The rule of thumb in most academic essays is roughly an equal number of research sources as there are pages in your essay.

midterm essay is an analysis of an issue that troubles, fascinates, enlightens, or illuminates something within your chosen text(s). You should compare or contrast the ways at least two separate academic disciplines analyze this topic. While I will not give specific provocations (or questions) to you about where to concentrate your writing, I hope to offer many questions and issues during the lectures and class discussions.
<

<

My only designations are that you should write about the material that we have read, viewed, and discussed in Units One, Two and Three. Thus: The Silence of the Lambs, Psycho, and Dexter or our readings from Natural Born Celebrities, and any concepts discussed in the discussion sections or lectures within those areas.
<

<

Example questions/topics:
<

<

You may compare and contrast the way literary analysis would analyze Darkly Dreaming Dexter differently than a film analysis would be of the TV series. How does Dexter’s “heroic” vigilantism bleed into the real world?
<

You may compare or contrast the film analysis of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho with the medical or psychological diagnosis of Norman Bates. Is it possible to learn from the film’s fiction to allow us to see a “real world” perspective on serial killers?
<

How would a criminal justice perspective on Hannibal Lecter differ from a social psychological profile? How does our academic knowledge change our viewing of the film?
<

Specifics: The midterm should be three to four pages in length, double-spaced, with one inch margins, and normal pitch fonts. Longer writing will not garner you a better grade, so use the format to show your precision, focus, and support clearly within the space allowed. The work should be, otherwise in MLA or APA format, with a thesis or argument.

Resources: Your essay should include academic research from at least two different academic disciplines. The rule of thumb in most academic essays is roughly an equal number of research sources as there are pages in your essay. Thus, you should have three or four academic sources. Your paper may follow MLA or APA guidelines.

We are reading works in which charles chesnutt and mark twain use the strategies of realism to subvert or challenge the plantation mythology developed after the civil war to romanticize and glorify the antebellum, slave-owning south.

We are reading works in which Charles Chesnutt and Mark Twain use the strategies of realism to subvert or challenge the Plantation Mythology developed after the Civil War to romanticize and glorify the antebellum, slave-owning South.

In this entry, you will analyze a strategy used by Charles Chesnutt in ONE of the following works: “. The Sheriff’s Children”.

FORMAT: Think of your entry as a mini-essay. Assume that your reader may not have read the work you are discussing. In your first paragraph, you should introduce the author and the work you will be discussing. State specifically what you see as the author’s intent or purpose and what type of satire he is using. Conclude the introduction with a thesis asserting HOW the author uses realism to challenge plantation mythology.

Using the SIEL method of paragraph development (State, Illustrate, Explain, Link), discuss one quote in each paragraph and clearly establish how the quote supports your thesis. Paragraph 4 should be your conclusion.

For this assignment, you will use Sherman Alexie’s “Indian Education” as a mentor text. This means that you’ll write your own story, but it will look like Alexie’s version.

Alexie’s version starts in 1st grade and ends in 12th grade. You will receive full credit if you write about kindergarten through eighth grade. Please also include a short section on the beginning of ninth grade. If you have repeated a grade, please write about it twice. Please also include an introductory paragraph and a concluding paragraph.

Many students who have done this assignment before find that they can’t remember each year. Don’t worry about going too in-depth – many of Alexie’s sections are on just one specific incident. But if you still can’t think of something to write, mix fact with fiction. Your readers won’t know the difference if you make it believable.
