Purpose:
This is a response writing assignment, where you will analyze and reflect on one of the texts that we’ve read so far this semester and discuss how that text is truly American. Remember that this is your own interpretation of the text, and any interpretation is fine as long as it’s backed up by the text. Outside sources aren’t necessary for this essay but you may use them to help in your analysis. Below are assignment details to guide you.

Goals:
Produce a clearly organized response essay that interprets and analyzes a short story or poem for its American qualities.
Generate a clear thesis statement about the text’s American qualities.
Use textual evidence from the text to back up your points.
Revise and edit to achieve a clear rhetorical purpose and to meet audience needs.
Learn the standards of MLA formatting.

Assignment: Overview
Introduction: In the first paragraph you will introduce your reader to the topic and the text. First, explain what qualities you think define American literature. What makes a text truly American? What are some typical values, themes, settings, plot points, symbols, character traits, etc. that we look for in American literature? What are some important aspects of our American culture that bleed into our artforms?
Next, introduce your reader to the text which you think exemplifies these American qualities. Give them enough context to set up your analysis. You can include relevant background information about the author, when the piece was published, and a short summary, but remember to include a thesis statement that discusses how this particular text shows those American qualities.Analyzation: For the body paragraphs, you will expand on the claim put forth in your thesis and provide evidence from the text. How does the piece of literature encapsulate America or American qualities? What are those American qualities in detail? How does this text match up with your understanding of what makes America American? How does the theme, setting, characters, plot, symbols, etc. reflect our culture? Remember to stay focused, it’s best to choose one or two qualities to focus on, instead of trying to cover a ton in such a short response. Remember to use textual evidence by using quotations and paraphrases.

Purpose: Next, analyze why the author wrote this piece. Put yourself in the author’s shoes. What do you think the author’s purpose in writing this was? Was it to inform, inspire, teach? Is there a moral, philosophical, social, or political issue they are trying to tackle? Does the time-period that the author wrote the text inform the content? Have our values changed since then? You can pick more than one of these to tackle. Explain why you think this.

Conclusion: Lastly, conclude your essay by summarizing your main points and showing how they fit together to prove your thesis. Then take it a step further by answering some of the following questions: is this text relevant to Americans today? How so? What might a reader learn from it? Should this text be included in the study of American literature, why or why not?

Length: ~800 words
Formatting: This essay should be formatted as a formal essay according to MLA standards. Include a Works Cited page with a citation for the poem and any outside sources you used.

This week, you began with Akala’s video orienting us toward a critical reflectio

This week, you began with Akala’s video orienting us toward a critical reflection on the British history and values that you witnessed in Week 1 with the London Olympics. Akala pointedly asks:
“which of the traditions of the people on this island [United Kingdom] would you be drawing on and identifying with? The one that promotes and reinforces race and class oppression and explains away the genocide of empire as a civilized mission? Or the one of relentless activism that secured for us the very fragile freedoms we have today?”
In your journal this week, please reflect on the forms of activism that you see in both The History of Mary Prince and William Blake’s “Chimney Sweeper” poems. Choose specific moments in each work (that is, directly quote and analyze) that offer insight into how the author promotes or enacts a critical response to the wrongs of slavery.

explicate one poem or song of your own choosing. You must provide the text of the poem along with a reference showing where it came from. If you choose a poem in a different language, be sure to provide a translation.
Focus on the poem’s themes, but be sure to describe how the writer has worked the theme into the text. What is the dramatic situation in the text? Who is the speaker? Has the poet used powerful figurative language? What other poetic techniques are used to convey any important ideas or emotions? How has the poet used sounds and sound effects like assonance, consonance, alliteration, rhyming? How well did these techniques work for you as a reader? For a poem that originally appeared in another language, feel free to use any expertise you have in that language to explain the use of sound by the poet.
The evaluation criteria for Essay 2 are spelled out in the Explication Essay Rubric below. I strongly recommend that you use the Rubric and check out the criteria to evaluate your efforts before turning in your final publish.
Explication essays tend to run short, so aim for an essay between 600 and 900 words, or 2.5 to 3.5 pages (excluding any appendix providing the text of a new poem or song).

Describe the dramatic struggle between the two world options (younger innocent boys vs. a bully group of older teenagers) in the movie “Stand by Me”, 1986, by director Rob Reiner.
Teacher’s instructions: Define the two options and who represents them. Describe the struggle as you rely on concrete examples from scenes from the film. Don’t forget that the film has a position, message, and idea expressed in the struggle and who wins it in the end.
Remember the principles of writing we learned – title (the creative one you choose), introduction, body of work, and concluding paragraph.
