.George Watsky’s essay “What Year Is It?” is a valuable consideration of how disability can shape and affect someone’s life while also functioning as a strong opposition against ableism in the form of eugenics. Using proper essay format learned from So, Where is Your Thesis?, determine how Watsky is able to combat ableist ideas like eugenics through personal experiences with disability and the value of compassion and kindness. You might consider why Watsky would write such a personal story of disability and how that might affect readers also struggling with perceptions of ableism in their own disability (i.e. internalized ableism). Be sure to clearly state a coherent and cohesive thesis statement and avoid repeating your thesis statement in your conclusion. Finally, be sure to include examples from the text in order to support your thinking and provide valuable context.
