In a 6-7 page pager, you’ll be asked to summarize the text you have chosen, but more generally, specify and analyze the techniques it uses to argue and persuade you. (Even if you don’t find them effective.) You can choose to focus on one text or do a comparative analysis. The focus of this paper should be your analysis and illumination of specific techniques or aspects of the text you’ve chosen, but I also expect you to organize your analysis around a single and considerable thesis. This is a thesis-driven assignment.
Text Chosen: Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow
