Injustice

Make sure to complete the Week 1 and Week 2 Literary Analysis Tools Modules before completing this assignment.  Part of your grade is based on selection, integration, and citation of quotations.

Post responses to both prompts.  You must post on two different days to earn full credit for participation.

Post 1: Look at Henry David Thoreau’s “Resistance to Civil Government.”  He claims that it is not just our right as Americans, but it is also our duty to defy unjust laws.  This is a very American idea.  Part of the American identity involves intervening in the face of injustice.  Do you agree with this point?  What boundaries should exist to those interventions?  Support your claims using “Resistance to Civil Government” AND one of the other assigned readings from this week.

Criteria:

  • 300 words minimum (excluding quotations and citations)
  • Include two properly and integrated quotations (one from each work) to support your claims.  You may use either direct or paraphrased quotes.  See the Literary Analysis Tools Modules in Weeks 1 and 2 for information about integrating and citation quotes.

Post 2: Respond to a classmate.  Do you agree with your classmate’s perspective?  Why or why not?  Be specific.  What is the most convincing part of your classmate’s post and why?

Criteria:

  • 150 words minimum (excluding quotations and citations)
