ENGL2 Summary and response: “Why Supreme Court Justices Should Celebrate College Diversity, Not Reject It” Sam May-Varas06/08/16Purpose: the ability to read and evaluate information critically is a major component of college writing. Using Elise C. Boddie’s article “Why Supreme Court Justices Should Celebrate College Diversity, Not Reject It” you will write a two-to three-page essay that does two things. The first full paragraph of the paper will demonstrate your ability to summarize this argument and to respond with a thesis; next, in the body of the paper, you’ll demonstrate your ability to analyze and respond, shedding light on your read of Boddie’s article for your audience. Audience: a reader who doesn’t know Boddie’s argument. Keep this reader in mind as you write and revise. Steps to complete this assignment:· Think about the work we have done together that will help you on this assignment. Look at the description of the assignment above: which resources will you need to use?· Read the argument actively, using the four-part key that we’ve used together as you read on your own. Paying attention to the “what” of her article will allow you to write the summary, but paying attention to the “how” of her piece will come in handy when it’s time to respond. Your ability to analyze and think critically is central to your demonstrating competence on this assignment.· In order to do well, you’ll need to read this article several times. You will notice things on a second and third read that you didn’t see the first time: every read is a different read. Underline, annotate with ! or ?, and look up any words that are unfamiliar.· Come to class on 06/01, ready to talk about the argument. Come with your markedup copy.· Identify the author’s thesis and write down all of the details the author uses to support her thesis.· Draft out a one paragraph summary using the format we have discussed in class, being very careful to focus only on what the author says and how she develops and support her claim. Make sure each sentence begins with a signal phrase, and do not borrow language directly from the article.· Decide on a thesis. The essay will include a focused and supported thesis that responds to the author’s main idea. The thesis will answer this question: based on your analysis, did you find Boddie’s argument convincing? Do you agree or disagree with the case she is making? Why? (This thesis for this essay will appear in the traditional spot, meaning that it will be the last sentence of the introduction, just following your summary.)· Next, you’ll begin to plan the reasons to support your thesis. How will you respond to Boddie’s argument? Jot down all of the ideas you have about how to respond, and turn each of those ideas, eventually, into a solid topic sentence. To develop each body paragraph, you’ll proceed to analyze each idea thoughtfully for your audience, remembering that your reader doesn’t know it the same way that you do.· Draft a conclusion. Why does this matter so much? Why should your reader care? What are the consequences for our country, our world if we don’t care about the overall question?· Peer Review. We will complete this in class together on06/07/16· Global revision. This two- to three-page argument essay is due06/08/16. Pay careful attention to how your paragraphs move, from one idea to the next, for your reader. Become not yourself, but another person, as you read. Walk that other person through your thoughts in a smooth, logical way.· Develop a Revision Plan based on feedback from peers and your instructor.· Double check your summary and essay’s contents against the original. Is this really the best way to capture the gist of Boddie’s argument? Is this honestly how she makes her case, what she says? Be fair to her in the way that you use text, and, as your Rules book suggests, if you use any phrases, sentences, or ideas from her article, put those borrowed parts into your essay using MLA citation. Mark your boundaries, using that four-part system.· Sentence-level revision, spell check, grammar check. Maybe even read sentence by sentence backwards.· Create a works cited list for this short writing. How do you create a works cited list for this op-ed?· Go back to your essay at least once a day. It’s always a different read, so read and tinker every day. Show me your understanding of both soft skills and writing process as we proceed with this last piece.
