For the final exam, students will generate a response. This final exam response asks students to think critically about the course reading material to make deliberate decisions when selecting course chapters. The goal is to develop a 3 paragraph response using two chapters to explain how the theme manifests and its significance. Avoid summary ("telling" what happens in the chapter) and strive for analysis (what does the historical moment reveal about your chosen theme?). Take the time to carefully select chapters, develop sound ideas, and carefully proofread before submitting. 1. Select 1 of the chosen themes below. Find an online dictionary definition to use in the Introduction. a. Courage b. Violence C. Resistance d. Community e. Geography Identity (group) g. Freedom h. Struggle Heritage 2. Next, select 2 chapters from the course readings to use as evidence to support your analysis. (Return to the course schedule for links to course readings) a. Once you identify 2 chapters from the course readings, stop to make sure there are two examples of your chosen theme to use as evidence to support your ideas. 3. Introductory paragraph a. In the opening paragraph, work to name and define the theme. Why is this theme important? What role does this theme play in African American History? 4. Paragraph 2 a. Choose 2nd chapter reading b. In this paragraph, use 2 examples (quotes) from the chapter to explain how the theme functions in this chapter.
