When the Jesuit Pierre de Goville visits the incarcerated John Hu, he asks Hu if there is anything he wants to know. Hu replies with a simple question: “Why have I been locked up?” Answer Hu’s question in a 1000 word paper that includes an argument, a counter-argument, and at least two quotations from the text. You do not need to do any outside research for this paper, although you can use Ringrose and Po-Chia Hsia (the field trip reading) for background information. Important Note: In addition to quotations, this paper REQUIRES a counter-argument. A counter-argument is a possible objection to your argument that you introduce, explain, and respond to—it is like a conversation with a reader whose viewpoint differs from yours. Counter-arguments enhance your credibility as a writer because they show your awareness of a range of interpretations and your willingness to engage these. For some helpful information on using counter-arguments, see the Blackboard file “Planting a Naysayer in Your Text.” Getting Started: You can write this paper many different ways. However, if you are having difficulty, the following outline might be helpful. Introduction: Tell your reader the story of John Hu—summarize Jonathan Spence’s The Question of Hu. If you want, you can also use Ringrose and Po-Chia Hsia to tell your reader about the big picture. Conclude with a clear thesis statement that explicitly answers Hu’s question. Paragraphs 1 and 2: Use these paragraphs to introduce the evidence for your explanation of Hu’s incarceration. Be sure to use lots of examples—describe what people said or did and how this illustrates your claim. This is good place to use quotations from individuals. Paragraph 3: This is where you make your counter-argument. Start by introducing an objection to your explanation—if you want, you can use one of the templates in the online file. And be honest! If there is a weakness in your argument, you might as well address it. Once you have introduced your objection, respond to it as persuasively as you can. What makes you think you are right, despite this possible criticism? Conclusion: Here is where you re-present your argument in light of your discussion. Give us some food for thought. readings: -r.po-chia hsia, the world of catholic renewal -david r. ringrose, expansion and global interaction
