_____ My thesis is not a plot summary.
______ My thesis makes a statement that critically analyses/explicates text.
______ My thesis is not a thesis that this document or my professor in class has banned.
(e.g. true love, the American dream, the New Woman, see others above.)
______ My thesis not only identifies that a symbol or motif is present but also its
function and why its presence is important.

statement “in this paper I will . . . My thesis is stated outright as a declaration.
_____ None of my topic sentences plot summarize. They explicate something that is not
obvious to the general reader.
_____ My topic sentences do not repeat my thesis. Each explicates by going deeper into
my argument to develop and support a position I hold about the text. The topic

____ MLA parenthetical documentation and citation should be used
throughout to cite source. E.g. (Baker 250). Note that there is no comma
between author and page number.

does not appear in the parenthetical citation, only the page number.

______ Consecutive citation without interruption by another source does not require
repeating the author’s names in the parenthesis. Write only the page
number in the parenthesis.
______ Place the period after parenthetical documentation:
Example: Jones states, “Phillis Wheatley wrote Neo-Classical poetry” (23).
Example: Jones states that “Phillis Wheatley wrote Neo-Classical poetry” (23).

The exception is direct dialogue spoken by a character.
_____ There is a full, summarizing sentence that comes before my block quote.

characters or who they are) when first introduced or alluded to in text. I
accomplished their introduction with a noun phrase—an appositive.
See Harbrace Handbook.
_____ Dates of publication, birth and death, etc. must appear after first reference of

full name of writer, and period/era the work was published.

Richard Dyer . . . ; Psychoanalysis founder Sigmund Freud . . . : New York
Times classical music and dance critic Michael Cooper . . .)
____ There are no contractions in my paper.
____ There are no comma splices (two independent clauses or sentences joined by a
comma) in my paper.
____ I have used transitions of order (First and foremost, second, etc.) or importance to
lead reader through my paper and to direct the reader to the increasing importance
of my points or argument.
____ I have checked the spelling of the names of authors, critics, and characters.
____ I have checked subject, verb, and antecedent agreement. I do not use the plural
“they” and “their” when I mean “he” and “his” or “she” and “her.” See Harbrace.
_____ Second paragraph defines terms, sets up argument, gives background
information, gives essential history before thesis defense starts in following

in the plot by saying exactly where action or moment takes place.
