Essay Guidelines:
Length should 3 1/2-4 full pages, double spacing. It is not necessary to submit a cover page. Use one-inch margins, standard font, and MLA format. If you have any questions about MLA let me know or check the resources on the internet.
i A title is your first chance to engage your audience. Make it engaging.
Avoid plot summary. Do not summarize the action. Offer opinions about what you have read. Every writing situation is an argument in which you try and persuade your readers. Have an opinion about what you have read and work towards proving it.
Logical development: Use good essay form. Begin with an introduction and thesis. Develop your ideas and use supporting evidence. I do not have to agree with you to earn an A. I will be looking for supporting evidence for your claims though. Back up what you say. Last but not leasta a strong conclusion.
Using secondary sources is NOT a requirement for this writing assignment. Use your own thoughts and the text itself as your main sources. If you cite lecture notes, your classmates or any other source make sure and give proper credit.
