A contract is...
A good intro includes:

2) Context
3) Conflict
4) Thesis
An agreement made by two or more parties, usually establishing the rules for an exchange of goods, services, or information.
When you write an introduction to an essay, you are creating a contract with your reader!
Make it clear that your topic is important or interesting.
Explain where the topic or texts come from (historical or cultural information).
Explain what people do not understand, or what problem most people might have with the topic or texts.
Tell your reader what you will prove, and how you will prove it.
Intro Quick Check:
1) What is this essay going to be about?
2) Why should I care about this topic?
3) How will reading this essay help me?
4) How will the author accomplish this task?
Black - Copy these
Blue - Paraphrase
Red - Do not copy directly
What the colors mean:

Unit 2 Debate / Task 2 Prompt
Should the United States continue its celebration of the Columbus Day holiday?
Students will debate this question on Thursday, the notes for this debate will be the basis for your essay that is due next Monday.
Debate Format: Seminar-style discussion. Students must have evidence ready to support both sides of this topic.
Counter Arguments
People will not listen to you if they think you are ignoring their point of view. A counter argument helps you to turn a skeptic into a supporter...
You: I had an interview so I didn't go to detention.

Dean: So you admit you skipped detention. Now you have double time.
One might argue that...





You: I understand that I had detention on Friday, but I had an interview for a scholarship. I know that it is important for me to be responsible for my choices, but I couldn't reschedule the interview and it was more important for me to be there.

Dean: OK, I get it, next time tell us before detention so that we can reschedule.
Louise's friendship with Carrie has a positive impact on her self-image.
Such an argument might be supported by Carrie's attempt's to get Louise to lose weight, saying "I want you to be loved the way that I love you."
this argument mistakes Carrie's good intentions with a positive change in Louise's life.
Despite the fact that Carrie wanted Louise to be happy, Louise later remembers this time as "the worst year of her life."

If Carrie truly had a positive impact on Louise's self-image, Louise would remember this as a time of positive struggle. Instead, she implies that it was a mistake to follow Carrie's advice. As a result, it is inaccurate to argue that Carrie's support truly had a positive impact on Louise's self-image.
Discussion Expectations:
Inner Circle:
- Find evidence to explain each text/argument
- Identify and evaluate possible counter-arguments

Outer Circle:

Quote that describes it
What it might mean
Faith's pink ribbons
Faith stuck her head out of the doorway, "...letting the wind play with the pink ribbons of her cap."
"...something fluttered lightly down through the air and caught on the branch of a tree. The young man seized it, and beheld a pink ribbon.
'My Faith is gone!' cried he..."



When it falls from the sky...
1) The main idea (thesis) of the document
2) At least two important, direct quotes
3) Explain how these quotes relate to the main idea

From Columbus' Journals - October 14th
"...whenever your Highness may command, all of them can be taken to Castile or held captive in this same island; because with 50 men all of them could be held in subjection and can be made to do whatever one might wish"
Columbus went to the New World for wealth, not to discover new lands. He didn't find any gold, so he decided to take slaves with him. This shows that instead of being a brave adventurer, he was actually a cruel slave master
He summarizes the writings of Bartolome de las Casas – “…over the last forty years, led to the unjust and totally unwarranted deaths of more than twelve million souls, women and children among them.” These deaths were “caused by Christians resorting to torture, wholesale slaughter, and the harshest and most iniquitous and brutal slavery”.
Bergreen – From The Four Voyages
Bergreen shows that it was not simply greedy behavior, but also evil and inhuman treatment. The Spanish did not need to torture and kill children, but they did when they got to the New World. This is one of the things that people unintentionally celebrate when they celebrate Columbus Day.
Counter-Argument: Berliner, "The Columbus Day Controversy"
Columbus discovered America “in every important respect… Columbus brought America to the attention of the civilized world, i.e., to the growing, scientific civilizations of Western Europe. The result, ultimately, was the United States of America."
Some might argue that we should celebrate Columbus for bringing the advances of European civilization to the New World. While he is right that this did lead to the eventual founding of the USA, it is inaccurate to call the murder of millions bringing "civilization" to the New World. If he says that we are celebrating the founding of the USA, we should celebrate that, not Columbus, who did things that our constitution defines as illegal and immoral.
BP1 - Columbus went to the New World because of greed, not for the adventure that people think they are celebrating.
BP2 - If you celebrate Columbus, you are celebrating his actions in the New World, including the murder of millions of natives.
BP1 - Some argue that Columbus day represents the westernization of the New World, but this is a misleading and incorrect view.
A close examination of Columbus' journals and actions suggests that it would be more appropriate to use this holiday to remember the people whose lives were destroyed by the arrival of Columbus in the Americas.
The Prompt: Should we celebrate Columbus Day?
The Conflict: (the problem we are trying to solve)
People disagree about whether we should celebrate Columbus Day.

Sample Notes: "Sweat"
Summary: "Sweat" is a story about a woman who struggles to live with her abusive husband. She is eventually free of him when his plan to scare her with a snake backfires.
Q1 (pg 1) [after he tells her not to do laundry for white people] "He picked up the whip and glared down at her. Delia went on with her work."
Q2 (pg 7) [after he brings the snake into the house] "Ah hates you, Sykes," she said calmly... "Lay 'roun' wid dat 'oman all yuh wants tuh, but gwan 'way fum me an' mah house."
Q3 (pg 9) [after the snake bit him instead of her] "She saw him on his hands and knees as soon as she reached the door... inside she knew the cold river was creeping up and up to extinguish that eye which must know by now that she knew."
She is submissive, she just tries to ignore the problem. The whip could represent his power and violence.
She stands up for herself. Being calm shows how she is in control, and she calls it her house.
He is now submissive, on his knees. She has the power now. She leaves him to die knowing that she would not help him.
