Directions: In a well-developed, multi-paragraph essay that contains an introduction with a thesis sentence, a conclusion, and several cohesive, cited body paragraphs, respond to ONE of the following questions below, your choice! (Your response should be at least 1.5-2 pages long.) You will notice there are several questions within each prompt. You do not have to answer them in order; however, do address all of them as you develop your ideas. Use several quotes from each of the texts to support your answers. Quotes MUST be documented; in other words, put the author and page number in parentheses after each quote in MLA style. Example: In The Distance Between Us, it is said that “We were already living in some kind of Hell in this strange place of broken beauty” (Grande 186). Please note that the quote does not stand alone—use signal phrases, quote sandwiches as you learned (I HOPE) in 1301 and 1302. If you did not, here is a refresher (Links to an external site.). Please feel free to use writing YOU have generated for the discussion board in this class, refine it, edit it under the umbrella of your new thesis.
Define the concept of Chicanx, Chicano, or Chicana. What does this mean to you? To society today at large? Who is a Chicano, Chicana, or Chicanx anyway? Then think about three of the works we have studied in class thus far. How does the term Chicanx fit into these works?
Readings assigned in class will be uploaded.

This essay asks you to identify a rhetorical text for critical analysis and to place your selected text in its historical, political, and cultural context.* First, you should introduce the text, and describe the circumstance of its production and distribution. If you are analyzing a speech, for example, you should describe who delivered it, where and when. If you are looking at a protest action, you should describe what took place, where and when. If you are looking at a printed text, describe who produced it (group or individual) and how and where it was distributed.
Second, you should begin to establish the importance of your study. Why is the text worthy of attention? What is important about it? Also, how does it contribute to the ongoing conversation among rhetorical critics and other scholars of rhetoric? Does it demonstrate clearly a particularly aspect of a rhetorical theory? Does it employ unusual rhetorical strategies or appeals? Or is it interesting largely because of its reach, influence, or endurance? You should also describe the text, and summarize its main ideas, themes, and structure. What are its unique or important substantive and stylistic features? Finally, what will you focus on in analyzing the text? Are you interested in lines of argument? The language used? The ideas it evokes? What is it that draws you to the text? This will be much further developed in the essay where you discuss you approach to analyzing the text, but you want to begin it here.
Third, you should place the speech or text and the issue it addresses into a historical and cultural context and argue for their rhetorical importance. You should look at what the course readings say about what to consider in d the context of a rhetorical text. Look also at the context section of the critical essays we’ve looked at. Though they may not be clearly labelled as such, each essay provides a discussion of the context in which the test is considered. In some instances, context will be primarily historical, in others it will be more political or cultural. The essay on Roosevelt, for example, included historical information about the Great Depression and about how Roosevelt had responded to it, as well as a summary of the conflict between Roosevelt and the Supreme Court (Bisbee). The context for the text depends on your purpose. You as a critic need to decide how much and what kind of context your readers need to fully understand your analysis. Remember that your research should focus on scholarly books and peer-reviewed scholarly journal arguments and primary source accounts of events where appropriate, and make minimal to no use of popular sources (e.g. History.com, popular magazines, personal or commercial websites).

The following are the topic and instructions I need to write an essay about. For background: I work at as a judicial intern in a courthouse and I need to write about how I find diversity and inclusion in my workplace. The following are the instructions from my Professor. It doesn’t need to address every issue just a mix of the following ideas.
1. Essay 3—Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in your Field Placement. As members of a self and peer-policing professional community, lawyers must take responsibility for our actions and our legal institutions in fighting racism and other forms of discrimination. Reflect on your placement’s approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion (“DEI”) and anti-racism. How does your placement’s mission, policies, culture, norms, workforce make-up, or other aspects demonstrate its approach to DEI? Please consider some or all of these questions:
o · Does your workplace have a stated DEI policy or a mission statement that incorporates DEI? Consider the documents provided to you as an extern, as well as information provided to the public (such as on its website). If so, what do you think of the policy?
o · What does it mean to you to be an organization that promotes DEI, an organization that strives to be culturally competent, or an anti-racist organization? Separately from any policy or mission statement, does your organization align with those values?
o · How does the legal work of your field placement align with DEI goals? Bear in mind that it might be connected organically (for example, civil rights work or criminal defense) or in a more attenuated way (for example, medical malpractice or general litigation).
o · Why might it benefit a legal organization to employ a diverse group of people? Reflect on the dimensions of diversity in your workplace. This could include identity, education, perspectives, and any other dimensions.
o · What are areas of DEI strength in your workplace and where could it strengthen its commitment to DEI (areas of growth)? In considering this, you may compare and contrast with other workplaces you have experienced.
o · Is your workplace one that is welcoming of conversations around diversity, equity, and inclusion? How have you seen this communicated or reflected? Is the placement’s approach spoken or unspoken?
