Students are responsible for writing a response paper at the end of each week. The paper’s topic will draw from the readings assigned for that week. The paper’s question (or set of questions) will build off the weekly discussion response. The purpose of the weekly response paper is for students to demonstrate that they have completed the assigned readings and can critically apply the material to larger questions of history and political economy. The paper should be four-to-five pages and follow the basic format of: introduction, body, conclusion, and footnotes that follow the Chicago-style format (do not cite in the body of the text). All papers should contain the student’s own, individual voice that is supported with evidence and facts drawn from the assigned readings. Other secondary sources used to complement or strengthen your argument are acceptable, however Wikipedia entries and blog posts are not acceptable as sources.
Here is the question for weekly discussion response:
Peter Winn’s chapter provides us with an overview of the struggles waged by indigenous communities in Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Guatemala after World War II. Search and find an article on the country of your choosing (Ecuador, Bolivia, etc.) that gives us more details and information about the movements covered in Winn’s overview. Briefly summarize the article/essay and address its importance to our overall understanding this recent history in the Andes and Central America. I recommend finding a source from: Astor, World Cat, or Google Scholar. You are not limited to these websites but articles published on blog sites, message boards, or entries from Wikipedia are not suitable for this assignment and will not be accepted.
I will email you the attachments.
