I've made corrections Dr. Magee asked me to make. Couple of comma splices, run-ons, minor stuff. Mostly stylistic issues. Make no mistake - there were very few errors in this paper.
The big deal?
This paper will be used in the future as a model paper.
It was not meant to be a thoroughly supported essay. Instead, Dr. Magee wanted us to have a base essay upon which we could build. Basically all I should have to do to turn this into a thoroughly supported essay is to now add some outside source support.
I've already got that support lined up. I will have to change some things to make it fit. Sources for the subject of this essay are RAMPANT. If you really want to impress a professor in a Lit, History, or Poli-Sci class, I highly recommend you do what I did here - go against the grain.
There's some powerful counter-evidence to my thesis in this essay. As you will see in the paper that follows up to this one, I take that counter-evidence head on. In fact, that's the only reason the paper is not yet finished - I may be coming on too strongly against the opposing view.
I'll be talking to Dr. Magee tomorrow night to get his opinion. I have a feeling he's going to tell me to throw it all out there. I hope so because I take issue with some fairly established experts.
It'll be interesting to see how this plays out.
But right now? This paper not only scored an A, it will be used as a sample of an ideal paper in the future.
This is the second time since late January a professor has sought to use my work as an example to other students.
To have a professor want your work as an example only once is rare. Twice?? Better yet, the two professors are from two different divisions!
That's not only strong writing and research - that's flexibility!
