I need a thesis statement on this subject. I have copied and pasted my previous assignment I handed in, now I need a thesis statement that
will go with this paper. Really only need a couple paragraphs for thesis statement. Below is what was previously submitted:
3-2 Writing Plan Progress
Describe the historical event that
you selected. Why is this event significant?
* The historical event
that I chose to focus on is School Desegregation in Boston. This event is
significant because it was a big factor involving equal opportunity for
education in the U.S. I also believe it is important because of everything
going on today in 2021 involving people of different races. The cry for change
in racial equality. The NEED in change STILL today in 2021.
Describe at least two secondary sources that you could
use to research your historical event. Your sources must be relevant to your
event and must be of an appropriate academic nature. In your description,
consider questions such as: What are the similarities and differences in the
content of your sources? What makes them appropriate and relevant for
investigating your event? What was your thought process when you were searching
for sources? How did you make choices?
first secondary source I can use is Boston Desegregation Busing Crisis. You
could access this article by using the link Boston
desegregation busing crisis – Wikipedia.
secondary source I can use is Timeline: The chain of events that brought
chaos to Boston Schools. You can access this article by using the link Timeline:
The chain of events that brought chaos to Bostons Schools – Spare Change News.
chose these two sources because they go in depth and give us an insight of the
events that happen before, during and after the Boston Desegregation and each
article highlights different yet important events, and this was the reason I
chose these two articles.
Describe at least
two primary sources that you could use to research your historical event. Your
sources must be relevant to your event and must be of an appropriate academic
nature. In your description, consider questions such as: How do these sources
relate to your secondary sources? What do they add to your understanding of the
event? What makes them appropriate and relevant for investigating your event?
*My first primary source that will be used for my
research is Morgan V. Hennigan: Desegregation of Boston Public Schools. Written
by Tina L. Ligon. You can access this article using the link: Morgan
v. Hennigan: Desegregation of Boston Public Schools Rediscovering Black
History (archives.gov). This article gives information and
shows actual documents on keys points during this historical event, the 1954
Brown V. Board of Education ruling and the Morgan V. Hennigan class action
My second Primary Source I will use for my research is
The National Archives Catalog 1976 Boston School Desegregation. You
can access this article by using the link: 1976 Boston School
Desegregation (archives.gov). This source gives multiple documents from
this time and will be useful in
my final project to take readers back to the
time of this event with actual documents.
IV. Based on your review of primary and secondary sources,
develop a research question related to the historical event you selected. In
other words, what would you like to know more about?
research question I would ask is What were short and long-term effects of
the Boston Busing program on the students that were involved?
Identify an audience that would be interested in your
historical event and research question. For example, who would benefit most
from hearing your message?
My * audience that would be interested in my historical event would the youth in
this generation now. This was a big historical event that has really been
forgotten. Up until this class, I was never taught about this event that
happened. After reading it, I was really bothered that no one felt this was
something that needed to be brought up while we were in school learning
history, especially with the issues we are facing today.
Describe how and why you can tailor your message to
your audience, providing specific examples. For example, will your audience
understand historical terminology and principles associated with your event, or
will you need to explain these? How will you communicate effectively with your
highlighting the major events and key factors during this event, could help
tailor my message for my audience. Having a detailed paper will help my
communication effectively with the audience.
