Project #82264 - paper 1

Paper about Theme    (500-525 words) 

Outline due Sunday, Sept. 20 at 11:59 pm; Paper due Sunday, Sept. 27 at 11:59 pm.

The Works Cited (in MLA formatting) page should include the primary source only.  Do not use secondary sources for this paper.  Also, see the folder for Paper #1 on the Course Content page which includes a sample outline.

1.  Write outline and thesis statement for Paper #1. (The finished paper should be at least 500 words, but no more than 525 words.)  Read the William Faulkner story in Literature, beginning on page 335. Your thesis should focus on the theme of the story, using the information in Chapter 19, “Theme,” especially pages 459-463.  As noted in the questions for discussion, the story may be interpreted as a coming-of-age story or a story about class conflict.  Choose one of those interpretations and present your argument to support your choice.  Also, review Chapter 5, “Writing Literary Arguments,” pp. 62-77.  Use the sample outline provided on the Course Content page in the folder for Paper #1.

NOTE:  The thesis is part of the introduction.  Usually, the thesis is the last sentence in the introduction.  For the outline, give me ONLY the thesis at the top of the outline.  Do not include the entire introduction.

2.  Provide the topic sentences for each body paragraph in your outline.  Each topic sentence should mention one supporting point for your thesis.  You will want to support your topic sentence in each body paragraph by citing passages from the story, at least one per paragraph (primary source).  You should use in-text documentation for these passages. 

3.  Also, you should include a Works Cited section at the bottom of the paper (not necessary for the outline).  List only the primary source, the story itself.  NOTE:  Find the MLA pattern in your handbook for a story or article from an anthology. 

4.  In addition, re-read my PowerPoint on “Writing About Literature.”

5.  Submit your outline by 11:59 PM on Sunday, Sept. 20, via the link “Submit Outline Paper #1” as an attached MSWord doc file.  Wait for feedback before you complete your paper.  I will return the outline ASAP.  

6.  Once you receive a grade, you don’t need to resubmit your outline; however, I may ask you to revise your outline.  Remember that if you delay in revising your outline (if I ask you to do so), your paper is still due according to the schedule below.

**When you receive your graded outline, write Paper #1.
