The American Past book
Your essay should be descriptive and analytical in nature and should, at a minimum, answer the following questions:
1. Who is the author and what message are they trying to get across to the reader?
2. What is the focus of the article?
3. What does the article tell you?
4. Is the information in the article still relevant today?
5. Do you agree or disagree with the author’s viewpoint?
Feel free to use other sources (internet, books, periodicals, etc…) to support your conclusions and enhance your essay. You should list any sources used at the end of your essay.
