the completed essay must be submitted to the Essay #3 drop box in Blackboard no later than the times and dates
listed above. One point will be deducted from your Essay #3 grade for every day that your text selection is not
submitted after the deadline. The deadline penalty policy from the syllabus applies to all essays not submitted

• 2-3 pages (2 complete pages minimum, not including works cited page)

• Conduct no research and use no other sources than the subject text (it is inappropriate to look up any
information that ends up in your essay other than textual evidence from the subject text; an automatic 30

• Do NOT wait until the last minute; manage your time and obligations carefully.
This assignment requires you to read a text and then make an argument about a point of meaning, interpretation,
or understanding based upon your reading of the text. Review the textual analysis notes before starting work on
Choose one article from the Texts for Essay 3 folder on Blackboard (select only from the choices in that folder).
Submit the title and author of that text to the text selection drop box by the deadline. Once you have chosen the
text, write a thesis-based essay that answers one or more of the following questions:
• What is the text’s point and why is that point important?
• How and why does the text use logos, ethos, and/or pathos to support its point?
• Who is the intended audience of the text, and what does the text want the audience to think or do (and
Please note that all of the questions concern the text rather than the writer. Do not write a summary report on
the text; your audience is an informed peer who is already familiar with the text. Do not write a biography of
the writer; focus on answering the question or questions you have chosen. Do not write an essay on the topic of
the subject text; focus on answering the question or questions you have chosen (Example: If you choose David
Kirby’s essay “Inked Well,” do not write an essay about tattoos; write an essay that answers one or more of the
topic questions about his essay). Do not write an essay discussing the contexts or surrounding events of the
subject text (Example: If you choose Dr. King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” do not write an essay about the
Civil Rights Movement; write an essay that answers one or more of the topic questions about his letter). Do not

write an essay arguing with the author or arguing his/her point for the author. Do not rewrite the subject text in
your own words as your essay.
DO write an essay in which you answer one or more of the assigned questions about the subject text. The
sample essay available is not perfect, but it will give you an idea of how to approach this assignment.
I strongly recommend reading several selections far in advance of the essay due date so you can have time to
choose a text you will want to write about. Do not choose based on the title alone or wait until the last minute.
