Danger Of A Single Story

Religion and gender are two significant social issues in our society  today. Consider these and other “hot topics,” and write a reflective  essay in which you address the “danger of a single story” – the  importance of taking a stand – as well as when it’s time to “let it go.”

In a well-organized and well-supported essay, be sure to provide  specific examples to support your point of view, perhaps your own  experience in your community, at work, or through your own pursuits.  Consider addressing ways in which society has changed over the years –  for better or worse – and suggest areas of improvement… ways in which we  could improve our approach to these and other concepts facing our  society today.

Please note that there is no right or wrong response here, just your  ability to make a point and support it using details and examples from  the readings/viewings, as well as your own experience.

A well-organized essay has a beginning, middle, and an end. The  beginning, or introduction, should include an opening sentence to grab  your reader’s attention. Follow the opening sentence with a brief  background to introduce the topic. The last sentence of the introduction  is a thesis, which states the main point of the essay.

The body (middle) of the essay supports the thesis using points,  details, and examples. The conclusion typically summarizes the main  points of the essay, and/or closes with a lasting impression that  connects the reader to their world.

Be sure to proofread your essay and edit for proper grammar,  punctuation, diction (word choice), and spelling, as errors in sentence  skills will lower a final grade. A grade will be determined based on the  Module 2 Case expectations and the Trident University General Education  rubric for English.

Papers must be double-spaced in Times or Times New Roman font (12 cpi) with standard one-inch margins.

When citing secondary source material within the essay, APA Style citations and a Works Cited page are required. Assignment Expectations
