Response Paper 3 Comparison/contrast Due Fri., 10-23-15 Choose two assigned readings (Oct. 5 – Oct. 21). You may choose two student essays (Blom, Yu, Tang, Cepek, Bracamonte, Lee, Park, Liang, Song, Fah, or Al-Beyati), two selections by professional writers (Addario, Richman, Narayan, Pollan, or Dunthorne), or one of each. Write a 2-3 page essay comparing or contrasting these two descriptions. Your analysis should focus on audience, purpose, and organizing principle. Your response should focus on what you learned about descriptive writing from these writers’ approaches to the assignment. Your paper should have a thesis that focuses on similarities OR differences between the two descriptions, whichever is more interesting to you. Organize your paper in a point by point comparison or contrast, using separate paragraphs for each point. Illustrate your points with examples from the texts.

What is the primary organizing principle (chronological, spatial, topical)? 5. What is the dominant impression of this description, especially toward the end? Response 1.

How and why did you choose your topic? What knowledge or experience do you already have of the topic? What else would you like to know about this topic? How much do you think an audience of your classmates would know about this topic? II. Setting up Researchable Questions. Go back through your freewriting and highlight (underline, italicize, or bold) all the important concepts. Now write at least three questions. These questions should not merely elicit definitions or opinions but help you understand your topic more fully and develop a thesis about it. Highlight the important words in your questions. III. Choosing Keywords. Look again at your highlighted words. Choose 4 or 5. Using a thesaurus or dictionary, write at least 4 synonyms for each word. Remember that your subject itself MUST be a keyword. (If you are writing about an issue in another country, the name of the country must be a keyword.) Nouns and noun phrases make the best search words.  IV. Searching the University Databases/Choosing an article for the summary-analysis paper.  1. Go to the Mason home page.  2. Click Academics, Libraries, Articles and More.  3. Select "a" from the alphabetical list of databases. Scroll down to Academic Search Complete. (Or “p” for Proquest Research Library)  4. Mark the box for Full Text.     5. In the first search box, enter the noun or noun phrase of your topic. In the second box (after AND) type "college students" or “culture.” 6. Skim through the list of articles. Make sure you can identify the titles, authors, journal (newspaper, magazine) title, date of publication, and length of the article. (Look for articles that are 4-25 pages long.) Read the abstracts of articles that look promising. 7. Choose an article for your summary/analysis paper. The article should be published in an academic/ professional journal or in a major newspaper or magazine. Save it to your computer as a PDF file and/or E-mail it to yourself. Read and annotate the article. (Look at the guidelines for the Summary/Analysis paper to help you highlight important information.) Bring the annotated article to class on Monday, Nov. 9   1. Write a Work Cited entry for your article.   Example of MLA Style Work Cited entry. (Full list will be Works Cited, in alphabetical order by authors’ last name.)  Hirsch, Arnold R., and Lee A. Levert. “The Katrina Conspiracies: The Problem of Trust   in Rebuilding an American City.” Journal of Urban History 35.2 (2009): 207-19.   Academic Search Premier. Web. 1 Nov. 2013          1) Two authors (Last Name, First Name Middle Initial., and First Name Middle Initial Last Name. List the authors in the order they appear on the article. If there are more than 3 authors, list the first author followed by et al. Ex. Smith, John et al. 2) "Title of Article." (Capitalize all words except prepositions and articles. "The" is capitalized because it comes after a colon.) 3) Title of Journal (Use italics and capitalize all words except prepositions, no period after title.) 4) Volume: Issue (Year of publication): page range. (Usually you can find this as a header or footer on a pdf file.) 5) Database. (Capitalize each word and italicize). 6) Medium. (Web since you accessed it from the databases.) 7) Date of access. (day Mon. year--no commas)       Remember to start the entry from the left margin and indent the second and third lines one tab. Double space the entry.  1)Introduction. Write an introductory paragraph for your summary/analysis. This should include the title of the article, the authors’ names or credentials, and a brief introduction to the article. If the article reports on a research study, mention when and where the research was done and its purpose. If the article summarizes research on the topic, mention the focus and scope of this article. Finally, discuss the importance of this article to your research.  Example:   In “American Karoshi,” published in New Internationalist in 2002, Matthew Reiss investigated the phenomenon of workaholism, or as they say in Japan, karoshi – working yourself to death. The author told stories of different people suffering from the “disease” of workaholism , highlighting the role that government plays in the development of work addiction among American citizens, and he also mentioned what impact work obsession has on people’s health. With this source, I hoped to answer my questions of whether workaholism is a real disease and how its impact be reduced.      2. Outline the structure of the article. Identify passages from the article that you may want to use in your Summary/Analysis paper (Pay special attention to the conclusion/discussion parts of the article.) Practice 4 different types of quotations (short quote, long quote, integrated quote, and paraphrase.) 3. Write the rest of your paper, following the guidelines for the Summary/Analysis paper. Remember to include at least 3 quotations from the article. Each quotation must be properly introduced and cited. Body: Summarize the structure and content of the article, including at least 3 direct quotations that you may include in your essay. Introduce and cite the quotations using correct MLA Style. Remember to “sandwich” the quotations with your own words. The signal phrase that comes before the quote should contain information that shows why the quote is important and reliable; the parenthetical citation that follows the quote helps the reader locate the source on the Works Cited (alphabetical list of sources at the end of the paper.) Conclusion: After reflecting on what you learned from this source, write about your remaining (or new) research questions. Include your Work Cited at the end of the paper (no separate page necessary)    You are expected to use parts of this paper in Essay #3, most likely near the beginning of your paper, after the introduction.  Compile an alphabetical list of your sources in MLA Style. Double space the sources and use bold. After each source, write a brief paragraph (2-3 sentences) about each source. The first sentence should provide the writers’ credentials or the place the research was done and the purpose or scope of the study. (Do not repeat the writers’ names in this sentence.) The second sentence should briefly summarize the findings or argument. A final sentence may be added to explain how this source is different from others on your Works Cited.           Greene, Kim. “Should You Work?” Scholastic Choices. 27.1 (2011) : 22-25.
