Essay: Research African Americans and the Military 0 unread of 0 messagesWrite at least 300 words in an essay format and post by Sunday, 11:55 p.m. ET. At least 2 responses of at least 200 words each by Sunday, 11:55 p.m. ET. Full Description

Pick one historical figure or group listed below- each of these people or groups are connected to African American Military History  from 1877 to 2017.

This essay must be at least 300 words. The essay and 2 peer responses (at least 200 words each) are due Sunday, 11:55 p.m. ET. Post your essay as early as possible so students have time to respond. They are both graded with the essay grading rubric. Therefore, do not use your textbook or an encyclopedia. Research in the library or from the course bibliography. You must cite and use at least one academic source. You may research on the Internet. However, if you do, you must, in writing, analyze the academic validity of your website using the CRAP test.

The CRAAP test will help you learn what an academic source is:

  • Currency: How old is it? Is it up-to-date? Or is it a primary source document?
  • Reliability and Relevance: What is the source of the information? Is it relevant to your topic? Who published it? Is it peer-reviewed? Is there a bias?
  • Authority: Who is the author? What are their credentials? What is their field of expertise?
  • Purpose or Point-of-View: What is the author’s intention? Who is it written for (which audience)? Is this a primary source or secondary document? Is it a tertiary document (not allowed)?

For online sources, you must ask addition questions. What is the domain (.edu?)? Who publishes the site, or sponsors it? Is it recent (has it been updated)? Are there advertisements or signs that it is a poorly designed website with all kinds of distractions? Is the site supposed to be an academic one? Or is it someone’s pet project?

Remember that this is a formal essay of at least 300 words and you need an introduction (with a thesis statement), body, and conclusion. Two responses must be at least 200 words each. Respond as many times as you wish. Your best two responses will be graded. You must cite and use at least one academic source. Because students must respond, please post your essay as soon as possible.

Tell the class the history of this person(s) as it relates to African American Military History and remember to cite where you found your information.

Pick wisely!!!..You cannot repeat a person already covered by another student in the initial post or follow up essay. Points will be taken off for repeating material already covered and you must label your forum heading with the key figure’s name or group’s name.

 ***You can label your heading prior to writing your forum response- go back after you label your post and edit it to add the information. This way you can claim the person before someone else does. An example of Forum heading title is: Retired 4-star General Colin Powell.
