Read the excerpt from Hitler's Mein
Kampf (along with the document background notes
and the study questions) and answer the following
question in a paragraph:
Citing specific evidence from Hitler's Mein Kampf (not from the textbook), what were some of the main features of Hitler's ideology about
the "folkish" state?
Your paragraph should be about
one-half page in length, double-spaced with one-inch margins, font size 10 or 12; it should
contain a concise topic sentence that directly responds to the assigned
question (no need to define terms or cite a dictionary) and use
direct, quoted material to support your points. You
may consider submitting a draft of your assignment to your instructor for
feedback before submitting the assignment for a grade. Please send some specific questions that you would like answered about
your draft. The questions can be general (Is my thesis/first sentence clear?) or
specific (Is the phrase, "Chardin was jeweller," written correctly?).
Your assignment should be sent to your course
instructor following the directions
for submitting assignments.
