Topic Choices:

  1. For this topic choice, re- read Alexie’s essay “Indian Education,” paying close attention to the ending sentence of each extended example. Choose three of the ending sentences to use as quotations to exemplify a similar experience in your own educational journey. Each body paragraph should be developed around this quotation and should focus on a particular incident. Make sure to correctly punctuate and cite the quotation. You should also have a Works Cited page at the end of the paper that cites the Alexie short story. See chapter 18, “Documenting Sources: MLA” in Patterns, specifically “Guidelines for Formatting Quotations” for in-text citations and “Essay in an Anthology” for writing the Works Cited page.
  2. For this topic choice, re-read the Tufekci essay, “Why the Post Office Makes America Great.” This topic choice comes from “Writing Workshop, ” question 2 following the Tufekci essay, page 223, which reads as follows: Assume you are writing to a Facebook friend in another country who is not familiar with American Culture. Explain some things you take for granted that would be alien to this person – for example, all-you-can-eat buffets, drive-thru pharmacies, and Uber. Make sure you include specific examples to illustrate your points. Be sure to reference the essay “Why the Post Office Makes America Great,” and acknowledge Tufekci as your source. Include parenthetical documentation for references to her essay and a works cited page. (See chapter 18 for information on MLA Documentation.) Remember that when summarizing and paraphrasing, you still must cite the source even though paraphrases and summaries are not placed in quotation marks. (See chapter 17, “Integrating Sources and Avoiding Plagiarism.”)
