Course Project, Part 1:
This is covering the Civil War to present day American Literature. For this project you have the freedom to explore any writer or time period/movement. The topic must be focused with a specific thesis. The focus must be on your own ideas, analysis, reactions to the writer or literature.
Include the following:
- Topic (a specific statement. Eg. I plan to write an analysis of the impact of And the Band Played on or the American government’s response to the AIDS crisis or “I want to explore how Upton Sinclair’s novel The Jungle continues to impact worker and animal rights in America today.”
- Thesis: Write a 1-2 sentence statement of the main point of idea of your project.
- Write a short outline of the major points you will cover (how you will support your thesis).
- Identify two scholarly sources (cite in MLA format).
This is an outline for an upcoming 6-8 page paper. If done well, I’ll pay you extra to write the Part 2 paper. Upton Sinclair’s novel The Jungle would be a good choice but if you have a better idea and want to run with that I’m okay with that too. Thanks for your help.
