critical thinking skills

Each student is required to complete the term project, which is an 8-10 page research paper in APA Style. The project should have 8-10 pages not counting the cover, abstract and reference page. I want to see your critical thinking skills on display and not a string of quotes written by published authors. Your analysis is what is needed for a successful paper. At this point in your educational journey, you should have solid substance and proper academic formatting in your college-level writing assignments. Students will be graded on both so make sure you turn in your best work.

Faulkner’s story

Written Response

To wrap up this unit on integrating sources, you will now read an essay from your textbook. You will read two pieces:

  • William Faulkner’s (2019) “A Rose for Emily” (p. 851)
  • and Bailey Basinger’s (2019) “Tension, Contradiction, and Ambiguity: Gender Roles in ‘A Rose for Emily'” (p. 838)

While this is not a literature class, literature provides a good opportunity to not only think critically, one of the important goals of this course, but to practice quoting and citing.

Task:

  • First, read Faulkner (2019). A rose for Emily. In R. Bullock & M.D. Goggin (Eds.), The Norton field guide to writings with readings (5th ed., pp. 851-860). W.W. Norton.
    • You may also choose to listen to the text as you follow along by clicking here.
  • Second, read Basinger’s analysis of Faulkner’s famous story.
  • When you finish, answer Question. 3 on p. 844. As you focus on the question, “What other quotations might she have used,” identify at least three quotes from Faulkner’s story. Explain the quote first. Then, explain how and why you would use each one in revising Basinger’s paper.
    • Please follow this method:
      Response to Question 3.
      100+ words

      “New Quote 1”
      1-2 sentence explanation of the quote itself
      1-2 sentence connection of the quote to Basinger’s argument

      “New Quote 2”
      1-2 sentence explanation of the quote itself
      1-2 sentence connection of the quote to Basinger’s argument

      “New Quote 3”
      1-2 sentence explanation of the quote itself
      1-2 sentence connection of the quote to Basinger’s argument

  • Your response should be 200+ words
  • Be sure to quote, cite, and reference Faulkner’s story and Basinger’s analysis.
