Paper 1 Rough Draft
This 800-1,000 word paper asks you to close read and analyze TWO of the first three assigned texts we examine in this course (treat texts 3a and 3b as separate here). Choose ONE prompt option and follow the instructions on the following page.
One: What is the primary consequence of the rise of smartphones in our contemporary society?
*Do not rewrite the prompt but include “Option One” or “Option Two” in your heading above your title.
Create a clear, supported argument in response to your chosen prompt.
Detailed Instructions for organizing your paper:
1) In the opening paragraph, this paper should have a strong, critical argument that goes beyond surface observations. Introduce the texts the paper will analyze.
2) The subsequent (body) paragraphs should analyze specific passages from your texts to demonstrate how you’ve arrived at your argument and interpretations.
2: Analyze don’t summarize! This is not a book report. Make points throughout the paper that relate to your argument using keywords from your opening paragraph.
3) You may need to incorporate direct quotations from the texts you analyze. These quotes MUST follow MLA or APA citation style. For information on citations, please consult your writing guide or visit the Purdue
3: Do not allow quotations to overwhelm your paper! For any direct quotation you include, make sure to write an ANALYSIS of the passage that is roughly double the length of the quotation itself.
4) A Works Cited or References list is required. Please consult your writing guide or the Purdue OWL for instructions on formatting.
