Due on Canvas by 10:59 pm on July 18.
o Save your PowerPoint as a pdf and submit it to Canvas. I advise against using Prezi because I can’t open those presentations on Canvas. You may need to make time to come to campus and work on your presentation here.
Other important notes:
• Everything should be written in complete sentences.
• Cite EVERYTHING that does not come from your own head using MLA Style
• Because you are uploading it as a pdf file, I will not be able to see any animations, transitions, music, etc that you use, so be sure to make each slide visually interesting.
Here’s an example of what your annotated bibliography slides should look like:
Lamott, Anne. Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. Anchor Books, 1995.
Lamott’s book offers honest advice on the nature of a writing life, complete with its insecurities and failures. Taking a humorous approach to the realities of being a writer, the chapters in Lamott’s book are wry and anecdotal and offer advice on everything from plot development to jealousy, from perfectionism to struggling with one’s own internal critic. In the process, Lamott includes writing exercises designed to be both productive and fun. Blah blah blah, continue on for another two sentences.
Here’s an example of what a correct in-text citation looks like:
According to John Smith, the characters are often fully brought to life only after the work is entirely finished.
According to Doe, this author is the best ever (45).
The author is the best ever (Doe 45)

Dickinson is well-known for what many consider a strange or even morbid fascination with death. Dickinson certainly did not view death in the same way that most people do, but her views on death, like most of her writing and even her own life, are decidedly up to interpretation.
Prompt:
After reading “Because I Could Not Stop for Death,” choose ONE of the prompts below and write a response of AT LEAST 300 words:
Some critics believe that the poem shows death kindly escorting the speaker to some sort of paradise. Others believe that death comes in the form of a deceiver, carrying her off to destruction. Which do you believe? Why? Offer proof from the poem to back up your belief.
Do you believe the speaker’s relaxed attitude toward death? Sometimes we pretend to be confident when we’re nervous and brave when we’re scared. Is this an example of that? Provide evidence from the poem to support your answer/argument.

Now that you have created your outline, you are ready to begin drafting your literary analysis essay. In this learning module, you will review formal vs. informal writing and APA page formatting to guide you as you write your literary analysis.
This week, you will be writing and and submitting your literary analysis essay. Be sure that you have reviewed your instructor’s feedback on the outline you prepared in Week 2 and have made changes to your outline accordingly.
Assignment Requirements
Using your outline as a reference, write (and revise) your essay. Your essay must be at least 1,000 words in length (do not count the title page or references page in your word count). Format your draft in APA style (see instructions above) and include the following elements:
Title page,
Introduction and thesis statement,
Three fully developed body paragraphs with properly integrated and cited supporting quotes,
Conclusion, and
References page
Many students make the mistake of writing a first draft and then submitting it for a grade. Failure to revise and edit a draft often results in a lower grade or even a failing grade. A typed draft may look like it’s done, but it often has many flaws that need to be addressed through the processes of revising and editing.
The process of revising and editing is more than simply correcting spelling and punctuation errors.
Revising is the process of evaluating your work for global issues, such as
effectiveness of your argument,
logical order of ideas,
clear presentation of ideas, and
amount and quality of evidence.
Writers should expect to produce multiple versions of a draft during the revision process.
Editing is the process of evaluating your work for sentence-level issues, such as
punctuation,
spelling.
APA citations. and
formatting.
Using the attached revision checklist is strongly recommended. Scroll to the top of this page for a link to the checklist. The video below further reviews the revising and editing processes.
