The following is intended to help you write dramatic exploration paper. 

**Remember the general rule; do not assume that I will know what you are speaking about, be clear with your examples and make sure to fully support your argument. **

For your dramatic exploration, you will choose one of the plays we have read in class and select a group of three quotes and write a paper.

Part One: Preparing your argument.
Choose one of the plays from our current section.

oOne: Medea, Twelfth Night 
oTwo: A Doll House, Trifles, All My sons
oThree: Ma Raineys Black Bottom, Notes from the Field, Mojada

Select a group of three quotes associated with your chosen play.
What connects these three quotes? Or what is a theme that connects all three of these quotes?
Write out an argument for why cach quote matters.

Part Two: Supporting your argument.
Find a minimum of one quote from an outside source that supports your thesis.
oLook for academic sources, journals, theatre sources.
oGoogle Scholar is a great place to start this search.
Avoid using any study guide or study support websites and blogs. They are not acceptable sources and should not be avoided completely.
