For this “essay,” you will choose one scene/section (no longer than about one or two page/s) from one of David Sedaris’s essays and argue why that scene/section is vitally important to the overall essay. This argument—why you think this scene does such important work—is your thesis. (Remember, every scene is important, so you can choose any scene you like as long as you can fully support your argument.)

 

 

 

Then, once you have developed your thesis, you will support your argument by analyzing all the elements at work in the scene. Just as a 3D dioramas showcases and brings all the details of a scene to life, in this essay, you will dissect all the elements at work in your scene—everything from the characters to the point of view or the tone; basically, you will look at what is present in the scene and then discuss how this element is working in the scene AND thus helps to support why the scene is important to the overall essay (the link back to your thesis). Within this discussion, as always, make sure to focus on analysis rather than summary, but do still provide evidence for your analysis (quotes, brief summaries, etc.). You will need to examine at least four and no more than six elements.

 

 

 

While this essay has similar pieces in terms of thought as a traditional essay, its structure will be more like that of a lab report. Here, you will have bolded, titled paragraphs introducing each element in your scene along with introductory and conclusion paragraphs. Therefore, you must follow the following structure (each heading should be bolded and underlined and followed by a full paragraph as outlined below):

 

 

 

Introduction

 

Hook/ Introduce essay and author / Transition to thesis

 

Thesis—argue why scene/section is important to overall essay

 

 

 

Element One

 

Discuss and provide evidence about how this element is working in the scene

 

Link how this helps build/support the scene’s importance to the essay

 

 

 

Element Two etc.

 

 

 

Conclusion

 

Summarize main points and thesis

 

 

 

 

 

Elements you may see at work in your scene include:

 

 

 

Point of View          Timing                                Symbols

 

Characters                Setting                                Humor (sarcasm, irony, exaggeration)

 

Dialogue                   Action/plot move                Figurative Language

 

Voice/tone                Compare/contrast               Exposition/Commentary

 

 

 

*Anything else you see happening—see me if unsure
