Final Essay Exam Directions
For the final essay, you will be asked to read three questions carefully and then choose only ONE question to answer. You will then write a thesis-centered essay of at least 500 words in response to this one question using direct quotations from “A Lifetime of Reading Taught Min Jin Lee How to Write About Her Immigrant World” by Min Jin Lee and “How Language Shapes the Way We Think” by Lera Boroditsky to support your writing.
Remember to:
Develop a thesis that takes a clear stance or position.
Organize your thoughts — an outline can help do this.
Use MLA in-text citation to support your claim with quotes or paraphrases from BOTH the Lee and the Boroditsky readings. (You must use at least one cited idea from each reading).
Use the notes you have written directly on the exam readings to assist you in writing your essay.
While you can also use your own observations and experiences to develop your claims,
the Boroditsky and the Lee readings must be the primary source for development.
Discuss how the citations and ideas are relevant to your thesis.
