Description

Read the Learning Resources on outlining and make sure you understand them before starting your outline for Paper 1. Putting thought and effort into your outline is an investment in the organization of your ideas for your paper. Using your thesis blueprint—the claim and three warrants—develop a full alphanumeric outline for your five-paragraph essay. Please note that it is fine if your analysis is more than five paragraphs.

Instructions for Week 3 Discussion:

Prepare your thesis and outline as a Word document.

Create a post in the discussion forum with a subject line that includes your name and the story you are working with (e.g., Tracy’s outline on “Recitatif”).

Review at least two of your peers’ outlines and post your feedback. Share your thoughts about their thesis and outline. Point out any areas of confusion or questions. This discussion will be initially run by students. However, I will be providing feedback as well at the end of the week.

Paper 1: What is Literature?
Due Date: Paper 1 is due at the end of Week 4, April
13.
Learning Goals
Synthesize the ideas you have considered in
answering the question, “What is literature?”
• Craft a thesis that clearly states your
interpretation of the meaning (significance) of
the story.
Support your thesis with evidence from the story
and base it on the literary elements
you have examined.
For this paper, you will develop an argument that you
began exploring in the Week 2 discussion, which
asked, “What is literature?” Your paper will answer that
question using the following format:
“This story is an excellent example of literature because
it provides meaning about X.”
Examples of how you might fill-in “X” include “children
and parenting” “the Black experience,” “gendered

“This story is an excellent example of literature because
it provides meaning about X.”
Examples of how you might fill-in “X” include “children
and parenting,” “the Black experience,” “gendered
double standards,” or another aspect of the human
condition that you can relate to and that
has a significant presence in the story. Note that you
may find that your selected story has more than one
theme (and this is fine).
The answer statement above is only half of your
thesis. Week 3 teaches you that the thesis governs
your paper’s analysis and development. The thesis is
constructed with two main parts: a claim and
warrants. For this paper, your thesis will
have three warrants.
Example:
Flannery O’Connor’s short story “A Good Man Is Hard
to Find” is an excellent example of a literary work
because it provides insight into the hypocrisy of
religious morality through character, setting, and
theme.
Week 3 shows you how the outline is a straightforward
way to list and organize your ideas to support
your claim with three warrants. Your task in drafting
this paper is to expand the levels of your outline in
more detail. Next, you will convert the bulleted items
from your outline into well-crafted sentences, and then
combine the sentences into well-organized, logical
paragraphs.
Your three warrants will use the literary
elements you explored and applied in Week 2. You may
choose any literary elements, and you do not have to
use three different ones. However, the body of your
paper needs to have at least three paragraphs (or
more). For instance, if you choose to only

this paper is to expand the levels of your outline in

Your three warrants will use the literary
elements you explored and applied in Week 2. You may
choose any literary elements, and you do not have to
use three different ones. However, the body of your
paper needs to have at least three paragraphs (or
more). For instance, if you choose to only
characterization, then you must have
enough information to develop at least three
paragraphs about how character/character
development elucidates your thesis claim. In Week
4, you’ll learn more about the development of body
paragraphs. In the example above, each of the warrants
exemplifying the hypocrisy of religious morality,
through the story’s character(s), setting, and theme-
will have its own paragraph.
Quoting Format: You will need to extract relevant and
effective quotes from your selected story to help
support some of the main points you are making. In
other words, they act as additional evidence. Any
direct quotes should, of course, be indicated by
enclosing the material in quotation marks. Since the
medium presentation for your story is in PDF format,
you will notice that your literature does not have stable
page numbers or clearly numbered paragraphs, as is
the case with many web sources. MLA states that you
do not need to include a page number for your in-text
citation as long as the quote is smoothly integrated and
quotation marks are used. Since your only source for
this assignment is your primary source (which is your
selected story), it will be clear to your audience where
the material is coming from.
However, you will need to include a Works Cited entry
for your story. This Works Cited should occur after

citation as long as the quote is smoothly integrated and
quotation marks are used. Since your only source for
this assignment is your primary source (which is your
selected story), it will be clear to your audience where
the material is coming from.
However, you will need to include a Works Cited entry
for your story. This Works Cited should occur after
your essay. If you need assistance with formatting this
entry, please contact me.
There are two ways you can integrate direct quotes. It
is suggested that you explore both ways within your
essay to demonstrate variety. One way is to introduce
the quote with a full signal sentence. A second way is
to have the quote be a fluid part of your sentence by
using a signal phrase. See the examples below:
Baldwin’s opening passage is woven with light and
dark imagery as the narrator rides the subway to work:
“I stared at in the swinging lights of the subway car,
and in the faces and the bodies of the people, and in
my own face, trapped in the darkness which roared
outside.”
NOTE the following: See the clear signal sentence
(that supplies the point you are making and indicates
that a quote will ensue), the colon that comes after the
full sentence, and the quotation marks.
Another way to integrate a quote is by having the
quote be a fluid part of your sentence using a signal
phrase–see the following (note that the colon is only
used after signal sentences, not phrases)
As the narrator rides the subway to work, he “stared at
it in the swinging lights of the subway car, and in the
faces and the bodies of the people, and in [his] own
face, trapped in the darkness which roared outside.”

Hints: Remember that your reader has read the story
and is familiar with it; extensive summary is not useful.
Rather, explain and analyze how meaning is derived
from the story by the author’s implementation of
literary elements. Note that the focus should be on the
story, not the author, so repeated references to the
author are unnecessary.
Summary vs. analysis: Be aware that a paper analyzing
a piece of literature is not a plot summary. Summary
should be brief, with only the details necessary to
identify the parts of the story required to
develop your paper.
Length and Format:
• 750-1,000 words (approximately three pages,
double-spaced). If you go over the
recommended maximum length, this is fine as
long as the additional words enrich the analysis.
• MLA style for document format and Works
Cited. See this MLA Style Demo video for how to
set up your document.
• See the Sample Paper for format and
organization.
