Topic: You are required to use five to seven sources , no more and no fewer. Answering the following question:
Why are these five sources the very best ones to use for your research
Introduction: Your essay should begin with an introduction
that introduces your topic and describes the
range of sources available for that topic. Is this, for
example, a topic that requires study of newspaper
articles as well as scholarly articles? Does it require
finding statistics or research studies? Is it a recent
issue for which there aren’t many sources of information or
are there many books and articles to choose
from? The introduction should end with a thesis that tells
your main criteria for choosing your sources.
What was most important to you as you chose these sources?
Body of Essay
Dedicate one paragraph to each of your five sources. Each
paragraph should provide a
brief summary of the source and should tell why you chose
that particular source for your paper. Did
you choose it because it was important for you to have a
range of different types of sources, for
example? Did you choose it because you wanted the most
up-to-date information? Did you determine
that it is credible and in-depth? Is it particularly
relevant for your topic? Did you want to choose
scholarly sources that would add more detail and depth to
your paper? Did you choose sources that
represent various sides of an issue? All of these are
possibilities, but you can discuss any reason that
you think is important for choosing that particular source.
In your conclusion, you can discuss any barriers you see to
completing your research, what
you hope to accomplish or understand through your sources,
or any additional sources you hope to find.

Choose one of the questions below to answer for this assignment. Please remember to copy/paste the question with your response and analysis. You should choose a question that you find interesting and believe you can answer in an engaging manner. You will want to support your response not only with good logic and explanations on your part but also with pertinent passages (short quotations are best) from the texts that pertain to the question you have chosen. Keep your response focused on answering the question; avoid plot summary.
• Your response should be in the form of a typical essay (probably four to six paragraphs), with a short introduction, thesis statement, and supporting paragraphs with a conclusion.

Consider the Arch of Titus. What is it? Who commissioned its erection? Why was it built? What does it symbolize? This arch was incredibly controversial at the time. Why might the citizens of Jerusalem view it differently than the citizens of Rome? In an essay, describe the arch, its architectural features, its symbolism, and the controversy that surrounds it. You may include a picture or depiction of it in your submission. You should include a bibliography page to indicate your sources.

100 points): Poems for Comparison
This paper should be an interpretive paper which compares the use of symbol, imagery or theme in two poems of your choice, by two different poets. “Comparison” does not necessarily mean the poems are different. They may be the same. Make sure you understand how to cite poetry in an academic paper.
Technical Requirements:
minimum 750 words
MLA formatting throughout, including in-text citations and a Works Cited page
Adequately compares the interpretation of specific qualities in set of poems. Simply comparing elements is not enough; you MUST compare possible interpretations as well.
Just like essay one, be sure you have an appropriate title and that you’re avoiding first person unless it adds something significant to your paper. Feel free to revisit the essay one guidelines in lesson four if you need refreshers on what either of those mean.
Uses at least one critical, academic source as support for your interpretation (see the Essay One guidelines for choosing critical academic sources). If you can’t find quality academic writing about your chosen poem or poet, consider citing writing about other similar poets or other types of literature from the same period or on the same topic. Everything which appears on your Works Cited page needs to be cited in the body of your essay.
As with #1, please upload a .doc or .docx file. When I have thirty of these to do, it adds a lot of needless time when I have to go into Google Docs or take the extra steps to open a .pages document. PDFs aren’t as annoying to work with but they limit my ability to give detailed feedback.
In general, remember to refer back to the “questions to ask yourself” in Lesson 4.
Try to avoid doing the obvious here! If you can find sample essays online talking about how two specific poems relate to each other, then don’t write about those two poems. Take the time to come up with your own two-poem pairing rather than grabbing an example from Sparknotes.
Your paper is worth 100 points. If you receive an unsatisfactory grade on this paper, you have a chance to revise the paper next week. Most students will have much room for improvement. I will be grading your paper on the merits of a “finished” product, so the bar is very high for the first draft. I will offer suggestions for revision for all students and the choice to revise will be up to you.
Proper MLA formatting in both the paper and the Works Cited page.
750 word minimum (12 point Times New Roman)
One academic, critical source to support your interpretation.
An obvious thesis statement, organized paragraphs, clean grammar and punctuation, and no plot summary.
