Critical Strategy Analysis – Summer 2020

English 1B Writing Assignment #4

For your final short paper you will once again focus on drama. While the thesis of your paper is again wide open in terms of subject matter, this paper will have an analytical strategy – which you will determine.

Way back in June you read Chapter 47 in The Compact Bedford Introduction to Literature. Please read Chapter 47 again BEFORE beginning this assignment. Having done so, here is your assignment: You are to select a critical strategy from those presented in Chapter 47 and use that approach as the organizing strategy for an analysis of one of the following:

Othello The Moor of Venice

A Doll House

Playwriting 101: The Rooftop Lesson (a short, six page, one-act play)

Trying to Find Chinatown (also a short, six page, one-act play)

After reviewing the strategies select one with which you are either comfortable or piques your interest in some way, get familiar with this critical approach, and apply it to your thinking and writing about your selection. You might want to go outside the textbook and locate a source or two that has used your selected strategy in a literary analysis. Be careful not to plagiarize from these sources, but use them to support your application of the analytical approach you have selected.

Some good news, if anything in an assignment such as this can be considered good news, this final short paper can have a direct connection to your final longer paper for this course. The format is, as for all college writing, MLA. This, of course, means that all sources will be properly documented and cross referenced with a works cited page.

The parameters:

1. The length of the paper is a minimum of FIVE FULL pages, excluding the

Works Cited page. Three or more in-text citations are required.

2. Three rough drafts:

A. First rough draft for content – underlines and question marks

B. Second rough draft – editing draft

C. Third rough draft – proofing draft

Please label your drafts #1, #2, #3, Final Draft

3. Rough drafts are to be used for revision, editing, and proofing. Therefore, each

draft will be distinct. Printing out the same paper more than once and simply labeling them “rough drafts” or changing a word or two does not make it a rough draft. Each rough draft must evidence obvious and substantive revision.

4. The final draft is due Saturday, 7/25. The final draft must include three

rough drafts, outline, editing checklist, and proofing checklist.


(submitted outline must be typed)


I. Introduction (note: the introduction can be more than one paragraph)

A. Hook (something to draw the reader in)



B. Necessary Background



C. Thesis



D. Plan of Development



II. Body Paragraphs (note: there can be more than three supporting points and supporting points can be more than one paragraph)

A. First supporting point ____________________________________________

1. Details__________________________________________________



B. Second supporting point___________________________________________ 1. Details____________________________________________________



C. Third supporting point __________________________________________

1. Details____________________________________________________



III. Conclusion (a predominant feeling, impression, or message I want to leave my reader

with about my analysis) ______________________________________________
