world literature English paper
At the end of the semester students will be asked to submit a 5-8 page research paper on a topic of their choosing. This essay will be longer than the first essay, but can build off of the same thesis you have presented earlier (NOTE: “building off of” is not the same as “copies word for word and then adds”). Students could look at larger issues in this essay and/or ways in which one issue brings several works together. Once again, we will discuss numerous examples as the semester moves on and I will provide a more detailed rubric after the midterm.
