Read D.L. McGuire, At the Dark End of the Street: Black Women, Rape, and Resistance ch. 4 pages 135-159 then prepare a review using the instructions listed below.
Reading Reviews Instructions
Read the assigned chapter/article/document/etc. and take notes while reading. After reading and taking notes on the assigned text prepare a 450 to 600 word review (i.e. summary) that addresses all of the instructions listed below. The completed reading review should:
State the main point of the reading (i.e. chapter, book excerpt, article, etc.) in your own words Your response to this section of the review should reflect the main idea(s)/thesis/main claim that the author is communicating, or the central idea/point that the author is arguing/ trying to prove.
Identify and explain three significant facts that are related to the main point(s) of the reading. Your response to this part of the review should consider the evidence that the author uses to proves their point. Select three pieces of evidence (or concepts/historical events/names of organizations/people, etc.) explain why they support the author’s main point and/or are relevant to the main point. For example, if you read a chapter and the author’s main point is to show that the brutality of slavery on cotton plantations was directly connected to economic productivity, then ask yourself, “What kinds of evidence does the author use to support her point?” You should be able to find at least three pieces of evidence in the reading that answers the question. For example, the author might prove her main point using the testimony of slave owners, runaway slaves, as well as Southern and Northern businessmen. You would identify three of these in your reading review and explain how each one is relevant to the author’s main point.
Make a footnote citation in Chicago format to reference the page number in the text where you cited the information used in section B. Each reading review must include two separate footnote citations. For more information on how to prepare footnotes see the links below..
Poses two open-ended questions about the subject matter of the reading based on its main point(s)? Your questions can be addressed to the author, or your questions can be addressed to the community of scholars. Do your best to think of open-ended (i.e. discussion type) questions that do not necessarily have one specific answer but reflect on the broader implications, meanings, and/or consequences of the information contained in the text.
Submit the completed assignment by the required date with your name, class, date, and complete title of the reading (author’s name, book title, chapter number, etc.) at the top of the first page (single spaced).
