The essay is based on “THERE IS ONE CORRECT WAY OF
WRITING AND SPEAKING” (p.82), “AFRICAN AMERICAN LANGUAGE IS
NOT GOOD ENGLISH” (p.88), and “OFFICIAL AMERICAN ENGLISH
IS BEST” (p.93)
They ask for topic sentences, supporting evidence from the articles with full citations (works cited page), and analysis of the evidence.
My thesis paragraph was:
While someone who disagrees might state that Standard American English is required for American culture, trying to force those who may not speak what is considered ‘proper English’ to erase their original cultural identity can hurt more than help, as explained by Steven Alvarez, Jennifer Cunningham, and Anjali Pattanayak in their articles for ‘Bad Ideas About Writing.’ I agree and feel that doing so marginalizes everyone who is not generationally Caucasian American. Bias against those with a linguistically different background than Standard American English delays students’ integration with mainstream society, acceptance into top schools, and overall societal growth. Officially drawing a line between what can and cannot be said causes a division between people, and making those of a different background than the Standard American one speak ‘properly’ reinforces discrimination and demoralizes them.
