American Literature II: Post Civil War to the Present Mid-Term North Shore Community College Instructor: Lance Eaton DUE: March 6, 2008 AT THE BEGINNING OF CLASS QUESTION #1 Using one of the many chapters from “How to Read Literature Like a Professor,” (Except Chapters 1-2, and 16—at least in regards to the music scene in the Awakening), apply the lessons and explanations provided by Foster to illuminate a scene in one of the books/stories that we’ve read. This should be a clear explanation consisting of the following: 1. Explain what Foster’s thesis is in that particular chapter. 2. Explain the scene from the particular story/book. 3. Explain how Foster’s thesis rings true in relation to the story’s progress. Students wishing to get the most points for this assignment will use quotes, but use quotes effectively, not excessively. QUESTION #2-4 Students must choose ONE question for each section for a total of three. There is not set limit on length, but students should strive to answer the question cohesively and systematically, making sure their essays present a clear thesis and follows through with a conclusion in response to the essay.
