3- Here, I will include some additional instructions for this assignment written by my professor. The instructions will be written below.
Additional Instructions: for this paper, you are asked to argue a position* on the bilingual education debate and support it using our readings and the media provided. Now this means that you can choose a “side”, either for or against bilingual education, or you can argue a position somewhere in between that weighs the pros and cons of both sides. The important thing is that you support your position using our course readings and the media provided.*I emphasis here that you should be crafting an argument in support of an informed position. You are NOT defending an opinion. Opinions, by definition, are NOT based in knowledge. In a college level course, you want to be building arguments off of your understandings of the material. Using statements like “in my opinion” and “personally” throughout your paper weaken the argument you are making and too often are used to justify unsupported statements. Additionally, you must also make connections between the bilingual education debate and the concepts of assimilation and multiculturalism that we will be covering this week. The questions I provided in the prompt are to get you thinking about how to connect this issue of bilingual education with themes and concepts from this course.
PLEASE USE THESE ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOUND IN FOLDER “SHORT PAPER 2 – GUIDELINES” TO WRITE THE ASSIGNMENT IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE. I REALLY DO TRUST YOU. PLEASE ALSO DON’T FORGET TO ENGAGE AS LEAST “TWO” 2 OF THE MEDIA LINKS PROVIDED IN THE GUIDELINES FOLDER (3 OR 4 WOULD BE THE BEST). ALSO PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO USE AT LEAST “ONE” 1 DIRECT REFERENCE FROM THE TWO PDF READINGS AND THE URL READING (PLEASE TRY TO MAKE DIRECT REFERENCES/QOUTATIONS FROM THE TWO PDF READINGS SINCE IT IS GOING TO BE THE BEST).
