Play Writing Assignment: Create an original play. This drama must take place in the 20th century, as to coincide with your instruction in Social Studies. Topics include but are not limited to Prohibition, WWI, The Great Depression, WWII, the Women’s Rights Movement & the Civil Rights Movement. Although a fictional work, the historic details included should be accurate. Include a creative title and character list at the beginning of the play. This play should be a minimum of THREE pages long. It should have multiple scenes that are clearly labeled. Make sure to include italicized stage directions that are surrounded by brackets (They followed instructions). Stage directions are notes that tell how a play is performed. They describe scenery, costumes, lighting, and sound and may tell how the characters feel, move, and speak. Feel free to include a monologue, soliloquy or aside.
Your Unit 8 Assignment should be a formal, academic essay of 5-6 paragraphs, between two and ½ and three pages long, double spaced (excluding title page and References page). The paper should inform your audience about a specific, recent, and researchable change, either positive or negative, in your field of study. Your goal is to explain to your audience either what caused this change to occur or to analyze the effects this change has had on the field, without taking a position, arguing for a change, or offering solutions.
Focus on a single, specific, relevant, recent, and researchable change, either positive or negative, in your general field of study. Please note that technology is too broad as a topic, but a specific technological change like the increased use of cloud computing is a change; obesity is not a change, but the increase in obesity rates among children is a change.
Establish a clear thesis about this topic that focuses on either what caused the change or what effect this change has had on the field. You may not analyze both cause and effect.
Develop your thesis with specific observations, details, analysis, and research information
Avoid taking a position, making recommendations, or addressing solutions-the paper must be an objective, analytical essay that instead only analyzes the causes or effects of this change.
Organize your information logically, using clear transitions
Use appropriate formal third person language, avoiding first and second person language
Integrate 3-4 relevant and reliable, peer reviewed sources and demonstrate the ability to summarize and paraphrase source information rather than relying on quotes
Apply current APA citations format to credit any and all uses of source information, both when you use the source information within the paragraphs (in text citations) and in an alphabetically listed References page
Apply revision, editing, and proofreading strategies to substantially revise your final draft, demonstrating substantial revision of your Unit 6 Assignment and Unit 8 Discussion Board post.
Apply current APA formatting expectations (title page, double spaced paragraphs, regular one-inch margins, 12-point Times New Roman font, for example)
Need a personal narrative essay of 500 words. Also need answers for Section B. I have attached sample paper. Please see below for the instructions:
Choose a topic that enables you to tell a short, interesting personal story. Your story can be funny, suspenseful, meaningful, or exciting, but it must focus on one event. For example, if you decide to write about traveling to Denmark, you should not write about the entire trip. Choose one event (e.g., an afternoon you spent bicycling on an island, or your first taste of smoked herring, or your visit to the childhood home of Hans Christian Anderson) and tell a detailed story that focuses on that event.
The following are some ideas that can help you to select a topic for your story:
Firsts: Think of a “first” in your life and describe that moment in detail.
Proud Moment: Choose a moment when you felt proud about an accomplishment.
Adversity: Describe a time when you had to think or act quickly to overcome a challenge.
Travel: Recall a memorable experience you had while visiting an interesting place.
B. Think About Your Writing
Below your completed narrative, include answers to all of the following reflection questions:
1. Which narrative techniques did you use to bring your story to life? (2-3 sentences) Sophia says: Did you use vivid description, sensory details, and/or dialogue to engage readers? Provide two examples from your essay in which you “show” readers rather than “tell” them. EXAMPLE: A sentence such as “I glanced at the clock, grabbed my briefcase, and sprinted for the elevator” uses more descriptive language than simply saying, “I was running late for the meeting.”
2. How did your purpose and audience shape the way in which you wrote your narrative? (3-4 sentences) Sophia says: Your hypothetical audience extends beyond the people who will evaluate your narrative. Which individuals or groups were you addressing when you wrote your narrative, and how did consideration of your audience and your purpose influence the way in which you wrote it?
3. Provide a concrete example from your narrative that shows how you have written specifically for this audience and purpose. (3-5 sentences) Sophia says: Consider including a quotation from your essay and explaining how it was written to appeal to your audience, and to accomplish your purpose. Alternatively, you might describe a theme, tone, or narrative technique that you used and explain how it was intended to appeal to your audience and achieve your purpose.
Essay Instructions: Using the psychoanalytic lens, explain how a central theme develops in Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth.
Thesis: William’s neglectful upbringing contrasts with Jacks’ nurturing adolescence in Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth reflecting how children need unconditional love to grow into stable and successful adults.
Compare William and his mother Regan’s relationship and Jack and Ellen’s relationship. Paragraph one should explain what the relationships were like and how Williams’s mother was neglectful and how Jack’s mother was loving. Paragraph two should explain the effect of these relationships. The essay should be cause and effect.
