Please read the instructions provided on this assignment.

If you are in an on-campus class, you will take all of this information (Part I and Part II), submit it to VeriCite, print it, and submit it to me in class.

All students: Very Important Information

Part I: Core Artifact (50 points)
•Write a 250-350 word formally, researched essay comparing/contrasting the main characters of Pride and Prejudice and “Christabel.” Focus on their character traits, how they are or are not “epic” heroes, and/or how they fit into our expectations of a hero. Be sure to use your best grammar, spelling, and formal language.
•Your two primary sources are Pride and Prejduce and “Christabel”. You will need to cite them correctly in your essay with correct MLA in-text citations. You will also cite them on a correct MLA Works Cited page.
•Your one secondary source needs to come from ProQuest or LexisNexis(NC LibraryàDatabasesàProQuest). Look for articles that discuss the characters. You will incorporate this source into your essay either through quote or paraphrase. Remember to cite the secondary source in your essay with a correct MLA citation. (see owlpurdue.edu (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.) You will also cite this source on your Works Cited. So, you will be citing two primary sources and one secondary source both in your essay and on your Works Cited (3 sources total).
•Once you have completed that portion of Part I, you will answer the following questions briefly (25-50 words) (and attach to the end of this first essay). ◦How do the main characters in the works selected have something of importance to share with his/her society?
◦How might the lessons learned by these characters either help or harm their societies?
◦Put yourself in the place of a main character from each of the works addressed in the signature assignment essay. How would your personal choices, actions, and consequences be similar to those of the characters?
◦What advice would you give to both of these characters?

•Save this entire file (including Part II) and submit it via VeriCite.

Part II: SLO (five essay questions; 10 points each)

1. Answer the following essay questions in 150-200 words.

2. Do not forget to include in-text citations (Austen 150: ch. 4) every time you use a source.

3. Do not forget to include a Works Cited for EACH question (after the question).

4. If the question requires an outside source, you MUST use one. Otherwise, do NOT use outside sources. This, of course, includes any source like shmoop, cliffnotes, idiotsrus.com, your friends, or your classmates (this, of course, is called cheating and will result in a 0 on the assignment).

5. Each question is worth 10 points. 5 points is for the answer (detail, correctness of your answer, examples). 5 points is for your correct use of your source(s): in-text citations and Works Cited.

1. Compare/contrast two of our works as they fit into the historical period. For example, how do they represent the roles women played in the time period or how do they represent class roles? You must use one secondary source that discusses the historical period of your chosen works and the two primary sources. Be certain to cite both the secondary source and the two primary sources with correct MLA in-text citations and on your Works Cited (3 total).

Be certain to include both in-text citations for all three sources and a correct Works Cited.
