• Week 3 – Assignment
• Literary Analysis Draft
• Required submission of draft in the classroom AND to the Ashford Writing Center:
• Prior to the end of Week 3, submit your Literary Analysis draft to the classroom AND to the Writing Center (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. The Writing Center will include a tracking number beginning with “ntp” at the top of your reviewed paper that you will need to input in a Week 4 discussion.
• For your Week 3 assignment, you will put together a rough draft of your Final Summative Essay. This draft will help you sketch out your ideas and allow you to experiment how to use your research in your essay.
• For your draft, use the working thesis you wrote for your Week 1 assignment. Include this working thesis in your Introduction paragraph. Then write body paragraphs that help build on the working thesis.
• For example, let’s say my working thesis is, “In the Metamorphosis, Gregor Samsa turns into a giant ‘dung beetle,’ symbolizing the conflict he experiences with his job, his family and his own sense of self-worth.”
• My body paragraphs will address this working thesis in the following order. First, I will write a few paragraphs that analyze how Samsa’s job causes him conflict and adds to his dehumanization. Then, I will write paragraphs that describe his family life and how it causes him conflict. Finally, I will finish up with a couple of paragraphs that explain Samsa’s lack of self-worth and how that causes him to feel unworthy.
• My conclusion will address how all those factors, the job, family and self-worth, all contribute to Samsa’s sad condition.
• In each body paragraph of your draft, try to incorporate your research that you described in your Week 2 assignment. You may need to read over your research materials several times to find the most appropriate quotes that bolster your thesis. You can also add in more of your research when you revise your essay, but it’s good to try to get relevant quotes embedded in your rough draft.
• Keep in mind that building a paper is like building a house. First, you set your foundation, which is the thesis statement. Then you build your walls, which are the body paragraphs.
• Finally, you install the roof, which is your conclusion. After you finish this draft and get feedback from your instructor, you can start filling in those walls and the roof by developing your essay, revising and editing. I like to think of proofreading as the paint that covers the house, the final step to creating a solid, attractive structure.
• So, for this assignment you are building the frame of the house. Make sure you write a specific working thesis for your foundation. You can find a sample thesis in the sample final summative essay included in this class. Then, build on your working thesis by framing in the walls. Finally, add a conclusion that frames in the roof.
• You will then be ready to revise. Keep in mind all great novels are not just written, but they are rewritten and rewritten and rewritten. Revision is key to creating an A plus essay.
For your Week Three assignment, you will write a two and a half page draft (excluding the title and references page) of your Week Five Literary Analysis. Be sure to review Part B upon completion of Part A. The draft should contain a working thesis (which you wrote in the Week One assignment), an introduction, at least three body paragraphs, and a conclusion. Be sure to include some paraphrases (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and quotations (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. of the reference material in your Week Two Annotated Bibliography. You should use your research to help you develop and support the thesis.
• Copy and paste the writing prompt you chose to explore in Week One at the beginning of your draft (this will help your instructor see if you focused well on the prompt).
• Restate your working thesis after the copy-and-paste prompt.
• Develop your working thesis based on the feedback you have received. Again, the thesis should offer a debatable claim in response to one of the prompts on the list.
• Analyze the literary work from the approved list of prompts chosen in Week One that pertained to your selected topic and include the three key ideas developed in the Week One Proposal.
• Focus on one primary text.
• Include references from at least two secondary sources identified on your Week Two Annotated Bibliography. More sources are not necessarily better.
• Apply your knowledge of literary elements and other concepts in your response to the prompt. Reference the List of Literary Techniques .
• Avoid any use of the first person.
• Do not summarize the plot.
