Years ago, Columbus was considered a hero, because he discovered America. Today, we understand that he never reached mainland; instead, he may have visited Hispaniola, Jamaica, and other Caribbean islands. Furthermore, he was very cruel to the natives already living therehe forced them to work on the Spanish plantation-farms (encomiendas) and murdered them for no reason, to the extent that pregnant Indian women would flee into the jungle to have their children, and afterwards kill them, so that the Spaniards could not enslave them. What do you think of Columbus today? 2. We would not have known anything about the crimes against humanity which Columbus committed against the Indians were it not for the writings and testimony of Bartolome de las Casas, who had started out as a soldier of Columbus, but afterwards became a Catholic priest, working with the Indians. Was it right for de las Casas to turn against his former superior and testify against him? 3. Note that Columbus did a lot of his crimes out of sheer ignoranceslavery was common in those days. As a matter of fact, after five years, with most of the Indians dead (of diseases which the Spanish sailors and soldiers broughtSTDs, smallpox, and even the common cold, against which the natives had no natural antibodieshe allowed and encouraged the import of Black African enslaved persons. However, there was one instance where he stood up for the Indians, after a fashionsee p. 47, text, 20 lines (ll.) from page bottom, where he prevents his men from cheating the Indians in trade; e.g., giving them broken glass or broken leather straps in exchange for spun cotton or gold.

Part of writing an effective analytical research paper involves using evidence directly from your primary texts (the literature itself) as well as the works of other critics and scholars (secondary texts). Therefore, you will need to be able to analyze these secondary works, and to accurately quote, paraphrase and summarize these outside sources in your own essays. This assignment helps build these research skills. In fact, the article you analyze here (and the literature on which it’s based) could even become part of your research paper topic in future weeks, if you choose. For this assignment, choose a critical article from one of the GMC library databases (in Galileo, search the letter “L” under Databases A-Z) that makes a clear argument about any one of the stories you’ve read FOR THIS WEEK. The article you choose must provide MORE than basic biographical information and plot summary; it must make an opinionated argument about some aspect of the literary work. Your complete analysis should be at least 650 words in length. Analysis In your analysis, you should clearly identify the author’s thesis and main points by briefly SUMMARIZING the article. Your summary section should be no more than 250 words. No quotations in this section. You should then provide a critique of these main points and EXPLAIN how this article’s argument is relevant or convincing to you (or not), and why. This section should be at least 400 words, but can be longer. You should also include in the analysis section a QUOTE and a PARAPHRASE from the article, with appropriate in-text citations. MLA Style Your paper must be formatted according to MLA format (this includes having a header, double spacing, etc.) All quotations, paraphrases and summaries MUST be cited using MLA format. You must include a works-cited page at the end of your paper. For more information about MLA style, you should view the Purdue OWL’s pages on MLA: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/mla_style/mla_formatting_and_style_guide/mla_formatting_and_style_guide.html. Mechanics, Grammar, and Punctuation All written assignments should be mechanically and grammatically correct with proper punctuation. For more information on each of these, you should view the Purdue OWLs General Writing Resources page: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/general_writing/general_writing_introduction.html Structure The introduction should include a clear thesis statement. It should also clearly identify the title of the article you’ve chosen and the author’s name. Each body paragraph should have a clear topic sentence that relates back to the thesis. The information in each paragraph should relate to the topic sentence. In the body paragraphs, you may want to focus on individual points made by the author. This assignment is will be assessed using the Article Analysis Rubric
Your second full-length essay (1,000 words minimum, typed, double-spaced, WORD Count included at end, submitted through Blackboard) will be over the following topic: Assume you are the Producer/Designer for a planned revival of Royall Tylers The Contrast, as either stage play or film. How would go about adapting the piece for a 21st century audience? Social types and manners have changed since 1787, but some are still with us in evolved ways. What sort of characters from the contemporary gallery of types and stereotypes would you have play the different roles? What actors would you cast? How would you costume and design the piece? Think about the issues the play of dealing with and how these have come down to us: imitation vs. originality/authenticity; the serious/gravitas vs. the frivolous/trivial; natural vs. artificial; hierarchies of rank vs. the ideal of a level playing field, an equal opportunity, etc. Remember, while Tyler and other writers of the Early Republic were concerned with sharpening and defining the contrast between the United States and Great Britain, they were also exploring divisions, stresses, factions, within the young country. And while we no longer measure ourselves against Great Britain, those factions/divisions within the United States have grown exponentially over the last 232 years. So, you have a much more diversified cultural landscape from which to draw.
(Based on material from Week 1) Readings from this week include Bradford, Morton, Bradstreet, and Taylor: historical accounts and poems. Reflect on these selections and choose one that you find interesting and/or relevant today and write a well-developed paragraph (at least 12-15 sentences) about what it is that you find interesting or relevant today. Use strong supporting details to support your claims (opinions/assertions). Can you relate to something in one of the selections on a personal level that you don’t mind sharing with the class? Is there something in the story of the Pilgrims that seems relevant? What about the conflict between Bradford and Morton? Be specific, use good grammar and spelling, and proofread before submitting. This is NOT timed.
At this point, you should have finished reading the biography you have selected. For your final assignment, you will submit a summary and response paper on this reading. Summarize and highlight major points and insights presented in the book as a whole, as well as assess the significance of such insights for today. This paper should be clearly divided and organized into two distinct sections: Section One: Summarizing the major themes/points that the author is making about the subject. (three to four pages) Section Two: Responding to reading and noting any significant connections that the individual has to either past or present events in Church history. (one to two pages) No other sources are required for this paper; however, you should demonstrate a thoughtful interaction with your selected biography. Your paper should be approximately four to six pages in length and writing in APA style, with an introduction, conclusion, and three to four pages of summary and one to two pages of response.
You will write a research paper answering a simple question.In a 1952 ruling, Supreme Court Justice Learned Hand gave a simple definition of the superhero. Hand, in writing of Superman and Wonder man, claimed the superhero at times conceals his strength beneath ordinary clothing but after removing his cloak stands revealed in full panoply in a skintight acrobatic costume. Hand further noted that the superhero uses his sufficient strength as the champion of the oppressed, battling evils and injustice. Hands definition can be simplified to include only four major aspects: a selfless, pro-social mission; powers; costume; and identity. If Alan Moores Watchmen is a story of superheroes, given Learned Hands definition or other definitions of the heroic, who, by the end, is the storys hero?
