You have seen HAMILTON. Using what you have learned in class, make an argument as to what genre you believe the production demonstrated. Using Aristotle's six elements,

Section 1. Summarize your personal and general experience with the
readings, performance, or concept involved in your chosen question (How did
it make you feel?  Did you agree or disagree with its ideas, characters, styles,
or qualities? Did it resonate with anything in your personal life?  Was it difficult
or easy to experience and why?). Feel free to use an informal writing style
and first person. [125-150 words]
Section 2. Provide an argument (i.e. convince the reader of your answer) in
response to your selected question in one paragraph using the following
writing structure. The degree to which you are successful in following these
guidelines will be reflected in your grade.
Thesis sentence —the “thesis statement” of your paragraph or what you
intend to prove, including all of the pertinent information that may be involved
in answering the question (like the play or performance involved, your key
terms, and your assertion regarding the question).
Lead-in sentence(s) —one or two sentences that establishes the context for
the evidence you provide.
Evidence sentence(s) —the specific example or examples from the class
experience or performance that best helps you answer the question. 
Analysis and Conclusion —this is the longest part of the paragraph, explaining
what the evidence means and how it applies to your assertion and other
aspects of the question.
Use a formal writing style, and do your best to avoid first person. [1 paragraph
-250-300 words]
4) You have only a small amount of space so express each of your ideas
succinctly. In other words, be direct and get to the point. Using vague, general
language to express an idea weakens a paper.

*  Every time you use the title of a play, like Romeo and Juliet, it should be
italicized or underlined. 
*  Grammar and punctuation matter. Re-read and review your paper before
submitting. Many mistakes, especially spelling, could easily be avoided by
using spell check.
*  Use action verbs.
*  Vary sentence structure and length.
*  Make your margins 1 inch on all sides and double space your text.
5) You will submit your RP as a Word or PDF attachment on Canvas on
or before the due date and time before the assignment closes.   DO NOT
SUBMIT YOUR PAPER FROM YOUR SMARTPHONE.    
We will be unable to open it.
