Literature Skill Building

Therefore, you will need to be able to locate, analyze, and evaluate scholarly sources properly. This activity will help you build these research skills. For this assignment, choose a scholarly critical article from one of the GMC Library literature databases that makes a clear argument about any one of the stories you’ve read for class so far. The article you choose must provide more than basic biographical information and plot summary alone- it must make an opinionated argument about some aspect of the literary work you’ve read for class. Please summarize the article’s main ideas, and then evaluate your article’s merits– is the author’s thesis interesting? Did you agree with its ideas? Did the author do an effective job proving his or her argument- why or why not? Your complete summary/evaluation should be at least 300 words in length and fully address all requirements.For help with GMC Library navigation, view the “How to Use the GMC Library” resource in this week’s Online Learning Resources.Instructions: Clearly identify the author’s thesis and main points by first summarizing the article briefly. You should then provide an evaluation of these main points and explain how this article’s argument is relevant or convincing to you (or not), and why.MLA Style:Your paper must be formatted according to MLA format (this includes having a four-line heading, 2.0 line spacing [double spacing], etc.)All quotations and paraphrases must be cited using MLA style.Include in this analysis a brief QUOTE and a PARAPHRASE from the article, with appropriate in-text parenthetical citations.Include a Works Cited page at the end of your paper that cites your chosen article.For more information about MLA style, review the “How-To Guide: MLA Formatting and Citations” page linked in class. Mechanics:All written assignments should be mechanically and grammatically correct with proper punctuation.For more information on each of these, you should view the Purdue OWL’s General Writing Resources page: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/general_writing/general_writing_introduction.html
