“Case Study: Yale – Chilling Free Speech or Meeting Speech With Speech?”
Instructions:

  • You must use MLA Research Guidelines – including correct in-text citations and a “Works Cited.”
  • You must introduce sources appropriately – author, title, and an accurate restatement of what the source is about (take your time with this)
  • You must introduce the controversy/issue and clearly establish its context – the who, where, when, what and why
  • Your goal is to, using the above primary and secondary sources,either: a. analyze the controversy, exploring its different sides and drawing conclusions about the case (in this case you are in the role of a jurist) as it relates to free speech/inclusivity issues, or b. pick a side and argue in favor of it – in this case you are in the role of the defense (for your side)
  • First, before stating your thesis, clearly introduce the controversy: introduce and explain the three primary documents/emails. Then, explain the controversy – what happened on campus? How did the public/media respond? What is controversial? What are the free speech/inclusivity aspects of the case? What are the different “sides”?
  • Your thesis should state one of the above purposes: For example, if you are choosing option a. you might write something like this – In order to understand the complexities of the free speech and inclusivity issues involved in the Yale Halloween Controversy, it’s important to clarify the different sides/perspectives of the case. My purpose here is to consider the case and to draw reasonable conclusions regarding what happened, why and the outcomes. Or b. I will argue that in regard to the Yale Halloween Controversy….
  • Remember that each time you introduce a source, you must use a signal phrase: Author’s name, title of article/essay, and the author’s thesis/purpose. Remember that you must use a good balance of direct quotes, paraphrasing and summarizing of sources, but that the sources must support/show your points/analysis/arguments – not the other way around. For that reason, you must have a clear point (of your making) in each paragraph.

 

  • You must draw appropriate and well-thought out/supported conclusions.

 

  • You must provide a Works Cited – which correlates with in-text citations.
