This essay offers you a little bit more freedom. There are a number of social movements that occurred in the 60s and 70s. Gay and Lesbian Rights, Women’s Rights, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, African Americans (beyond MLK jr). (I think I hit all of the groups). Your job will be to pick 2 of these and write a compare and contrast argumentative research paper. Compare and Contrast papers are a bit difficult to write, but if you stick to a basic formula… it is a snap! By far the easiest way to write this paper is to alternate paragraphs. Paragraph 1 about 1 point of subject A and paragraph 2 about the same point about subject B. I would pick 3 areas to compare and contrast. It is up to you to decide what you want to talk about. Introduction: Briefly discuss any parallels or ways in which your two topics are alike or unlike–but don’t give away all of your details…this is just to entice the reader. Identify any themes that are present. (HINT: 60s and 70s were all about change–give some context or background). This section introduces your topic and your thesis statement. A thesis is a direct statement that tells the reader what you are going to EXACTLY uncover in your essay. Body: Discover 3 items to compare and contrast about your topics. This is your research. This should be about 5 paragraphs. Be sure sure to include SPECIFIC examples, names, etc…. really get into it and tell me about it. IV. CONCLUSION: Your conclusion needs to include the following: A restatement of your thesis and summarize your main points. In your own words, tell me what you think the deeper meaning is behind the movements. Then, tell me if: the situation was resolved, evolving, ongoing etc. THEN, tell me if there are any solutions? V.
