Question description

Purpose and Overview

The second out-of-class assignment of this semester adds to the skills you have already been developing by requiring the use of information in your readings for a specific purpose. In College Writing (ENGL 100 F), you are often asked to address ideas you have found in readings. You will need to be selective in your choice of an idea from the readings to analyze and/or explain.

Background Readings (in American Mashup)

Jeffrey Zaslow, “The Most Praised Generation Goes to Work,” pp. 550-556

Jamie Pritscher, “Yes, I’m 26. And Yes, I Do the Hiring,” pp. 557-560

Daniel Brook, “Usury Country: Welcome to the Birthplace of Payday Lending,” pp. 568-575

Barbara Ehrenreich, “Nickel-and-Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America,” pp. 577-591

John Richardson, “The Tao of Plumbing: No Pipes, No Civilization,” pp. 593-600

Writing Task 

Choose a key point made in one of the assigned readings to discuss in an essay of at least three pages. Answer the following questions as your primary focus:

How accurate is the key point made by the writer? Why is this point accurate or inaccurate, valid or not? 

You must limit your discussion to one specific point made in the assigned reading that you choose to discuss, not all of the points that the writer makes. Keep the emphasis on a main idea rather than on a minor point or detail. 

Early in your essay, you will need to summarize the overall reading and, in particular, the key point that it makes that you’re going to discuss. This provides a context for discussion of the idea you choose but limits the amount of attention given to the rest of the reading. 

You may use additional outside sources to help you make your points, but you are not required to do so for this essay. That is optional.
