analytical essays are not summaries but instead offer a response to the Questions included with the document readings. Analytical essays are 2-3 pages in length and dissect the documents. DO NOT conduct any research – this is your analysis of the documents. I will attach the only source needed for this essay. Two complete pages is expected. These assignments should be typed, Times New Roman 12-point font, double-spaced, and have 1” margins. In the Top Left Corner of the first page: include your complete name as it appears in your school records, the name of the course, the name of the instructor, the date, and the chapter where the documents are located. Double-check your essay before turning it in to ensure it does not contain spelling or grammatical errors. Include a creative and original title for your papers (not “Analytical Essay 1, 2, etc.”), and number your pages; the first page of text is page 1. The essay does NOT need a separate title page, be economical with our natural resources. As these are NOT research papers parenthetical citations with the document’s author/title and page number will suffice. The Question that asked for this analytical essay is: How does Muir describe experiencing the earthquake? Who do you think was the intended audience for this item? How does his intended audience shape the word choices and language he uses to describe the Yosemite Valley earthquake?

explore how Settler Colonialism has impacted historically – and continues to impact today – Peoplehood among a particular Indigenous community of your choosing.

Throughout this semester, we continue to explore two key concepts: 1) Peoplehood, and 2) Settler Colonialism. For term paper, you will explore how Settler Colonialism has impacted historically – and continues to impact today – Peoplehood among a particular Indigenous community of your choosing. Please write an essay that: Identifies one Indigenous people who have been affected by Settler Colonialism (in the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, Australia or another setting). ***Please write about the Comanche Nation Tribe.*** Describes key ways in which the four elements of Peoplehood – relationship to place, language, sacred history, and ceremonial cycle – traditionally were expressed by that people. Examine the ways in which Settler Colonialism has historically impacted each of the four elements of Peoplehood. Demonstrates the manner in which Settler Colonialism continues to reverberate within the community today. Discuss how the community has worked to maintain the elements of Peoplehood in the face of Settler Colonialism in the past and/or today. Please note, this is not merely a “history of the tribe” that you choose. Instead, you are being asked to connect and analyze that history to the concept of Settler Colonialism and its continuing impacts on the elements of Peoplehood. How did the community/culture you choose express Peoplehood? How has Settler Colonialism (its practices and/or conceptions) had an impact on that specific community? How has the community responded? Here are the specific requirements for the essay: It must be between 2,000 and 2,500 words long. Clearly and strongly address all elements of Peoplehood for the community you choose. Clearly address how Settler Colonialism has impacted each element of Peoplehood for the community you choose. You may choose any Indigenous people in the United States, Canada, New Zealand or Australia except for the Tohono O’odham, Ojibwe, Inuit or Hopi. Per the syllabus: “All writing assignments must be typed: use 1” margins, double spacing, and 11 or 12 point Times or Times New Roman font. Be sure to meet minimum page requirements for all assignments… Use whichever reference style you are most comfortable with (MLA, APA, or Chicago)—be clear, consistent, and comprehensive in citing your sources. All assignments must include in-text citations accompanied by a Works Cited page. Remember: Titles of films, books, newspapers, journals, TV series, magazines, and music albums must be italicized or underlined. Titles of book chapters, articles, songs, TV episodes, short stories, and poems must be in quotation marks.

The purpose of the book is to give you a detailed account of the main issues and strategies of the major party campaigns.

Choose any book on a presidential election (except the elections of 2016 and 2020). The purpose of the book is to give you a detailed account of the main issues and strategies of the major party campaigns. Your selection does not have to be formally approved (although you might want to discuss it with me). What did the candidacies of the major party candidates represent? Were there any third-party candidates that were significant to the election? What were the primary strengths and weaknesses of the candidates? What were the primary issues in the race?
What factors were considered the most important in determining the victory and the loser of the race? Did each candidate shape their campaigns to fit a particular state strategy, given the dictates of the Electoral College system? Did the victor have any coattails, meaning did his party perform well in the House and Senate races? More importantly, what was the meaning of the election in terms of American politics, both in the short and long term?
2. Choose any biographical or autobiographical book about any president of the United States and his time in office. The purpose of the book is to give you a detailed empirical understanding of a particular administration. Your selection does not have to be formally approved (although you might want to discuss it with me). Nevertheless, the more thorough the volume you read, the more prepared you will be to write a thoughtful, analytical essay. Before starting the assignment, make sure that the presidential biography or autobiography that you have selected actually contains enough detailed consideration of the topics to be addressed in the paper.
Once you have read the biography or autobiography, select any two (2) topics you find especially interesting with respect to that president (e.g., the media and foreign policy). Then, thinking and writing with care and precision, craft an essay that addresses what you believe to be the most analytically fruitful mix of the following questions: A. What is the significance of the two topics for the administration? Did issues relevant to them set the tone of the presidency or was their management by the president linked to the success or failure of the administration? B. Having established the contest for evaluating your president with respect to these two topics, how did the president respond to the political, technical, or managerial demands that these issues imposed? C.
Based on all that is relevant from the course, how well did the president meet the challenges introduced by issues in the two topical areas? What facilitated successful or appropriate presidential action, or what contributed to failed or inopportune presidential action? How free or constrained was the president to act and to achieve his intended objectives?
