Draft a text wrestling essay that analytically explores some part of your text using the strategies detailed in this section. Your essay will advance an interpretation that will

· help your audience understand the text differently (beyond basic plot/comprehension); and/or

· help your audience understand our world differently, using the text as a tool to illuminate the human experience.

Keep in mind, you will have to re-read your text several times to analyze it well and compile evidence. Consider forming a close reading discussion group to unpack your text collaboratively before you begin writing independently.

Your essay should be thesis-driven and will include quotes, paraphrases, and summary from the original text as evidence to support your points. Be sure to revise at least once before submitting your final draft.

This essay entails a polished, “academic” tone. Although you need not use a thesaurus to find all the fanciest words, your voice should be less colloquial than in a descriptive personal narrative. 

Before you begin, consider your rhetorical situation:

Subject:

Occasion:

How will this influence the way you write?

Audience:

Purpose:

Submission Guidelines: Submit a .docx or .pdf file in 

MLA format
 that contains your text wrestling essay. This assignment should be at least 1250 words long (approximately 5 pages long when double-spaced). You may write more than four pages if you need to.
