Hello, i need you to answer question 2, from the assignment.

Hello, I need you to answer Question 2, from the assignment. I have put on some extra files to help you, Also you may use the red prompt in the image of the whiteboard.
Novel is (American son
Novel by Brian Ascalon Roley)
Focus the essay on how Tomas’s passing is unethical because he rejects his family and family conditions.
Talk about :
Ika is a round character (she changes) as her sons act differently from beginning to end.
Does Roley make Ika look sympathetic?
Ika tells Tomas/Gabe to Assimilate, but they assimilated too far.
Talk about how Tomas always rejects his family identity, e.g. he is so hostile to the family – seen in Chapter 4 part 3, in the party as Tomas doesn’t enter the room when the aunts/family are talking
Does Ika set up her son to reject their family?
Talk about the constant treatment Tomas has towards Ika/Gabe and extended family
Some tips:
DO NOT SUMMARIZE THE BOOK – ONLY ANALYZE
DON’T PSYCHOANALYZE CHARACTERS, ANALYZE ROLEY’S CHOICES NOT THE CHARACTER PSYCHOLOGY – IT IS A FICTIONAL ANALYSIS
FOCUS ON THE ASSIMILATION OF THE CHARACTERS!
In the beginning or end, see how the different audiences may react to the novel and its purpose of it. did Roley write it for a white/non-white audience or both?
How would a white member react to the novel?
How would a non-white react to the novel?
Avoid the personality of characters, but the assimilation
Focus on character development rather than analyzing then

When you speak, i expect that you say more than two or three sentences.

I will uload the reading
so it will be 3 different quotes for the 3 different parts
here are thr pages for the 3 different parts
pp. 21-44 part
45-54 second part
55-63
– third part
skim through the reading, Please submit one quote with annotation for each of the three (sometimes two) sections of text (reading assignments); due dates for each are in your module. For each of the three (or two) quotes, say in your annotation why you picked this quote or why it was interesting to you, what sorts of feelings it evoked in you and why, what you think it means and how it relates to other things. This can be more personal or more academic or creative. However, you should be able to speak intelligently about this quote, meaning you should choose something that you feel you can actually say something about. In other words, your quote should not be something you cannot comprehend at all; if you have comprehension questions, you can just ask them in class or in office hours. Choose something that you want to explore or that resonates with you or raises certain bigger problems that you find important. When you speak, I expect that you say more than two or three sentences. This will be graded, and if you have not submitted a quote with comments the night before we are discussing the assigned reading, or if you do not have those on hand in class in order to share them with the rest of us, or if you only make some cursory statements that are either superficial, fail to demonstrate close reading (of the entire assignment for that day) and deep thinking, or do not effectively engage your classmates, you will lose half or all the credit for a given annotation.

This discussion should build your critical reading and analysis skills, as well as help prepare you for your essays later in the course.

Purpose: Practice discovering the epic themes of the warrior hero, good and evil, and mortality by considering a major epic, Shahnameh or the Epic of Kings. This discussion should build your critical reading and analysis skills, as well as help prepare you for your essays later in the course. Keep in mind that, your central concern is to understand what the evidence about these themes reveals about the relationship between the epic heroes and their own cultures as well as the relationship between epic heroes and heroic elements common to human society in all times.
Tasks: Use the steps below to write a 500+ word response connected to the purpose and overarching themes in the readings for this unit. Pick Option 1, 2, or 3 below, and follow the steps outlined.
Option 2: Human mortality: Rustem is helpless against circumstances that cause the deaths of those whom he cares for. What do the betrayals of Rustem and Saiawush and the deaths of Sorab and Saiawush indicate about the Persian culture, or how do they express Zoroastrian beliefs? Choose a passage that speaks to these questions. Then, consider these questions in relation to your passage: How does your passage illustrate a conclusion about the view of death within this culture or more generally?
Once you have done this, structure and revise your initial thoughts into 2-3 robust, well-developed paragraphs of at least 500 words, using the passage you have selected as evidence to support your ideas, and post them in the discussion.

Write an essay that illustrates what apparently drives mappen’s interests as an historian.

You’ve been asked to read six of Mappen’s essays on the Revolutionary War: “Tories,” “The Hanging
of Captain Huddy,” “Good Golly, Miss Molly,” “Lee at Monmouth,” “The Caldwell Murder Case,”
and “Move Over, Betsy Ross.”
As a New Jersey historian, Mappen clearly wanted to emphasize New Jersey’s importance to the
Revolutionary War. In fact, he make this claim in several of his essays. But that motive alone doesn’t
seem to account for his choice of topics or how he treats them. What does? Write an essay that
illustrates what apparently drives Mappen’s interests as an historian.
