Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein

Now that you have completed Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, you are in a good position to consider what critics have written about the novel. You will need a total of two critiques (also known as critical analysis essays) for this assignment.
First, use the selection of links below to locate a critical analysis essay written about the 1818 version of Mary Shelley’s novel. You may focus most of your attention on this first critique. If the author of your critique is not specified, focus on the publication of the critique.
Choose from among these sources:
Romantic Circle’s Critiques:
Critique 1
Critique 2
Critique 3
Critique 4
Critique 5
Critique 6
Professor Naomi Hetherington’s critique
The questions in the study guides should have helped you evaluate this criticism in your head. Now it’s time to write it down!
Your evaluation may go more smoothly if you approach the guiding questions in this order:
Evaluate the critic/author:
Who wrote the criticism you read? What credentials does the author have? (If you are using a valid source, you should be able to find these easily)
Find the thesis of the article:
What is the thesis of the critical article you’ve chosen? What point does the author want to make about Frankenstein?
Evaluate the thesis:
Do you agree with this thesis? Why or why not? We’ve covered many ideas in the study guides. Can you find points within the guides that support your agreement or disagreement with the critical writer(s)? Look for new supporting information rather than revisiting the same ones the critics have chosen.
Evaluate the support:
Whether you agree or disagree with the thesis, does the critic provide sufficient research from the text and outside references to make a strong case? What does the article have for support from the text or outside sources? In your opinion, what makes these references valid? Do you feel the author uses this support properly?
Next, locate a second critique about the novel that includes ideas somewhat similar (genre classification, for instance) to any of the discussions you have in your essay. The second critique can either support or refute any of the claims in your paper. The objective of this portion of the essay is to further support your opinion of the primary critic’s thesis or support. Therefore, for example, if you choose a secondary article that refutes any of your claims, you will need to counteract those ideas to bring the focus of your essay back in alignment with your essay’s thesis (your personal opinion of how the primary critic is either correct or incorrect in his or her thesis claim and/or how the first critic is either effective or ineffective in his or her support). Every discussion in this essay should ultimately support the claim you make in your thesis.
For instance, if the first critic argues that Shelley’s writing is juvenile, and if you agree, does the second critic also support this thesis? How so? If the second critic does not support your assessment of the first critic’s thesis, what evidence can you use from the text to argue that the second critic is incorrect? Consider another example: if the first critic believes the novel is autobiographical, and if you disagree, does the second critic help you argue your own view of the first critic’s thesis? If so, how? Perhaps the second critic disagrees with your view and feels the novel is autobiographical– if that’s the case, be prepared to use evidence from the text to refute the second critic’s thesis and support your own argument. Using two critiques in this way will allow you to create a polished, comprehensive Evaluation Essay that allows you to connect your own ideas to those of seasoned critics.
In addition to addressing each of the evaluative components above, develop your essay so it has a clear introduction, body, and conclusion. You must include an evaluative thesis statement in both the introduction and the conclusion. Ensure that each of your claims is supported with valid evidence from the literary criticism you have chosen; the novel, Frankenstein; and/or the study guides.
Using proper MLA style, insert parenthetical citations for all borrowed information in addition to a Works Cited page for Frankenstein and your chosen literary critiques; you are not required to cite the study guides if you use them.
Helpful Hints: For a thesis statement, try answering a question like: How and how well does this piece of criticism state and support its argument regarding Frankenstein?
You might use these as possible guidelines in crafting your thesis statement:
(Critic, aka author of the critique) uses (add critic title) to (add an adjective to describe the effectiveness of the argument such as “adequately” or “inadequately”) argue that (add critic’s thesis) by (explain why and/or include your support).
OR
(Critic)’s (add critique title) (add an adjective to describe the effectiveness of the argument such as “adequately” or “inadequately”) argue that (add critic’s thesis) because (explain why and/or include your support).
More specific thesis examples:
John Smith uses “Frankenstein Critique Essay” to adequately argue that Victor’s mother created the first monster by coddling Victor as a boy.
OR
John Smith’s “Frankenstein Critique Essay” does not effectively argue that Victor’s mother created the first monster because the novel Frankenstein too strongly supports inherent good or bad, which means nurturing roles cannot be held responsible.

Mexican dances.

