OBJECTIVE: You will write a three-page research paper that utilizes outside research from the WLAC online database. Your research paper will demonstrate your ability to write a clear thesis, support this thesis with research from 2-3 academic articles, and your ability to proficiently utilize MLA style. PROMPT: Pick an author and story / essay from the text (it does not have to be one that we read). You may also pick any story, essay, or even a novel that you have read that is about Los Angles. How does the author you choose use language (words, phrases, figurative language, etc…) to define Los Angeles in a unique and specific way? Make sure to discuss what the author does well, as well as, what the author’s blindspots are?
