Essay 3 HIS 1995: Nature and Societal Transitions Due through Canvas by 11:59 P.M. on Wednesday, April 17 Please write a three-page paper on the following topic: Describe the range of political responses to the industrial revolution, including a) defenses of the new social system (e.g. Harriet Martineau and other utilitarian political economists), b) calls for reform of the system (e.g. Dickens in his roles as author and editor), and c) calls for the revolutionary overthrow of the system (e.g. Marx and Engels). Can you explain why each side adopted the view that it did? The paper is due Wednesday, April 17 through Canvas. Please do not email papers or turn them in late. Your paper must be written in the following format: 1) The paper must be typed, double-spaced, with 12 font type and standard margins. It must not exceed the length requirement by more than a page. If the paper is less than two pages or more than four pages (not counting the bibliography or cover sheet), your grade will be lowered one grade level (e.g. from B to B-). 2) You will need to underline your thesis sentence and restatement in the introduction and conclusion, as well as the key sentence of the remaining paragraphs. Failure to do so will result in your grade being lowered one grade level. 3) You will need to provide a cover sheet including your name, a title for the paper, your thesis statement, and the key sentences you have underlined in the body of the paper. Failure to do so will result in your grade being lowered one grade level. 4) Please include footnotes and bibliography in the humanities style of the Chicago reference style. Inconsistent use of the Chicago style will result in a one grade penalty (e.g. from A to A-). For significant errors in using this style, a two grade penalty will apply (e.g. from A to B+). Paragraphs lacking either footnotes or bibliography will be penalized three grades (e.g. from A to B). Your paper will be evaluated based upon consideration of the strength of the following: thesis, organization, evidence, and response to critics. You will be assigned a preliminary grade of A, B, C, D, or F based upon a reading of your cover page. Your entire paper will be read to confirm or change this preliminary grade. Your grade will also take into account any grade penalties for incorrect format given above. The following ten steps are designed to help you construct a well-written paper that meets the accepted conventions of academic writing. 1) Write an argumentative essay. Academic essays make an argument designed to convince a specific audience. Your goal is to develop your own analysis of this question, though it will build upon the theoretical and historiographical perspectives found in the readings and the historical data found there. You will also want to defend your interpretation. A scholarly argument is an exercise in persuasion: you don’t just want to state an opinion, but convince your (hypothetical) reader that your interpretation is correct. While I will read the papers in order to grade them, you don’t want to address the paper just to me, but to a broader educated audience. Don’t assume that your reader is familiar with the facts discussed in the class (so your hypothetical audience would include your friends and students outside the course). At the same time, imagine that some within your audience are familiar with course materials (other students in this class) and may hold different interpretations. Consequently, your essay should be informative and persuasive. 2) Write an effective introduction. You should give an introduction to the paper in the first paragraph. Give some general information about your topic to provide some context for what you are talking about, what problem you are trying to solve, and why it is important. The paragraph should lead naturally to your thesis statement at the end of the paragraph. 3) Write a strong thesis statement. A thesis states succinctly your position on the topic and the reasons for it. You can think of this as having two parts, a viewpoint and an argument, connected by the word “because” or the equivalent. A thesis should encapsulate your argument in a succinct, memorable way. The thesis should set up expectations in your readers about what you will demonstrate in the remainder of the paper. 4) Organize around key sentences. Your paper should be organized to support your thesis. When you are gathering ideas and evidence to support your thesis, group similar ideas and evidence together. Throw out weak or irrelevant evidence and focus your writing to support the overall argument. Make sure that each paragraph has a succinct key sentence that states the topic of the paragraph. Well-written essays are organized around paragraphs with key sentences that make one point. Key sentences come early in the paragraph—either the first sentence or a sentence following transitional discussion linking the paragraph to the previous paragraph. Key sentences orient you to what is coming and should allow you to anticipate what the rest of the paragraph will cover. They announce the topic of the paragraph without trying to prove anything. If the rest of the paragraph does not match the topic stated in the key sentence, there is a problem. Likewise, if the key sentence refers to issues going beyond what is covered in the rest of the paragraph, then it is too broad. Well-written paragraphs subordinate the discussion to the topic in the key sentence. They arrange the evidence in a way suitable for the writer’s purpose, not according to the layout of the source readings. This means that you should not just cover the same information in the same way and in the same order as the sources you draw upon. Each sentence should make a logically distinct point about your topic and together those sentences should contribute to a succinct, but comprehensive understanding of the topic. This means that you will be providing a logical organization of this information and the footnotes you give for individual sentences may draw upon a number of different passages in the reading. 5) Use your thesis and key sentences as an outline. By taking your thesis statement and the key sentences for all the paragraphs in your paper out and placing them in a cover sheet, you will be constructing an outline that reveals the organization of your paper. Please use this outline to consider whether your paper is well organized or not and if it omits anything crucial to your argument. Please also check that every key sentence is relevant to establishing your thesis. If it is not, remove the corresponding paragraph from your paper and rewrite. It is virtually impossible to write a strong essay without significantly revising your paper.
