Summarize your points and offer concrete conclusions

Contextual Analysis
The purpose of this assignment is to write a “contextual analysis.” This is an analysis of an example of Chinese Opera or style of Indian theatre. You will choose one example of a form of Chinese Opera (Peking, Cantonese, Revolutionary, or other form), or one style of Indian theatre (Kuttiyattam, Folk Theatre, etc) to focus on. These do NOT have to be styles we have already studied. Use other texts/sources to illuminate and offer context related to this form of theatre. In this particular assignment you are required to bring at least three other sources into this analysis in addition to your text book. They may include:
Print: book, magazines, periodicals, peer reviewed journals, etc
Video: documentaries
Online Sources: websites, blogs, podcasts, archived material, etc.
Encyclopedic Sources: Encyclopedia Brittanica, Dictionary. com, these sources may only comprise ONE of your three sources.
Wikipedia is not an appropriate source for an academic paper. It’s a starting point. You can use the bibliography listed in the articles as a good source for legitimate, peer reviewed, research.
The primary context of these theatrical styles are the socio-political circumstances at the time of the this form of theatre’s inception. As the style you have chosen rose in popularity, what aspects of this society was most reflected in the work? Sources which will provide cultural and historic context for this analysis may include pieces focusing on:
the history of India/China
examples of similar forms of Indian/Chinese culture (dance and drama)
the history of the origin of the form
key developmental changes in the form
the current state (or place) this form has in popular Indian/Chinese culture
This topic is broad enough that you could easily write a series of articles on the subject. You must develop your thesis and in doing so narrow your field of inquiry.
Clearly state your thesis in terms that can be easily defined and supported by example and research
Offer historical context directly linked to the development of this form of theatre
Cite your sources in the body of your paper or footnote it
Summarize your points and offer concrete conclusions
Style: the paper will include varied and forceful sentences, purposeful and apt diction, and a tone that expresses the writer’s engagement with the subject and the value of analysis.
Form: the paper will be formatted according the MLA manuscript guidelines, demonstrating strong control of the conventions of academic discourse in the areas of paragraph structure, punctuation, mechanics, and documentation; the control should be strong enough to allow the writer to push the boundaries of contextual analysis in imaginative and effective ways.

Quoting specific examples, demonstrate how the same topic was presented differently across these different news media outlets.

Choose a recent story and compare/contrast how it was covered across three different news media outlets. If you’re dealing with a big topic (say, the elections or the war in Ukraine), choose one specific incident/event to focus your analysis.

Choose one source from Group A: CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, NPR, The Guardian
Choose one source from Group B: Fox News, Breitbart, Daily Caller, National Review, The Economist
Choose one source from Group C: Common Dreams, Democracy Now!, The Intercept, Pro Publica, Slate
The important goal of this assignment is to find interesting differences between each outlet’s coverage of the same story, so don’t pick examples that are all basically saying the same thing.
Quoting specific examples, demonstrate how the same topic was presented differently across these different news media outlets. Are they quoting from different sources or relying on different information? Did you find one more persuasive or effective than the others? If so, explain why.
Three pages, double-spaced. Use proper MLA format You must cite your sources, quoting them in the body of the paper and including a Works Cited page at the end.

Tim Posada, “The Scraps of DC: Media Economics, Film Ownership, and the Arrowverse” (Links to an external site.)
Peer Response: Before or after you post, comment on two classmates’ posts. Find a post that employs different citations than yours and respond, considering how those posts come to similar or different conclusions.
Discussion Posts Rubric
To receive a passing grade on these posts, you must meet minimum expectations:
Meet the word count for each post topic.
Meet the citation count for each topic
Write about each article listed.
If you do not meet the word count, your grade will be deducted accordingly. If a post is 400 words, and you only write 200, you will receive a 50% on this discussion. If you only write about one article, you will receive 50% on the post (save for one post involves three readings, meaning missing one would result in a one-third grade deduction). Lastly, make sure you meet the word count per topic, not just the word count for the whole post. For example, if you respond to a 400-word post that requires 200 words on each topic and you write 300 words on one subject and only 100 on the other, you will receive a 25% grade deduction.
