- Complete and integrate into your debate analysis what you learn from the interactive exercise, Washington or Du Bois?
- You will be assigned what your position is. Post an argument of at least 300 words. You must counter the arguments of at least 2 other students with responses of at least 100 words. You are encouraged to respond even more. Your two best responses will be graded. Do not forget that you must demonstrate in your arguments that you have learned from all the required work. It is important that you properly cite (according to the citation style of your major) so your opponents will know from where you took your information.
- Remember each week to check the grade book for my feedback, and click Comments.
- Read the lesson for this week.
The initial post with well referenced facts is due by Wednesday, 11:55 p.m. ET and 2 peer responses are due by Friday, 11:55 p.m. ET. Do not research on the Internet.
The analysis for your debate posts should come from your textbook, the lectures, videos, and the research you conducted in the APUS Library.
You have been divided into two groups. Group A will support Booker T. Washington’s position. Group B will support W. E. B. Du Bois’s position. To participate in the debate, you need to research both positions. 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, 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 because each response is part of the debating.
Group A: Your last name begins with AM.
Group B: Your last name begins with NZ.
The initial post will be at least 300 words. You are then required to continue the debate by posting responses to the arguments of the opposing group. At least two responses must be at least 100 words. You are encouraged to post more than this. Your two best responses will be graded. 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. You must cite. Cite the textbook, lessons, or if you use them, an academic scholarly outside source.
