Assignment Evaluation: Analysis essays must be narrowly focused and logically organized to
appeal to readers. Your essay will be evaluated on its focus and organization, as well as the use of
specific evidence that contributes to your readers’ understanding of your topic. All papers must
contain a thesis that explains the causal connections between causes and effects of a given event
or trend. All essays will benefit from an organizational “essay map” that previews the subtopics of
the argument. Use of analogies, similes, and metaphors may be helpful to your readers. Papers
should be free of mechanical and typographical errors.
Must be written in High Style – means no contractions (don’t, can’t, won’t) no slang, no first person pronouns (I, we, me, us, my, our) and no
second person pronouns (you and your), and as sophisticated a sentence structure and strong a vocabulary as you can muster.
