This assignment requires you to complete a few complementary analytical tasks while reading Wallace’s article "Tense Present" (described on the next page).
As you read the article, consider the following questions. You will enter your responses in a text box when you submit this assignment, but I recommend that you compose your answers in word processing software first and then copy-paste them over.
1. What specific terms/words used in the essay are unfamiliar to you? Note these words as you read and look up their definitions. Then provide at least three examples of these words along with their definitions.
2. What are the essay’s topic and issue? Remember that a topic is a general category and an issue is a specific question/problem.
3. What is the essay’s abstract argument? Identify the conclusion (main point) and reasons.
4. Identify the use of evidence in the essay. What piece of evidence did you find most effective and why?
5. Identify one example or idea from the reading to which you can relate. How does it connect to your own personal, profession, or academic life? Cite the passage from the source and follow up with an explanation of a specific example from your own life.
Please note that this assignment will not be graded like a writing assignment. Clear, simple responses in 1-2 sentences are preferable to entire paragraphs.
