Transcript of Sample ARP Documents
The rev of an engine roars and stops as abruptly as it started. “I will tell you God’s truth,” says a voice with a still unidentified face. Immediately, the first beat of the bass line of a song titled “No Church in the Wild” begins to play, and the face of Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Jay Gatsby is shown right after as he finishes his line directed toward Tobey Maguire’s character Nick Carraway. The dialogue exchange and changing of scenes all occurs within the first five seconds of the trailer for The Great Gatsby. In New York in the 1920s, Jay Gatsby lives an extraordinary life in the fast lane—literally. However, is his extraordinary life enough? It seems as though money leaves Gatsby feeling empty and shallow.
Whether it is a fictional character in the Roaring Twenties or a human who is alive in 2014, people are able to find happiness in various ways, but extreme wealth is not typically one of those ways.
On one end of the spectrum of socioeconomic classes in agriculture is the rich businessman, portrayed by Rogers as a large man holding a bag of money representing the big business in the agricultural world. The man shown is very large and powerful, with a huge grinning smile, and wearing nice clothes.
(Work with Primary Source) As corporations have begun to take over farming, there has been a huge increase in the concentration of agriculture. (Claim) For example, in 1995 the top 10 seed companies controlled 37% of commercial seed sales (Shand 11). Fast forward to 2009 and the top 10 companies now account for 73% of sales (11). The huge increase in concentration that has occurred in the seed market has been mirrored by every other agricultural market to the point where small farmers now control just a small share of the market as a whole. This concentration stymies the industry because as Shand says the big companies “are all about industry profits, not diversity, sustainability or food security” (14). (Evidence) Profit driven agriculture therefore ultimately ends up hurting the consumers, as large corporations offer less choices and care less about long term success. The influx of concentration also drives small farmers out of business because corporations can make profit on small margins because they are able to sell in huge quantities. However, small farmers need to sell at higher margins because they are unable to sell as much. This becomes a lose-lose situation for small farmers: decrease prices to be competitive or keep higher prices and run the risk of not selling the product. Either way, the small farmer ultimately ends up losing. (Linking Claims to Evidence
Sample Body Paragraph with Primary Source Analysis, Claim, Evidence, and Linking Claim and Evidence
Make sure your topic is narrow and focused
Establish a strong thesis (what message do you want to send about your topic?)
Make claims and support with evidence
You may (but don't have to) incorporate 1 additional primary source
Analyze but not with the same amount of page time as you did with your initial primary source.
Possibly cut some of your PSA analysis to make room.
Add secondary source information (2-4 additional sources) to your analysis
Show how your information supports your analysis (link and connect your info)
Incorporate Works Cited page (cite primary and secondary sources)
Tips for Working on ARP
Claim: an assertion or idea that you believe the evidence supports
Your thesis is your governing claim
Authors can make multiple claims (have several arguments or points) within a given essay
Example: The party last night was great. or Parents screw up their children.
Evidence: proof, example to help support a claim
Claim—Abraham Lincoln was our greatest president.
Evidence—He freed the slaves with the Emancipation Proclamation and kept the country united through the Civil War. He was also a noted orator.
First establish claim, then provide evidence
Important not to make unsubstantiated claims or to make a claim that doesn’t match up with the evidence
Evidence does not speak for itself. You must interpret/link the claim to the evidence with your own ideas/connections
Ex. The party was great—no alcohol was served.
The party was horrible—no alcohol was served.
Linking: By not serving alcohol, guests were able to have memorable conversations and play games.
