ENGL 106Y INTRODUCTORY COMPOSITION project 1: scholarly article analysis 25% of final grade statement of purpose due: Friday, 9/6, by 11:59pm DST rough draft due: Wednesday, 9/18, by 11:59pm DST peer responses due: Friday, 9/20, by 11:59pm DST final analysis due with reflective memo: Wednesday, 9/25, by 11:59pm DST OVERVIEW To be effective scholars, professionals, and citizens, we must understand how to analyze a text. This analysis requires careful reading, awareness of the text’s organization and rhetorical strategies, critical consideration of the text’s sources, and, of course, a response to the text’s argument (or thesis). When we respond to a thesis, we need to consider two things: whether the thesis itself is well constructed and offers a reasonable argument, and whether the thesis is proven by the text. For this assignment, you will write an essay about a scholarly article. In this essay, you will analyze and evaluate the thesis and argumentation presented in the article, and you will also assess the sources used by the article’s author: you will consider what kinds of sources the author uses and you will assess how the author uses those sources. Throughout your essay, you will offer an overall, academic judgment about whether the article can persuade its intended/target audience.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
