Compare and contrast the gentrification of Clybourne Park, as it is presented in the play Clybourne Park,.with gentrification either in Santa Barbara, or in your hometown. (You need to know the area well.)3. In the 1950s, institutional racism (discrimination in housing, employment, education, government services, etc.) played a large role in denying African-Americans their civil rights. In the 2000s, gentrification has become a new form of institutional racism that once again threatens to deny African-.Americans equal opportunity. Write an essay that focuses on the ways that gentrification in Clybourne Park represents a version of the institutional racism found in A Raisin in the Sun.4. Compare and contrast the two acts of Clybourne Park. How has racism changed over the past 50 years? In what ways does it still persist? Be specific. Focus on particular characters, speeches, actions, props (including the set), etc.5. Write an essay that traces all the connections between A Raisin in the Sun and Clybourne Park. Youll probably want to start with characters (and their relatives).that the plays have in common, but then dig deeper into the real situation of institutionalized racism in Chicagos Clybourne Park area and how it has changed over the years.6. All the families in A Raisin in the Sun and Clybourne Park seem to be seeking some version of the American Dream. Develop a definition of the American Dream, then apply it to the two plays as you investigate 1) which characters are coming closest to achieving that dream, 2) which characters are failing, and 3) why one group is more successful than the other..You must use at least 10, but no more than 15, critical/secondary sources. Correctly document your citations using MLA style documentation and include a separate Works Cited page. Your sources will probably come from multiple academic fields, but each author must be an authority in her/his field.Q. Is it okay for my research paper to have an opinion?A. Absolutely! I dont know how youll be able to write it without having an opinion. In fact, even if your research question suggests that you ought to look at both sides of an issue, Id like you to clearly choose one side or the other in your thesis and argue toward that point throughout your essay..*Q. Do I need to cite paraphrases as well as direct quotations?A. Yes. Even summaries need to be cited. When in doubt, cite your source. Its much better to err on the side of being too careful than to receive a 0 and be reported to the academic Dean for plagiarism. And its usually better to use short direct quotations than paraphrases..*Q. If Im not sure about the publisher, is it okay, just to put N.p.?A. Probably not. All semester long, Ive been seeing, N.p., n.d in Works Cited pages. Granted, Web pages sometimes do not have a publication date, but they nearly always have a publisher. Just look at the Web address, or the header at the top of the page..And if you cant tell you who publisher is because youre on a blog or a sketchy commercial site, then you probably dont want to use the source anyway.*Q. Are you really going to check every source I use?A. Yep. Pretend youre a reporter and Im your editor. Were about to publish a big story, and we want to make sure every source we have is credible in case our news organization is sued. Are you willing to stand behind every source you cite?.Are you willing to risk your job for some nitwit on a blog or a paper mill or helium or about.com? When in doubt, strike it out, and find something better. One-third of your grade for this assignment is allotted to Research and Documentation. If you do a lousy job in this area, youre going to get a lousy grade.*Q. Anything else?A. Make sure you look carefully at the rubric before you turn in your research paper. Does your essay always follow the assignment? Are the thesis and topic sentences exceptionally clear, narrow and focused?.Is the supporting evidence plentiful and expertly selected? Have you revised, edited and proofread the paper many times so that it reads smoothly and contains no careless errors?*Q. Its a research paper, so it should mostly just be made of my sources, right?A. Wrong. Your sources are there to support your own ideas, not to take over the essay.*Q. Its a research paper, so it should be boring, right?.A. Wrong! If its boring to you, imagine how much more boring it will be to me. Give us both a reason to enjoy reading the essay.*Q. Im reading from an ebook I downloaded on my tablet. How do I cite it?A. The answer to your question is right here..
