The reading, “What does the 4th of July mean to the African American,” is a speech by Frederick Douglass that was delivered at a celebration of American Independence. It was originally titled, “What to the Slave is Fourth of July?”
Your assignment is to do a Cornell Note on Douglass’s speech. All the same rules apply, however there is a slight twist in the summary section. In your summary section, write about how the arguments presented by Douglass interact with at least one of the other materials for this week. In essence you are now using the summary section to put sources into dialog with each other WITHIN the assignment itself. Previously, you were given extra credit for doing this advanced move. There will not be extra credit for in this assignment as you have been building up to how to do the perfect Cornell note. To repeat, do a Cornell Note on Douglass’s speech as you would do normally. Rather than putting it in dialogue with other class materials and getting EXTRA credit, the summary section asks you to summarize Douglass in relation to another source from the week. To do it correctly and get full points: the argument and notes section should follow the TA’s instructions over the various weeks. AND in a summary of 300-500 words, discuss Douglass in relationship to one other source for THIS week.
And remember, provide a citation when you are quoting directly from one of the sources. You should not have to consult any other materials for this assignment. Remember, in my message to the class, I wrote that History Toolkit #2 should include:
– The main argument (placed in the left hand column).
– At least 3 major supporting claims/ideas/questions (placed in the left hand column).
– At least 9 pieces of evidence (placed in the right hand column).
– A summary of at least 300 words.
