Assignment: You will construct a 3-5 page paper analyzing EITHER one of the readings we have done thus far in They Say, I Say OR a subject of your choice. Remember that in analyzing the piece, you must first break it down in your background summary introduction and then use your thesis to comment whether or not the ideas in it are beneficial or not. You will be including quotes for the first time, so MLA in text citation is going to count towards your grade. You will also need a Works Cited section toward the end of the piece to show me the source you used to analyze.
