English 2206

Enlightenment thinkers did much to upend traditional social and political structures by publicly recognizing the worth of the individual never mind social class. Using the works we have read thus far, critique the thought processes that inspired these changes. Were all the changes good? Were there unforeseen consequences? We know that these works, in part, inspired both the American and French Revolutions. Was bloodshed the inevitable result of bestowing dignity and worth on the common man?

Please follow the prompt. This only needs to be 1-2 pages. Thank you!

What to put in your reflection:

Once you complete an assessment/activity from the list, you will write a short reflection of how the assessment/activity and results relate to you personally. If you want to be more broad, you can just write a simple response of what that particular assessment/activity meant to you. Did you agree or disagree with the results? Why/Why not? A general guideline for length is 300-500 words.

   

Grading Criteria for Journals:

Journals are graded based on quality of content, not on your specific response. Example, if you disagree with something, that is fine. Your grade is based on your ability to process and reflect on the information provided in the assessment/activity. You should always relate what you found in the assessment to your personal life, future goals, career path, etc. 

Please choose from the following list below one topic to write about.

week 9 writting

Greetings! Here are the instructions for completing the Week 9 Writing Assignment.
Instructions
After you have a) completed the reading from Sophocles’ Oedipus the King and b) watched the Week 9 Video lecture, please complete the following two tasks (= do both). Because the video lecture is structured around the theories of Freud and then Lévi-Strauss, the tasks are divided accordingly.
(250 words minimum; write in complete sentences)
Freud task
1) Sophocles’ Oedipus the King dramatizes the process of learning (= coming to know) the truth of something that has already happened, for indeed most of the action has already occurred when the play begins, and what action occurs in the play itself is mostly cognitive (= people wrapping their minds around unpalatable truths). Starting perhaps with the video lecture’s discussion of Jocasta, find three characters in Oedipus the King who express a desire (on their part or on someone else’s) to not know. One of these characters can be Jocasta/Iocaste. For each character, include three things: a summary of who the character is; a quote illustrating how they bring up the desire to not know; and a summary of how they are involved in the truth that emerges in the course this play (e.g., for Oedipus, the truth that emerges is the the story of his fate becoming realized, or something like that).
Lévi-Strauss task
2) The anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss elaborated a (not entirely accepted) theory of how myth works through contradictions in life that can be expressed in terms of binary oppositions. Following the example of the story of Squid, Carrot, and the snake monster in the video lecture, write your own short myth that has as its structure two sets of binary oppositions. Start by identifying your two sets of binary oppositions (e.g., life/death; love/indifference). Then, merge your two sets of binary oppositions to get four story elements (e.g., love of life/love of death; indifference to life/indifference to death). Finally, generate a story of your creation (get creative, sky is the limit, etc.) with four episodes: each episode should be an example of one of your four story elements.

Behavior Analysis

OPERANT AND RESPONDENT CONDITIONING
This week, you explored two types of learning—operant and respondent conditioning. With respondent conditioning, individuals emit reflexive behavior in the presence of certain stimuli. With operant conditioning, behaviors continue to occur, or not, due to the consequences that follow them. As behavior analysts, we frequently use operant conditioning to teach new behaviors (and eliminate old behaviors) by manipulating the consequences that follow them. Respondent conditioning is also used by behavior analysts, for example, by establishing various reinforcers through pairing of stimuli.
For this assignment, complete the following:
Define operant and respondent conditioning.
Describe the similarities and differences between these two types of learning.
Provide two real-world, detailed examples of operant conditioning and two real-world, detailed examples of respondent conditioning.
Additional Requirements
Your assignment should also meet the following requirements:
Written communication: Should be free of errors that detract from the overall message.
APA formatting: References and citations are formatted according to current APA style guidelines. Review the Evidence and APA section of the Writing Center for more information on how to cite your sources.
Resources: 1–2 scholarly or professional resources.
Length: 2–3 double-spaced pages, in addition to the title page and references page.
SafeAssign: You are required to use SafeAssign before submitting the completed assignment to your instructor. Submit your work to SafeAssign as a draft, review the results, and make any needed changes. When you are ready, submit your assignment to the assignment area for grading.
Refer to the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Research Guide for help finding resources.
Refer to the Operant and Respondent Conditioning Scoring Guide to ensure you understand the grading criteria for this assignment.

