction based on the 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 source you found in the library or from the short story, such as quotes, paraphrase, and/or summary. Quoted material should never exceed 25% of the essay.  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 new 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 quotes, paraphrase, and summary, sandwiching this source material between signal phrases

Now that you have copied, pasted and revised all the essay’s paragraphs, go over the paper again to determine if it is properly arranged in APA style (from start to finish) and includes intext and reference list citations, also formatted in APA style. Next, use the spell-check tool in Word to identify misspellings. Finally, read through the essay one last time, looking for typos and glitches that spell check might have missed.

Submit the essay to the W5 Assignment 2 Dropbox.
