– Must be between 900 – 1,100
– Avoid too much summary, and organize your body paragraphs around your thesis.
– Title your essay. This title should reflect your thesis.
– Briefly state and develop a clear evaluative thesis that comes out of your review.
– Include three or more supportive quotations.
– Include an acknowledgment (and perhaps a refutation) of an opposing perspective.
– Use present tense in narrating action.
– Conclude your essay with a paragraph that does more than merely summarize your work.
-MLA documentation
– Your review should incorporate much of the guidance offered in chapter 16, “Two Thumbs Up” (I’ve attached Screen Shots)
– Consider your rhetorical situation: Identify your audience, and consider an approach that will engage this audience.
– Consider your purpose and overall attitude toward your subject.
– Consider larger context: Perhaps referencing common expectations for Commencement speeches.
– Establish criteria: Identify aspects of the speech that inform your evaluation
– Compose a thesis: Your review must include an informed assessment of the speech that is clearly stated.
– Note that the title of the essay is a “Literary Review” and that the prompt asks you to “develop a clear evaluative thesis.”
– Then go back to the textbook reading (348-361) (you must do this!) and make sure you have a good understanding of what a literary review entails. (I’ve attached Screen Shots)
– There is a lot of terrific information in the chapter, but understand that at its core a literary review is an assessment of a text. This assessment can be rhetorical (looking primarily at the language), content-based (looking primarily at the message of the speech), or a combination of both.
– Then compose a thesis that assesses the speech (Obama’s commencement is moving because…., DeGeneres effectively uses personal anecdote to….). Please do not simply summarize the speech, nor focus exclusively on the author’s argument.
