Any topic (writer’s choice)

This exercise should help you move forward with your term papers. I want you to submit a sentence + a substantial paragraph from the term paper, which does the following

State the overall argument/claim/thesis of your term paper as a separate sentence
Select a body paragraph from your term paper or write one make sure that it includes detailed analysis of one of your primary texts, and that it is connected to the overall argument.

Use a statement or idea from one of your secondary sources to advance your argument (so you might find a concept there, or some supporting information, or an argument that you want to contest). The challenge is to be as efficient as possible (so that I see your argument and analysis mostly, but you bring it into dialogue with your secondary source)
Integrate b. and c. as elegantly as possible
Give the works cited list for the paragraph in MLA format
