Develop an analysis of textual evidence that places it in a wider context

The Writing Task:
Using the excerpt from Sonia Sotomayor’s autobiography, My Beloved World (2013), develop a
well-organized analytical essay that explains how the text reveals the unresolved contradictions
of American history and the persistence of ideologies that threaten the founding promise of equal
opportunity for all (Dr. King’s “promissory note”).
You may use Justice Sotomayor’s Dissent in the Schuette v. BAMN decision for additional
evidence. This document is posted in the Handouts drawer of the DOC 3 webpage:
http://marshall.ucsd.edu/doc/doc3/index.html. (Pay particular attention to pages 1-2, 6-7, 39, 44-
46, 52, and 57-58.)
You also may make reference to relevant DOC texts from earlier in the year, but be sure to
maintain your focus on Sotomayor’s autobiography as excerpted in this quarter’s reader.
