Then I want you to accomplish the following:
I. Compose a thesis (http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/545/1/)
II. Write a 2-3 sentence introduction.
III. Identify the elements of satire within the article (irony, sarcasm, paradox, etc.). Then choose one of these elements to focus on. Hone in on 2-3 pieces of evidence (words, phrases or sentences) within the text that utilizes your chosen element. Quote the evidence and explain how the author uses satire to make her point. This will be one paragraph.
IV. Write a 1-2 sentence conclusion that does not merely repeat your introduction.
This, in effect, should be a miniature timed writing/analytic essay. It will have a brief introduction with a thesis, one analytic body paragraph, and a brief conclusion (there is no minimum word count...focus on your content here). Easy peesy!
