This is a “position paper” on the book: Eugenic Nation: Faults and Frontiers of Better Breeding in Modern America.
For this paper, you have to take a STAND on the book: was the book useful or not useful. By useful, can you use the ideas and evidence in the book in a way that allows you to better understand diversity and discrimination. A position paper requires an argument – which means presentation of evidence (a. from the book – cite page number; AND b. from experience – could also be a news story, cite the source) for your position.
If the book was useful, here is why it was useful – here is the evidence the author presented that makes it useful. If the book was not useful, here is why it was useless – here is the kinds of evidence the author presented and this is why it is meaningless.
The goal of this paper is to allow you to develop your own understanding of diversity and discrimination. Your understandings allow you to “make sense” of something you observe in the world. An understanding is not a “feeling,” it is an insight that is predicated on some evidential basis. this is not a book report or a book summary, so avoid summarizing the book!
Write 2-3 pages maximum.
