Choose one of the following three topic ideas, or create one of your own. 1. VOICE is the distinctive style or manner of the narrator. In literature, voice communicates the writer’s intensity.Compare and contrast the voice of two pieces that we have read. Consider in what ways differing narrative voice affects the way that the reader understands the story and whether or not the voice is effective. As an example, Whitman’s “I Hear America Singing” begins in first person;however, he primarily recounts the American experience as one where he is observing others in their daily lives. Hughes begins in first person and continues to narrates an observation of experiences that remains in first person and become more and more personal. The voices used most frequently in our readings are:
First person: writer relates events from own point of view using “I” “me”Third person objective: writer tells story as if he or she is watching others and is not a part of the storyThird person subjective: writer tells story from the point of view of one of the characters. 2. THEME is the central topic of a text. It might be a single idea or might take. See “Tips on Themes” attachment for suggestions to identify thematic elements.Compare and contrast the themes in two stories. For example, consider how the womans role in society is highlighted in The Story of an Hour and The Yellow Wallpaper,” how life choices are examined in Frosts Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening and The Road Less Traveled, perspective and human behavior are explored in Shakur’s “The Rose that Grew from Concrete” and Angelou’s “Caged Bird.” You might also choose to compare and contrast the presentation of Americas as noted in Whitman’s “I Hear America Singing,” Hughes’s “I Sing America,” or Alvarez’s “I too Sing America.”
3. CHARACTERS Compare and contrast two characters. The characters may be in the same work, such the spouses Shukumar and Shoba in “A Temporary Matter” or they may be characters in separate readings, such as Melvilles Bartleby and Robinsons Richard Cory.
Write a brief summary on Civil Liberties Issue
focuses on the history of Indigenous representation in Canada. Students have the opportunity to engage with texts, films, articles, photographs, etc. that either represent Indigenous peoples or consider how they have been represented through images. Students will then consider the ways in which the image(s)/texts compare/relate to Jeff Lemires images from Secret Path (a new text, published 2016) with respect to representation of Indigenous people and their culture(s).
To be clear, you will need to construct an argument about Secret Path; this book will be the focus of your essay. You will consider the ways in which it fits within, or rejects, the tradition of indigenous representation. Is, for example, a graphic novel a powerful medium though which to confront reconciliation? Does the text subvert earlier assumptions about Indigenous people, allowing us to see Indigenous culture through a new lens? Or, does the text make use of similar stereotypes that you have discovered in your research? Does the fact that this book is written by white men matter? Why, or why not?
In order to answer questions such as these (questions that could formulate a strong thesis), you must study images of Indigenous peoples in Canada and contrast and compare them with the images from Secret Path. It will be your choice if you choose to focus solely on the images of Secret Path or to include an analysis of the music that accompanies it (a download for the accompanying music, written and performed by Gord Downie, is located at the back of each book). Keep in mind that considering the music will offer an accompanying narrative that may well contribute to your reading and/or understanding of the images. This, in itself, would be an interesting topic to consider.
This is a formal essay; it will have an introductory paragraph with thesis statement, a main body, a conclusion, and a works cited page. This essay should have a word count of at least 1700 (not exceeding 2000). This is a research assignment where quotations & images from both primary and secondary sources must be used and referenced using MLA (Modern Language Association) format. Although I will be teaching you the basic rules of MLA formatting, please know that copies of the MLA handbook can be found in the reference section of the library and are also accessible online. Learning to use MLA properly helps to avoid the serious offence of plagiarism: the borrowing/use of ANY idea from another source MUST be referenced accordingly. Please avoid using online sources unless you clear them with me; ebooks, journals articles and online encyclopedic entries found using MRU databases, ARE acceptable. Your essay will make use of at least FIVE other sources, all of which Ill find on your works cited page, in addition to Secret Path. I should find a minimum of six images in your essay. I have arranged a library session for your class. Well be meeting in a computer lab on the main floor of the library. our librarian, will be teaching you how to research for reputable sources. She will also spend time talking about MLA and documenting sources.
