Link to readings regarding college athletes: Option 3: Perform a rhetorical analysis of a reading/song/music video of your choice (the reading must be approved by me), and do some historical research to support your analysis of the reading/text. How to succeed on Essay #3: · Have a strong introduction and thesis statement · The type of claim you develop in your essay should be clear · Adequate development of argument/analysis through use of multiple paragraphs--in other words, try to avoid my needing to comment “develop this point further” or posing questions throughout your essay · Make sure that you have discussed all necessary points to explain or prove your thesis/ claim · Have detailed, focused paragraphs (one main idea per paragraph) that are arranged in a logical order · Use topic sentences, and employ transitions when necessary · Cite a minimum of 2 sources; the quality of these sources will also be evaluated · Use quotations, summaries, and paraphrases when necessary · Employ ethos (establish your credibility), pathos (appeal to emotions), and logos (organization of material and/or facts/data) · Have strong conclusions · Try to have a creative title · Adhere to MLA guidelines · Always remember to proofread and format your paper neatly · Avoid using “you” in your research paper, as well as in any essay that you submit for a college course.