Write an essay following the standards on the ENGRWR301 grading rubric and “Writing about Literature” guidelines. Be sure to

Write an essay following the standards on the ENGRWR301 grading rubric and “Writing about Literature” guidelines. Be sure to quote and analyze key lines from the texts.

Write on one of the following topics:

A. Design your own topic for this first assignment and clear it with me first by writing a paragraph with your proposed question and its connection to the texts we’ve been reading and our class discussions. Obviously, your topic must deal with the literature we’ve been discussing for Essay #1.

B. Analyze the persuasiveness of the argument the speaker uses to seduce in John Donne’s “The Flea” and Andrew Marvell’s “To His Coy Mistress. ” You may also want to include a contemporary poem or song of your choice; just include a copy of the poem or song lyrics with your essay. Compare the arguments in these poems. How are they similar and different? Stronger essays will discuss the use of figurative language to develop theme. Also, consider the cultural attitudes toward sexuality in the poem and how they factor into the speaker’s argument for seduction. As you discuss Marvell, also analyze his use of the carpe diem theme.

C. Analyze the use of figurative language to develop the erotic theme in ”A Love Poem” by Audre Lorde, Haiku #79 by Kalamu Ya Salaam, and “Midnight Licorice Nights” by P.J. Gibson. Stronger essays will compare the variations of the erotic theme in these poems.

D. Analyze the symbolism of the rose and its relationship to theme in “Faded Roses” by Afua Cooper, “A Single Rose” by S.D. Allen, and a poem or song of your choice that uses rose symbolism to develop a love theme. Include a copy of the poem or song lyrics with your essay. Compare the symbolism of the rose and the treatment of the theme in these poems.

E. Look at “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been” by Joyce Carol Oates and “One Holy Night” by Sandra Cisneros as coming- of-age stories centered on the theme of seduction. How do these stories about adolescent sexuality represent seduction? Consider the familial conflicts in the stories, the mixture of realism and surrealism, and the sinister nature of the male seducer in the stories.

F. Compare “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been” by Joyce Carol Oates to “The Word Love” by Chitra Divakaruni as coming-of-age stories. What are the narrator’s culture and family like? How does the narrator mature throughout the course of the story? How does the narrator’s relationship to her family change throughout the story? What theme emerges as a result? As you discuss “The Word Love,” discuss the meaning of the title in shaping the theme of love, how the narrator’s understanding of love evolves in the story, and the effect of the second-person point of view. Stronger essays will consider the use of figurative language in both stories. (Note: I think “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been” makes for a better comparison to “The Word Love;” however, if you are able to make strong connections to “One Holy Night,” you are welcome to discuss that story instead).

G. Both “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been” and “One Holy Night” contain subtle religious and mythological allusions that shape symbolism, character, and theme. Trace the effect of allusion in developing these literary elements.

a character in the book Namesake and how they reinvented themselves throughout the book

Several of the characters in The Namesake attempt to reinvent themselves in some way, including Gogol, Ashoke, Ashima, and Moushimi. Write a paper in which you develop an argument about the reinvention of one (or two) of these characters. How does he/she do it? What are the results? How much of it is under the character’s control? What is the novel ultimately saying to us about reinvention?

In making your argument, you should also include several quotations from the scholarly essays we have read (Caesar and/or Freidman). This means that you will incorporate both kinds of evidence: direct quotations form the novel to help flesh out your analysis of the text, as well as assertions made by the scholars. Think about the arguments these scholars are making, whether you agree with their logic, and how a particular assertion they make relates to the argument you are developing. You can use their statements as backup for your own assertions or as an idea to refute.

Papers should be 4-5 pages, double-spaced in Times New Roman font. Be sure to include in-text citations and a Works Cited page.

