Because you are drafting, start each draft at the center of the paragraph – the proof section of the paragraph. Lay down the outside source’s words with a
signal phrase first then introduce the material before it and discuss it after. As you work, edit the source material for fit your proposition/claim in response to
the question. Note: This is labor-intensive writing. It will take you longer than you expect to unify each of the paragraphs around an arguable point of view.
Use the online assignment site for all submissions.
You must use parenthetical citations that distinguishes indirect voices that appear in Young’s text.
No “drop quotes” allowed. Not using a signal phrase will lead to automatic failure of this assignment.
No “Works Cited” page required.
1 – In 200 or so words, using it in a fully developed paragraph long essay, summarize the point that runs throughout chapter 11 about the Johnson
Administration’s demand for optimistic war information. Use a few quick details to prove your point (cite any passage that originates on a specific page), but
remember a summary is an overview – an “about” evaluation. Use your summary to prove a topic sentence about the President’s pressure for positive news
about Vietnam in this chapter?