The Classification assignments requires you to organize a topic into categories and then
provide examples of what characteristics fit into each category.
You have several options for this assignment, so you will need to choose one:
 Classify the types of writers
 Classify the types of bosses/supervisors
 Classify the types of monsters
 Classify the types of characters
 Classify the types of heroes
 Classify the types of dance
 Classify the types of teachers
 Classify the types of roommates
 Classify the types of dates
 Classify the types of mothers
Keep in mind that these are general topics. You may need to further subdivide these general
topics in order to have a specific enough topic for your essay. For instance, dance may be
divided into cultural dances, for one, and then even further into Mexican dances. Famous
guitarists could be divided into rock guitarists, and then further into bass guitarists.
Regardless of the topic you choose, you will need to identify its classifications and provide
enough evidence to prove that your classifications are correct. This evidence (details,
reasons, and/or examples) needs to be corroborated by at least one other credible1
source.
Failure to use a credible source for support will constitute a point deduction. This resource
from the course will help you understand more about evaluating sources.
Properly cite others’ ideas and language according to MLA guidelines (this resource from the
course will help). If you use any exact words from your source, you must put those exact
words in quotation marks and included a parenthetical citation. If you put source material
into your own words (i.e., if you paraphrase), you will not need quotation marks, but you will
need a parenthetical citation. Make sure that your parenthetical citations correspond to the
works cited entry. In addition to the evidence, you must explain how the evidence you
present proves that your classifications are correct.
1 Please note: Basic dictionary sources, user-edited websites (e.g., Wikipedia, eHow, etc.), and sites that house
databases of quotations are not considered “credible” sources. You will lose points in the Research category of the
rubric if your sources aren’t credible.
To make your classifications clear, examine only one classification per body paragraph. The
body of the essay should follow a logical progression. You may choose to organize your essay
based on any one of the following:
 Move from the least important classification to the most important classification
 Move from the most important classification to the least important classification
 Move from the largest category to the smallest one
 Move from the smallest category to the largest one
 If the classifications occur in a set space, move from left to right OR right to left
 If the classifications occur in a set space, move from back to front OR front to back
As with all college writing, your essay should have a strong thesis statement in addition to an
introduction, body, and conclusion.
Here is an idea of how you might introduce your essay if you were classifying types of sports
fans2
: On a clear, warm evening in June, thousands of Americans might be getting ready to
watch a baseball game. These fans may stop by concessions to grab a hot dog and cold drink
before ambling to their seats, and they might be in the grandest arena or in the smallest of
baseball parks. But regardless of location, any given baseball game will find among its fans
the following three types: the Fair-weather Fan, the Diehard Fan, and the Newbie.
Tip: Notice how this introduction provides vivid description of the scene while preparing the
reader for what the main focus will be.
As seen in the example above, you might use this as a simple guideline in crafting your thesis:
The three most ubiquitous baseball fans are the (first fan type), the (second fan type), and (third fan
type).
The guidelines for this assignment are as follows:
Length: This assignment should be at least 500 words.
Header: Include a header in the upper left-hand corner of your writing assignment with the
following information:
 Your first and last name
 Course Title (Composition II)
 Assignment name (Classification Essay)
 Current Date
2 NOTE: Because this topic is used here as an example, you should not choose this as your own topic.

Communication via email is pervasive in most workplaces.

Communication via email is pervasive in most workplaces. Email messages may range from informal to formal, depending on the intended recipients. Writing in any formal, professional context must demonstrate awareness of audience. If you are writing an email to a co-worker concerning a small matter, you do not have to be very formal as long as your language is appropriate. If you are sending an email to a group of people such as an entire department’s personnel or all employees in the company, then your email message should assume a respectful, formal business voice acceptable for all levels of recipients.
Content:
Imagine you are a supervisor overseeing a small department of five employees. A new policy concerning the use of personal time in the workplace has been established. It is your job to inform your employees of the new policy, implement it, and ascertain its compliance within your department.
Send an email message to all five employees containing the following information:
Tell employees they may not use company resources for personal use, such as checking social media.
Employees may not make personal telephone calls, emails, or text while on the clock.
Employees may not use company things for personal gains, such as printing.
Explain what employees have to do in case of an emergency where they need to make a personal call.
Explain to employees that the policy has a three-strikes-and-you-are-out rule.
Explain what each strike entails at your own discretion.
Convey confidence in your employees’ professional cooperativeness and ability to follow rules.
Make sure your employees understand that should they have any questions or concerns, they may speak with you about them.
End the email message on a positive, encouraging note.

Writing Prompt for the Personal Essay: Remembering Who You Were
For this paper, you will write an essay in which you select a particular memory of an event, experience, person, or place and use to explore how you came to be who you are. In and of themselves, memories are not important, nor do they teach us anything. We must, as thinkers and writers, examine our memories with curiosity and a sense of possibility in order to learn something new, understand the importance of a moment, and to decide who we will continue to become. Many disciplines (sociology, psychology, biology) require individuals to use memories to create new theories and to develop strategies for achieving particular goals. Although there is no “right way” to structure a piece of personal writing, you may want to consider the following as possible patterns of development for each kind of paper.
Organizing a Personal Essay
Draft an introduction that sets the scene and captures the interest of a reader.

Present a complication or conflict that must be resolved in some way before the end of the story. This conflict can be between the author and self, between the author and others, or between the author and his or her environment. It could be a change, discovery, or challenge.

Explore the complication and conflict in rich, vivid language in a way that allows the reader to understand that there is a central theme or question that may or may not be stated explicitly but is significant.

Conclude with the resolution of the conflict (even if the resolution itself is ambivalent or ambiguous). Include the understanding or revelation that presents the moment of growth, transformation, or clarity for the author.
