For your Analysis paper, you are to select one of the following essays which you will analyze:
What’s to Blame-Super-sized Americans.docx
The Dark Side of Web Anonymity.docx
This paper will be set up in the same way as your Summary and Response paper, using the APA format. Your paper will need to include an introduction paragraph, a very short summary (one-half page) of the essay, your analysis, and a conclusion paragraph. You will want to use 3 headings: Summary, Analysis, Conclusion. Again, it needs to be 3 written pages plus a cover page and a reference page for a total of 5 pages. This entire paper needs to be in 3rd person voice – do not use “I” – “you” – “we” etc.
Your paper will have 4 different due dates:

Paper must be in APA format, including a cover page and References page (we will create your Reference page together in Lab). You will want to use at least one short quote with an in-text citation, as we have practiced and discussed in class.
