In a formal reflection, pick any five texts (stories or poems) we’ve read over the course of the semester and develop an answer to the questions: Why do these texts matter to you?
Establish a thesis that unifies why the texts matter to you.
Provide commentary on each of the five texts that make up the anthology, using evidence and explanation to help readers understand your ideas.
Create an organizational strategy that emphasizes your ideas and guides a reader.
Write a title that comes from the ideas in your reflection.
You should include the full texts as attachments but do not include them in the same file as the reflection.
Use MLA format (Times New Roman, 12 pt. font, 1” margins) and parenthetical citations.
Write at least 1200 words but no more than 2000. A works cited page does not count toward your word count but should be included.
