Foregrounded LOs: #thesis, #organization, #evidencebased, #composition, #sourcequality, #professionalism

  • For this assignment, you will write a well-supported, well-organized thesis-driven essay on the following prompt: “National identities are complicated because…” (This prompt should get you thinking about the specifics of how national identities are complicated; the thesis statement does not need to necessarily start out this way.)


  • **Make complex, quality claims **engaging with Appiah’s text and bringing in evidence from your own background.
  • **Use Appiah **as both a model and a text with which to interact as is appropriate.
  • An outline and a reverse outline, keeping in mind the principles of #organization.
  • Research: You should consult with at least 3 sources (at least two of which are academic).
  • Include an annotated bibliography (see below). Format the entire paper correctly.
  • Proofread and revise, revise, revise.
  • DO NOT:
    • Quote big chunks of text: paraphrase others’ arguments when possible; quote minimally.
    • **Collaborate with others – **this is an individual assignment. Even if there are other students from your country, your family and experiences are unique. You can discuss the project with others and ask for feedback, but you must write your own individual paper.
    • Start at the last minute!


  • Be sure to draw attention to your most prominent applications of LOs (especially those mentioned in the “LOs to be graded” section below) by adding footnotes.
    • In the footnote text (at the bottom of the page), provide the hashtag of the LO and at least a 2-3 sentence explanation of your application. Help the professor understand exactly why this constitutes a strong application.
    • Remember: the use of #thesis should be within the paper itself; the footnote is merely there to show how you believe you applied it well in the text. For each LO, footnote what you believe your strongest application of the LO is.
    • Footnote text does not count toward the target length of the assignment, and all applications of the (not just those that are footnoted) will count toward your grade.
    • Including footnotes is an important part of reflecting on your learning. It should be an occasion for #professionalism. Help the professor understand exactly why this constitutes a strong application. For samples of effective annotations, refer to the footnotes that go along with each LO example (in Why/Use of pre-class readings) written in square brackets.
