Pushing Back

Make sure to complete the W1 and W2 Literary Analysis Tools Modules before completing this assignment. Part of your grade is based on selection,integration,and citation of quotations.

Post responses to both prompts. You must post on two different days to earn full credit for participation.

Post 1: Identify a character from both a fiction (Zitkala-Sa, Alexie’s “Pawn Shop,” Wright, or Ellison) and a nonfiction (Tecumseh, Jacobs, or Douglass) piece that we have read this week. First,show how the character is limited in his or her role in society (excluded from the American Dream), and then explain specifically how that character pushes against boundaries imposed by society.

Now that you have created your outline, you are ready to begin drafting your literary analysis essay. In this learning module, you will review formal vs. informal writing and APA page formatting to guide you as you write your literary analysis.

NOTE:

To consider the short nature of this course, there is a three-day grace period for your essay submission. The essay is due on the last day of Week 3 (Sunday), and you are encouraged to submit the essay on time. However, you may submit your essay as late as Wednesday of Week 4 without any points deducted for late work. If you need the extra time, it is my hope that you take advantage of the opportunity to polish your essay so that you can earn the highest grade possible. Take advantage of the resources that Keiser University provides, such as the Keiser OWL; the English Help Center; and, for visiting students, your home campus’s Writing Studio.
