In your paper for this course you are asked to compare two or three of the texts we have discussed in class. Please post your idea for a paper, a specific question you would like to explore in a 5-6 page essay. Briefly introduce the question by telling us why it is worth raising. (Remember, good questions are questions that do not have an obvious or right answer but require the writer to build an argument.)
If someone else has posted a question close to the one that you have been thinking about, please expand on that particular posting (click the reply button at the header of that posting and respond directly to the suggested question). How could the question be framed in a more focused way? How could it be posed more clearly, in more precise language? What additional questions could one ask to deepen the exploration?
It is less
important to ask an original question than to help others and yourself
refine questions that are worth asking.
