Some Rules for Writing on Literary Topics... referring to the author - first reference use the author's full name. Subsequent references use the author's last name only, or call them the writer, the author, et cetera. Mark Twain would become Twain. referring to the title - in your thesis use a complete reference to the title of the work. Subsequent references, use the title if it is short. If it is long, make it shorter by picking out the key words. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn would become Huckleberry Finn.





On the citations, for a short essay on one literary work you don't have to use the author's last name inside the citations. One last thing. When you write a thesis on a literary work, it is a good idea to add the following to the thesis: 1. 1. the author's name 2. 2. the title of the work 3. 3. the genre (story, poem, play novel) This will have the effect of making the thesis a little longer than you may be accustomed to. For right now, don't worry. Just try to get it all in there. We may talk about splitting the thesis into two sentences later on. The samples on "A&P" followed this pattern.

...The results of the study scaled the dogs on five dimensions of behavior temperament: playfulness, curiosity/fearfulness, chase-proneness, sociability, and aggressiveness (De Palma et al., 2005). Dogs living in rescue shelters were assessed as demonstrating a low degree of playfulness, showing distraction by the environment when being enticed to play. The sheltered dogs also scored low on curiosity but, high on fearful behavior. The cortisol levels for the sheltered dogs were significantly higher than the cortisol levels of canines living in households, indicative of stress and anxiety associated with shelter lifestyle. Shelter dogs showed a low proportion of chase-proneness supported by demonstrations of low physical activity and excitability. Shelter dogs were assessed as exhibiting low levels of sociability toward conspecies but, a high sociability when concerning humans (De Palma et al., 2005). This trend was also demonstrated when observing levels of aggressiveness; the dogs seemed more antagonistic toward conspecies than humans. It should be noted that shelter dogs displayed rare bouts of hostile behavior and results were supported by little data. It is interesting to find a set of shared characteristics existing in canines living in rescue shelters. Such findings lead one to speculate if the shelter environment may be partly responsible for inducing behavior characteristics? After all, dogs living in shelters are subjected to a variety of stressors including......

...Introduction: It is not unfamiliar to see lots of news that the dogs are treated in inhumane ways. In April this year, two junior high school students in Chunghwa post a video on the internet that they shoot at a chained dog on the street with BB guns, imitating an online surviving game for fun(謝忠義). After hundreds of netizens denounce their behavior, they modify their previous remark and say that they just want to protect themselves from dog’s attack. Besides, according to some shocked news(流浪狗悲歌), animal shelters in Taiwan house about 100,000 stray dogs and more than 60,000 of them are euthanized within a year. Some shelters even drag them brutally and pitiless, euthanize them without using the narcotic, and let them die in strong pain. In recent years, the controversial argument about human’s animal-consciousness is increasing. Seeing so many cases that expose the inhuman way imposed on dogs, some people start to think about the way they treat the dogs and manage to find more appropriate ways to solve these problems. For example, in Taiwan, the government has enacted the law, imposing heavy fines on the ones who abuse dogs in cruel way. Even in Germany, the government legislates for animal welfare in order to reduce the account of stray dogs(蔡喬丹). If violators dump dogs, they have to pay NT 900,000 or may be sentenced 2 years in jail. Recently, people constantly debate on animal protection. Some people think that it’s necessary to get rid of the animals which cost lots of...

...Henry Aaron Lightenburger October 22, 12 Semantics-E265 Take-home Quiz Hate speech is one of the most powerful and hurtful speech there is today. Its power grows from the pure frustration and hatred towards another group. Hate speech perpetuates hate and violence and should never be allowed anywhere. Richard Delgado in Hate Cannot Be Tolerated states, “With anonymous hate speech such as a flier or graffiti, the victim cannot talk back, for the hate speaker delivers his message in a cowardly fashion.” I agree with Richards whole article but I particularly liked this segment. Hate crimes are cowardly and stereotypical. They usual consist of targeting a group and a helpless individual is dragged into that group and abused. If someone has a problem with me and confronts me I will openly listen but if the constantly fuck with my life using graffiti and fliers, that’s strait disrespect and I don’t put up with it. I don’t believe any one should have to. Now some people are not as hands on as me and we cant expect people to stick up for them selves so we must act to defend them. In the essay The Betrayal of Liberty on America’s Campus, by Alan Kors, I felt pushed back. I didn’t like the tone he used in his essay or the purpose. He gave some far-fetched examples if weird speech codes schools tried to bring the hate speech down and pushed that they were talking away our rights. I am always allowed to voice my opinion and even if I wasn’t allowed I still would but I’m glad......

