Assessment: Analysis of Approaches to Central Ideas


In the End-of-Unit Assessment, students apply the writing skills they have developed throughout this module and draw upon their analysis of either Lorde’s poem “From the House of Yemanjá” or “An Address by Elizabeth Cady Stanton” as well as one text from Unit 1 to craft a formal, multi-paragraph response to the following prompt: Consider a central idea in Lorde’s “From the House of Yemanjá” or “An Address by Elizabeth Cady Stanton.” Identify a related or similar central idea in either Du Bois’s “Of Our Spiritual Strivings” or Washington’s “Atlanta Compromise Speech” and compare the approaches the authors take in developing a similar or related central idea. Discuss how each author uses at least one of the following to develop the related or similar central idea: word choice, rhetoric, point of view, or purpose.