Applied Research in Action
Write a 750- to 1,050-word essay responding to the following scenario:
The city police chief reaches out to you knowing your applied research experience. The department has recently had an increase in citizen complaints and officer use-of-force incidents. The chief is considering adopting the use of body-worn cameras (BWCs) but would like to understand research on their effectiveness. She finds you well qualified to provide some direction in this regard.
She has asked that you thoroughly review the research article entitled “Exploring the Potential for Body-Worn Cameras to Reduce Violence in Police–Citizen Encounters,” published in Policing, and prepare an essay for her in which you address each of the following elements:
Describe the primary purpose of the study (exploration, description, explanation, or evaluation). What were the research questions that the study was designed to answer?
List the key independent and dependent variables, identifying the causal relationships the researchers sought to examine. Explain how the researchers conceptualized and operationalized the dependent variables.
Explain the time dimension of the study and how it impacted data collection. Describe whether the study involved a cross-sectional or longitudinal design and whether data were collected retrospectively or prospectively.
How did the researchers test to see whether BWCs were related to the study dependent variables?
What were the results of the study in terms of each of the causal relationships examined? In discussing the findings, be sure to distinguish the study participant groups in terms of outcomes between the separate groups, as well as changes over time within each group. Discuss unusual study findings, noting any changes in conditions under which the study was conducted and other potential reasons these results might have occurred.
Discuss the themes that emerged from the study, providing recommendations to the police chief regarding use of BWCs.
Be sure to cite your sources in the body of your paper and list them on your reference page, consistent with APA guidelines. Remember, applied research is not common knowledge, so it is important to cite to all of your sources of information.
Please read “Avoiding Logical Fallacies” in Chapter 17 of THE WEST GUIDE, pp. 276-283. (Chapter 19 of THE WEST GUIDE pp. 314-320 in the older edition).
Please write up TEN of the logical fallacies in Steven Rhoads’ article, “What Fathers Do Best.” Note, that this is the “warm up” in the instructions on p.282, but in this class, it is your formal assignment.
The most important aspect of this assignment is that you EXPLAIN why certain points he makes are fallacies. BE SPECIFIC. This can be in list format with brief paragraphs of description to explain. It need not have an introduction or conclusion, but it must have explanations paragraphs for each fallacy.
Write a formal assignment below (no attachments) on the logical fallacies you find in Steven Rhoad’s “What Fathers Do Best.” The article appears in our textbook on p. 323. (Page numbers may differ with older editions).
Please list all of the fallacies you find in the article, where you find them, and then EXPLAIN why they are fallacies. Label the fallacies using the names in our textbook, pp. 314-325 in the Logical Fallacies section of Chapter 19 “Advanced Modes of Argumentation.” (Again, page numbers may differ with older editions).
For example, “Steven Rhoads appeals to tradition when he states, ‘…”
BE SPECIFIC. Continue all the way to the end of the article. Don’t lose steam. Remember that there can be more than one fallacy even in a single sentence. Be as thorough as you can be. An introduction and conclusion are not necessary. This is a list with paragraphs of explanation.
A perspective on the difference between generalization and countering. Explore an example of generalization that has caused some pretty faulty thinking ? How might that line of thinking be transformed into one of the examples of countering that was learnt.

In an essay of 1,500-2,000 words, analyze how one or two of the readings we have studied illuminate a major difference between your home and the Hult Boston community or, more generally, Cambridge and Boston. (Limitless learning students can focus on a difference between their home and the online classroom experience at Hult, if that is more accessible.) For example, you might comment on how the principles described by Plato, Aristotle, the Bible, the Qur’an, Mary Wollstonecraft, Adam Smith, W.E.B. DuBois, or any of the other writers on our syllabus help to explain: A difference between some aspect of the Hult community and your previous school; or Education in our class compared to your high school classes; or Cambridge compared to your previous residence; or Some aspect of local society and classes that you find different from your previous experiences. Here are some even more specific examples: Choose a major difference between your home and Hult (for example, exposure to different cultures, academic rigor, the Cambridge community, or gender relations), and explain how one of the readings helps to illuminate this difference. Apply some aspect of Plato’s understanding of truth as discussed in his analogy of the cave to Hult’s educational system, compared to your high school. Apply Aristotle’s theory about the importance of rules to some element of U.S. society, compared to your home. Apply Confucius’s argument about the importance of introspection to some element of the culture of the Hult community, compared to your home. Compare some economic element of your home and the Hult community, and explain how the writings of Adam Smith, Karl Marx, Yuval Harari, or some other thinker we have read help to explain this difference. Be sure to state your thesis in the first paragraph (for example, “[Reading X] helps to explain [difference Y] between Hult and my previous school for [reason Z] in the following ways [1, 2, and 3]”), provide examples to support and illustrate your thesis,
Write a five paragraph essay comparing and contrasting one of the following topics.