Literature Question

The essay will both compare and contrast the stories and the chosen characters.
📋 MAIN DETAILS:
Structure: Your essay should consist of three distinct parts—an introduction containing brief contextual explanations of the texts and ending with your thesis, a body section containing points that develop and support your thesis, and a conclusion. Use as many body paragraphs as you need, but be sure to have a clear rationale for the structure of the body of your paper and for each body paragraph.
Be sure to provide textual evidence (specific references to and quotes from the text) to illustrate and support your claims.
NOTE: “In Beloved, I will focus on two characters. Beloved due to her haunting Sethe and how she knows about the past and how it affected her in the present and I will focus on Sethe and how the past came back to haunt her and how she overcame the trauma that she has dealt with. And for Sing, Unburied, Sing I will definitely focus on Jojo due to his point of view on how a lot has affected him and the same with how a lot has affected Leonie. This is what I want to focus on if you’d like you can focus on it as well but you can also choose other characters”

Answer reading questions

In addition, any response not presented as a complete sentence receives a grade of zero, even if the content it contains is factually accurate. Points are deducted for incorrect grammar and confusing expression. Carefully proof-read your work before submitting it. Do not collaborate with any other student in producing your Write Now exercise.
When quoting from the story in an answer, ensure that you include signal the page number — for example, (page 31).
To open the story, Brennan’s unidentified, third-person narrator offers a sketch of Charles Runyon, whose family name may be Irish (meaning “champion”). Although he lives in the Murray Hill district of Manhattan, Charles is weekending beside the Hudson River “thirty miles from New York [City]” (page 28). Small details count for a lot in this tale, so the responses to the following will prove useful as you read on. (1.a) What is Charles’s “main interest” as a “literary gentleman”? Charles’s public “reputation” has two planks or components, one of which is his being “a wit.” (1.b) What is the other, and what does that word mean? (Use and cite a reputable source, such as the Oxford English Dictionary.) (1.c) In what activity does Charles engage “every night”? (1.d) Which 38-year-old person is on Charles’s mind, and why is that so?
QUESTION SET #2 (a through d) • (2.a) In whose home (part of the riverside community of Herbert’s Retreat) is the unmarried, 54-year-old Charles spending the weekend? (When answering, provide the family name, the wife’s first name, and the husband’s first name.) (2.b) On page 29, what phrase does Charles use in connection with Bridie; and what kind of look does that woman give Charles?
A working-class Irish immigrant to the United States, Bridie’s native tongue may be Gaeilge, the Irish language, as opposed to the (much younger) English language. (2.c) What multisyllabic English word does Bridie “[say] to herself”? (2.d) Why, in your opinion, might that word be significant, given some or other aspect of — or theme within — “The Servants’ Dance”?
QUESTION SET #3 (a and b) • (3.a) On page 30 of “The Servants’ Dance,” what color-pallet does Charles, a dandy, “select from his wardrobe”? Both Charles and Leona wear Bermuda shorts. (3.b) What color are Leona’s shorts, and from what type of material are they made? Incidentally, the name Leona means “lion,” and the text later describes Charles as “[Leona’s] lion” (page 31).
QUESTION SET #4 (a through d) • Seeing and not seeing — and knowing and not knowing — emerge as crucial issues in “The Servants’ Dance.” For example: towards the end of the tale, Charles tells himself, “I simply must remember that I am an observer” (page 57). Shaded from public view by “old greenery” (page 30), Leona’s garden contains two statues. (4.a) Which of them is closest to the Hudson River? (Later, in a huff, the down-at-heel character Edward will “[balance] himself against” this object.) (4.b) On page 31, whose “beady … eyes” observe Charles and Leona as they stroll “arm in arm to the river”?

(4.c) What cannot be seen “[e]ven from the upstairs windows” of Leona’s house? (4.d) At least in Leona’s mind, what (according to page 32) is the relationship between that architectural or built object and a “boat”?
QUESTION SET #5 (a through e) • (5.a) In Charles’s view, what did Edward Tarnac “constantly … [parade] before” the coterie (or group) of friends (page 34), among whom George Harkey, Leona’s husband, is but a newcomer? (5.b) What do you think Charles means when he asserts, “The psychiatrists know about that” (page 34)?
Charles claims that Edward’s mode of speaking — how he “express[es] himself” — indicates that he is “capable of any gaucherie” (page 34). Too often, students read unfamiliar words without making the effort to look them up. Use and cite a reputable source (such as the Oxford English Dictionary) to answer the following: (5.c) What does the term gaucherie mean, and what is the meaning of the term belligerent (found on page 35)? Dolly Maitland, Leona’s immediate neighbor, invokes the latter term to describe past behavior on Edward’s part.

