Ask the PVCC librarians for help, if necessary. 3)Decide what you will write about through note-taking, research, brainstorming, and writing a thesis statement on a particular aspect of a theme found in the novel: Your thesis statement should have two elements: 1) a limited topic (centered on one focused aspect of the work) 2) an arguable central idea (a strong point/argument that demands proof) Your thesis should be supported by three or four main points and several quotations from the novel (the “primary source”) and the “secondary sources.” 4)Consider whichfour to six “secondary sources” you will use. You must quote and cite all of your sources in FINAL DRAFT(see MLA guidelines, PVCC Library). 5)See sample student term paper draft on Canvas in Assignments. 6)Brainstorm/write ROUGH DRAFT. Incorporate your research into your rough as much as possible. Mon Nov. 30.-Wed Dec. 2: PEER REVIEW rough drafts using a peer review sheet that you must include with your FINAL DRAFT.

For this paper, legitimate secondary sources are: –a critical biography (book-length) of the author & his/her writing. –an article about the novel from a PVCC database. –a book of criticism/collection of essays about the author/mentioning the novel. –anything else that is published/edited and that pertains to your paper.
