Hello, Please this work is in 3 parts. You will be required to submit a working thesis and an outline before you attempt work 3. Please its important you really read and understand the assignment before you bid. The work should be free of grammatical errors. The work should be really organised. I have attached each works rubric to this post. I need a tutor who is really good in literature and has a great knowledge on Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart. Thank you.
This assignment, as noted, is worth 25 points. You will receive feedback from your instructor following its submission. Refer to the Module 3 Critical Thinking Rubric for additional information.
Based on your reading of the novel and on our discussion this week on character, craft a working thesis. Again, your thesis may address any character or element of the novel, but as we are focusing on characters this week, work to include specific characters in your thesis. You will revise this thesis throughout the term, so be bold now, and understand that you will revise more as we learn more about the novels and each other in the coming weeks. Please share the thesis statement first, noting any ideas or questions or thoughts you have about the future of the thesis statement. After the thesis, please share your reference page in complete APA format.
Pay particular attention to formatting:
Capital letter rules in APA are tricky, so be sure to focus on getting those in place.
A good way to remember the rules:
The first word in the title gets capital letters along with any proper nouns like America: And the first word after the colon gets a capital letter.
Here are some formatting guidelines:
- First line of each entry must be flush with left-hand margin.
- Indent second and subsequent lines of each entry one tab, or five spaces.
- Use CSU-Global APA formatting found in CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA for each citation.
- Please choose at least three references from the CSU Global Library for this assignment. These may be book chapters, articles or other resources. Be sure to use APA style for in-text citations and terminal references.
- Remember to alphabetize the entries, A-Z.
- Double-space within and between entries.
- Format using hanging indents; see the image below.
Portfolio Project Outline and Specified Cultural Analysis
This assignment, as noted, is worth 25 points. You will receive feedback from your instructor following its submission. Refer to the Module 5 Critical Thinking Rubric for additional information.
The Portfolio Project is a 5-7-page research paper (approximately 1,500-1,750 words) designed to require you to expand your understanding of Things Fall Apart by combining knowledge and application of content with your own interpretation and judgment. See the Assignment Page in Module 8 for full details on both options for the Portfolio Project requirements.
This week, in Module 5, the outline of the paper is due. Refer to the lecture material and the information below for more information on constructing this document. Be sure to incorporate your ideas from Weeks 2 and 4 when composing this outline.
- Submit a topic outline and a paragraph outline. You may want to use APA heading rules to help you set up and organize your outline.
- Demonstrate a clear thesis and organization for the paper. As you have revised the thesis several times at this point, feel free to share your various versions of the thesis, and feel free to ask any questions about the thesis in your thesis area of the submission.
- Include specific details to support the subpoints of the thesis and develop those subpoints in our paragraph plan of
- topic sentence
- cited evidence/examples
To develop a paragraph:
- paraphrase your topic sentence;
- paraphrase your cited evidence;
- paraphrase your analysis of the cited material.
Use this general outline to organize every paragraph. For more examples and details about topic and paragraph outlines, Google them. There are many great examples there.
Option #1: Research Based on Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart
The Portfolio Project is designed to require you to expand your understanding of Things Fall Apart by combining knowledge and application of content with your own interpretation and judgment. For the Portfolio Project, you will write a research paper about Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart, supplementing your own interpretation with information from three to five other sources. Your interpretation of this novel should reflect an international perspective.
Essay Formatting Requirements:
- 5-7 pages (not including title or reference page)
- Minimum of three sources (excluding the novel)—must be credible, authored sources; anonymous websites or sites like Wikipedia are not acceptable as one of your three main sources.
- Double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12-pt font.
- Title Page: for an explanation of how to formulate a title page in APA, see The Purdue OWL (scroll down to “Title Page”), or use the APA template provided in the CSU-Global Library.
- Insert page numbers in the top right hand corner.
- Include a reference page.
- Use CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA for correct APA formatting in the paper and on the reference page.
- Your final paper will be graded not only based on content but also on the quality of your writing, syntax, and grammar. Please be sure to pay special attention to the quality of your written work. It is highly recommended that you closely proofread your assignment prior to submission. In addition, you are again expected to provide support for your arguments based upon both the required and recommended readings for the course, your research, and any relevant points culled from the discussion boards. Review the Portfolio Rubric, located in the Module 8 folder.
- Finally, you will take the particular research question that you are developing as the thesis of your Portfolio Project and contextualize it in such a way as to convey an international or multicultural understanding of the novel. For example, if you are developing a cultural analysis of the novel, you will need to answer, as a part of your research thesis, how one culture develops in direct competition against the emergence of another foreign culture. Or, if you are developing a feminist analysis, you will need to answer, as a part of your research question, how one culture’s treatment of women changes when confronted by another culture’s differing attitude toward women. Or, if you are doing a direct compare/contrast analysis, you will need to directly compare specific aspects of one culture against another culture.
- In other words, any critical perspective from which you frame your thesis and overall paper needs to convey a sharper international or multicultural understanding of the novel and should be reflected in your outline and reference list.
