This system is designed to encourage academic integrity, accurate use of sources, and independent work in writing. In our discussions and quiz, we have been looking at whether you comprehend and understand a reading. Now we will shift to looking at the meanings or implications of the source. REFLECTION: Reflect on the overall theme of the value of reading well and writing critically. Critical Analysis: Critical Analysis looks carefully at the logic of the text, how the claims are identified, and assesses that the evidence supports the claims. This analysis seeks to answer: Does the author make a coherent claim? Can the claim be defended? Is the evidence presented enough and reliable? ASSIGNMENT: Write an analytical essay. Choose either the King, Woolf or Ryan essays from the chapter. Your essay needs to include answers to these questions: 1. Identify the author’s assumptions about the subject, his thesis. 2. What may have led the author to this position? 3. Identify the specific evidence that supports the main argument. Does this evidence convince the reader? Is there any evidence that contradicts the author’s position? 4. Is each source used to support the thesis relevant to the topic? 5. If there are any visuals that accompany the essay, how does it relate to the written text and does it reinforce it or not? Integrate specific support from the reading that you choose. This means quotations, paraphrases or summaries. Start using MLA citations and Works Cited. WRITING: Your paper needs a clear, purposeful thesis, a clear sense of audience (who would want to read this and why?) and response to the readings. You may use your readings, your notes on the readings, your discussions in "class" with classmates, to help you generate a topic that interests you. The paper format should include: 1. your paper's header in the upper left-hand corner (name, assignment, teacher, date); 2. the right header of last name and page number inserted using the header function; 3. The title (centered) and the paper (with first lines indented one tab space). 4. The whole paper should be evenly double-spaced without highlighting (bold, italics, etc.). Use standard margins. 5. All papers are to be typed using Times New Roman 12pt font Save the paper in Word (as a .doc) or as a rich text file (.rtf) or I will not be able to read it. MLA format is used for citations and the Works Cited. It is a good time to start learning about it. Use quotation marks around any words that come from the text to be ethical. The text in question should be obvious from your writing, and quotation marks will indicate the phrasing. Be sure that you review the qualities of an "A" paper and that you've read the appropriate lectures and viewed the appropriate PowerPoint presentations. They will help you to review the elements that make up a strong paper. When you have finished writing the paper, be sure to spell check your paper and review grammar. A final proofreading is a good idea too! Criteria for Grading: See Rubric in Syllabus

In his book ‘On writing’, Stephen King addresses aspiring and upcoming creative
writers. He takes his readers through his world and experiences as a writer, and advises them
on approaches which have worked for him throughout his writing journey. King highlights
what good and bad writing look like, and how writers can avoid bad writing. Inexperienced
writers can improve their work by utilising the advice, lessons, tools and the techniques
shared by king. The advice can help develop their stories and characters, and writers can
learn to use their personal experiences to become profound writers. King’s argument urges
writers to read more, write more, not to be people pleasers, to write for themselves, to
disconnect from the world, focus on characters, not to worry too much about grammar, and to
