Due: March 26, 2008 (in class, no electronic transfers) (100 points) Read a book from the attached list and write a three- to four-page paper based on the following guidelines. The paper will be evaluated on how well you address each question, your writing skills, and your demonstrated critical thinking skills. Two rubrics, one for critical thinking and the other for writing skills, for how your paper will be assessed are attached. Write the paper in essay-format. Do not make a list of questions and answers. You are required to incorporate one additional scholarly reference, not the Farley textbook or Voices of Pain, in any way you choose. Scholarly references can include textbooks, books based on research (not novels) and scholarly journals (not magazines). You can differentiate a scholarly journal from a magazine in that the articles have citations to references, there are no advertisements, and there are no pictures other than maybe graphs and charts. You can cite online journals as long as they meet the critiera set forth above. Otherwise, Internet web sites are not scholarly references. 1. Provide a brief description of the book. What is the basic theme or thesis of the book? You are not to agree, disagree, or evaluate the author's claims, but only identify the primary claim(s) and perspectives of the author. [Refer to "Articulation of Meanings" in the Critical Thinking Skills Rubric.] 2. What are the author's main points of argument to support his/her theme or thesis? [Refer to "Validity of Claims" in the Critical Thinking Skills Rubric.] 3. Critically evaluate the author's points of argument and theme/thesis. Do you agree or not?
