Use this guide to learn how to research and cite sources for your course.
Unit 4 Overview of Criticism
You need five total sources, a summary of each source, and a one-page summary of the sources you've found. Be sure to discuss how the sources relate to each other and what they suggest about the novel you've chosen, its meaning, and its importance to literature.
Remember that part of the requirement is to follow MLA guidelines. You MUST quote, summarize and use in-text citations throughout the assignment.
The purpose of this learning assessment is to help you assess your learning mastery based on making an argument about the meaning of the novel or a part of the novel.
You need to use 3-5 sources (from a library database and NOT including the novel) in a 6-10 page research paper which has a clear thesis and explicates the meaning of your novel. This is NOT a report. You are a literary scholar, and you are making an argument about the meaning of the novel or a part of the novel.
The submission must follow all MLA style guidelines, including formatting, in-text citations, and works cited entries.
Task : Generate an original thesis about a minimum of four literary texts in which you argue in favor of the thesis through the lens of a critical theory and support the argument with analysis of the literary texts, as well as a minimum of two scholarly works.
