Building a Paper Block-by-Block EUH 2030 – Spring 2021 Professor Peterson Assignment: Write an original paper that answers one of the two prompts below. Instead of writing the paper as an organic whole however we want you to break it into its component ‘building blocks’: summary analysis and argument. Your paper should include the following sections with subheadings in this order: Summary: Introduce your readers to the theme of your paper and in no more than three sentences per text explain each author’s most relevant ideas in your own words. Analysis: Contextualize the texts and explain how they relate to one another. Why is each author writing and to whom? Where do the authors share similar themes biases or claims and where do they differ? Why are these similarities and/or differences important? Argument: Make a claim in the form of a two-part thesis that answers one of the prompts below. Then narrate how you would make a case for that claim if you were writing a traditional essay: Do not structure these arguments as in a traditional essay; rather talk us through how you would build your argument as if you were explaining it to Dr Peterson before you sat down to write it. What moves will you make to build an argument and why? Clarification: In essence the first two sections repeat what you did on the first and second papers; the difference here is that you need to be much more selective in summarizing and analyzing the texts in ways that address the prompt. The third section is new: it’s aimed at helping you think about how you might fit the first two sections into a traditionally-structured paper. Purpose: In this assignment you will learn to write the ‘building blocks’ for an argumentative essay or persuasive paper. In order to make an effective argument you have to understand the works you are engaging put them in dialogue and use them strategically as evidence to support your own assertions. You will do each step separately so that you can get a sense of what each ‘building block’ looks like before you put them all together for the next paper. Prompts: Choose one of the two following questions to answer: When to submit: A rough draft of at least 50% of your paper is due by Sunday 3/7 for peer-review. The final draft of your paper is due Friday 3/19. Requirements and Guidelines: Your paper should be 1250-1500 words. In this course all writing should be formatted according to Chicago style: 12pt Times New Roman font double spaced with one-inch margins. Please include your name and a short title at the top of the page. PLEASE NOTE: Grading Criteria: When we grade your analysis we will look for you to: The best papers will also: Requirements: 1250-1500 words 6+ Paragraphs with citations What evidence you would draw from the texts to support your claim?How will you use your analysis to demonstrate that your thesis is valid?

What criticisms of European civilization emerge from Black Man’s Burden All Quiet on the Western Front and Goddamn This War!? What common theme do these criticisms share? The period from 1789 to 1918 witnessed a major debate over the role of government in society – a debate you know as the ‘Social Question.’ Using three texts from this class (for example Siéyès Mill Tristan Nightingale etc.) argue why you think the Social Question became such a central concern for European thinkers during this period. You must include citations for all relevant examples summarized information or quotes. (Hint: All of the readings are properly cited in the syllabus page – you can copy the citations from there).
