Abstracts (a 1-2 paragraph summary) of your intended final projects are due this
Abstracts (a 1-2 paragraph summary) of your intended final projects are due this week.
For this assignment, you will write two paragraphs that “sell” your final project and explain the direction of your research.
In paragraph one, you will explain why you chose to research a particular author and book. Remember, you should be writing on a book of your choosing.
In paragraph two, you go into detail about how you intend to organize your information, what outside source(s) you plan to use, and your timeline for finishing the project. Be sure to include: What is your intended thesis (what you plan to argue or explore; your main idea) or compelling question (a question you ask of the text)? Here are some examples:
My intended thesis is that Spiegelman’s use of animals in Maus is not a good technique.
My intended compelling question is: How does Maus portray Poland, and what can I learn about Poland from reading this book?
In my paper, I plan to explore the country of Honduras and how it is reflected in my chosen book.
My intended compelling question is: what did this book teach me about Cuba, and how is living in Cuba different than living in Tennessee?
In my paper, I plan on looking at the various manifestations of gendered violence and its impact on the characters’ mental health in Maus, Persepolis, and Knitting the Fog.
In my paper, I plan on answering some of the questions that are provided to me in the Final Project Information.
Note: if you need help with coming up with something to write about, just email me and I’d be glad to help!
