Claim your free subscription to the New York Times and/or the Wall Street Journal: https://library.qc.cuny.edu/blog/times-subscriptions/ Use the search box of either newspaper to find an article about the American workplace; choose an interesting idea/situation/problem in this article as the germ of an essay exploring how a workplace functions as a community. Express this in a one-sentence main idea. Your essay might discuss the extent to which workers identify with their workplace or resent it. How do management-labor relations affect a workplace’s mood/vibe? Consider the role of salary. How do workers feel about each other? How might this workplace reflect aspects of U.S. culture. For example, is it competitive in the way U.S. society often is, or does it encourage cooperation? These are only some ways to approach this. Augment your exploration with material drawn from an interview with a working person you know who is willing to share workplace experiences. Include ideas drawn from one of the articles read during Unit II (Farmer, Naipaul, Turkey, Ehrenreich, and Weil), personal experience, and the news item/cultural reference alluded to in Section 1. Develop your essay according to the following plan: 1) News item/Cultural reference: Start with a one-paragraph “hook” to draw the reader into the essay. Choose something related to your thesis: a news report, movie, book, video, song, or advertisement. Explain what it’s about. Be brief and dramatic. Do not use quotes. Do not mention your main idea. Do not mention the two articles. 2) Main Idea: Express the main in one sentence. Explain this idea briefly. Provide a brief example from your own experience to get the reader interested. Restate the main idea. Don’t mention the articles here. 3) Background: Give the reader some context. Summarize the article used briefly, including title and author. The title of an article is set in quotation marks, not italicized or underlined. Do not discuss the articles; save that for Section 4. Do not discuss your main idea here; save that for Section 4. 4) Discussion: Discuss your main idea. Begin this section by restating the essay’s main idea. Begin each paragraph in this section by referring to an idea. Don’t begin paragraphs by referring to the articles or the news item/cultural reference. Discuss the news item/cultural reference mentioned in Section 1. Support your main idea three ways: using material from one of the articles read during Unit 1, the news item/cultural reference, and your own experience. Use one paraphrase and one quote from one of the two articles using MLA in-text citation format. 5) Conclusion: Sum things up. Restate the main idea. Leave the reader with something to think about. Don’t add any new information or present a new idea.Title: Choose your own title; every draft must have one. Do not use bold face, underlining, or quotation marks. Include the essay number: Essay IId1: Your TitleWorks Cited: Start on the first line of a new page.
