Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
The attachment in the link is an EXAMPLE PAPER. Please do not copy it in any way, it’s just so you know my professor’s standards
PAPER TWO should be a literary analysis based on one of the elements of fiction, or it should be a research paper that uses one of the stories to springboard into a cultural or social topic. The literary analysis paper REQUIRES OUTSIDE research, AND you should include quotes from the original story (YOU SHOULD INCLUDE AT LEAST THREE OUTSIDE SOURCES—DO NO USE WIKIPEDIA). This paper should be at least THREE pages long.
You are free to come up with your own topic or thesis, but you should clear it with the instructor first by attaching a copy in the PAPER TWO THESIS AND PLAN OF DEVELOPMENT Assignment submission folder found under the Assignments tab.
BE SURE YOU HAVE READ CHAPTER 14 ON PAGE 654 BEFORE YOU BEGIN WRITING.
