Academic Writing An analysis of the article
For this assignment, write an analysis of the following article:
Samantha McCabe’s “Workplace Harassment Goes Virtual”
Your essay should be double spaced, in Times New Roman 12-point font and 2.5 – 3 pages (or 625 – 750 words). Consider what the author is arguing and how they are making their claim. In performing your analysis, look for patterns in the text, such as repetitions, strands, binaries, interesting, important, revealing and strange observations (complete your Observational Lists). Use your observations to make a claim and formulate a thesis statement about the text’s meaning and also to support that claim. Be sure to ask yourself “so what?” about the observations you have highlighted. What does the text mean and how does the author support their claim(s)?
Warning:Avoid summarizing the plot, simply offering a list of observation or ideas from the text. You need to make claims and arguments about how the text produces meaning. Link the details/evidence you notice in the text to claims you are making about what the text is arguing and how it is arguing.
Keep in mind: Do not argue with the author or focus your paper on the topic in the article. The article itself is the subject of your analysis.
This assignment is NOT a research assignment. There is no need to use secondary sources.
You will be graded on the development and the plausibility of your analysis and interpretation of the text, the structure of your argument and your writing (spelling, grammar and style).