Hunting Dogs

...Hunting Dogs Charging into the cattails, my golden Labrador retriever flushes a huge male pheasant. My dad pulls the trigger, the pheasant is hit, but it is still flying. I tuck my shotgun in, and BOOM! The rooster is falling to the ground. My two dogs a English setter and a Labrador Retriever, takes off towards the spot where they saw the big bird go down. After a couple of minutes of sweeping the area, looking for the pheasant, we couldn't find it, so we moved on. Later that day, as my dad and I were walking in the field, our English setter froze up on point. Both my dad and I walk up to break the point when three Hungarian partridges break I pull up and get one and so does my dad. The night is a fun one, because we eat the two birds and my dad tells stories about his hunting trips. Read on for even more of those stories. The Labrador retriever is one of the most family friendly dogs, I think. According to the American Kennel Club the Labrador retriever is owned by over a million people. "The best for any kind of shooting... generally black and no bigger than a pointer, very fine in legs, with short, smooth hair... extremely quick running, swimming, and fighting... and their sense of smell is hardly to be credited," noted British sportsman Colonel Hawker, referring to the Labrador retriever. The Labrador was originally bred in Canada in the 1800's and used for hunting waterfowl for the most part. With their big mouths, they can retrieve the biggest types...

The Dog

...The Dog, The Family: A household Tale Summary In August Kleinzahler’s description of his childhood years, which seems to center around his dog, a pure bred boxer named Twenty Grand, or Granny for short after a famous racehorse. He identifies how as a member of the household, the dog became more influential in his upbringing and more important than some other members of his family. The constant criticism that Kleinzahler claims he would receive from his parents and grandmother would generally be grounds for the beginning of a depressing memoir. His crazy descriptions of his glue sniffing brother or bookworm sister help shed a different light on what was certainly not a flattering childhood. The way he describes it, in fact, makes everything that happened seem funny, for example, the dog and children hiding in fear in the upstairs bathroom while their father went off and destroyed everything in sight. Kleinzahler also claims that he was a mistake, that he was conceived while his mother was in a drunken frenzy, and that her mother had an insane rule over his mom and her sisters. These are all ingredients for a disastrous childhood, but through the eyes of August Kleinzahler, it all seems almost normal. He makes it hard not to laugh at such gruesome misfortune, the way he describes the various characters in his early childhood, especially the dog. As the author describes the importance of his dog, he also goes on to equally describe the many interesting and unique......

...Dog Swimming a. importance of swimming Just as swimming for people is recognized for its conditioning and therapeutic value, so has it been recognized for “man’s best friend” -the dog. For dogs that are overweight, need conditioning, or have disabilities that make normal exercise painful or inappropriate, swimming can provide an excellent alternative or supplement to ground-based programs. Also, swimming can provide dogs excellent rehabilitation therapy, aerobic conditioning, exercise, relaxation, interaction with other dogs and great of fun! b. how to swim Dogs, like all animals, have the natural ability to swim but generally have to learn water confidence before a specific swimming program can be developed. There are two swimming pools in our company. A training pool provides the initial swimming introduction and allows the dog to gain their water confidence. The main pool allows the dog to swim in 30 yard laps or to swim freely to retrieve, train or just swim for the fun of it. Swim Center staff performs the initial swimming of the dog, but owners are encouraged to take over once the dog has graduated from the training class. Dogs wear a chest harness for support and are walked down a gentle sloping ramp into the water. For dogs with paralysis or inability to walk, they are gently lifted and placed into the water and supported by the harness, or in some cases a flotation device may be used, while they develop their swimming stroke. Once the dog is......

