ANSWER BOTH QUESTIONS
1. Compare gender roles in Haiti and either one English-speaking Caribbean island or one Spanish-speaking Caribbean island. (CUBA is what I am comparing to HAITI)
2. Compare colonial rule in two distinct Caribbean islands of your choice. ( BARBADOS & CUBA)
To compare means to evaluate the similarities and the differences between two entities –in this case, between two societies. Therefore, you must say, explain, and evidence why two different countries are different and/or similar on a specific topic (gender roles, and colonial rule).
For these two questions, you will ONLY use the course material—that is, reading assignments and class lectures.
For this essay, you will use all the reading assignments we have used in class as well as class discussions (see below).
No wikipedia. Do not use other sources, especially not “Internet sources,” unless it comes from scholarly journals and scholarly books available through the Healey Library website –and still, the class assignments are enough for you to write this essay.
Organization of your paper:
Your paper will contain an introduction, at least three sections, and a conclusion. You introduction should include the subject, your thesis, and, importantly, the structure of your paper –that is, the introduction should clearly say how many sections and subsections the paper contains and what they discuss.
1) Write clearly.
2) Mention your sources for each quote or argument or idea you make a reference to (name of the author, title of the book, page number, either in footnote or in parenthesis in the text). Quotes should not make more than 20% of the total length of your answer.
3) Support your answers with relevant arguments and examples from class materials.
4) Demonstrate critical reading, critical thinking, synthesized thinking (as I explain in class).
5) Moral judgments (what is right, what is wrong) are no substitute for critical thinking.
You should always answer questions as scholars. That means that you must be scientific, logical, methodical, explicit, didactic, and exhaustive. That means that you must:
-avoid general, vague statements
-avoid moral judgments and moralizing statements
-avoid expression of collective guilt
-avoid emotional statements
-avoid colloquial expressions
-stay on target and avoid digressions (always keep the question(s) in mind).
You must demonstrate critical reading and critical thinking. If you assert something, you must back it up with evidences. You cannot write a merely descriptive, factual paper. You must construct and support arguments with relevant examples from all chosen texts. Your answer should be supported by arguments and clear, specific references (including page number). Also, you cannot “hide” behind quotations. Quotations must only illustrate your arguments.
