Proctored Literary Analysis Outline Instructions

In your literary analysis essay, you will write a compare/contrast essay where you will explore both the similarities and differences between your analysis of Susan Glaspell’s “A Jury of Her Peers” and the main claim made by Simso in her essay.

Below you will find a skeleton of the way that your essay should be organized. You must use the thesis I approved in this essay. Include it on your outline. Your outline should include brief direct quotations (No longer than four typed lines) along with parenthetical citations that include the page number(s) where you found them. Your outline may not be longer than one page. Please upload your outline to Canvas as a PDF.

1. Introduction  

  • Begin your essay with a very brief quote from the short that you feel highlights your thesis (cite this direct quotation in MLA Style) OR a brief anecdote (a very brief story about yourself) that you feel relates to your thesis well. You must use a transition word or phrase to link this information with your thesis statement.  
  • You must use the thesis statement that I approved in your weekly writing. It should follow one of these two formats:1) According to Mary Bendel-Simso, Susan Glaspell’s “A Jury of Her Peers” suggests _______. I agree, but I would add that________.
    2) According to Mary Beldel-Simso, Susan Glaspell’s “A Jury of Her Peers” suggests ________. I disagree because________. 
  • If you need help with this part of the assignment, please let me know. 
  • Your thesis should be the last two sentences of your introductory paragraph. 

2. First Body Paragraph

  • Begin with a clear topic sentence that summarizes the main idea of the paragraph. This sentence should be debatable (1 sentence).
  • Give your first supporting reason for why you either agree or disagree with the main idea of Simso’s essay, and provide evidence for it from both “A Jury of Her Peers” and Simso’s Essay. These quotes should be cited in MLA Style. (Review the “‘A Jury of Her Peers’ Pre-Writing Assignment” to find examples from the text that you listed.) 
  • You will want to include at least one direct quotation from both the short story and the essay in this paragraph in order to support your reasoning. In your outline, these quotations may be short phrases. Don’t forget to include the page numbers of where you found them. Your parenthetical citation should include the page number in the parentheses. Here’s an example of how the parenthetical citation should look at the end of your sentence: (805). 
  • Remember that you must use lead-in phrases to introduce these direct quotations. Review this handout to find helpful templates. 

3. Remaining Body Paragraphs  

  • Begin each subsequent body paragraph with a clear topic sentence that summarizes the main idea of the paragraph. Remember that all of your topic sentence should be debatable (1 sentence).
  • Make sure that each body paragraph transitions smoothly between ideas. Click here to find a list of helpful transition words and phrases.

  • Continue this pattern as needed, discussing reasons and evidence for them one by one.

4. Conclusion

  • Begin your conclusion with a clear topic sentence.
  • Be sure to sum up your interpretation in light of your analysis. In other words, restate your thesis using different language. 
  • Your conclusion should come full circle. Remind your reader of the main ideas that you explained.

5. Works Cited
