Cultural and Ethnic Studies Homework Help

| January 14, 2016

Before you begin the paper, it will be useful to review the sections offered by the Purdue OWL (see Webliography under MLA Guidelines) that pertain to planning and composing an essay. Not every word will be relevant for this particular analytic paper, but the strategies offered will prove valuable. Look particularly to the sections titled “Writing About Fiction” and “Writing About Literature.”

For this timed essay, please read “The Condition of Black Life Is One of Mourning” by Claudia Rankine. Become familiar with the terms and ideas in this essay. Keep the essay available to you as you work, you’ll need to specifically reference the text but be prepared to offer your own ideas and examples as you answer the essay question. The ultimate goal of the final Research Paper is your presentation of a position on a race-related issue in the U.S. based at least in part by our encounter with Ghettoside and The Homicide Report. We’re starting here with a discussion of how black lives are lived, lost, and seen in our culture as presented by Rankine.

The timed essay for Research Paper Part One is a bit less formal than the usual work required at the college level in that I do not expect the paper to be fully edited.

You will receive full points just for completing this assignment; I will read your responses, but I will not grade them. Your peer-edited and revised submission of this essay, due in Week Three, will be graded.

A strong timed essay will:

be the result of careful use of the time allowed. (For example, it is not wise to spend time looking up and copying out a direct quotation when a summary or paraphrase will do.)
answer the essay question briefly but directly and fully in a clear thesis statement in the first paragraph and stay focused on that thesis throughout the essay.
have a logical plan of organization and be at least five paragraphs in length while not blindly following the “five-paragraph” structure. Note: A full five paragraphs are not expected for the Practice Timed Essay.
be composed of strong paragraphs that offer clear ideas that develop the thesis, including an introductory paragraph, body paragraphs, and a concluding paragraph.
support the main ideas of paragraphs with good reasoning, examples, and illustrations.
not necessarily have perfect grammar and style but will have allowed enough time for a basic sentence-level revisio
