Writing instruction Please put a title of your paper that reflects your thesis. Your thesis should be clear and specific, and it should be put in the introduction. *Note: Please do not list three female characters as your thesis. Your thesis should be your analytical points based on your analysis of the novel, and you should use characters as textual examples to prove your points in body paragraphs. Make sure that each paragraph begins with a topic/summary sentence that refers to one of the main points of your thesis. In other words, you should not begin the paragraph with “When. . . .” Your paper should not be a plot summary. Avoid using "I think," “You” or "we see" in analysis papers. Use a signal phrase when you introduce a quotation (i.e. Esi says, “. . . ” (89) and put the page number of the quote in parentheses. Please do not put p. or pg within the parentheses. Please cite at least two textual examples (textual evidence to prove and support your analytical points) in each body paragraph to support your thesis and add your detailed analysis after quotations. Do not quote that is about the plot. Choose quotations that prove your point, and you should provide your analysis after each quotation. Please limit quotations to a maximum of 3 lines and use an ellipsis (. . . ) for any omitted parts. Please pick the most important and relevant passages for quotations. Works Cited Aidoo, Ama Ata.
