Project Nim Film
Project Nim Essay
Directions: This should not be a difficult essay. Prior to taking this class, you should have mastered the five paragraph essay. If you have not mastered it already or would like a review, simply Google “5 paragraph essay” and you will get plenty of hits. The Purdue Writing Center website is certainly credible.
This paper, then, is a five paragraph essay. It is a super important concept because it is the foundation of most essay writing. We will follow this format when we write our research paper, though your paper will be longer than five paragraphs. The concept will remain the same: intro, body, conclusion, topic sentence, transitions, etc.

For the Nim essay, you will be allowed to write about ONE of the following prompts regarding things that were said or implied during the film. Do you agree or disagree:
1) “You can’t give human nurturing to an animal that can kill you.”
3) “If you had dark places in your heart, Nim would know and wouldn’t like you.”
4) “You can’t test animals and have it be humane.”
5) A sign that read: “Cleveland Armory to the rescue. Here my troubles are over.”
Some of you missed parts of the film. You can order it Amazon.com if you’d like, and you can certainly find a lot of the scenes on Youtube. You might be able to Project Nim elsewhere on the Internet.

Points Breakdown:
Structure: Was your essay five paragraphs? Did it have an introduction, three body paragraphs and a conclusion? Did it have solid topic sentences? Did it have transitions?
Paragraph Development: Were paragraphs sufficient developed? Was each paragraph at least 8 sentences long? Did it have multiple references from the text or did student just wing it based on common sense—don’t do this; refer to the text.
Persuasive Argument: Did essay take a clear stand and argue their position?
Techniques: Did student use the techniques that were discussed from They Say, I Say?
Note: I had a few students who wanted to get started on this essay over break. This is subject to some slight changes and clarifications. For examples, I need to figure out how many points and which techniques I’m expecting in your essay. I will figure that out later. We will go over this rubric in class on Monday.
I am submitting this to you without proofreading. I will hand you a copy on Monday and it will be proofread and final.
Cheers!
