Also, to show that you understand two of the following three themes in US history since 1945: the causes and impact of African-American Civil Rights Movement. The impact of the Vietnam War on US foreign policy and domestic politics. Additionally, the origins and effects of the “culture wars” between liberals and conservatives.
Scope and instructions:
You may use any source, text, film, or supplementary lecture materials provided in class. Use of outside sources will result in an automatic loss of 50% from your total grade on the exam. Even if you use material for your research project. This is not a research project or a class asking you to evaluate readings from a different course, and failure to answer questions using information in this class represents a general failure of course objectives.
There is no minimum or maximum limit on this assignment, but students should plan to write at the very minimum 1,000 words for this question.
References to the readings using the author’s name. Also, a page or location number is required in order to earn credit. Bibliographical information for materials on the syllabus is not needed—simply include the last name of the author, the title of the document, and a page or electronic location number.
