In this assignment I want you to take on the persona of anartisanwho became a Patriot.
In the late 1760s and early 1770s (between the end of the Seven Years War and the beginning of the Revolution) you were upset with the imperial/colonial government. It is now a quarter-century down the road from your youth you are well into your middle-aged years with idealistic children and a grandchild or two of your own. You and your generation have sacrificed much to bring about the United States and its new government under the Constitution. President George Washington’s Administration is in place Congress has been elected and the form of the new government is taking shape. Are you satisfied with the new government under the recently ratified Constitution? Do you think your 20-something year old self (the protester from the 1760s) would be happy with the way things turned out? You have decided to write a treatise (a fancy word for an essay) upon this subject as a gift to your grandchildren. In it you will think about your main social political and economic grievances from the 1760s in relation to your current beliefs. Have things turned out well for you and other artisans? Have your grievances from the 1760s been redressed (or are no longer relevant)? Have new political economic or social issues replaced them for your socioeconomic group in the 1780s? Has your group met their social responsibilities to the new nation; have they compromised where needed for the greater good or selfishly looked after their own interests? What if anything is left to be done for your group? Most importantly would your 1760s self believe that you held onto your ethics even as war raged around you; have you remained true to the ethical stands you took in the 1760s or have you grown more pragmatic with age and experience?
The assignment is worth up to 100 points. The following factors are taken into account when we grade:
THESIS- Do you have a well thought out and clear thesis in your introduction? Does it provide a roadmap for your essay? Does each paragraph of the body have its own thesis?
EVIDENCE- You must have solid evidence for each point you raise in the thesis of the paragraph of the body. Evidence is not simply a statement there must be an explanation of how that evidence supports the thesis statement. You must provide a MINIMUM of THREE pieces of evidence in support of your argument in each paragraph of the body.
Example: If you were writing a paragraph on the causes of the Cold War you might use theBaruchPlan as an example. Simply writing theBaruchPlan was a cause of the Cold War in your paragraph would not adequately support an argument and would not earn a very high grade. However the following sentences would be analytical and earn a higher grade:
One cause of the Cold War was the failure of the United States and the Soviet Union to agree upon a plan for nuclear disarmament after World War II. TheBaruchPlan presented by the US would maintain the American atomic weapon advantage for the foreseeable future. This played into Stalin’s suspicions of the Americans’ true motivations toward the USSR.
You should have a minimum of three pieces of evidence in support of the thesis for each paragraph of the body.
HISTORICAL ACCURACY CLARITY AND LOGIC
Is your argument clear and does it make sense? Is it historically accurate? Does your evidence prove your point? Do you fully analyze change over time and explain why and how the change occured?
Have you properly cited? Have you used the format required in this course (modifiedTurabian). You must also FOOTNOTE (see information about creating a footnote in Word given at the beginning of the course). Parenthetical cites are NOT allowed.No research allowed so no outside sources.
