I HAVE CHOSEN LITERARY ARGUMENT WHICH I WILL UPLOAD DONE
The purpose of this assignment is to give you experience with researching a specific topic and to further hone the skills you’ve learned about responding to the writing of others and using examples from a text to support your claims. This assignment will help you build on the analysis or the argument that you’ve already written by searching for what others have written in an effort to provide additional support for your own ideas. This assignment allows you to actually become a part of the conversation about your chosen work by incorporating your thoughts and ideas alongside the thoughts and ideas of others who are experts and/or authorities in their chosen fields.
This assignment will help you do the following:
Expand on the original analysis or argument you presented in your previous assignment
Learn research skills that will help you to narrow your search
Analyze resources to help you decide which sources will best help you support your claim
Thoroughly and clearly support the analysis or argument you’ve presented in your thesis through the use of secondary materials
Incorporate the thoughts and ideas of others alongside your own thoughts and ideas in an effort to support your analysis or argument
Correctly cite multiple sources both in your paper and on your works cited page

Option 1: You may use your existing literary analysis to expand into your research paper.
Option 2: You may use your existing literary argument to expand into your research paper. (I CHOOSE OPTION 2)
Option 3: You may write another analysis or argument paper on an assigned work in The Norton Introduction to Literature for your research paper; however, your paper must be written on one of the prompts from the original assignment instructions. (NOTE: If do not write on one of the assigned readings and original prompts, you will receive a zero for the assignment. )
