2) the process of racial formation is different in every society.

Respond to the discussion questions from Chapter 6 of Perspectives:
1) García describes the reasons that race is considered a “discredited concept in human biology.” Despite this scientific fact, most people continue to believe that race is “real.” Why do you think race has continued to be an important social reality even after it has been discredited scientifically?
2) The process of racial formation is different in every society. In the United States, the “one-drop rule” and hypodescent have historically affected the way people with multiracial backgrounds have been racialized. How have ideas about multiracial identity been changing in the past few decades? As the number of people who identify as “multiracial” increases, do you think there will be changes in the way we think about other racial categories?
3) Members of some ethnic groups are able to practice symbolic ethnicity, limited or occasional displays of ethnic pride and identity. Why can ethnicity be displayed in an optional way while race cannot?
1)There is no scientific evidence supporting the idea that racial or ethnic background provides a biological advantage in sports. Instead, a variety of social dynamics, including cultural affinities and preferences as well as access and opportunities influence who will become involved in particular sports. Think about a sport in which you have participated or have followed closely. What social dynamics do you think are most responsible for affecting the racial, ethnic, gender, or social class composition of the athletes who participate?
Recall what you read in the article “When Black Female Victims Aren’t Seen as Victims,” by Eshe Lewis.
2)Thisarticle discusses Peru, but the author’s central insight also applies here in the United States: “While women of other backgrounds are more readily understood as victims, black women are often portrayed as aggressors.” Where does this perception come from? What are its consequences?

Show the specific ways in which corruption has benefitted chinese society and argue that those benefits have clearly outweighed the negative effects

Each student will be assigned to a 2-3 person team and compete in an Oxford-style debate. This is not high school debate where “anything goes” and facts can be selectively cherrypicked. While it is important to develop persuasive arguments, debate teams should not purposively misstate statistics or intentionally mislead the class. Check and cross-check your facts. One or two key statistics may be useful for your argument, but they should be drawn from high quality sources, not deliberately taken out of context, and cited during the debate. Jamming in too many facts and rattling off lots of statistics during the debate is disorienting and ineffective. All statistics referenced during the debate and in individual motion briefs must be cited.
I need, in the document you will submit to me, the individual motion brief with the instructions below as well as 3-4 FOR the motion examples and 2-3 AGAINST the motion examples where my counterargument will be formed from.
The debate topic is as follows:
Corruption in China has benefitted more than it has harmed Chinese society
FOR: Define corruption and Chinese society. Show the specific ways in which corruption has benefitted Chinese society and argue that those benefits have clearly outweighed the negative effects
AGAINST: Define corruption and Chinese society. Show the specific ways in which corruption has harmed – and continues to harm – Chinese society and argue that those negative effects have clearly outweighed any positive effects
Remember that the primary purpose of these debates is to inform and educate your classmates on pertinent and often under-appreciated aspects of an issue and allow them to make up their own minds.
1) Individual Motion Brief (25 points): To prepare for the debate, each student will write an Individual Motion Brief which will be graded according to a 25-point rubric that is detailed in Gradescope and highlighted below. This short research paper must: 1) clearly state whether you support or oppose the motion, 2) offer THREE compelling arguments in support of your position that are backed by cited evidence from your research, and 3) thoughtfully address ONE potential counterargument by the other side., and 4) stay within a 750 word limit. This counterargument should reflect what you perceive as the greatest threat to your position on the debate motion. Carefully addressing this counterargument will help you prepare for your debate. Each argument and counterargument should start with a succinctly written topic sentence.
The brief must be uploaded to Gradescope by 10pm on the Monday before your debate to give your team time to coordinate, prepare and practice your presentations together before the debate on Thursday. I strongly encourage you to read the example in the Files section of bCourses.
Please download and adhere closely to the Individual Motion Brief template has been provided for the brief. There are some guidelines for word limits for each section, but do not use the max for every section. Use 12-point font and do not exceed 750 words. Single spacing is fine. Also, be sure to include author-date style parenthetical in-text citations (Bremmer 2007, 44), and a reference list according to the Chicago Manual of Style: https://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide/citation-guide-2.htmlLinks to an external site..
Examples of previous briefs can be in uploaded files.
Do not include your name on the paper or in the file name but do include the word count. This allows me to grade the briefs blindly and more objectively. Late briefs will be penalized one point per 24 hours after deadline.
While team members should closely collaborate, each member is required to do their own research. Debate briefs should not offer the same arguments or cite the same sources. Your brief must cite in the brief a variety of outside sources and include at a minimum:
TWO required readings from that week’s materials. These are the sources that the other students will be reading, so it is important that you read them also.
ONE physical book from UCB libraries, either from a major university press or a major publisher (limited to: HarperCollins, M.E. Sharpe, Palgrave Macmillian, Penguin, Public Affairs/Hachette Book Group, Picador, Routledge, SAGE, Springer, Simon & Schuster, Vintage, Wiley & Sons, and W.W. Norton). Include a smartphone photo of the book on the Works Cited page.
TWO peer-reviewed journal articles from the UCB library website. I strongly suggest using Academic Search Complete, part of EBSCOhost.
TWO articles from major English language newspapers (limited to: The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, San Jose Mercury News, San Francisco Chronicle, The Guardian, BBC, NPR, CNN, Politico, The Atlantic, Politico, The New Yorker, Bloomberg News, Wired, TechCrunch, VOX, Re/code, Forbes, Fortune, Financial Times, VentureBeat, The Economist).
TWO articles from respectable Chinese and/or India news sources available in English (such as: South China Morning Post, Xinhua News, Caixin Global, Caijing (English), Asia Times Online, Times of India, The Hindu, The Indian Express, scroll.in, Taipei Times)
Students must email me for approval for exceptions to this list. If you are in doubt of the validity of a source, please email me.
2) I also need along with this – as said above – 3/4 reasons to support the motion and 2/3 potential points the AGAINST team might potentially bring up and the counterarguments for them.

Through to the writing process.

Signature Assignment
Write a 3 to 4 page paper on how to conduct academic research using Internet
resources. For example, some of the topics you might explore are: How the
Internet has changed academic paper-writing, what search engines are and how
they work, what Boolean expressions are and how they are used in the search
process, what research resources and tools exist now that we have the Internet,
how the Internet has changed how we cite references, technology-related
methods for organizing and producing our papers, etc.).
Your paper can concentrate on one of the suggested topics in-depth or you
might cover a few or most of the topics in your paper. An example of covering
one topic in-depth is that you might research and describe how technology has
changed academic paper-writing over time, from the time that e-mail was
invented through current Internet technology. Another example of covering a
single topic in-depth might be to explore how student searches for articles and
books has changed since the time we used card catalogs to current Internetbased searches, new techniques, and on-line libraries. Further another in-depth,
single-topic example is to locate and describe the different technology tools and
techniques for organizing information for a research paper. An example of how
you might pull multiple topics together would be to write about the impact of the
Internet on the different steps in the paper-writing process, from research
through to the writing process.
One important key is that you must write about technology and academic
research.
Your paper should be in APA style citing references as appropriate. Use at least
5 but no more than 10 references with at least 3 references from journal articles
(use the TUW library databases where possible for this).
