Paper Assignment: Arguments about Animals


Graded, worth 15% of final grade
Length:  5 pages, inclusive of Works Cited.

Due Friday, September 22, emailed as a file by noon. BE SURE TO PUT YOUR LAST NAME IN THE FILE NAME.

Which argument about animals from any of the readings thus far or the movie Blackfish did you find most interesting and persuasive? Explain as specifically as possible what in the argument engaged you and why. Do not just summarize what was said or shown, select and argue for what made the argument compelling.


For your Works Cited format, use  MLA 8 style. This embeds references in the text in short form by putting the author and page in parentheses. If a work you draw on does not have a stated author, use a short version of the title and page instead.


For example, in you text it might read:  Aimees monkeys include “a surly gibbon” (Johnson 4).


And your Works Cited would include this entry keyed to it:


Johnson, Kij. “26 Monkeys, Also the Abyss.” Pdf file, pp. 1-10.


Or if you had the print collection it comes from:


Johnson, Kij. “26 Monkeys, Also the Abyss.” At the Mouth of the River of Bees: Stories. Small Beer Press, 2012, pp. 1-12.
