Evidence/Interpretation Chart

 

For academic essays, the types of essays you will write in college, you will support and frame what you say against various sources (books, articles, films, etc.).

 

Sometimes it’s difficult to focus on what you say, your analysis, instead of focusing on the author’s ideas. This chart will help me guide you to analysis, and away from summary.

 

Instructions

 

Choose 2 quotes from your selected source and analyze them as shown in the chart. A blank chart is included for you to use.

 

Examples

“Mixed-race blacks have an ethical obligation to identify as black” (Williams 133)

 

 

 

 

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­____________________________________

“a new Pew Research Center study shows, the percentage of interracial marriages has more than doubled (from 6.7 percent in 1980 to approximately 15 percent in 2010)” (Williams 133)

Williams believes that black Americans that are multiracial have to count themselves as black.

 

Multiracial African Americans are morally supposed to identify themselves as African American.

 

While multi-racial blacks may have an easier life if they identify themselves as white, or as a less harshly judged minority, hiding black identity makes it seem as though that race is something to be ashamed of.

 

___________________________________

As interracial marriages become more common, and immigrants marry Americans, the number of multi-racial Americans increases. Americans have to learn to accept multi-racial identities as part of the American identity.
