UGS 302- Motherhood in America - Gutterman


In Class Activities

On your own for just a few minutes read a bit of article 1 and skim through to notice the structure and characteristics. What would you call this article? I've pasted a portion of your assignment below. Which of the source types would this source fulfill? What clues helped you determine this? We will discuss as a class. 

From your assignment: For this series of assignments you will be required to complete one 8-10 page research paper. For this paper you will be required to put a contemporary event, newspaper article or cultural item about motherhood into historical context and analyze what that item tells us about the meaning of motherhood in America today. In the past, students have examined a series of articles on a mommy blog, coverage of a particular issue in the news, a movie, a TV show, and a book of poetry. You will have to use at least two primary sources, two secondary, scholarly sources (not from course syllabus), and two readings from our course.
