No If yes please specify: Assignment description and sample topics: The class will be working on an "Analyzing a Text" essay. I would like students to learn about EBSCOhost and other library resources in order to find secondary sources for quotations and support. For example, film reviews if they are analyzing a film or scholarly essays about Dexter or The Colbert Report if they are writing about a television show. The "text" in "analyzing a text" might be something from popular culture or a presidential speech--or even a poem. Also, it would be great to help students with framing their research question for finding secondary sources. Upload class assignment and other relevant documents: What are your learning outcomes for this session?
