Genocide Paragraph Assignment
Baptism of Prince Vladimir (1890) by Viktor Vasnetsov (1848-1926). Sketch for a fresco that is in the
Cathedral of St. Vladimir in Kiev. (Vasnetsov did most of the interior painting/frescoes in
this late nineteenth-century cathedral.)
Read the material about the
Rape of Nanking (along with the document background notes
and the study questions) and answer the following
question in a paragraph:
Citing specific evidence from the material about the Rape of Nanking, why did this genocide occur?
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.
