English Check Your Understanding2

  1. Speaking a Public Language” by Richard Rodriguez (pp. 552-558)

Once you have picked an essay to read from the list above, please complete the following:

  1. Summarize the author’s essay and the author’s main argument.
  2. What support does the author provide to defend his/her argument?
  3. In your opinion, does the author present a strong argument?  Please explain why or why not.

 

As with any writing assignment, you must provide strong responses to each question.  One sentence does not constitute a strong response.  Also, you should supply examples from the essay to help support your responses.
