Write one of these and bring it to class tomorrow.
A Prospectus Paragraph announces the subject of your paper and introduces some of the evidence you might be using. You should also try to include a “so what” in your prospectus paragraph. The “so what” is your analytical or interpretive point -- your interpretation or analysis of the evidence you produce.
Your prospectus paragraph does NOT appear in your paper. It is designed to get you thinking and organized before you begin writing the paper itself.
Your prospectus paragraph should be strong enough to allow you to write a thoughtful paper.
