Read the following opinion article published online in The McGill Journal of Political Studies.
Write a 400-500 word essay-style response with a thesis that addresses these connected questions:
What have your thoughts been on racism and systemic racism with regards to the COVID-19 epidemic in Canada? Reflecting on your thoughts, what do you notice about (a) the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic on racialized communities (b) bias and stereotypes in the Canadian health care system (c) whether or not it is necessary and important to collect data that tracks race and socio-demographic information OR (d) personal experience (or experiences of family members) of racism and/or systemic racism during the pandemic?
To answer this, think about what you have thought, felt and experienced while being in this unusual time and how it has been different or similar from previous experiences. To help keep your response focused, choose just ONE of the (a) – (d) options given in the question.
Your essay must include:
1. An introductory paragraph that:
Starts with a summary sentence capturing the main idea of the article by Joy Ahrum Kwat. This should be in the same style we have been practicing (i.e. “In [ARTICLE TITLE], [AUTHOR NAME] [PRESENT TENSE VERB] [MAIN IDEA OF ARTICLE]”).
Transitions clearly from the summary sentence of the article to your own ideas.
Contains a thesis statement that (a) clearly and concisely captures the central idea of your essay; (b) clearly addresses the question above (in bold); and (c) is your own ideas that are distinct from Kwak’s ideas.
2. One or more body paragraphs that:
Begin with topic sentences that indicates the main point of the paragraph.
Have a clear and logical structure.
Clearly develop and explain the thesis statement.
3. A concluding paragraph that:
Clearly and logically wraps up the essay.
4. Writing that:
Is clear and has been proofread for typos, format (font size, margins, line spacing), and basic errors.
Is organized into (a) complete sentences; and (b) well-structured paragraphs. Uses diction that is tailored to audience and purpose. Is free of grammar errors.
Pays attention to basic requirements: length (400-500) words, proper acknowledgment and representation of Kwak’s article (if used — see note 2 below).
1. Your analysis must be written entirely in your own words and it must be centred around your own ideas.
2. Do not refer to any sources outside of Kwak’s article posted here. Note that you do not have to refer to Kwak’s passage beyond the opening summary sentence, but if you do, you must represent her ideas accurately and cite & acknowledge them appropriately. If any outside sources are used beyond Kwak’s article, your exam will receive a zero. A reference page is not required but in-text citations are.
3. If you plagiarize any part of your analysis, you will receive a zero on the exam.
Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to:
Reading online sources to get ideas about the exam passage and using those ideas in your answer as if they were your own
Copy-pasting phrases, sentences, or passages from web pages
Copying ideas, phrases, sentences, or passages from your friend’s work
Using phrases, sentences, passages, or key ideas from an essay of your own that you have already submitted for marks
In short — please just use your own ideas to write the best essay-style response you can. That will always be a better idea than trying to get ideas or words from someone else. Even if you don’t think you can do well, remember that even a 40% is a whole lot better than a zero.
4. Title page and reference page are NOT required.
