“superhero or supervillain? if science gives people superpowers, will

Analysis Essay #1

For this assignment, you are required to submit an essay that grapples with the rhetorical appeals in several selected works introduced by the instructor.

Feel free to either take an affirmative or negative stance on the topic of whether or not the author was effective or ineffective in their rhetorical appeals. Please make sure you are writing in the MLA format that we have been reviewing since the beginning sessions of coursework. Additionally, you should consult Blackboard and the text book to assist you in your analysis.

Here are your options, all from our textbook, of written expression to explore and analyze:

  • “Why Walking Helps Us Think” by Ferris Jabr
  • “Writing about What Haunts Us” by Peter Omer
  • “Superhero or Supervillain? If Science Gives People Superpowers, Will They Use Them for Good or Evil” by Will Oremus
  • “Black Men and Public Spaces” by Brent Staples

Additionally, if you are compelled to write your analysis paper on another reading selection from our textbook, please let me know, and I may be able to approve your request.

Again, this is not a summary assignment but, rather, an analytical essay that illustrates your understanding of effective writing practices. My expectation is that this essay’s length is at least five pages and includes a works cited page at the conclusion of the essay. The format of your paper should look identical to the MLA Sample Paper that is on the OWL Purdue website.

Support your thesis statement points with quotations and paraphrases but write the majority of your paper in your own words with your own ideas. (See the current edition of the Rules for Writers Handbook.)

I omitted the rubric for this assignment in the syllabus; however, this is the rubric that I will use to evaluate your first essay:
