In an idea shamelessly stole-umm, borrowed from AP World History Cram Teacher Eric Beckman, we’re going to be running a Cram Contest:
Practice analyzing sourcing and using a document as evidence. Use the passage below as evidence to support an evaluation of the extent to which attitudes regarding civil rights changed between 1857 and 1877. (That’s basically a prompt.) Include both usage (summary) and sourcing analysis (HIPP). The best answer(s) will feature in the Unit 5 APUSH Cram stream.
Source: Frederick Douglass, Equal Rights Association: Proposed Resolutions, 1869
"Resolved, that the American Equal Rights Association, in loyalty to its comprehensive demands for the political equality of all American citizens, without distinction of race or sex, hails the extension of suffrage to any heretofore disenfranchised…
“Resolved, furthermore, that in view of this promised and speedy culmination of one-half of our demands, we are stimulated to redouble our energy to secure the further amendment guaranteeing the same sacred rights without limitation to sex.”
How to Submit
Reply to this thread with your two-three sentence answer. Explain how this source by Douglass supports an evaluation of attitudes regarding civil rights changing between 1857 and 1877 and analyze how an element (HIPP) of the sourcing influences the content of the document.
Deadline for submission:
April 13, 2020 → April 19, 2020
I will not necessarily provide feedback, but I will pick one or more responses to feature on APUSH Cram Stream #4: Unit 5, 9pm ET on April 21.
Feel free to give other students feedback, too!
