Use Fredrick Jackson Turner\’s \”The Significance of The Frontier in American History\” to infer meaning to Nike\’s ad \”Come Out of Nowhere\”.
Although the Westward expansion has little to do with the Nike ad, it provides great insight to the individuality, determination and inspiring greatness that Come Out of Nowhere depicts. Many come from humble roots and aspire to achieve greatness, in stepping out, one must be willing to tackle the trials along the way. I believe that as we learn to work with the resources we are given, we value the hardship, lessons and determination which shapes us into great individuals. As individuals, if we give up because it was \”too hard\”, or because we didn\’t have exactly what we needed to succeed, we would not be an inspiration to others that follow. We would not be able leave our own prints to make this nation the great nation that is America.

This essay will require you to write two consolidated summaries, one of your lens text and one of your object text. Your reader should have a clear understanding of both before
Your paper should employ strong topic sentences and logical, correctly punctuated transition phrases.
Aside from your summaries, each body paragraph should focus on one specific aspect of the object-text at time.
Your work should not be an extended comparison/contrast of the lens text and object-text. Comparison/contrast work is focused too much on pointing to the similarities and differences between the texts. Your goal is to generate new, unique meaning from the object text by borrowing the perspective of the lens text. One way to do this is to limit your reference to the lens text to the summary of it and the conclusion, where you may more explicitly and completely explain how it offers meaning to the object text.
At the end of your paper, in a two-sentence and bolded paragraph directly after your conclusion, ask two questions about your paper. I will answer these two questions and these two questions only. You should think very carefully of what you want answered, and how you can ask the question specifically enough and thoughtfully enough to receive a helpful answer.
Revised, academic prose
Avoid metacommentary (referencing your paper or parts of the paper within the paper itself) and narrating your discovery process (referencing your steps, struggles, epiphanies, or other experiences you had while writing or preparing for the essay. These usually but not always involving I statements. These experiences might inform you about assumptions and initial readings others might share, but avoid any sense of chronicling or journaling your own process).
Be sure to introduce your quotes. Eliminate floating quotations, which are quotations that stand as their own sentences.
Dont forget in-text citations!
Avoid the words and phrases you, thing, This is, clearly, obviously, and (if the sentence still works without it) that.
