How was your break?

Essays: By the end of the week/early next week

Notes about a strong analysis paper…

Vocab #4

Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood

  • We will be annotating these books heavily- you’ll want your own copy (unless you love sticky notes)

    • Amazon, B&N, etc.

Notes to remember about a strong analysis paper:

  • Indicative of a mature writer:

    • No first person

    • Assertive language (no “maybe”, “tries”, etc.)

  • Clear understanding of the author’s intended effect on the reader

    • How this applies to a larger context (conclusion)

    • Appropriate and interesting insights (conclusion)

  • Strong topic adherence- do you stick to your focus?

  • Strong textual integration with rhetorical strategies.

Quote Integration

  • Poorly integrated:

    The phrase, “the gloom hovering over them,” shows the ominous feeling of the scene.

  • Better:

    The scene with “the gloom hovering over them” was an eerie and dismal picture.

How could you strengthen this integration?

Goodman states, “He worked six days a week, five of them until eight or nine at night”, however, the obituary states that Phil died on a Sunday…

“He was of course overweight by 20 or 25 pounds. He thought that was okay, though, because he didn’t smoke”. Even though smoking is very unhealthy, Phil’s weight was also unhealthy.
