INTRODUCTION

 

____Does the introduction include a thesis about the primary source (“Sonny’s Blues” or Hunger of Memory)?  Note that it is normal for there not to be a clear thesis at this point.  Just be frank with your partner.

 

____Does the introduction have a plot summary of the primary text, or a biography of the writer?  (Not good if yes.  Let your partner know to take all that out.)

BODY PARAGRAPHS
