Express why the interpretive problem is worth examining (the “so what?” factor).
Learning Goal: I’m working on a english project and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.For this semester, you are earning a portion of your final grade by completing the peer-evaluation experience.For the best experience, you should have completed an 85% complete draft of the current assignment, including MLA/APA citations.These drafts will be discussed using the Peer Evaluation/Rubric found in the Peer Evaluation Module during the correspondSUBMISSION: Paper must be word-processed with Microsoft Word or Google Docs and submitted to IvyLearn in the Assignment link as an upload. Emailed works and weblinks will not be accepted. For the Text Analysis assignment, please click here: Text AnalysisTEXT ANALYSIS ASSIGNMENTFor this project, we will explore two texts (novels, films, television shows, song lyrics, and so on) of your choice (suggested text parings below) by writing a paper presenting an interpretive problem found in the texts and exploring possible solutions. Rather than only report on your thinking, you will write in a more focused manner to explore an interpretive problem in the text(s). Ideally, in the course of working on this paper, you will resolve the problem in a way that is satisfying for you and convincing to the reader. However, it is possible—even likely—that your work on the problem will advance your understanding of the problem and clarify its dimensions for your reader, but that your paper will still not reach any conclusions that might be called a solution or a resolution for the problem you have examined.In finishing Part One of this project, it might be useful to look up biographical details about the films’ screenwriters and directors. In addition, it would make sense to quote from the text you are examining, so that you may illuminate passages for readers or use them to make some interpretive point.You will complete the project in two stages. In the first, you will produce a two-three page draft as described above. For Part 2 you will be adding other voices to the discussion through the peer review:• You’ll be talking with others in class; and• In addition, you might wish to conduct some additional research to find out what scholars in the field have said about your text. You might consider .Project ObjectivesThis project will give us a chance to work toward achieving some of the following course end competencies as stated in the syllabus.Additional GuidelinesSuccessful papers will:• Be between two and three pages of actual writing. This page count excludes works cited/references page material and title page material if using APA. Papers not meeting the minimum length will receive a failing grade. Set up a clear context for the discussion. They will show attention to readers by mentioning the title and author of the work, and introducing the basic topic of the paper or the perspective that is the focus of the interpretation. They will follow the Jigsaw Puzzle format of constructing their topic sentence and use Street Signs to show how they have chunked like information together.
Express why the interpretive problem is worth examining (the “so what?” factor). They show how the question the writer is pursing is an important one to consider when reading the text, and that the discoveries made in response to the question have significant implications.
Logically and thoroughly present responses to the interpretive problem. They attempt to answer the question posed in a logical, careful, and detailed manner, and spend time developing and “mulling over” the problem and its various interpretive solutions.
Refer specifically to the text according to MLA or APA style. They refer to specific words and lines in the story, so readers can see how you moved from the lines in the story to the interpretive statements offered about those lines. They refer to specific words and lines from other sources, and do more than simply drop such quotes into the text; they go on to explain why the quote is essential to thinking through the interpretive problem. All quotes and paraphrases are documented carefully and consistently according to MLA or APA standards.
Consider the implications of the findings. They reflect on the interpretive question posed and on the discoveries made in response to it to state further conclusions and present the implications of those findings.
Construct a thoughtful and scholarly title: Determination: A Look at Dayton and Faris’ Little Miss Sunshine and Joon-Ho Bong’s Snowpiercer, rather than Little Miss Sunshine vs. Snowpiercer. Mini Lesson: Versus vs. verses. “Versus” is a preposition (from Latin) and it means “in opposition to.” As in, the Phillies versus the Nationals is tonight’s local baseball game. “Verses” is the plural of “verse,” which can mean a segment of a poem or song, or a numbered section of The Bible.
Incorporate an MLA Works Cited or APA References list of, at minimum, the two films utilized in this project. Accordingly, TWO CITATIONS ARE REQUIRED; i.e. the two films.
Edit successfully eliminating grammatical and mechanical errors.
