In other words, did the African independence movement lay the foundations for the economic, political, and social progress of Africa? Grade will be based on: – Demonstrated breadth of knowledge of the materials. Do you cite important evidence from the readings/documentaries to buttress your points? Can you draw examples/data from additional sources in making your argument? – Strength, soundness, coherence, and logical consistency of argumentation. Do you effectively answer the question, making use of the best arguments to prove your side’s case? – Factual accuracy, organization, and clarity of your paper. Grade will not be based on: – Inherent merits of the argument. That is, for purposes of this essay, there is no “right” answer. It is entirely a question of the manner in which the argument is made (although factual accuracy is important, as noted above).
