The TULSA RACE RIOT Paper

 

ENGLISH IV

 

You are going to be writing a paper over the TULSA RACE RIOT.  It will be a FACT based paper.  You are not to use OPINION until the end of your paper.  When you do use OPINION, you will need to back it up with some FACTS.  I DO NOT WANT A PAPER THAT IS FILLED WITH:  “I think” – “In my opinion” – “Everyone will agree with me”.  These are opinion statements.

 

DO LIST:

 

1.  A 3 page paper

2.  Use images related to the Tulsa race riot and to racism

3.  Contains no less than SIX pieces of quoted material that you have footnoted

4.  A title page

5.  You will use information from the links that I give you below.  Yes, you can find more information if you desire.

 

HOW I WILL GRADE THE PAPER:

 

  • 3 pages (if they are done well) will get you an “A”
  • If you turn in the paper late, I will reduce your grade by 50 points for each day late.
  • If you do not follow directions, I will deduct 100 points from you score
