Introduction to College English (1436)

Second Essay (20%)


Your task is to write a thematic essay of 750 words (minimum) on the short story “Homecoming” by Sunera Thobani (available in your course pack).  Your essay will be written at home, but you will have the opportunity to peer-edit your introduction and your outline in class.  Your essay must have a statement of theme as its thesis (ex. Thobani suggests that….) and must look at literary elements (i.e. character, narrative point of view, imagery, plot, symbolism, metaphor, simile, mood, foreshadowing, setting, irony, conflict, etc.) in order to demonstrate the theme.  You must use at least two direct quotations per paragraph and reference the page number correctly using MLA format.  You must have an original title, an introduction, three body paragraphs (each with its own topic sentence and summary sentence) and a conclusion.  You must double-space your writing and type and staple the final version.  You must also include a Work Cited list at the end of your essay.  Your final draft must include your name, the date you submitted the assignment, the course and section number, and your teacher’s name.  It will be submitted both in class and on (details below).  Failure to respect these basic formatting guidelines will result in your essay being returned to you for editing; late penalties may apply.

You should consider this assignment as a practice for your final essay at the end of the semester.  The important thing is to show me your interpretation of the text.
