For this assignment, you will write a 1200-word critical analysis based on one of the following topics inspired by readings in our textbook, The McGraw-Hill Reader.  The paper will include quoting the text, as well as additional research from the library database or another approved and reliable source documented correctly in proper APA format.  This paper requires writing using Third Person Point of View and the persuasive mode.

The abstract should be 100 words and the body (excluding the cover page and reference page) of the paper should be 1000 words. Be sure to use the template for a research paper that you create in Week One, and provide direct support from your sources.  It would be best to use the readings from your textbook, but other reliable sources should also be used. At least four sources are required.


Government, Politics and Social Justice: Is America on the right road?

Read Overview and Declaration on Independence:  p. 322-329

Essays:  ‘The Right Road to America?,” Amy Chua  pp. 335-339

“American Dreamer,” Bharati Mukherjeee  pp. 355-360

These are broad topics meant to inspire further exploration and discovery of a narrower subject for the paper, should be persuasive and explore a debatable idea.

These essays are recommended, but you may choose relevant to your topic from other essays in the same chapter.


History, Culture and Civilization

In “A World Not Neatly Divided,” Amartya Sin states that “the befuddling influence of a singular classification also traps those who dispute the thesis of clash: To talk about the “Islamic world” or “the Western world” is already to adopt an impoverished vision of humanity as unalterable divided.”  In a persuasive essay, address the future of a diversified America.  Can a nation maintain a strong sense of self and still remain open to outside influences?  Is national identity crucial to a nation’s survival?  How would you describe America’s national identity?
