Students in ENG 101: Freshman Composition 1 have homework assigned in class on 28 January 2013 and due in typed hard copy at the beginning of class on 4 February 2013.
The assignment is to read the article, either as given in class or cited below, and to discuss its features. What does it look like? How does it sound? What claims does it make, and how does it make them? How, in brief, does it function as an academic essay?
If you missed class, get a copy of the article; it is available online through the TCI library, and hard copies are likely available.
Peyser, Thomas. "The Attack on Christianity in Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave." Explicator 69.2 (2011): 86-89.
Keep the article handy, as we will likely be looking at it in class again in the coming weeks.
