Respond to the following prompt: Choose either Truth’s speech or Fuller’s essay and complete a close reading. Then summarize the author’s main idea and provide your own analysis, insight, and response. Include a sentence or two explaining why you chose the piece you did. You must determine a central idea (thesis)for your post before you begin writing. Resist the urge to look up summaries or criticism of the poem. This assignment is specifically asking for your analysis and response without any external input. Support your discussion with specific in-text support from the piece.
This post must be a minimum of 275 words. No Plagiarism
You must demonstrate your ability to analyze and synthesize the material you have read. You will accomplish this in a number of ways:
1. You must include a minimum of 1 in text citation from the assigned reading(s) for the prompt. That in-text citation may be in the form of a direct quote or a paraphrase; however, a paraphrase demonstrates analysis and synthesis and, therefore, is the stronger option. In writing your in text citation, you must format it with a signal phrase and end it with a parenthetical note: Lena Sorensen clearly identifies the importance of the young man’s proposal by placing the scene at the climax of the story (985).
2. You must also use the Academic Moves templates and verbs, boldfacing them in your post. I provided handouts for the Academic Moves templates and verbs and for the proper formatting of a Works Cited entry from our text in an earlier module.
