Question:

Identify and analyze the purpose of a strong thesis statement in an essay.

Rachel M.
Answer:

A strong thesis statement is an original claim or argument made at the beginning of an essay. A thesis statement should be similar to the following format: "This is the unique argument, and these 2-5 reasons support the argument." A strong thesis statement is important in an essay because it proves the content and outside knowledge of the writer. It also allows the writer to communicate an original view of a topic, and allows the author to use researched evidence and personal analysis to argue or prove this point. The 2-5 reasons that support the statement in a strong thesis set up the body paragraphs of the essay and create an organized, clear, and professional text.

Question:

Critique the methods and goals of civil rights leaders such as W.E.B. DuBois and Booker T. Washington. Compare and contrast their ideas and goals.

Rachel M.
Answer:

W.E.B. DuBois and Booker T. Washington had varying goals and methods in their fight for Civil Rights for African Americans in the 19th century. W.E.B. DuBois argued for leadership of the Civil Rights Movement by the"Talented Tenth," or the top ten percent of African American intellectuals at the time. DuBois was determined to achieve equality for all African Americans immediately, and promoted higher education as a way to thwart discrimination and oppression. Booker T. Washington, in contrast, spoke vehemently in support of African Americans obtaining useful agricultural and trade skills to become self-reliant as a people group. He argued that once these skills were cultivated, African Americans would slowly earn respect from the white community and eventually earn equality in latter years. Though DuBois sought equality immediately and Washington promoted a slower road to equal rights, both men were determined to earn the same outcome: equal rights and opportunities for all Americans.
