ENGL 1101 Online 
Fall 2021 
Essay #3 
Subject text selection due to text selection drop box by noon, Monday, November 15, 2021
Completed essay due by noon, Monday, November 22, 2021
The title and author of the subject text you will write on must be submitted to the drop box in Blackboard and 
the completed essay must be submitted to the Essay #3 drop box in Blackboard no later than the times and dates
listed above. One point will be deducted from your Essay #3 grade for every day that your text selection is not 
submitted after the deadline. The deadline penalty policy from the syllabus applies to all essays not submitted 
by the due date and time. Use the drop box; do not email or message your work.
Essay requirements:
• 2-3 pages (2 complete pages minimum, not including works cited page)
• Use traditional essay format (introductory paragraph that introduces subject text with thesis statement, body 
paragraphs, concluding paragraph, transitions – no section headings allowed)
• Use correct MLA format (including document format and citation format for both in-text citations and 
entries on the works cited page)
• Use correct Standard English grammar and mechanics
• Adhere to the assignment
• Use properly introduced and cited quotes and/or paraphrases from the selected subject text to support your 
thesis statement 
• Conduct no research and use no other sources than the subject text (it is inappropriate to look up any 
information that ends up in your essay other than textual evidence from the subject text; an automatic 30 
points deduction will be assessed for failing to meet this requirement)
• Do NOT wait until the last minute; manage your time and obligations carefully.
Essay options:
This assignment requires you to read a text and then make an argument about a point of meaning, interpretation, 
or understanding based upon your reading of the text. Review the textual analysis notes before starting work on 
this assignment.
Choose one article from the Texts for Essay 3 folder on Blackboard (select only from the choices in that folder). 
Submit the title and author of that text to the text selection drop box by the deadline. Once you have chosen the 
text, write a thesis-based essay that answers one or more of the following questions:
• What is the text’s point and why is that point important?
• How and why does the text use logos, ethos, and/or pathos to support its point?
• Who is the intended audience of the text, and what does the text want the audience to think or do (and 
why)?
Please note that all of the questions concern the text rather than the writer. Do not write a summary report on 
the text; your audience is an informed peer who is already familiar with the text. Do not write a biography of 
the writer; focus on answering the question or questions you have chosen. Do not write an essay on the topic of 
the subject text; focus on answering the question or questions you have chosen (Example: If you choose David 
Kirby’s essay “Inked Well,” do not write an essay about tattoos; write an essay that answers one or more of the 
topic questions about his essay). Do not write an essay discussing the contexts or surrounding events of the 
subject text (Example: If you choose Dr. King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” do not write an essay about the 
Civil Rights Movement; write an essay that answers one or more of the topic questions about his letter). Do not

write an essay arguing with the author or arguing his/her point for the author. Do not rewrite the subject text in
your own words as your essay. 
DO write an essay in which you answer one or more of the assigned questions about the subject text. The 
sample essay available is not perfect, but it will give you an idea of how to approach this assignment.
I strongly recommend reading several selections far in advance of the essay due date so you can have time to 
choose a text you will want to write about. Do not choose based on the title alone or wait until the last minute.
