Analysis Papers Using D.I.E. Framework

The point of the analysis papers is twofold.

1. Show me that you can take a class concept and apply it to real day relevance.

2. Show me that you can evaluate and determine a credible source of information.

For this class we will follow is called the D.I.E. Framework. Describe, Interpret, and Evaluate. You must describe and define the concept that you have chosen to use. What’s your concept? Put it into your own words. What is the object of this concept? In what kinds of situation might we find this concept? You must then interpret your concept with a real-world example.

Find an example that really highlights the concept you have chosen. What are possible explanations for this example? Bring the concept to life by highlighting the example you’ve found. How do the two things relate to each other? Finally, you must evaluate your concept and example. Bring in the experts. What do they say about the example you’re using? Where is the controversy? What is the conflict or dilemma?
