Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements
Compare and contrast Maya Angelou’s “Caged Bird” and Ta-Nehisi Coates’ “The Paranoid Style of American Policing” in terms of the themes of domination and resistance, their world views, and their use of language. Alternately, you may write about Coates’ essay with regard to Audre Lorde’s “The Fourth of July.” Bring in quotes from the text (and provide line or page numbers) to support your statements. List your primary sources in a Works Cited list on a separate page. Use MLA style for the sources. No secondary sources are required. Write two to three full pages of text, not counting Works Cited. Organize your paper with an intro or thesis, a body with examples supporting your thesis, and a conclusion that adds to your thesis. You should discuss only two assigned works, and you should discuss them in continuous paragraphs, together, not one at a time.
