Happiness (Synthesis Paper)

Happiness (Synthesis Paper) Project description
Option B: Choose a book, poem, song, television series, narrative-based video game, or another
example of cultural media and synthesize that work with at least one class resource. Acceptable class
resources will be listed and updated under “Happiness Resources for Synthesis Paper #1” in
Blackboard. Your position should be clearly stated with specific evidence from the text/resource, and
you should support your position using detailed examples. When writing your paper, anticipate
opposing arguments so that you can address them from within your argument. Do not assume that the
reader is familiar with the outside work you choose to use. Grading Criteria
A The point the student makes is fresh, creative, and unique, rather than a routine, commonplace
response to the assignment. This main point is supported by strong, detailed examples drawn from the
texts/videos and personal experience or other knowledge outside of the course. Examples from both
the outside source and the class resource(s) are coherently integrated into the overall point the
student is making. Use of language and care with revising and proofreading are excellent.
The following resources count toward the source requirements for your first synthesis paper.
