Textual Analysis of Julian Expires on
23 November: Turnitin.com and Canvas submissions
Resubmission on Canvas as of December 1 Introduction

You will be asked to analyze texts for assignments in many fields because it is so important to comprehend how texts convey their messages and produce their effects. In a political science class, you might be asked to examine a political candidate’s speech. In an art history class, you might be asked to analyze a painting. And in an urban planning class, you might be asked to interpret an architectural space. While literature classes require you to evaluate poetry and novels, film courses encourage you to analyze motion pictures. You have the option to CHOOSE a text to evaluate for this assignment.

o You must also take into account the “conversation”—other critics’ analyses of this work and different viewpoints. Be sure to introduce them to one another and engage in conversation.(Word selection, structuring techniques, and sentence variation.)

o Sentence Fluency & GUM: o You cannot obtain a score higher than a C- if your essay distracts the reader owing to sentence-level issues or faults (usage, syntax, transitions, punctuation, spelling, mechanics). You must show that you have a firm grasp of the fundamentals. Your grade will not be higher than a D if this problem is combined with an ambiguous and general response.
