You’ve got a good topic and thesis. Need to work on unnecessary capitalizations.

You’ve got a good topic and thesis.
Need to work on unnecessary capitalizations. Elderly, television, media, western culture etc don’t need capitalized. https://www.grammarly.com/blog/capitalization-rules/
Also watch for subject verb agreement. Elderly is plural so the verb needs to be plural in the last sentence of the intro. https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/general_writing/grammar/subject_verb_agreement.html
You need at least five college level sources. The Cornwell and the hirschman would count towards that but not the rest. You are missing a lot of citation info on some of these -like the hirschman doesn’t have the title
You keep saying that the media portrays them as feeble etc – but you don’t give any concrete examples to back up your claims. Focus on evidence here. Prove your case.
You are missing in text citations. For any claim in the paper that is not your own analysis or common knowledge – you need MLA formatted in text citations. See https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/mla_style/mla_formatting_and_style_guide/mla_in_text_citations_the_basics.html

Go to the Nineteenth-Century U.S. Newspapers database and search for “slavery” or “slave” between the years 1820-1860 in a city, town, or state of your choosing. For example, you might search for yellow fever in Virginia, and compare articles from towns and cities. Or, you might compare the results from one state to those of another state. Then write an essay analyzing at least TWO different articles, and discussing what you learned. You should develop a single thesis that unifies your analysis of the two articles with evidence from the articles that you chose. Your essay should reflect your knowledge of course readings and must include specific references to newspaper articles you have found interesting from the database.

 

 

The topic of this assignment is: the reporting of one current or recent event by

The topic of this assignment is: the reporting of one current or recent event by at least 2 separate media sources. Your goal is not to determine whether or not the representation is real or truthful. Instead, you should analyze the rhetoric the news media is using. Additionally, you should consider what this reporting and rhetoric tells you about the cultural message as related to the topic. This assignment will be 1000-1500 words and worth a total of 100 points.
Learning Goals:
At the end of this assignment, you should be able to analyze the way the news media creates cultural messages via their rhetoric, specific to a recent event.
Steps to creating this paper:
Select the event: Find an event that has happened since the beginning of this semester and has been reported in the news (print, online, or TV).
Find 2 news reports from 2 different sources: The more ideologically different, the better. For example, can you find a report from Fox News and one from Pacifica Radio?
Pre-write: Do a 5-minute pre-write on an argument. This is meant to help you brainstorm the way the two news reports are different and the ways they are the same. Try to write down 2 ways they are similar and different.
Final Paper, Report summary: First, you need to summarize the news reports. What are the sources? What are their political leanings? What form do the reports take (editorial? Discussion? Report? Blog? TV report)? What does each of the reports state or report?
Final Paper, Rhetorical Analysis: Next you will analyze the logos, ethos, and pathos of each report.
Logos – What is the argument the report is making? What support do they use? What
assumptions do they make? What logical fallacies? (Note: while we believe news reports
are objective or unbiased, this is not the case. They make arguments as well, so try to see past the veil of objectivity to what facts and support they use to make their claim).
Ethos – How does the news organization try to support its credibility?
Pathos – What emotions are they trying to evoke in their audience?
Final Paper, Cultural Critique: You need to show how these news reports frame events (and the people within them) and create ideologies for us.
Develop an introduction with a Clear Thesis Statement: The introduction should start with an attention-getter or hook. This should be cited, meaning that it should be a quote, fact, statistic, or definition. You should cite it with a signal phrase (According to….) and in-text in a parenthetical citation.
Second, the introduction should include a clear thesis statement. This is perhaps the most critical step in the writing process. You must ask yourself “What is my purpose for writing this essay?” For this assignment, your thesis statement should make an argument and should follow this format: “This paper argues that (insert event) is represented in the news media as (insert adjective)”
Body paragraphs: the body of your essay should be devoted to supporting evidence for your thesis statement. You should have separate paragraphs devoted to:
(1): Describing the history of the event (This should be CITED, but can be from the internet, but not Wikipedia)
(2): 2 paragraphs describing the reports separately (please cite paragraphs!).
(3): 2-6 paragraphs analyzing the rhetoric of the reports.
(4): 2 paragraphs analyzing the cultural impact of the reports separately. What cultural
message are they trying to get you to believe?
***Don’t forget to cite EVERYTHING in-text and in works cited/references following MLA or APA style
State your conclusion: The purpose of your conclusion is to clearly, but briefly reiterate what you wanted to accomplish in your essay. In other words, it should reflect (mirror) your thesis. Note: it should not simply be a restatement of your thesis. It is designed to have the reader (re)contemplate the thesis, in light of the evidence you provided in the body of your paper.
*** Remember, this is an essay that requires an introduction, thesis statement, support, and conclusion.
Format your paper following MLA or APA style (double spaced, 12 pt Times New Roman Font, 1 inch margins).
Note the word count at the end, after the works cited/ references.

You will need to have at least 300 words in this Debate post plus full references …Research must be done in the library using JSTOR database or other sources that are creditable.
To participate in the debate, you need to research both positions.
Please remember this debate take place during the 1850s. Before the Civil War, before Emancipation Proclamation and after Jefferson has been dead for more than 35 years.
The required work will help you.
Who will you be in the debate?
Your character does not have to be an actual historical figure. You can be, for example, journalist, politician, teacher, a domestic servant or a sharecropper. Just make sure that you ground your analysis in academic sources and you demonstrate you have done all the required work by integrating it into your debate positions.
Stay in character for your responses means if you say you are a certain name than each response should have this person’s name or that of the person your are corresponding with in each response is part of the debating.
Also no modern day history facts should be used…in this debate Lincoln is still alive…meaning discussing the Emancipation Proclamation is not appropriate but the rumor of it can be discussed…remember the Emancipation Proclamation was a gradual emancipation document because it only freed slaves in the Confederate states but allowed Union states to still continue slavery.
After the initial post, you are then required to continue the debate by posting responses to the arguments of the opposing group.
The two peer responses are due by Friday. I encourage you to post more than what is required.
Whatever you write should be in character. Be creative! Remember that everything you argue, although in character, must be grounded in academic research and must demonstrate you have done the required work.
