3-2 Writing Plan Progress Check 3

  1. Describe the historical event that you selected. Why is this event significant?

The historical event that I chose to focus on is School Desegregation in Boston. This event is significant because it was a big factor involving equal opportunity for education in the U.S. I also believe it is important because of everything going on today in 2021 involving people of different races. The cry for change in racial equality. The NEED in change STILL today in 2021.

 

  1. Describe at least two secondary sources that you could use to research your historical event. Your sources must be relevant to your event and must be of an appropriate academic nature. In your description, consider questions such as: What are the similarities and differences in the content of your sources? What makes them appropriate and relevant for investigating your event? What was your thought process when you were searching for sources? How did you make choices?

 The first secondary source I can use is “Boston Desegregation Busing Crisis.” You could access this article by using the link Boston desegregation busing crisis – Wikipedia.

Another secondary source I can use is “Timeline: The chain of events that brought chaos to Boston Schools.” You can access this article by using the link Timeline: The chain of events that brought chaos to Boston’s Schools – Spare Change News.

I chose these two sources because they go in depth and give us an insight of the events that happen before, during and after the Boston Desegregation and each article highlights different yet important events, and this was the reason I chose these two articles.

 

III.           Describe at least two primary sources that you could use to research your historical event. Your sources must be relevant to your event and must be of an appropriate academic nature. In your description, consider questions such as: How do these sources relate to your secondary sources? What do they add to your understanding of the event? What makes them appropriate and relevant for investigating your event?

 *My first primary source that will be used for my research is “Morgan V. Hennigan: Desegregation of Boston Public Schools.” Written by Tina L. Ligon. You can access this article using the link: Morgan v. Hennigan: Desegregation of Boston Public Schools – Rediscovering Black History (archives.gov). This article gives information and shows actual documents on keys points during this historical event, the 1954 Brown V. Board of Education ruling and the Morgan V. Hennigan class action lawsuit.

My second Primary Source I will use for my research is The National Archives Catalog “1976 Boston School Desegregation.” You can access this article by using the link: 1976 Boston School Desegregation (archives.gov).  This source gives multiple documents from this time and will be useful in

my final project to take readers back to the time of this event with actual documents.

  1.        Based on your review of primary and secondary sources, develop a research question related to the historical event you selected. In other words, what would you like to know more about?

Another research question I would ask is “What were short and long-term effects of the Boston Busing program on the students that were involved?”

 

  1. Identify an audience that would be interested in your historical event and research question. For example, who would benefit most from hearing your message?  

My                  audience that would be interested in my historical event would the youth in this generation now. This was a big historical event that has really been forgotten. Up until this class, I was never taught about this event that happened. After reading it, I was really bothered that no one felt this was something that needed to be brought up while we were in school learning history, especially with the issues we are facing today.

 

  1. Describe how and why you can tailor your message to your audience, providing specific examples. For example, will your audience understand historical terminology and principles associated with your event, or will you need to explain these? How will you communicate effectively with your audience?

 By highlighting the major events and key factors during this event, could help tailor my message for my audience. Having a detailed paper will help my communication effectively with the audience.
