7 October 2005
Due in my office, by 5pm, Friday October 7.
Submission policy: No credit will be given if the paper is incomplete.
The paper is incomplete if it is not submitted with all three of the following components.
1. Rough Draft
Include your rough draft (with my comments).
2.1 Follow MLA Style.
2.2 Staple it on top of your rough draft.
2.3 Highlight changes. On your revision, highlight editing changes in one color and revision changes in another. (See "Revision vs. Editing." Obviously I want to see a lot of revision.)
3. Submission Note
In an informal note to me, describe the most significant changes you made when revising this paper. What is your greatest success in revising this paper? What would you do if you had more time?
If, in the process of revising your paper, you realize you need to change your thesis statement, or if you change your mind, that's perfectly fine. I'm not forcing you to stick with the same thesis as your first draft.
Use brief quotations from the literary text, and integrate them smoothly into your own argument. (Don't write the whole paper first, then look for quotations to support your argument.)
I am not asking you to refer to any source other than the primary text itself. If you do choose to cite an outside source, please ensure that it is credible.
Read "Integrating Quotations," but note that page focuses on research papers. The techniques involved for integrating quotations from literary sources are the same.
