Short Essay on Chapter Five from Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat

Topic: You can analyze any aspect of chapter five “Prom Queen Kills First Deer on Sixteenth Birthday.” Your topic does not need to be “deep” for this short paper, but your MLA formatting and your clarity of writing are very important. I want to make sure you know how to write a short, well-organized analytical essay with a thesis and topic sentences. I also need to see that you can format in-text citations and a Works Cited page. Finally, I’ll be checking to see if your grammar and punctuation skills are at a passing level for this course.

Length: No more than 2 pages, doublespaced. You don’t need more than 2 pages to demonstrate your writing skills.

Format: You can follow the 5-paragraph essay format if you like (see handout in Course Material), but it’s not required.

Works Cited: At least 2 citations in the body of your paper. You must quote the chapter at least once, and you must quote at least one outside source (you can use an Internet source, another book, an interview, etc.). Note the “Recommended Reading” and “Notes” sections at the end of the book and consider using a source from these lists as your outside source. Include parenthetical (in-text) citations and a separate Works Cited page. Note: you are expected to know how to use MLA before you enroll in Engl 102.

Layout: Use MLA format for the body of your essay and for your works cited page. Refer to the handouts under the MLA tab in Blackboard if you need a refresher. Failure to use MLA format for the body of your essay will severely impact your grade.

Purpose: As noted above, I want to assess your writing and MLA formatting skills. The assignment also requires you to do minimal research so that you can quote one outside source.

WARNING: DO NOT SUMMARIZE THE CHAPTER IN THIS PAPER. You must analyze/discuss a certain detail (or details) that interest you. Focus on a narrow aspect of the chapter. If your essay is nothing but summary, you will receive a zero for the assignment.
