E314V: Native American Literature and Culture Fall 2012 Paper One General: Paper One is your opportunity to expand into an analytical argument the critical questions you have been asking during class discussions and in your Critical Responses. You will pursue a critical question (or cluster of closely related questions) by using your close reading and critical thinking skills to craft a debatable and surprising analytical argument. Your argument should be supported with detailed textual evidence and extended close readings and should be of personal interest to you and relevant to social, political, or cultural considerations of or by Native American individuals and/or communities. In other words, why is the argument you make (or, in Thomas King’s terms, the story you tell) in your paper important? How will it shape the way we read the text? How we understand the world? Paper One should be 3-4 double-spaced pages in 10-12 point Times New Roman font, with 1 inch margins and no extra spaces between paragraphs. You are not required to use sources outside of your primary text. However, if you choose to introduce contextual material, ensure that your sources are reliable and properly cited. In all cases, adhere to MLA style, including in-text citations and a Works Cited page. Paper One should be written in polished academic prose with minimal grammatical errors or distracting phrasing. You will have an opportunity to meet with me outside of class before the essay is due and to revise your work based on my written feedback. Assessment: I will assess Paper One holistically, considering the quality of its argument and organization.

    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.
