One Book One College Format

For the One Book One College (OBOE) event please use this format.

OBOE – Title

The title should include OBOE and then the title of the blog.

Introduce what event you attended, when, and what was it.

Explain how the event is connected to the book Eleanor & Park. Most of the blog post should be analyzing the book in relation to the event. If you go to the Remember Philosophy? event, you would explain the relationship between nostalgia and how that adds to or helps explain the book. What did you learn in the event that adds to your understanding and analysis of the book.

Must be 400 to 500 words long, include a picture. More are OK as well.

Literary Analysis

For our next paper, we are going to write a literary analysis on Eleanor & Park. Literary analysis just means that we analyze something in a work of literature or a text. We can focus on themes, characters, issues, structure, or a single chapter. We will talk more about this as we discuss the novel in class.

Here is a great explanation of how to analyze literature. http://depts.gpc.edu/~dunowl/handouts/analyzing-literature.pdf
