Question Description

Overview: Writing is a craft that people spend a lifetime refining, and one which allows people to express themselves in various ways. Effective writing has the ability to shape and inform the opinions of its readers. The ability to articulate a message through writing is essential in any career. The writing process can be very intimidating; however, the more you work with it, the more comfortable the process becomes. Something key to remember is the fact that the writing process is never truly complete.

Prompt: For this milestone, you will return to your Writing Plan and create a first draft of your analysis essay. To help with this process, you will participate in a guided walkthrough activity that asks you to expand on the answers you submitted for Assignment 1: Finalized Writing Plan in Module 5. This guided activity is the same eLearning paper generator that was used for Assignment 1, except that the questions will be aimed towards developing a working draft. You will pull out quotes and paraphrases and develop summaries that will be used to further support your points. You will also apply your instructor's feedback from Assignment 1. When you are done responding to the prompts in this guided activity, you will have a transformed, more developed draft. You will be able to use the reverse outline in Module 6 to make sure that this draft has a clear, fluid, detailed approach. Whatever is completed in MindEdge by the deadline will be sent to your instructor for grading.

Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:

I. Introduction

This is where readers will have a chance to get an idea of what your essay will be about and what you will prove throughout. Don't give all of your information away here, but give readers a sample of what is to come. Don't forget to review your Writing Plan to make sure you are hitting all of the points that you planned out, while also stating your claim. (Note that if your claim and points have changed since the Writing Plan, that is okay, but it is advised to seek feedback on your new approach, either through your instructor or the SNHU Online Writing Center).

  1. Provides an overview of the work you have analyzed, briefly describing main points, and your thoughts about your selected article.
  2. Compose an engaging thesis that states the claim that you will prove and support throughout your essay. This statement will give direction to your essay and should be well thought out.

II. Body

The body is your opportunity to describe and support your claim in depth. Make sure your thoughts and evidence are clear and organized in a way that is easy for readers to follow and understand.

  1. Be sure to write multiple paragraphs that are focused, clearly state their intent, and move logically from one to the other, building the thesis argument as the essay progresses.
  2. Your body paragraphs should support your claim by combining thoughts and ideas with evidence from the selected reading. There is no such thing as a right or wrong claim; the key is how your claim is supported and the quality of the evidence used.

III. Conclusion

Think of the conclusion as a review of your analysis. Use this section to restate your claim, and remind readers of your supporting evidence. Think of this as your last chance to prove your point.

  1. Review your claim and summarize key supporting points. This section should consist of a review of your main points employed to support your argument.
  2. Your conclusion should articulate insights about your claim established through your analysis. This should follow logically from your argument, referring to key points or quotes used to support your claim.

Questions that need to be answered are below (questions 1-14)

2. In Assignment 1: Writing Plan, you wrote a claim* to be addressed in your analysis essay. The claim should again clearly state what you believe is the author's goal in his or her article, your reaction to this goal (e.g., do you agree or disagree?), and why you had this reaction.

The evidence should be a direct quote* from the article, a summary* of a section of the article, or a paraphrased* section of the article. Include the evidence in the textbox.

Then, write 4 or more sentences that explain your reaction to the author's key point (e.g., do you agree or disagree with this key point and its evidence? Do you think the author met his/her goal with the evidence that is being presented? Does additional information need to be included?) Remember to elaborate on your reaction.

6. Write the second key point/supporting point from your Assignment 1: Writing Plan notes in the textbox below.

7. Now look for specific evidence to support this second key point. The evidence should be a direct quote from the article, a summary of a section of the article, or a paraphrased section of the article. Include the evidence in the textbox. (Remember to put quotation marks around direct quotes.)
