Your final exam is based on the following key terms, names, events, and ideas: Before you turn in your final, please delete these terms so it doesnt skew your similarity index. It would also help to delete the instructions in each section as well.

Write at least a paragraph (at least 5 sentences) for each that discusses the who/what/when/where information (identifying details important for this class). Then you should be able to argue why it/they is significance to American history. (The significance could be at least one of the following: the event/person created a change or led to something else happening; and /or the event/person is an example of a larger concept or phenomenon; and/or the event/person corrects a common misperception about American history).

The negative Affects Of Social Media

  • Write in the 3rd person
      • (he, she, it, the driver, the student, people, they),
    • avoiding ALL use of the first and second person pronouns
      • (I, you, me, we, etc.)
  • Approximately 7-10 pages (about 2000 words), plus a Works Cited page
  • Typed, Double-spaced, 1 inch margins, 12 point font
  • 8-9 cited sources (only 2 internet sources)
    • cited material should be evident, including the use of quotations, paraphrases, and summaries.
  • MLA formatted headers, citations, and works cited page.


Strategy: There is no right or wrong interpretation, but some interpretations are harder to support than others. To arrive at a solid, original claim you will need to identify literary devices such as storyline, character, theme, scene, and setting, as well as literary devices such as imagery, irony, satire, use of metaphor, or other stylistic patterns. You might consider diction, voice, syntax, tone, organizational format, etc.

Look at how such literary devices contribute to the essays overall effect, message, or purpose.

Focus: Your paper should explain how you see the literary elements doing what they do. In other words, you will make a case for what you think makes this essay good from a writerly perspective. Go beyond merely restating what you see in the text; flesh out your thoughts and speculations on how these elements work. Much of the paper will come from you, from your impressions of the text, how you see it put together, and what you think makes it strong. The more precise you can make your claim your interpretive statement the more importance you can give that claim, and the better your paper will work.

Dont forget to add a concise, yet thorough conclusion that points back to your original claim and wraps up the paper.
