ENGL 1100 Essay 1: Implicit Claims Analysis We have discussed how writers build both implicit and explicit claims in their writing. In this essay, you will further investigate and interrogate the various claims of authors. At the same time, you will respond to the claims of an author while affirming, challenging, and/or contradicting his or her claims with viable evidence. In other words, you will meaningfully synthesize various pieces of information—readings, personal experiences, in-class discussions, etc.—into a single essay. Your essay should make connections between different parts of a text in order to discuss your chosen claim. Essay Prompt: In 4-5 pages, identify an implicit claim that Mike Rose makes in Lives on the Boundary. Explain how specific anecdotes, statistics, and other such evidence within the text work together to develop this claim. Further engage with the claim by affirming, dismantling, and/or expanding upon the claim.