(5.d) How does Dolly describe the Tenley (page 37), a hotel or lodging-place on Washington Square — a section of Manhattan long used for public burials? (5.e) What connection does Charles have with the Tenley?
QUESTION SET #6 (a through c) • (6.a) On page 38, what reason is given for moving the date of the servants’ dance or ball in the Hudson River community of Herbert’s Retreat from St. Patrick’s Day (March 17)? (6.b) What piece of clothing has Charles brought for the event?
(6.c) At the prior year’s dance, of whom (according to Charles) were some of the participating “policemen … quite jealous”? Earlier, the narrator describes that individual as “tall … blond … strongly built,” with “regular, clean-cut, blue-eyed good looks” (page 37).
QUESTION SET #7 (a through d) • (7.a) What does Lewis Maitland mean when he describes the “atmosphere” at the prior year’s iteration of the servants’ dance as “almost primitive”? (7.b) Why, during the same conversation, does Charles Runyon invoke the term “positively feudal”?
(7.c) On page 41, what does Edward “[bellow]” from the clown statue? (7.d) What is George’s “occupation,” which Charles calls “almost exotic”?
QUESTION SET #8 (a through e) • The dance affords the maids of Herbert’s Retreat an opportunity to “escape” their conservative uniforms and present themselves in “bright colors” (page 42). Bridie, however, chooses a “matronly” black outfit (page 42). The narrator relates a conversation on the subject of Edward between Bridie and two other maids: Agnes and the new, young Josie, who work for the Gieglers and Maitlands, respectively. (8.a) Who does Bridie characterize as “that little Mr. God” (page 44); and what adjective does Agnes use to describe the “house” that Edward sold (page 44)? (8.b) Why has Bridie’s attitude towards Edward shifted so that she now promotes him as “a decent sort of a man” (page 44)?
(8.c) According to Josie, in what kind of New York City store did Dolly Maitland purchase the stockings that she (Dolly) celebrates as “the sexiest things” (page 45)? Full of resentment, Josie reflects that the female servants are regularly “left sitting” (page 46) at the dance. (8.d) What causes that undesirable outcome? (8.e) What verb, beginning with “b,” does Bridie use when suggesting a strategy that the maids could adopt — in a “very polite” fashion (page 47) — at the dance?
QUESTION SET #9 (a through e) • The dancehall scene opens with George sitting atop a dais or raised platform. He is nauseously drunk on Manhattans, a situation not helped by the “two tough pork chops” consumed during his solitary supper. (9.a) On page 48, how does the narrator spell the beverage that George pours from his “large silver flask” into a glass already used by someone else? Types of drink are important in this story; later (on page 50), Leona orders a “Scotch-and-water.”

(9.b) On page 49, what noun, beginning with “m,” does the narrator use when referring to the look with which Leona “regard[s]” George — a look he “[finds] particularly repellent”? (9.c) On page 51, what expression does George utter immediately after Charles insists, “This brawl means nothing to me …. I’m here to observe, not to dance”?
Leona refers to the men at the dance as “imported stalwarts” (page 51). Leona and Dolly identify three professions represented among these male dancers. (9.d) What are those professions? While sipping ginger ale, Charles (on page 52) calls the dais on which the employers sit “a charming thought.” (9.e) Why does he “adore” his perch atop the dais?

QUESTION SET #10 (a through e) • (10.a) Beginning with the statement “You’re stuck” (page 53), what does George suggest to Leona and her peers? Charles doubts the truth of George’s assertion, referring to the servants’ “demeanor” to prove his point. (10.b) What, according to Charles, can the servants — “[t]hese people” — not control?
(10.c) What reason does Charles give for not being able to dance? (10.d) On page 55, what are George’s first three words (or sounds) in reaction to Charles’s explanation?
(10.e) On page 59, what does Bridie reveal to Charles — a matter that may leave her without “a friend in the place [i.e. Herbert’s Retreat]”?

