THE FIRST PART (WHAT ARE THEY SAYING?): Summarize both essays, separately. Use the Summarize instructions on page 49 of So What? (make each Summary about two paragraphs for each essay). Remember: You will be describing this essay to someone who is not familiar with it. THE SECOND PART (HOW ARE THEY SAYING IT?): In several paragraphs, answer the following questions: What is Klein’s Thesis; What is Scranton’s Thesis? (Definition of Thesis from So What?: “What is a potentially controversial, overarching idea that requires support and directly responds to the Inspirations”) What do they want you to believe, or convince you of? Note: Do not get this confused with the Topic or Purpose. Select one random paragraph from Klein’s essay and one random paragraph from Scranton’s essay, type them both out, and then Compare the language used by both authors. How is the sentence structure different? How is the vocabulary different? How is the tone different between the two? Each author uses a significant amount Evidence in their essay. Give me one piece of scholarly evidence from each essay that you find compelling. (A statistic that is cited or a quote that is cited.) Don’t confuse this with anecdote. Take three Ravishing Passages from each essay, type them out, and explain why you chose them. THE THIRD PART (WHAT DO YOU SAY ABOUT IT?): Formulate your own THESIS statement which answers the following question: Which essay has the stronger argument? Then, in a supported writing of about 3 pages, tell me why (give me support for your thesis). If you think both arguments are equally strong, you will need to support that position as well.
