Remember that this must be an argument essay, not a summary and not a report. Your argument MUST be clearly stated. Do not make me try to figure it out.
Basically, there are three strategies for constructing arguments for these essays:
It can be a literary argument.
It can be a historical argument.
It can frame a contemporary societal argument.
Do not forget that no matter which strategy you pick, this essay is an essay about the short story you have selected. Do not forget to incorporate the story into your argument. An essay on The Lottery that JUST argues the death penalty should be abolished would not be sufficient because it is not tied to the literature.
I will post a link to an student paper on The Lottery on Canvas to stimulate ideas.
A good essay should have a hook, a clear thesis statement, and a thoughtful conclusion. Your argument should be supported with evidence.
Your essay should be a minimum of 1000 words. It should be typed, double spaced, Times New Roman or Calibri 11 or 12 point font. Use proper MLA format
