Poetry Analysis: Poetry is a more abstract literary form than the narrative stories we have read. With poetry, the meaning of the poem must be extracted by looking at the poetic devices that the writer uses. For this paper, you will conduct this extraction A Portable Anthology (yes, it can be one we did not read for class) and answer the following question: What is the theme of the poem? How do you know this? In explaining the theme and how it is established, it would be wise to some of the poetry literary terms form class (simile, metaphor, imagery, symbolism, personification, irony) to help you explain how the poet delivers his or her main message. Be sure to engage the text by giving close readings of passages of the poem.

Dream Deferred – Poem by Langston Hughes
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore–
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over–
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?

While working on the project, each team member have contributed his ideas, effort and scientific research on Steve Appleton monument. Each member of the team took part in searching and analysing of the subject, the informations that are available through research, and in creating the structure of the project and presentation. Each member of the team assisted in the development of the presentation. I was responsible for writing the content of the monument message for the presentation and writing the structure of my slides.
During the research, and after I have listened to other presentations in class, I have gleaned the following research strategies. One of the most widespread strategies is to gather as much information on the subject as possible and then filter it. The second strategy is to evaluate the aspects of the subject and look for information only on one or two aspects only. The third strategy is to combine informational and estimative approaches.
After that I want you to talk about the Horse riding research that you did and how did that benefit me as a writer in english 102.
Finally, Talk about English 102 experience and please use the guide for the cover letter. What I want you to use is simple words with using “I” more.
Your portfolio will begin with a cover letter of three to seven pages (double-spaced pages, no more, no less) in which you reflect upon your learning, research, and writing this semester and introduce your final works. Make sure you write a letter to me (e.g. Dear Jill, To Jill, etc.) and not an essay. Please conclude your letter with a closing salutation (e.g. Sincerely, etc.) Take time to write the letter carefully—it’s the first document that I’ll read and it’s part of your portfolio grade (50% of your course grade). Your cover letter counts as part of your twenty page portfolio requirement.
For your cover letter to be complete, you must cover these FIVE questions in your letter addressed to me. If you don’t, I might pester you! ☺ Your answers to all of questions below are part of your course grade.
Discuss our class theme of local places, people, histories, and/or the importance and rhetorical messages of monuments. Share what you have been considering during the class about Boise and/or the Treasure Valley. For this question, you may wish to discuss something new that you have been considering about place based what you have observed, researched, read, written, and/or discussed in our course. What insights are emerging for you about place? And/or what ideas have deepened for you about place since exploring the theme? You may relate how these ideas personally connect to you if you wish. Or perhaps you wish to explore historian Kirsten Crase’s questions, “What does it mean to be a person in a place? How do people shape places, and how are they shaped by them?” This first cover-letter question is an open question that allows you to explore what you have been considering about place this semester.
How does your portfolio reflect on your preferences as a research writer and a thinker? Discuss what you like to think about, what you like to research, what you like to write about, and how those preferences emerged in your portfolio.
What have been your accomplishments as a research writer this semester? To answer this question, think “process.” What did you accomplish in your research process this semester and in your research writing process? What did you accomplish in terms of brainstorming a topic, researching, collaborating and sharing your work with others, offering feedback, reading, revising, editing, etc.? Also think of the various types of research that you tried this semester. Optional question: What did you research that did not make it into your final essay draft? (You accomplished much research, and this is an opportunity to share your work and learning that was much larger than any one essay.)
Next, address each of the course questions that were thresholds or doorways to research writing in our course:
1. What is inquiry-based research and writing? How might my research and writing be driven by my questions? How can I craft effective research questions for projects that interest me? In what ways are inquiry, research, and writing iterative processes?
2. How might scholarship be a conversation? In what ways are “new insights and discoveries occurring over time … a result of competing perspectives and interpretations” among a “community of scholars and thinkers”?
3. What are rhetorical choices – and what are my rhetorical choices? What decisions do I make as a researcher and as a writer in relation to my subject, context, purpose, and audience? How might I come to those decisions and be aware of them? For example: Your purpose for a particular piece could have been to explore (quest for details) and then inform readers. Perhaps your purpose is to persuade readers. Perhaps your purpose was to reflect on course themes in the cover letter and to share information that may have been new to audience members who listened to your team presentation. How did you go about adjusting your composing to accomplish different purposes? How did you write and revise the piece to address that audience? One way to answer that part of the question is to describe the writing decisions you made as you imagined the people (the audience) who would read your piece.
What will you try to do in your writing in the future, both research writing and (if you wish) writing outside of academia? In addition to imagining ways you could accomplish future research projects, you could talk about other types writing you do or plan to do, e.g. business writing, music, poetry, fiction, and more.
Let’s say you answer each of the above mandatory questions, but you need to write more to complete the cover letter. Here are additional questions you might want to explore.
Additional, Optional Questions:
These are optional; you could pick one, all, or none to answer.
In what ways is your major research essay significant for you as a writer and why?
What kinds of risks did you take this semester, and what is the evidence of risk-taking in your portfolio? What writing or research risks did you take that may not be evident in your portfolio?
What do you want your portfolio to say about you? Does it succeed in saying it?
What’s something you wanted to improve? Trace your growth in that area throughout the semester and reflect on your learning.
What did you learn and why?
What can you tell me about your learning this semester that may not be evident in your portfolio?
Please make sure you revise and edit your letter carefully. Again, your cover letter is my first impression of your portfolio. It must be three to seven pages, double-spaced.
– For this cover letter, I want you to start as it said with “Dear Jill”, I want you to talk about Steve Appleton monument in Boise state university and say that I have worked with a group to work on this monument and did a presentation for it with my group. You can use for that
