DescriptionWeve read some great pieces so far this semester, now its time to transition to a more formal style of writing and arguing. This is a casual analysis, but you will using formal language and crafting an argument, something you want your reader to agree with you on. There will be no use of I or you in this, unless quoting the author. If youre feeling stuck, consider the questions in First Steps of the Assignment. Many of these questions you should ask of the text can be turned into your thesis for this analysis.General Educational Competencies of Assignment Written CommunicationReading FluencyCritical ThinkingInformation Literacy First Steps of AssignmentAnalyze the text.

What makes you think that?What do you think the authors intentions are? (e.g. attack, teach, defend, praise, etc.)What logical schema were used to develop the authors ideas? Do they describe, tell a story, compare and contrast, show cause and effect, bring in evidence (such as facts, statistics, etc.)?How did the author organize the text? Think about the beginning, middle, and end. What effect does this organization have?What style and tone does the author use and why? What diction (word choice) does the author use? What does that tell you about the author and situation?
