Learning Goal: I’m working on a humanities writing question and need the explanation and answer to help me learn.
The ARR paper should be in essay style and the general requirements are below.
A. Central Quotation: In the first paragraph, quote a sentence or two from the readings for the week (articles/textbook, etc.) that you think best captures the authors overall point with reference to a page number for where the quotation is found.
B. Question: Raise a question that you think is not fully or satisfactorily answered by the article or text. The question should be one of interpretation or of inquiry, not simply a question of fact.
C. Textual Connection: Connect the argument of this work to an argument or point you found in another reading for that week. Present a quote from the other articles/text (citing it properly), and explain how the present texts argument contrasts with, confirms, clarifies, or elaborates the other articles argument or point.
