What is the loss of innocence, according to Gregory’s “Shame”?

DR JAMIL’S EGL 1010 DIRECTIONS FOR THE FIRST ESSAY (DEFINITION ARGUMENT)

You will turn in ONLY an OUTLINE instead of the actual essay

The argument of your first essay (thesis statement) is a definition claim, and it must be a clear and specific answer to any one of the following prompt questions.

DEFINITION PROMPTS:

  1. What is the loss of innocence, according to Hughes’s “Salvation”? (That is, what is the definition of loss of innocence in “Salvation”?)
  2. What is the loss of innocence, according to Gregory’s “Shame”?
  3. What is adulthood in the average human, according to Hughes’s “Salvation”?
  4. What is adulthood in the exceptional human, as Langston Hughes suggests in “Salvation”
  5. What is poverty, as Andersen suggests in “The Little Match Girl”?
  6. What does the cold weather represent in Andersen’s “The Little Match Girl”?
  7. What does the fire represent in Andersen’s “The Little Match Girl”?
  8. What does the ghost represent in Kleist’s “The Beggarwoman of Locarno”?

Choose one question from above for your definition argument. Read all the questions before you make your choice. A clear and precise answer to the question of your choice is the way to come up with your thesis statement. The number of your topic sentences depends on the number of your sub points.

Turn in only an outline instead of the actual essay. Begin the outline with your title. For the introduction mention your topic as the motivator, and then mention your thesis statement in a clear, complete sentence. (This is your main point.) Then for the body of the essay mention your topic sentences. (These are your sub points, and you must mention them in clear, complete sentences.) After each topic sentence you may mention specific support (a phrase or two by way of examples, and mention the page number or the paragraph number you would have quoted from). Then for the conclusionmention your reworded thesis statement with a clincher. You must label each part of your outline using the format I have provided below.

Highlight the question of your choice and attach the page to your outline. Follow the format of outline given on the next page, and note that the number of topic sentences depends on the number of sub points.
