It is a literary analysis of the short story, “Slowly, Slowly in the wind” by Patricia. I will attach the pages of the short story in the files. Below are the criteria for the essay:
Intro: Introduction defines key concepts in relation to the central object of analysis.
Thesis: Thoughtful, specific thesis that moves beyond (or complicates) classroom discussion, effectively states the paper’s position and directs the remainder of the essay.
Evidence and Analysis: Effectively select, incorporates, and explain how quoted evidence supports and/or complicates the thesis.
Structure: Logical overall organization with clear transitions between ideas. Body paragraphs generally follow this model: topic sentence -> evidence -> interpretation
Grammar: Writing is grammatically correct with a clear, professional tone.
Citations: APA or MLA citations are correct, complete, and consistent (both in-text and bibliography).
