Discussion Post


Next week you will record a screencast in which you analyze 3 primary sources to develop an argument about how an aspect of or idea about race has changed (or not changed) over time in the United States. This week you will write the draft of the script for the screencast. Before beginning the draft script, read the secondary sources and look through the primary sources. Then select one primary source from each week in the race unit. (You can use the ones you used in your earlier essays in the unit or select different ones.) As part of your argument, explain how your analysis of the primary sources adds to or challenges the information and ideas about race in at least two of the secondary sources assigned for the unit. Cite all your sources (primary and secondary) using APA style at the end of the draft script. The final screencast will be 5 minutes long, so your script should be 450 words. Post your script to the Draft of the Race Screencast Script discussion board AND submit it using the assignment link in the weekly activity folder. Read two of the draft scripts posted on the discussion board. In each comment, write one sentence explaining something that learned and another sentence explaining something you would like to know more about or that could be clarified. Be respectful and encouraging. You will receive feedback from me on the script you have posted through the assignment link.
