Gatsby Paper Checklist

October 28, 2012

Here’s a list of what I’ll be looking for when I grade your paper.  Use this to help edit you work this weekend!

 

Thesis

Is it arguable?

Is it specific?

Does it set up a clear map for your essay?

 

Quotations

Did you “closely read” each quote?

Did you choose quotes from the entire novel (not just one part)?

Did you introduce/set the context for each quote?

Is there too much quote and not enough analysis?

 

General

Did you use scholarly language?

Were you concise?

Did you vary your sentence structure?

Did your thesis control your essay?

Does your argument follow a logical sequence?
