Comparison of the perspectives of the Lost Boys of Sudan with the Typical Americanperspectives on certain political concepts.
For the term paper, you will rely primarily on the book by the Lost Boys of Sudan, They Poured Fire on Us from the Sky.I strongly suggest reading the book.
Your assignment is to compare the Typical Americanunderstanding of certain political concepts with how you believe the Lost Boys understand those same concepts. Those concepts include: 1) the purpose of government 2) human nature 3) the role/purpose of interest groups and international organizations 4) freedom 5) America 6) role of women 7) education 8) war You should select five (5) of the above-listed concepts to discuss. If you wish to discuss another concept not on the list, get permission from me first or you will not receive credit for that concept.
Use examples from the book to clarify/defend your points about the Sudanese perspectives, and evidence from other researched sources to defend your arguments about the Typical Americanperspectives. You are essentially writing a persuasive paper, trying to convince me that you are successfully identifying and explaining each sides perspectives. When using references, either direct quotes or paraphrased material, a full citation of the source is required. You MUST provide supporting evidence for EACH AND EVERY concept and perspective in the paper. Also, be sure to list all of the sources you used in your paper in a works cited page at the end of your paper. You must cite your sources using Turabian, APA or MLA formats. I highly recommend using the Citation Machine website or EasyCites website that is on the Web Links page to help with this. Your paper should be 5-7 pages in length, typed and double-spaced. Use normal fonts (10-12) and margins, and number your pages. Keep your heading simple and single-spaced.
I grade both content and style, so be sure that both are quality work. Sixty percent of your grade will be on content, and forty percent will be based on style (spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, proper essay structure, proper professional academic language, essay flow, etc). If you do not use Microsoft Word, please be sure to save your file as a .rtf file, or I will not be able to open it.
