Second Wave Feminism & The Equal Rights Amendment

a response to one or multiple texts. A historical reaction (or response) paper differs from the formal review primarily in that it can written in the first person. Unlike in more formal

the use of phrases like ″I thought,″ and ″I believe″ is acceptable in a response paper. You′ll still have a thesis and will need to back up your opinion with evidence from the work, but this type of paper spotlights your individual reaction as a reader or viewer. Assignment: Select a specific theme or topic that we have discussed in class. Supplement this with a class reading (s). Incorporating more than one class reading is acceptable. It is also acceptable to cite a scholarly source not assigned. We will discuss in class what denotes a scholarly work. (We must also talk privately if you choose to cite an outside source). Basing your reaction paper topic on a podcast or video we have used in class is also acceptable but must be supplemented with a written source. The length of the reaction paper should be roughly 3 pages (12-point Times New Roman font. Double Spaced). Please apply the four basic standards of effective writing (unity, support, coherence, and clear, error-free sentences) when writing the paper. Citation: resources/chicago-style-citation-for-historians/ Historians most commonly use Chicago’s note-style citation, based in the Chicago Manual of Style, now in its 17th ed. (U of Chicago, 2017). Notes (please use footnotes) are the single most flexible and broadly applicable form of documentation available to academic writers. This format is not typically used by the social or physical sciences, because their sources tend to be recent and specific in genre. Historians, on the other hand, work with every kind of human artifact and writing, across thousands of years. As such, MLA, APA, and Chicago Author-Date styles cannot meet our needs. Chicago note-style citation has two parts: footnotes (or endnotes), and a bibliography. Your paper must:  Provide an informative (but short) summary of the material and the historical context of your topic.  An explanation as to why this topic (era, event, piece of legislation, etc..,) is significant. To put it another way, what does it show us about the past? Or what does it tell us about the present?  Support any general points you make or attitudes you express with specific reasons and details. Statements such as ″I agree with many ideas in this article″ or ″I found the book very interesting″ are meaningless without specific evidence that shows why you feel as you do. Look at the sample report closely to see how the main point or topic sentence of each paragraph is developed by specific supporting evidence.  Present an argument! In sum, this assignment is to encourage you to articulate opinions and perspectives on important historical quandaries. A clear and concise argument is needed. Your paper may include:  How is the material related to your life, experiences, feelings, ideas? For instance, what emotions did work arouse in you?  How does this topic/scholarly work change (or reaffirm) your views on American history?Lack of instructions
