Wednesday, April 14th Draft 1 – Peer Review. April 19th – 21st Film: Ma View En Rose (continue working on essays) Monday, April 26th Final Due – Wednesday, April 28th Final Celebration & Party The Essay: 1250 – 1500 words. For your final project, the creative research paper, you will choose a topic that stems from the major work(s) you’ve encountered this semester. In your essay, you will argue your position on an issue that stems from your topic choice.  You will direct the argument to a specific audience.  You will also decide on your purpose for arguing and on the argument’s form and you will, of course, be required to use the text(s) as your primary source(s). Note: keep in mind the term ‘argument’ can mean different things depending on the paper you write. Finally, you will define what ‘creative’ means for your essay. The Creative Element: This is up to you and can take any form so long as it extends the traditional notion of a text based essay. Some ideas: 3- dimensional essays that combine text, image, and video; live performance; performance art; art that you’ve done that connects to your essay; song; interpretive dance; your cat. It is up to you but must be present in the process. ESSAY REQUIREMENTS: 1. Limit a topic: the best topics are ones that originate out of your own reading of a work of literature & attempts to make a connection to the fundamental question posed in this course: What is art? Re-read Jeanette Winterson’s essay, “Art Objects”. NOTE: limit the scope of your essay to the major works we’ve examined this semester—Art Objects, District 9, Tsotsi, Night and Fun Home. Below are suggested topics to help you start but it is up to you define the nature of your essay: • Thematic connections, links, and clues between and about characters & themes in major works discussed this semester. • Ask yourself what the function and significance of each character is. Make this determination based upon the character’s history, what the reader is told (and not told), and what other characters say about themselves and others. • A discussion of a work’s characters: are they realistic, symbolic, historically-based? • A comparison/contrast of the choices different authors or characters make in a work • A reading of a work based on an outside philosophical perspective (Ex. how would a Freudian read Hamlet?) • A study of the sources or historical events that occasioned a particular work (Ex. comparing Alison Bechdels’ Fun Home with the original Greek myth of Icarus.) • An analysis of a specific image occurring in several works (Ex. the use of moon imagery in certain plays, poems, novels) • A “deconstruction” of a particular work (Ex. unfolding an underlying racist worldview in Elie Wiesel’s Night) • A reading from a political perspective (Ex. how would a Marxist read William Blake’s “London”?) • A study of the social, political, or economic context in which a work was written — how does the context influence the work? • Help: 2. Write a Proposal: 500 words max. The proposal is the promise you make to yourself and your audience. One of the purposes of writing the proposal is to help you think through your ideas about your creative research paper. You can try out your tentative ideas and discover ideas as you write the proposal. Often, writers find that they need to get ideas laid out on paper to be able to work with them effectively. By explaining your tentative plans to me, I can help guide you toward a more successful final paper. Also, in writing a proposal, you are learning to write a very common and practical form of argument. Monday, April 12th: Proposal DUE – copy & paste to discussion board & bring 1 copy to class for peer/professor review. Your proposal will address issues including the following: 1. Select the book(s) or film(s) you plan to examine. 2. Decide upon the specific issue your paper will address. 3. Discuss the reasons why this topic is important enough to write a paper about. 4. What creative elements will you consider using? 5. Your (tentative) position/thesis on the issue. You can state your position as a working thesis/claim. 6. A brief explanation that supports your position, i.e. why do you think your position is right or true? What reasons support your position? 7. Ideas for the format of the argument and for the purpose in arguing.  You also might include analysis of argumentative strategies you are considering. 8. A list of questions you need to answer in your paper. (What will people reading your essay expect you to address?) 9. Any questions you have for your instructor about the assignment or about how to deal with your topic. 10. A list of sources which will serve as a representation of the research you have done so far, and of the discussion on your topic that is forming in your mind. Your list will include approximately eight sources, and you will cite these sources using correct MLA format. All research must be relevant in some meaningful way to the issue you are concerned with. 11. An audience analysis which answers the following:  Who is your intended audience? (Specify the characteristics of your audience.)  How would you define them in terms of age, economic and social class, gender, education, and so forth? What typical attitudes, stances, or biases about your topic does this audience hold?  What in their background or daily experiences helps explain their point of view?  What are they likely to know about your topic?  How might they be uninformed or misinformed about it?   How would they like to see the problem, question, or issue resolved, answered, or handled? Why? That is, what personal stake do they have in the topic?  In what larger framework–religious, ethical, political, economic–do they place your topic? That is, what general beliefs and values are involved? 12. A realistic schedule taking into consideration the due date for the first draft of this longer research project. 13. Come up with a format that best organizes and highlights the material in your proposal.  For example, you may want to use headings and bullets to organize your proposal.  You may want to include a Cover Sheet, which discusses the items above.  Think about how you can most clearly organize your material to convince the reader that your topic is viable, timely, creative and important. Criteria for Grading: • Limiting a topic • Using library or electronic sources to fulfill research objective & proper use of paraphrasing & quoting sources • Articulating a thesis that demonstrates a logical connection between research and argumentative techniques. • Organizing the text to be congruent and coherent in regards to the subject and purpose of the paper. • Using sources in the text to substantiate the thesis • Using standard MLA documentation.  let me know how can i hav the same writer and please have in min that i dont speak inglish very well do not put somuc vocaulary in my essay thank you
