3 option essay ideology author

Background:

We all found our lives on a set of assumptions. Though we aren’t always conscious of these foundational beliefs, they undergird all that we do. This year we have looked at eight of these concepts, both in the authors we’ve studied and our own lives. At the most basic level, they define who we are.

Task:

Take one of the eight concepts listed above and create a paper that does the following three things:

  1. Define the concept and delineates its value or significance. Why does this ideology matter? What ramifications does it hold?
  2. Discuss several of the approaches to the issue that we’ve seen this year with the authors we’ve studied. Give specific examples, at least one author from each era and at least two quotes per era.
  3. Describe your own position on the concept. What conclusion have you come to and why? Support your opinions with logic and any relevant evidence.

Tips:

  • Don’t do the obvious.
  • Venture into the unknown with this paper. You’ll be glad that you forced yourself to think hard.
  • I don’t expect you to have your views all figured out; (you’re just juniors in high school), but thoughtlessness is inexcusable.

Requirements:

  • Three pages minimum
  • Single-spaced
  • Mechanical perfection
  • Intellectual and emotional honesty
  • Work Cited required (may be on a third page)
  • Two quotes per “era” of our curriculum: Puritan, Colonial, Romantic, Realist, Modern
  • 75 points
