    • Early American Partner Writing Assignment: You are writing a short paper (2-3 pages) with a partner or small group addressing the prompt "what is the untold story of America?--What is the story we don't tell in our country and in our history?" In this paper you need to include at least three successfully integrated quotes from the three stories that we read at the start of the semester (Olaudah Equiano, La Relacion, and The History of Virginia). Your essay needs to be formatted in MLA format, including a complete MLA header, needs to have a strong and arguable thesis that answers the prompt, and needs to analyze rather than summarize the writings. If you want to add external sources that are not found in the textbook then you may do so, but you MUST still have the three textbook quotes in your essay. Make sure that you are making a claim and supporting it. Also, be sure that you are well-edited. If you have questions, please ask me.
