Transcript of Outline (engelsk b)

Thesis Statement
Start with a thesis statement that
covers all three texts with regard to the single issue mentioned in the question
Is relatively short (20-40 words)

Example:
The first text argues that Black Americans should for the time being aim low with regard to improving their lot in life, while the second suggests that they should try to get ahead within the wider culture, and the third even advocates that they create their own ideals.
Body
Include three short paragraphs (one for each text) that each follow the PEA model:
The
point
gives the author and title, and sums up each respective text with regard to the single issue mentioned in the question
The
evidence
repeats statements from the text that support the point
The
analysis
explains how the evidence supports the point
Connecting Words
Use connecting words (in every point) to make the outline clearer

These links can include for example, by contrast, moreover, etc.
An Example
The first text argues that Black Americans should for the time being aim low with regard to improving their lot in life, while the second suggests that they should try to get ahead within the wider culture, and the third even advocates that they create their own ideals.

Booker T. Washington argues in Up From Slavery that Black Americans should aim low when seeking to improve their lot in life, taking jobs serving white people and setting aside dreams of intellectual achievement. He blames the lack of success by Black Americans in Southern states to their desire to pursue elective office and academic achievement, and he advocates that they take up lowly jobs instead.

By contrast, in his essay "The Ethics of Living Jim Crow," Richard Wright advocates never giving in to oppressive racism and finding ways of defying the system. He recounts his personal experiences with a society that seeks to hold him down, and he criticizes blacks who give in to racist pressure by lowering their aspirations.

Last, W.E.B. Dubois contends in The Souls of Black Folk that Black Americans should aspire to their own ideals, including intellectual ones. He suggests that the challenge for them is to reconcile two sets of ideals: American ideals, which although they devalue blacks have great value themselves, and the ideals of Black Americans, who have their own genius to contribute to the world.
