Jill Leovy’s Ghettoside, addresses a breadth of issues related to race, crime, a

Jill Leovy’s Ghettoside, addresses a breadth of issues related to race, crime, and the criminal justice system. You will use this as the primary text for Essay 3. There are three prompts for you to choose from for this essay. Whichever prompt you decide to write, here are the goals and guidelines:
Prompt 1– Defend or Refute
For this essay prompt, you will either write an argument in favor of the argument presented in Ghettoside (defend the argument) or refute (argue against) the argument being made. Whether you choose to defend or refute the argument presented in the text, your own argument needs to be made with reasoning that is grounded in logic and supported by textual evidence. Do not become biased or emotional in your reasoning.
If you choose to defend the argument, you should focus on analyzing and explaining the strong points made in the argument/point made in the book. You should also incorporate outside sources that support both the argument and your defense of it.
If you choose to refute the argument, you will focus on fallacies and gaps in logic that are present within the argument. Your outside sources should provide evidence that counters the argument being made in the text.
Tips for responding to this prompt:
The thesis should clearly either make a claim that supports Leovy’s argument or make a claim that refutes Leovy’s argument.
Regardless of which stance you take, you should provide one full body paragraph that explains the premise of Leovy’s argument. Then, you will develop either your supporting argument or refutation of Leovy’s.
Prompt 2 – Cause and Effect
For this essay prompt, I want you to consider some of the issues that are addressed in Ghettoside. Pick one issue to focus on and then examine the causes and effects of the issue. To do this, you first want to establish the issue, taking time to explain what it is, who is involved, who is impacted by it, etc. Then, you will consider some of the root causes of the issues. This can include historical background and context that has created certain circumstances or conditions to occur. Once you examine that, you will want to explain the effects the issue has, both on a micro and macro level–individuals as well as communities and/or society at large.
Tips for responding to this prompt:
Focus on just one issue. While the book discusses many, to provide a focused, in depth discussion, only one issue should be addressed in the essay.
The thesis for this essay should make a clear claim about a specific issue discussed in the book as well as the cause and effects of that issue.
Take time to establish and explain the issue
It would be helpful to provide some historical context and background information about the issue, how it came to be, what factors contributed to it, etc.
Use textual evidence from the book to relate to your discussion. The outside sources that you use can help to support the overall discussion, but can also relate to the historical context/background you provide.
Prompt 3 – Provide a Solution
For this essay prompt, propose a solution to the issues discussed in Ghettoside. Using your research and information presented in the primary text, propose a solution that may work to resolve these issues. You do not necessarily need to come up with a brand new solution. Rather, you can use a solution that is already implemented or that has been proposed, but you will need to explain why that solution is the right course of action to take. When you explore this option, you can look for solutions that have been proposed by cities, nations, organizations, or specific police departments, for example. You may also examine any solution that is proposed within Ghettoside, if you identify one. Consider if that is a viable solution. If it is, you can use that as a starting point, but you will need to explain why it is the appropriate solution using evidence from the text as well as your secondary sources.
Tips for responding to this prompt:
Your thesis should make a specific claim about the solution you propose.
This means that the background and context you provide in the introduction paragraph needs to establish the issue discussed in Ghettoside.
Provide a full body paragraph in which you identify the issue as it is defined and discussed within the text.
Then, provide a solution to the issue throughout your essay.
Research what is being done to address the issue at this point in time will help you in determining the solution you want to propose.
Goals:
Create a strongly worded thesis statement that guides the essay and responds directly to the essay prompt
Provide critical analysis of the primary text you are writing about
Provide textual evidence and specific examples from the primary text (Ghettoside)
Include 2-3 secondary sources that you find on your own for support (must be credible sources)
Provide strong reasoning to support the main claim of the essay

Roots is basically backstories of almost all the major characters, who will then grow, change, mature, and reap what is sown by the end of the novel. So, for the Roots section, the reading assignment is:
Choose one character presented in Roots. Post a character sketch of that character. Include at least 3 direct quotes from the novel in support of your post. Then explain why you chose that particular character.
What you are doing now is establishing a relationship with one of the characters, investing in that character, and investing in how the story progresses and ends up. In this way, you will ground yourself in your reading of the novel as a whole across the other three sections.
500 words including quotes + a follow-up response to another student’s post.

I have attached a pdf of Highsmith’s themes & style which will be very helpful to build the context of the the essay after picking a option from below.
Length: 7-8 pages format:MLA Sources: 5 or more academic sources
You must have a Works Cited page. This does not count as part of your minimum 7 pages.
PROMPT: For this essay, I would like you to focus on one of the options below:
Consider Guy and Bruno as characters, both singly and as a pair. How are they developed/presented over the course of the story, particularly through the third person point of view narrative that is both limited and omniscient at times. How do we, the readers, come to understand each character and experience their descent into mental and or moral instability. Their internal thought process is often on display for the reader; how does this affect our understanding of them and their experiences? You may additionally focus on the other characters as they reveal things about Guy and Bruno to the reader.
Strangers on a Train is a character study but it is also a thriller/suspense novel. How does this style of narrative impact the themes and or character development of the book?
Focus in specifically on the theme of gender, gender roles, and sexuality and the presentation of that theme in this book. Consider the context/time frame of the novel and the viewpoint of the author.
Or, as customary, what themes/comments about society do these stories reveal? How do you know? If you go this route, I’d recommend skipping mental health as a theme, as that is a significant theme and would likely require its own six-seven page essay. Themes you might explore include: duality, morality, obsession, fear, guilt, goodness, love/hate.
For either choice, definitely incorporate commentary on Highsmith’s writing style. As always, imagery and images, writing style and illustration style, tone of both the author and the passage, Highsmith’s choices in grammar, syntax & diction, character development, narrative perspective, are important.
You need to incorporate several items of research into your essay. This can include pieces of literary analysis, critical reviews, and interviews with the author. Use the research to support your own conclusions and to elaborate on the literary elements at work in the text. The work itself needs to be on your Works Cited page, but it does not count as research.
Avoid plot summary. You are writing for a reader who has already read these works. For an analysis, What happens in the text is often less important than Why it happens and How it happens. Try to avoid expressions like “In my opinion/experience” and “For me” or “Personally”– not because you experience isn’t valid, but because this work needs to be about the text. Include an introduction and a conclusion, but don’t go off on “Big Life Lesson” kicks; make it relevant to the text. The Conclusion should not just be a reiteration of the introduction. All essays for my class should be typed, double-spaced, 12-point Times New Roman font, and follow propr MLA format.
