Now that you ve chosen your article

Now that you’ve chosen your article:

  • The question asks for two pieces of evidence from each text that shows how the two have the same themes

  • Pick out information from each text that shows they have the same theme.


Claim

Claim:

  • Answer the question using a complete sentence.

  • Avoid using “Yes” or “No” at the beginning of the sentence.

  • Avoid using “I think” or “I believe”.

  • Avoid using pronouns as replacements for nouns from the question.

  • Be specific in your answer without giving away too much.


Check for understanding which claim is best

Check for understanding: which claim is best?

  • I think the “Bill of Rights” and Harrison Bergeron are similar in theme.

  • “The Chinese Cultural Revolution” best parallels “Harrison Bergeron’s” themes of government-enforced equality and rebellion.

  • The best article is “Vast Wasteland” in how it parallels the story.


Set up

Set-Up:

  • Made up of two sentences

    • Sentence 1 - introducing the text and how you’re going to relate it to your claim

    • Sentence 2 – the first part of it introduces the specific quote you’ll be using

  • Example: Mao, the leader of the cultural revolution in China, is similar to Harrison Bergeron because they are both rebellious figures who believe they have the people’s best interests in mind. The author writes, “…”


Check for understanding

Check for Understanding:

  • Edit the following set-up so that it better introduces the quotation:

  • Equality was crazy in China, like the story says, too. He writes, “Mao deliberately set out to create a cult for himself and to purge the Chinese Communist Party of anyone who did not fully support Mao.”


Quotation evidence

Quotation/Evidence:

  • Direct textual evidence = quotations!

  • The evidence comes directly after the set up sentence.

  • Choose evidence that will effectively support your claim.


Check for understanding1

Check for Understanding:

  • Which piece of evidence best supports our claim?

    “The Chinese Cultural Revolution” best parallels “Harrison Bergeron’s” themes of government-enforced equality and rebellion.

  • Harrison and the ballerina started dancing around and then Diana Moon Glampers shot them.

  • “The movement began in September 1965 when Lin Piao gave a speech.”

  • “All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.”


Tie in

Tie-in:

  • Used to explain why you chose this quotation and how the quotation relates to your claim.

  • Use at least two sentences to do so.

  • When writing the tie-in, first try to explain why the quotation is useful in your own words. If you can’t, you may have a weak quotation.


Check for understanding2

Check for understanding:

Does this set-up fully explain the importance of the quotation?

“All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.” The Constitution has been amended and its new laws are protected by Diana Moon Glampers and the H-G men. Like Mao’s Red Guards, equality is enforced in the world of “Harrison Bergeron” by government officials. In this way, the theme of government-enforced equality is an important parallel between the two texts.


Putting it all together

Putting it all together:

“The Chinese Cultural Revolution” best parallels “Harrison Bergeron’s” themes of government-enforced equality and rebellion. Both stories contain examples of government-forced equality. To begin, the futuristic government of “Harrison Bergeron” (a short story written by Kurt Vonnegut) enforces equality through thinly-masked totalitarian control. Vonnegut writes, “All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.” The Constitution has been amended and its new laws are protected by Diana Moon Glampers and the H-G men. Like Mao’s Red Guards, equality is enforced in the world of “Harrison Bergeron” by government officials. In this way, the theme of government-enforced equality is an important parallel between the two texts.
