ENG 1510: Writing and Rhetoric I – Essay 3: Academic Analysis/Research Paper


Having written both a visual and a textual analysis, you will move to an expanded analysis of an academic text. We will look at how to interpret these scholarly texts, their significance, and rhetorical situation as an interpretive context. This prepares you to read and analyze the scholarly texts that you will use in the rest of college.

We then will apply these skills to analyze three perspectives (do not have to be opposing) on a topic of your choice, related to fairytales and the scholarship surrounding them. We will first present the three perspectives in an unbiased, academic fashion, and make the sources converse by locating and identifying the common ground within the three perspectives. We will conclude the essay by forwarding our own argument and thesis about the topic and effectively “join the conversation”.


In this essay, you will select an issue/subject in fairytale critical scholarship and analyze three perspectives surrounding it. For the first half of the essay, think of yourself as an investigative reporter who uncovers an issue (for example, the rising cost of tuition) and explain what is at stake (why does it matter?). Your job is to analyze different perspectives on your topic and how they interact with each other in an objective fashion. For your conclusion, you will forward your own conclusion about the subject, providing evidence for your claim in the form of research.

Think of this as a research argumentative paper that incorporates three different articles that you want to use to help support and form your new a bright idea of what this text could mean.


▪be at least 2,000 words formatted according to MLA documentation style

▪include cited paraphrases or quotations from your academic text

▪summarize the text in an objective and academic fashion and explain what is at stake

▪include paraphrases and quotations from your sources

▪include a works cited page AND annotated bibliography with at least 6 sources (2 of those sources should be the fairytale introduction from CFT, and the fairytale you are primarily working with)

▪describe and analyze three perspectives—using scholarly sources—and identify the pitch, complaint, and moment in each

▪have your sources “converse” with each other – present a central question regarding your topic that is being discussed and show the different ways your sources are responding to that question

▪root each position in a real person—do not generalize or present abstract positions (for example, “women,” “smokers,” or “students”); instead, discuss real people (for example, “Ms. Joan Collins,” “Tom Radford,” or “Michelle Arm”) who speak for their respective position

▪use the Method to identify binaries and patterns and to make the implicit explicit

▪uncover assumptions of the text and answer the question, “so what?”

▪conclude by offering and supporting with textual evidence your own interpretive context that explains the implications of and/or hidden meanings in the text. Your interpretive context should be interesting and not readily apparent to anyone who reads the text (meaning, your idea is not on “the surface” but offers a deeper insight into the text).

▪Conclude by making your own argument and reaching the point of your thesis


You must draw upon (and cite) your text at least three times to support your analysis. Your essay must include in-text citations and a Works Cited page.