...enlgish 921 potty The dog is a loving companion to a man. He is happy to go everywhere with his master. He shows his affection for his master by wagging his tail and licking his hand or face. Dogs were not always like this. Overtime humans have domesticated dogs into making them loving pets. At one point dogs were able to pee wherever they want, eat whatever they want, and do whatever they want. Now we provide our dogs boundaries and train them to become our best friends. Eating and playing comes naturally to dogs just as it does to humans when they are born. Just like human babies one thing that does not come naturally to dogs is being potty trained. Adding a furry litte friend to the family sounds like a lot of fun and many would not think of it as such a difficult task to do since all dogs do is eat and play which obviously does not need to be taught to then but the hard part comes when it is time for them to relieve themselves and they choose do to this task on your living room floors, bedrooms, and bathrooms. For most dog owners who have little to no dog experience potty training can be a very difficult task to do but I am here to make this job a tad bit easier for you and your furry friend. Potty training your dog or puppy requires far more than a few stacks of old newspapers, it calls for vigilance, patience, plenty of commitment and above all, consistency. The first step to potty training is introducing the spot you would like your dog to go potty. Like babies,......

...Most people said that dogs are man’s best friend and a great companion. They had been domesticated ever since the beginning of time. They are different breeds of dogs throughout the whole world and in this essay that I’m writing about, I’m going to compare and contrast three unique and one of some kind types of dogs that I chose to write about. They are the Basset Hound, the Chihuahua, and last but not least the Pit Bull. What makes these dogs so similar is that they are the most popular pets in the world. They ordinarily remain loyal to considerate masters, and because of this they have been called man’s best friend. A dog fits easily into family life. When a master tells a dog that it is good, the animal happily wags its tail. But when a master scolds a dog, it skulks away with a sheepish look and with its tail tucked between its legs. Some dogs can herd animals in a farm, and some of them can also serve as watch dogs, or even as playful family pets. Dogs are even trained as guard dogs in peacetime by the U.S. Army and other military services. Because of their keen sense of smell, the police at times to track down escaped prisoners use dogs. Law enforcement agencies also rely on the dog’s acute sense of smell to uncover illegal drugs. And specially trained dogs serve as the “eye” of the blind, guiding steps of their sightless masters around obstacles and hazards. However there are some characteristics that make the Basset Hound, Chihuahua, and the Pit Bull......

The typical little happy family, he works at a gas station properly not too far away from home. He is executive officer, which is a pretty respected rank in that area.

...A dog is man's best friend." That common saying may contain some truth, but dogs are not the only animal friend whose companionship people enjoy. For many people, a cat is their best friend. Despite what dog lovers may believe, cats make excellent housepets as they are good companions, they are civilized members of the household, and they are easy to care for. In the first place, people enjoy the companionship of cats. Many cats are affectionate. They will snuggle up and ask to be petted, or scratched under the chin. Who can resist a purring cat? If they're not feeling affectionate, cats are generally quite playful. They love to chase balls and feathers, or just about anything dangling from a string. They especially enjoy playing when their owners are participating in the game. Contrary to popular opinion, cats can be trained. Using rewards and punishments, just like with a dog, a cat can be trained to avoid unwanted behavior or perform tricks. Cats will even fetch! In the second place, cats are civilized members of the household. Unlike dogs, cats do not bark or make other loud noises. Most cats don't even meow very often. They generally lead a quiet existence. Cats also don't often have "accidents." Mother cats train their kittens to use the litter box, and most cats will use it without fail from that time on. Even stray cats usually understand the concept when shown the box and will use it regularly. Cats do have claws, and owners must make provision for this. A tall...

...Rough Draft Dogs are better equipped in the household families of today, Basenji’s and Rat Terriers are the two best pets that one can own. Most people have a hard time choosing what they think is the best pet for them. Most people want an animal that has some energy but not too much! They also want a dog that can be gentle with them and their children, but can also be protective and a guard dog when the time calls for it. Some people think that size matters when you want these qualities in a pet, but they really don’t! People of today have just been deceived into thinking that way. Basenjis and Rat Terriers carry these qualities without being too big to be uncomfortable or to small that they can’t do their jobs. Basenjis and Rat Terriers are both protective of their owners and are very loyal to them. Families want to have security with their dogs; they don’t want them to be TOO friendly to just anyone but they don’t want them to be too aggressive either. Both animals are very cautious about strangers and though they might not necessarily bite them they will make sure that they are noticed by the intruders. They will make sure that they are in between the strangers and their owners in case they need their assistance. Basenjis and Rat Terriers are very watchful and if they see or hear anything they automatically alert their owners that something is not right. Even if it is something big like seeing someone outside or something small, like seeing another animal. Both......
