History

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

the stories are :

1-Michael A. Gomez, Reversing Sail: A History of the Africa Diaspora (2004).
2-Manu Herbstein, Ama: A Story of the Atlantic Slave Trade (2000).

In the first half of this course, we have considered the African diaspora from 1400 until the 1800s. Drawing on the assigned readings, what impact did the slave trade have on the black experience in this period?
Details:
Whichever prompt you choose, you must address the assigned readings from the first part of the semester. You do not have to consider all of the readings for the whole first half of the semester, but you should use as many as possible to support your argument.

Word Count: minimum 500 words; maximum 750 words.

Grading:
This essay is worth 60% of your Midterm Exam grade (the other 40% comes from the in-class, short-answer portion).

If you do not include the word count, you will lose 5 points out of 60 points. If you do not meet the word requirement, or do not address the correct topic/readings, you will receive 0 points. Otherwise, the essay will be graded based on the student's demonstrated knowledge of the subject, use of readings, clarity of focus and organization. Students are expected to write a well-developed essay with a complete introduction, clearly identified thesis, body paragraphs that develop the thesis, and conclusion.

1) Make sure your essay has a title.
2) Make sure that your essay has a clearly articulated thesis/argument in your introductory paragraph that you develop by presenting evidence in subsequent paragraphs.
3) Make sure your essay has a concluding paragraph and doesn't just end abruptly.
4) Be sure to include references (quotes) from the materials we have read in class as evidence to support your thesis/argument. Remember, you are only using class readings that appear on your syllabus. Do not bring in any outside materials.
5) When you reference the readings, follow proper citation guidelines, and include a bibliography. You can use any citation style (including MLA) as long as you are consistent. As an anthropologist, I prefer the AAA documentation style, which is explained here:

As previously noted, your essay will be graded based on your demonstrated knowledge of the topic, use of readings, clarity of focus and organization. You are expected to write a well-developed essay with a complete introduction, clearly identified thesis, body paragraphs that develop the thesis, and conclusion.

*Do not plagiarize.* If your essay is determined to have been plagiarized, you will receive a 0 on the assignment at a minimum, and risk failing the course.
