Notes
  • As a student athlete I’m always on the grind at basketball practice and I’ve been really short on time all through high school. I usually order a research paper or English essay here and there. The website is called Digitalessay.net and they really help me out, man. Don’t know where I’d be without it.

  5. 5. Analyze the documents by grouping them in as many appropriate ways as possible. • This means, put documents in groups based on how they relate to “factors that shaped the modern Olympic movement.” Group the docs so that . . . • There are 3 or more groups of docs • Each doc is in a group • (you may put some docs in more than one group) On a sheet of paper write all the groups and the doc #s. Example: Wanting peace – 1,6
  6. 6. • Read each doc quickly and write a word or phrase next to each doc that labels possible “factors that shaped the modern Olympic movement.” • Have a relevant thesis • This means, write a response to “analyze the factors that shaped the modern Olympic movement.” This response is based on the documents or groups of documents. On your paper write a thesis paragraph… “There were many factors that shaped the modern Olympic movement from 1892 to 2002. Some of the factors were ____________, _____________, and
  7. 7. Have a relevant thesis • This means, write a response to “analyze the factors that shaped the modern Olympic movement.” This response is based on the documents or groups of documents. On your paper write a thesis paragraph… “There were many factors that shaped the modern Olympic movement from 1892 to 2002. Some of the factors were ____________, _____________, and ______________.”
  8. 8. Group documents & support the thesis with evidence from the documents. • This means write a paragraph for each group and explain how each document in that group shows a “factor that shaped the modern Olympic movement” • Write a body paragraph using one of your groups… “One factor that shaped the modern Olympic movement was nationalism (3,4,5,6,10). Each of these documents shows how pride for nations influenced the games. In doc 3, Lunn says that for the Nazis, the ski competition was a way to show German superiority. In doc 4, …”
  9. 9. Analyze Point of View • This means to choose 3 docs and explain why the speaker / writer of the doc has his particular point of view. (POV in 3) For example “Matthias (doc 4) focuses on the rivalry with the Soviet Union in the interview because he competed at the beginning of the Cold War and the interview was given during the Cold War so Matthias’ point of view was influenced by the intense political rivalry between the USSR and US.”
  10. 10. Analyze Point of View • On your paper, choose another document and explain the POV of the author or speaker. “Matthias (doc 4) focuses on the rivalry with the Soviet Union in the interview because he competed at the beginning of the Cold War and the interview was given during the Cold War so Matthias’ point of view was influenced by the intense political rivalry between the USSR and US.”
  11. 11. POVs • Doc 1 – Courbertin is very positive about the modern Olympics. His point of view is influenced by the fact he is the founder of the Olympic movement, he obviously wants to show how great the Olympics can be so he may exaggerate how the Olympics will unify people.
  12. 12. POVs • Doc 3 – Lund is very critical of the Nazis. His point of view is influenced by the fact that his country, Great Britain, was in political tension with Germany and the Nazis before World War II. His point of view may be more influenced by the fact that by the time of his interview he saw the destruction caused by the Nazis so looking back he will see their evil side.
  13. 13. POVs • Doc 5 – Azuma describes the Tokyo Olympics as a miracle. His point of view is influenced by his leadership of the group who organized the Olympics, he probably wants to show how great it was and so he may exaggerate the benefits of the games. As mayor he may also want to declare that Tokyo is now a great city.