WORD COUNT:1,100-1,300 words
Assignment: Assignment: Write a literary essay (1,100-1,300 words) based on Typical
American by Gish Jen.
Please support your ideas with QUOTES FROM THE NOVEL.
Please look at one of the main characters in the novel through the first lens
(Ethnicity/Race/Culture).

“Ethnicity/Race/Culture: This lens allows us to look at issues/conflicts/questions that
arise in a text that relate to the ethnicities, races, and cultures of the characters in the
text. It is particularly important to consider these issues when characters in the text
come from different ethnic/racial/cultural backgrounds, and the text reveals how the
characters’ diverse backgrounds might cause confusion, conflict, or meaningful
interactions. It is also important when stereotypes or prejudice results because of these
differences. An example of this is Rita Dove’s “Parsley,” where the Dominican General
Trujillo decided to kill many Haitian workers because they did not speak Spanish
“properly.” Another example could be “Two Kinds,” where the Chinese mother and her
Chinese American daughter come into conflict.”

With this lens in mind, create a thesis that addresses the
following: How does this character struggle on their quest for the American Dream/life in
America

This is a starting point. You need to develop a specific argument thesis statement and
support your points with the text.
TIPS:
-PLEASE TALK MORE ABOUT THE CHOSEN CHARACTER AND FOCUS ON THE TOPIC. Elaborate on how the character suffered from cultural differences.
For reference, you can use suppersummary.com, as it contains summaries of each chapter.
– Have a specific working thesis before you begin writing and utilize pre-writing techniques.
– Write as if the reader of your paper already knows the plot of the story/stories you are writing
about. Avoid plot summaries and focus on your ideas/analysis.
– Underline the title of the novel.
– Use quotations/passages from the novel to prove your points. Be sure and list the page number
in parentheses after your quote. If you are quoting text that is more than three lines, use MLA
block style.
– Use present tense when describing story events.

A literature review is an essay that surveys academic articles, books, and other sources that relate to an issue,

A literature review is an essay that surveys academic articles, books, and other sources that relate to an issue, area of research, or theory; it offers a descriiption, summary, and analysis of each source. A literature review is not a book review and it is not a summary or analysis of the primary source (in this case, any of the Díaz stories). Instead, a literature review is an analysis of the secondary sources you’ve chosen about the primary source.

Task: write a 750-1000 word essay that analyzes 4 secondary sources about the fiction of Junot Díaz.

Select 2 of the following 4 as REQUIRED sources; all are found in the “Additional Readings” folder found in the Fiction Unit folder in our Blackboard shell:

Kevane, Bridget. “The Fiction of Junot Díaz”
Miller, Matthew L. “Trauma in Junot Díaz’s Drown”
Ramos Pellicia, Michelle F. “Reading Junot Díaz and Filling the Void of Latinx Writers in US Literature”
Riofrio, John. “Situating Latin American Masculinity: Immigration, Empathy, and Emasculation in Junot Díaz’s Drown”
Stanton, David. “Junot Díaz one Home Ground”

Then choose 2 more sources from the library’s databases on your own.

After selecting your 4 articles/sources, write the essay (see next page for guidelines).

Guidelines for Writing a Literature Review

The essay must contain the following in any logical order:

An introduction
An overview of the issue, area of research, or theory under consideration.
A summary of each article, including specific quotes from the article that you explain in your own writing voice.
An explanation of how each work is similar to and/or different from the others (for example, are the articles on the same topic but present different points of view? Different theories? Focus on different characters or events?)
A conclusion in which you state which article(s) makes the best argument, is the most convincing, and/or makes the greatest contribution to understanding the fiction of Junot Díaz.
A Works Cited page that lists all sources.

Stay Loyal to Your Own Writing Voice

Even as you are summarizing and analyzing other people’s writing and ideas, you should remember to stay in your own writing voice. That also means citing any reference to an idea, even if you are summarizing or paraphrasing it.

Purpose: To familiarize students with the process of research and writing literature reviews.

Evaluation: Evaluation will be based on students’ ability to research acceptable sources and compose the literature review with focus, good grammar and mechanics, organization, and appropriate documentation.
