Remember that the goal of write in ENG 102 is to analyze HOW the various forms of literature were written by discussing the literary elements a writer employed. Make sure that you choose the essay in which you focus your attention on analyzing the piece(s) rather than offering value judgements on the author’s work, or that you revise sentences like ___ did a great job….
You are also required to add one body paragraph (10 sentences) to the paper as well as one additional source. You need to quote at least once from the additional source and add the source to your Works Cited Page. Don’t forget to site this source in text as well.
