Genre: This is an analysis. You will have a main point, but your primary concern is not to argue that itâ€™s true, as in an argument paper. Your primary concern is to explore your topic. You will inform the reader by sharing what you learned from the texts you read, your own experiences with the topic, and your own supported opinions.
Structure: Your essay should have three parts: introduction, body and conclusion. Please use some of the moves to make in an introduction that we studied in class. In particular, you should introduce the topic, give your perspective on it, and establish its importance. You can give your main point either in the introduction or in the conclusion. You can structure the body as you see fit, but please work on making your paragraphs cohere by using transition sentences.
Referencing: You should let the reader know, in the middle of your text, each time you use an idea or copy words from a source text. Also, give a complete list of source texts at the end of your paper
