Honors English IV- Bueckendorf Romance Hero Essay Outline Directions: Use this outline format to organize your thinking prior to completing your rough draft. The prompt, for reference: Consider the conventions of the romance hero as illustrated in “The Day of Destiny”. Write an essay that examines the conventions that differ from those of a hero in modern society, especially those that run counter to basic survival skills. If survival isn’t the romance hero’s priority, what is? Explain what Arthur’s actions reveal about his values and motivations, and by extension those of Middle Ages Britain. Use examples and details from the selection to support your analysis. Essay Structure While it is possible to write a quality essay using other structures and organizations, a suggestion is to use the following structure (this is mirrored in the outline below): 1. Introduction Paragraph 2. Body Paragraph 1 (Establishing Arthur as a Romance Hero using text support) 3. Body Paragraph 2 (Exploring how Arthur’s motivations and values (chivalry) affect the outcome of the story) 4. Body Paragraph 3 (Discuss how these conventions differ from heroism in modern society) 5. Conclusion Paragraph General DOs: Avoid quotes that are longer than four lines. Cite your sources using MLA in-text citation. For this essay, use the author’s name and then the Holt page number. “A quote from Day of Destiny would be cited like this” (Malory 192). Maintain academic voice! Avoid first person or casual language. General DON’Ts: DON’T use contractions (like don’t…) DON’T use second person (you/your) or first person singular (I/my) DON’T use “I believe” or “I feel” As this is your paper, there is no need to state this is your opinion “I believe Black Panther had flaws” becomes “Black Panther has flaws.”

    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.

    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.
