If you’re wondering what the end result of these posted abstracts/introductions should look like, see below. These are from a class I taught on Finance/Banking in the 20th Century. The collective topic was:
Neoliberalism in the US: President Reagan, the DotCom Bubble, Inequality and the Occupy Movement and Student Debt
Students back then had to post abstracts only, so you’ll see that the stronger examples were dry but highly detailed and stated a clear and concise thesis statement. You can probably also see that some of these examples were not as strong as others.
I have made all of the students name’s Anonymous to protect their identities. However, it would be useful in your submissions if you did include your name so that your classmates know who wrote what. You don’t need to include your last name if you prefer.
