Introduction
This week you continue to work on your paper that addresses a current controversial issue. This paper is to be in the form of an argument. You have selected a topic and chosen issues related to that topic; this week, you will thoroughly research both sides of the issues you have chosen. Keep in mind that your paper must define the issue, present evidence on both sides of the issue, and then argue that one side is stronger and more persuasive than the other. Your paper must address at least three relevant aspects of the issue. More specific directions for each part of the paper will be found within the specific assignment in the weekly modules; the assignment this week is to research both the pro and con sides of the issues you have chosen to address.
Here is a brief breakdown of the project so that you can plan your time in the course:
Week Task
Week 1 Topic Selection
Week 3 Issue Review (both sides)
Week 5 Thesis & Annotated Bibliography (both sides)
Week 7 Argumentative Paper
Instructions
This week, you will conduct an issue review for your selected topic for your project. Present a brief report of your research on both sides of the issue. This should include the following:
• Citation of your sources
• Links to the sources where available
• Brief descriiption of the content of each of the sources (50 to 80 words for each source)
Your research review should address at least three (3) aspects of the issue that is the subject of your paper and must present at least one pro and one con article review on each aspect. Sources should be scholarly or of very high substantive quality.
Click on the following link to view an example. The first aspect is written out completely, with APA citation and brief descriiption of content. The next two aspects should be completely written out by you in your report, including correct APA citation and brief descriiption of content.

Because the topics vary widely, the nature of your research will also vary. If you are writing about gene therapy, for example, you will have to support your points with scholarly medical opinion. You may need to review researching techniques. Visit the research links provided in the Required Resources section in this activity for more information.

There are three parts to an op-ed: 1) a clear thesis; 2) information about the issue; 3) solutions to resolve the issue.

You may pick a topic from the material covered in class thus far. There are three parts to an op-ed: 1) a clear thesis; 2) information about the issue; 3) solutions to resolve the issue. In other words, you will need to describe the social justice issue, apply concepts that you have learned in the class so far, and propose a solution to addressing the issue you have chosen to discuss. I would also strongly encourage you to send me an email if you are not sure about your topic.
1. Think of an engaging title
2. Include your by-line (Name)
3. Opening paragraph is typically an engaging statement or anecdote to draw in reader, and a statement of the purpose of your essay.
4. The next 3-5 paragraphs provide evidence in support of your thesis. In some cases, this may be evidence challenging the position you are arguing against. The evidence may be statistics, examples from other countries, personal experience/observation, or (in rare instances) a highly compelling anecdote.
5. The concluding 2-4 paragraphs will suggest a concrete plan of action for addressing the issue raised in your op-ed. It can be support for a public policy currently being debated in Congress, a cultural or social change you would like to see implemented, or even a change of corporate policies. The most important thing is that you have considered both the benefits and costs of this recommended course of action, and that you persuade readers that the benefits will indeed outweigh the costs.

Given our efforts to look at racism from a white lens and the concept of “whiteness” itself, please write a 3-page paper detailing your thoughts on all you have learned.

“Over the last 2 weeks you’ve been asked to read: Chapters 6 & 11 in Takaki (A DIFFERENT MIRROR – SEE ATTACHED), The White Fragility book, and the White Rage book and we’ve watched videos such as White Like Me in class. Given our efforts to look at Racism from a White lens and the concept of “Whiteness” itself, please write a 3-page paper detailing your thoughts on all you have learned. For many of us, this is the first time we’ve had formal time dedicated to what it means to be “White” as opposed to what it means to be Black or other. Give insights using specific videos or readings from this section of the course.”

Don’t be tempted to skip steps.

Required Resources
Read/review the following resources for this activity:
• Textbook: Chapter 4, 5
• Lesson
Instructions
Remember – these journal questions require more thinking than writing. Think about exactly what you are asked to do, and then write as economically as possible.
For this journal assignment, answer each of the following prompts:
• Important Idea
o Considering only the Introduction to Chapter 5, in terms of developing critical thinking and reasoning, what do you consider is the most valuable and important idea in that section? You can either summarize or directly quote the text; then, briefly explain why you find this idea important and valuable.
• Critical Thinking
o In Chapter 5, the section “Making Arguments” states: “In some ways applying our core critical thinking skills to analysis can be more difficult than offering an evaluative opinion. Analysis, like interpretation, is understanding at a deep level (p. 89)”
 What concepts discussed in Chapter 4 might make analysis of a statement difficult – and why?
• Beliefs
o Why do you believe what you believe?
o What is your “evidence”?
o Test one of your beliefs by asking yourself, “Why?” As you answer each “why,” go down another layer – four layers will probably give you a good idea of why you believe what you believe.
o Your product should show a well-reasoned and logical basis for your belief. Stay away from the big stuff, like believing in God, or who to vote for in the next election, and don’t look for sources – this is about what you believe and why you believe it. After all, this is only an 8-week course, and we can’t settle everything!
o Click on the following link for an example of layers of why:
Link: Example of Layers of Why

Note
Don’t be tempted to skip steps. If you start with layer 5, you have just opened up a whole new line of “whys.” For example, why should everyone be afforded an opportunity to reach his or her highest potential? After all, for most of the history of the world, that has not been the case.
If you include references to outside sources (beyond the textbook), make sure you cite them properly.

Explain why those things are important.

1. “Africa in Cinema” is a course where students learn about Africa through film. Lumumba is set in the period leading up to and just after Congo’s independence. Half of a Yellow Sun depicts a roughly similar period in Nigeria’s history. Sarafina shows the resistance to Apartheid during the 1970s/1980s. For each movie note the two most important things you learned about the historical period it depicts. Explain why those things are important. Describe how each movie depicted those two things that you learned. (Three paragraphs)
2. Compare and contrast how violence is portrayed in Sarafina and Blood Diamond. Using examples from each film, explain what each film tells us about violence. (Two paragraphs)All you have to do is cite these two movies movies about violence
3. Gender was an important theme in each of the three movies. Using examples from each movie, compare and contrast the portrayals of women in each film. (One paragraph)
