Research Paper

The purpose of this assignment is to help you use writing to deepen your understanding of a play (or plays) that we have read, to develop empathy for a character, and to provide the opportunity for you to explore further some ideas discussed in class. Your goal is to demonstrate connections between various elements in a play (or plays); for example, characters, setting, themes, etc. Your ideas need to be expressed in a clear thesis statement, and supported with a lively, well-developed and organized discussion using relevant textual examples. The thesis must be submitted to me for approval prior to the paper itself. You must focus your research on a play (or plays) that we’ve examined in class this semester.



Length: 10-12 pages, typed, double-spaced, 12-point standard font (Times New Roman) Format: APA Due date: See syllabus
