For Discussion 3, I’d like you to again practice with the art of engaging other theorists, other voices in the conversation. Review “The Yellow Wallpaper” and be sure that you’ve read “Rage and Redemption in The Yellow Wallpaper” (listed in the study materials for “The Yellow Wallpaper”) Additionally, please review Chapter 5 of They Say, I Say and work with one of the templates discussed in this chapter (which may be adapted to reflect your own voice).
Regularly, as part of the art of conversation in writing, a writer finds it useful to incorporate other voices, in support or in dissent, of the writer’s position. One way that we can incorporate other voices into our text is to use the source’s position as an introduction to our own. In this format, our claim (the response and assertion of our opinion) follows a brief summary of the source. The summary allows our audience to understand one part of the “conversation,” while our claim posits another side of that conversation—our opinion. Sometimes we will be in agreement, sometimes in disagreement, and still other times, we may agree in part and disagree in part with the source.
The remainder of the paragraph, then, is meant to extend that conversation—supporting our position, negating the opposition, and/or a combination of the two. Therefore, readers may see evidence from the original literature being discussed (i.e. quotations or paraphrases from The Picture of Dorian Gray) and/or evidence from the secondary source material (i.e. Punter’s article in this case).
Please write one paragraph that follows this very generic equation for writing “And Yet” Paragraphs (See Chapter 5 in They Say, I Say for more information on this writing strategy.).
We’ll use Johnson’s “Gilman’s Gothic Allegory: Rage and Redemption in ‘ The Yellow Wallpaper’” You may read the full article listed in the study materials for “The Yellow Wallpaper” or you may read the abridged article attached to this discussion.
Begin by introducing Johnson’s thesis and summarizing his argument in relation to the thesis. (See Chapter 5 for templates.)
Represent his argument fairly: make the best case for your critic. For our purposes on this discussion board, try to sum up his argument in a few sentences (for your essay, you may decide to give objections a full paragraph). Each paragraph should begin with a summary that slants toward the specific novel you’ll discuss in that paragraph.
Then, answer Johnson: here’s where your audience wants to see what you believe in relation to what Johnson has suggested (see templates in Chapter 4 Graff and Birkenstein). Your answer should include an affirmative answer (I agree), a negative answer (I disagree), or somewhere in between (I agree with a portion; I see validity in her theory, but…, etc.) along with reasoning (…because…, …since…, etc.)
Finally, support your answer with several quotation sandwiches: (see templates and discussion in Chapter 3).
Your paragraph should look like this (generally):
•    Summary of Johnson’s Article
•    Claim: Your opinion in relation to Johnson’s thesis
•    Evidence: Quotation from the source (This should be a quotation sandwich—see Chapter 3 from They Say, I Say.)
•    Elaboration: This should be your discussion of the quotation and how it proves your answer
•    Evidence: Paraphrase from the source (This should be a “paraphrase” sandwich—see Chapter 3 from They Say, I Say.)
•    Elaboration: This should be your discussion of the paraphrase and how it proves your answer
Additionally, you should be sure to include these items: 1) framed quotations and paraphrases (and many of your elaboration statements as well) (Graff and Birkenstein 41-47); 2) parenthetical citations (Chapter 11 of Writing and Revising); 3) transitions; 4) thoughtful language and syntax structures that reflect your understanding of the question and your analysis.
