Prompt: Your goal is to argue whether or not Cohen’s theses are valid –that this argument is or is not an effective way of analyzing society.

Successful essays will do this by:

•Including an introduction that draws in the reader, briefly introduces Cohen and the topic of your essay, and has a clear thesis that states your argument and signals a plan for the essay.

•Creating a literature review that establishes and explains Cohen’s theories in a body paragraph. Summarize his main argument, claims, and evidence. Discuss his ideas as if you were explaining them to someone who was unfamiliar with the text .In your literature review, you only have to discuss the theses, you are going to use in your essay. (You do NOT have to address all seven of his theses, only the ones that apply to your monsters).

•Finding at least three different monsters of your own to prove or disprove Cohen’s theses. (You may also focus on three different interpretations of the same monster. Example: Zombies from Night of the Living Dead 1968, Zombieland 2009, and Warm Bodies 2013). You could use movie monsters, TV monsters, literary monsters, mythical or fairy tale monsters, and/or real, historical monsters. The choice is yours. This section of the paper will be where you include your outside sources to strengthen your analyse is.

Consider any of the movies or texts we have watch or read so far for yourmonsters.

â–ªExamples: Bellwether from Zootopia, Lady Macbeth or Macbeth from Macbeth, Kylo Ren or General Hux from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, etc.

•Including at least three outside sources to strengthen your argument. The three sources must be in addition to Cohen’s chapter – find a mix of peer reviewed and popular sources that support your analysis of the monsters and society. Don’t just rely on your interpretations and opinions–find others who agree with you!Your outside sources should be connected to your monsters in that they support your understanding of the monsters you have chosen.

•Synthesizing by combing information from different sources to inform and support a greater understanding of yourargument.

•Finishing with a conclusion that restates your thesis, reviews your body paragraphs, and a final though, prediction, piece of advice,something you learned or realized or the answer to a question you posed earlier.
