Every other day in class is a writing day. Your edited drafts are worth 50 points each, so that's 200 points of drafting. Follow the due dates!! If you are not going to be in class for any reason (AP testing, ditching, Starbucks run, making up a test somewhere else, etc), make sure you email me your edited draft. Nobody else should email them to me. They need to be typed and printed. If they are handwritten, they will not recieve feedback. 

 

FAQs about the Essay

How do I insert a thesis into my paper?


The easiest way is to include elements of what critical theory is or how we apply critical theory to literatre (remember chapter 1?). Then, transition into a statement that includes the graphic novel and critical theory. For example, "Critical theory can be applied in various ways with the graphic novel, I Kill Giants."

How do I cite the chapters and the graphic novel?

Kelly, Joe, writer. I Kill Giants. Art by JM Ken Nimura.
