What this “prep work” is for: One of the five-course learning outcomes for WRIT 100 is for students to Develop and apply a process for writing well-structured texts that employ tone and language appropriate to their context. Part 1 of Assignment #2 is about the writing process. I am asking you to provide me with some preparation work for your first analysis paragraph by filling in the sections below. Write your preparation work on er of the following articles: Sadiya Ansari, “Here’s How Multiculturalism Has Failed People Like Me” Elamin Abdelmahmoud, “50 Years of Multiculturalism: We Do It Well … Except When We Don’t” Michael Adams, “50 Years of Multiculturalism: It’s as Canadian as Maple Syrup” This semester, I will be asking you to focus on a kind of close reading and writing that is very focused on analyzing and evaluating what other writers have said, and I think that doing this kind of prep work is very useful when doing this kind of writing. One of the things that I want you to do with the analysis paragraphs that you are going to write for me this semester is to focus on specific examples from the articles that we have been looking at and to tell me how you think they were meant to work to persuade readers before you evaluate whether or not those examples were effective. This preparation work is to assist you in doing that.

There are supposed to be 2-4 quotes from the play in each body paragraph

this is the topic ” Hamlet suffers from profound grief at the loss of his father, a grief that is exacerbated by the mission of the Ghost to avenge his murder at Claudius’ hands. Explore and support a thesis that both defines the qualities of Hamlet’s grief as well as the coping mechanisms that he undergoes to assuage this grief. To what extent do these coping techniques both lessen and intensify his grief. Make sure to focus on specific events and episodes as well as his relationships with at least one-to-three other characters in your essay. Also, make sure to consider whether the end of the play–the fulfillment of his ultimate goal to avenge his father’s death–achieves an acceptance of his grief or a denial of that grief”

Your goal is to perform well-reasoned causal analysis while effectively managing sources in clear academic prose.
Your thesis should be an assertion of causality. It might contain phrases like caused, may have caused, contributed to, spread, advanced, effected, promoted, or gave rise to. This central statement needs to be debatable but defensible. To generate ideas and arrive at a first-story thesis to build on, consider taking Guptill’s advice and writing a first publish. Then, write a completely new publish as a revision, to extend your thesis and sharpen your reasoning. Be careful, as you go, to avoid post hoc ergo propter hoc and other logical fallacies. Support your claims with evidence. Address alternative causality, and apply procatalepsis. Apply Guptill’s principles of style and paragraphing to create your most elegant piece of writing yet.
I will be looking for all of the following components in this paper:

Frederic henry’s perspective and attitude about war changes drastically in this story by hemingway.

Frederic Henry’s perspective and attitude about war changes drastically in this story by Hemingway. How and why does Henry’s change happen? Write a reflective essay in which you explain Henry’s change in thinking about war and connect this to a personal experience where you underwent a significant change of perspective, how and why this change happened, and how this benefited your life. The essay’s thesis statement and body contents should refer to A Farewell to Arms and clearly state the connection. The conclusion should refer back to A Farewell to Arms too.
Note: Henry’s change in perspective about war has nothing to do with Catherine or romance!
Thesis statement: Your introduction’s thesis statement must include story title and author (A Farewell to Arms by Hemingway), the controlling ideas of Henry’s change and your change, and why this is important. Do not use announcements such as “In this essay…”.
The essay should be 1 typed page in length and include essay structure with an introduction, body and conclusion paragraphs. Proofread and edit carefully for correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation.

‘squeezing in’ or ‘raining down on your chosen topic, etc.

BMCC’s Policy Regarding Plagiarism:
Plagiarism is the presentation of someone else’s ideas, words, or artistic/scientific/technical work as one’s own creation. A student who copies or paraphrases published or on-line material, or another person’s research, without properly identifying the source(s) is committing plagiarism.
Plagiarism violates the ethical and academic standards of our college. Students will be held responsible for such violations, even when unintentional. To avoid unintended plagiarism, students should consult with their instructors about when and how to document their sources. The library also has both print and digital guides designed to help students cite sources correctly.
Plagiarism carries a range of penalties commensurate with severity of the infraction. The instructor may, for example, require the work to be redone, reduce the course grade, fail the student in the course, or refer the case to the Faculty-Student Disciplinary Committee (see Article 15.4 of the Bylaws of the Board of Trustees). Cases referred to that committee could result in suspension or expulsion from the college.
Please Note: My policy is to fail the assignment and report the offense.

Components of the synthesis essay:

Now, in Essay 2, you are faced with that same audience, but with one important difference: Several members of this group continue to believe one of the two “bad ideas about writing” identified below. Your purpose for writing Essay 2 is to convince these instructors that this “bad idea about writing” is, in fact, a bad idea and not helpful to their future writing students. So, while your purpose in Essay 1 was to inform, your purpose in Essay 2 is to persuade.
To do so, your argument will draw support from three essays. I’ve suggested thematic groupings and natural pairings of articles below, but you may select articles from other sections of Bad Ideas about Writing if you’d like, and you may consider other “bad ideas” discussed in your text but not listed below.
Group 1: Bad Idea 1: Good writing happens naturally, with minimal process.
“Some People Are Just Born Good Writers” – Jill Parrot
“Failure Is Not an Option” – Allison D. Carr
“Strong Writing and Writers Don’t Need Revision” – Laura Giovanelli
Or:
Group 2: Bad Idea 2: Standard English is essential to good writing.
“There is One Correct Way of Writing and Speaking” – Anjali Pattanayak
“African American English is Not Good English” – Jennifer M. Cunningham
“Official American English Is Best” – Steven Alvarez
Components of the Synthesis Essay:
Introduction:
Your introduction should begin with a hook to gain your reader’s attention, and then transition to your essay’s focus. The introduction should culminate in a thesis statement that presents your argument about the myth that these three writers want to dispel.
Body Paragraphs:
Each body paragraph should present one key point in support of your thesis; this key point should be presented at the start of the body paragraph, in the topic sentence. Each body paragraph must incorporate evidence (in the form of summary, paraphrase, or direct quotation) from at least two of the three sources as well as analysis.
Do not organize your paragraphs so that you have one paragraph per source. The goal of this essay is to bring these authors into conversation with one another (and with you!), not to relegate each author to his/her own separate paragraph.
Conclusion:
Your conclusion should summarize your main points and restate your thesis. Your expanded thought can take many forms: You might advise your audience on how they can apply this lesson to their teaching, or you might remind them of the ways in which doing so will impact their students’ approaches to writing.
Works Cited List:
This essay will include a Works Cited list. This Works Cited list should follow MLA format and should appear on a separate page at the end of the essay.
Each article should have its own entry, and the entry should be double-spaced with hanging indents. Entries should be alphabetized by the author’s last name.
Author (Last name, first name). “Title of Essay.” Title of Book. Publishing info (if available). Page Numbers (if available and stable). Title of Database or Website where Book was Found. URL or DOI.
