Truong Ba’s Soul in the Butcher’s Skin — USING EVIDENCE

Objective: Use evidence to support a particular idea.


The paper is exploratory in nature – but each student will write using the same thesis:

THESIS: The play Truong Ba’s Soul in the Butcher’s Skin reflects both modernity and tradition in Vietnam.

You will prove this point by using details from the play as evidence. You can draw from the play’s dramatic devices, context, and other elements (Aristotle’s six elements). The primary purpose is to practice using evidence to support an idea – and to use specific and rich descriptions of those moments of the play.

Assignment Basics:

4-5 pages in length. (1,300-1,700 words) 1 inch margins. Double-spaced. Times Roman or similar font. 12 pt.
Use one line ONLY for name and date at top – ex. Jennifer Goodlander, 1-12-14
Underline your thesis.
Submit as a Word doc via Canvas — Save using the name: docx
You will need to correctly cite any quotes from the play and the play’s introduction.
Outside research is optional – but must be correctly cited.

In this paper use the play as evidence to defend the thesis or main idea. Ask yourself – Does the structure/content of the paper clearly relate back to that thesis? Do you use specific details from the play to support your ideas? Are my introduction and conclusion compelling and interesting? I am most interested in your own ideas!!! You might find outside research interesting and/or helpful… but do not just restate the ideas of others about the play. Work to write a well-structured narrative, not just a string of events, with a beginning, middle, and end. .


The entire paper is worth 100 pts. The paper will be graded according to the following categories:

Evidence – 60 pts

Does the paper use specific details from the play?
Does the paper draw from more than one kind of evidence? (character, plot, context, dialogue, design choices, other) Focus on three different elements.
Does the author explain or quote the details fully — and make clear connections to the thesis.
Does the paper give specific and dynamic information? (Fully explain)
Is the relationship between the evidence and the thesis clear? (explain the significance)
Paragraphs and Sentences – 20 pts

Are paragraphs the appropriate length? (about ½ a page for each)
Are sentences clear? Not too long or short?
Is each paragraph focused on ONE thing?
Mechanics – 20 pts

Does your paper follow the assignment basics? (Format, length, heading, citations, and so on)
Does your paper have a title?
Does the paper have few mistakes in grammar and spelling?
Are sources properly cited (if used)? Is there a bibliography?
