□ Your essay should be a minimum of 4 full double-spaced pages with 1” side margins, 1” header and footer margins, Times New Roman, 12 pt font.
□ Early on in your draft, you should form a working thesis to give your readers a main claim or guiding idea which will be developed throughout. By the end of the essay, this thesis should be developed into a complex claim about how texts provide a lens that filters, represents, or asserts power, and thus affects our understanding of L.A.
□ Your essay must bring in Sawhney’s essay, “Journey Beyond the Stars,” accurately summarizing in a way that is understandable to a reader who is not familiar with the text but making sure that the summary does not take over the essay. To go with that summary, offer a good mix of paraphrases and direct quotes (with MLA style citations) to help readers see exactly what Sawhney says in his essay.
□ To add to the conversation started by Sawhney, your essay should attempt to engage in analysis of your chosen example to unpack how L.A. is portrayed in a mainstream or commercial way in that text. Adding to that discussion, bring in one of our recent class readings (Woo, Ulin, or Pulido) to discuss how that text moves beyond typical, commercial, mainstream portrayals of the city.
□ Give careful consideration to your final thesis (or your answer to “so what?”) as you move to a conclusion. Make sure that it is clear what has been gained by your discussion and what insights you want to leave with readers. Remember that specifics are much more rewarding than general platitudes or preachy/teachy conclusions. Detail exactly what you’ve noticed about the portrayals of L.A. in your example texts and why that’s worth noticing as you reconsider (or push beyond) Sawhney’s points.
□ Cite all sources in MLA format (in text), in addition to a Works Cited page. Use Purdue OWL (linked on Canvas) to look up proper MLA in-text citations and Works Cited formatting.
□ Proofread for mistakes and edit for clarity. Consider paragraph organization and appropriate transitions to lead your reader through your discussion.
