Part 1 Essay

Within this unit, you have learned many things regarding the Gilded Age, while getting a quick peek into the Progressive
Age. Based on this knowledge from the lecture and readings, identify the one event introduced in this post-Civil War era
that you feel best represents Twain's imagery of the "Gilded Age." Explain your reasoning for this selection.

The essay should focus on, but not be limited to the following:

- Events surrounding the Native American assimilation efforts, specifically the Dawes Act.

- Elude to how opportunities in mining and trade out west impacted values during the Gilded Age, or were impacted
by values of the Gilded Age.

- Examine the values that you learned within this unit regarding the Gilded Age, and evaluate how they impacted,
or were impacted by, Manifest Destiny.

Your response should be at least 500 words in length. You are required to use only source material deemed academically
permissible for your response. All sources used, including textbooks, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted
material must have accompanying citations.

Part 2 Essay

The list below includes some provocative discussions related to the events in this unit's reading. In an essay of a
minimum of 500 words, take a first-person perspective of the bulleted descriptions below. Develop an argument in your
own words, and justify academically the side of the argument you choose. The essay will need to reflect your
understanding of the time to avoid being anachronistic, and your argument must come from the standpoint of a first
generation immigrant and encompass each of the four elements below.

- Are you treated as equal by earlier generations?

- Would you feel pressured to pledge your loyalty to a political machine?

- Would you agree to engage in a strike?

- Do you feel leisure opportunities are divided by social class?

As this is a point of view essay, a modern perspective will not accurately address what the question is asking for. It is
strongly suggested that at least one selection from the provided source book is used as research of the event and views
of the time. All sources and their use must be appropriately identified per 6th edition APA format.

Part 3 Essay

Write a minimum 500 word essay characterizing the pre-war to post-war experience on the home-front. Write from the
perspective of a real-life person that would have experienced this era, such as a home town, family member, local
landmark, religious institution, or civic leader.

Your essay must discuss the relationship of this person's experience to the time period/event, and must include:

- reaction to British v. German naval battles;

- what changed because of the movement from isolationism;

- the experience of the local populations and varied demographics, including African Americans, women, and lower
classes;

Part 4 Article Critique

Pick a research topic that is of interest to you. Make certain that the topic is notable enough to locate at least one
published article. Some examples of effective topics could relate to: home town, a prominent family member, place of
worship, annual (local) cultural event, locally specific profession/interest, or local leader.

After you have selected your topic, locate at least one peer-reviewed article about your selected topic's experience in the
years between the world wars (1920-1936) and write a minimum 500 word article discussing the perception of the
experience from your topic's point of view. Make certain to include the following:

- how the return from war, and return to war, affected families and surrounding demographics;

- how economic challenges might have affected your topic's experience;

- how the migrations of numerous social and economic groups during this time impacted your topic;

- any impact that social movements, such as Flapper Culture, Lost Generation, or the Harlem Renaissance, had on
the cultural interests of your topic; and

- any New Deal programs which may have affected your topic.

Part 5 Essay

The list below includes some provocative discussions related to the events in the unit's reading. You will choose one to
write a 500 word essay in which you will take a first-person perspective of the situation, describe the debate in your own
words, and provide a justified and academically defended argument for one side or the other. The essay will need to
reflect your understanding of the time to avoid being anachronistic, and your argument must relate to one of the viable
outcomes from that time.

- As a multi-generational American citizen, in the wake of Pearl Harbor, do you support the internment of your
Japanese neighbors?

- As an 18 year old, male high school senior, are you eager or fearful of going to war?

- As an 18 year old, female high school senior, are you eager or fearful of going into the wartime factories?

- Is the crisis in Europe something that the U.S. should join in; or should the U.S. remain isolated? (Use a
perspective from no later than November 1941.)

- Is the possibility of ending the Depression reason enough to join the war?

Whichever first-person topic above you select, you must consider the influence of the below factors and conditions which
are relevant to all the topics and provide historical detail relevant to your topics:

- perceptions or impacts of limitations on and advocacy for civil rights,

- influence by propaganda or stereotypes,

- impacts of international events or crises, and

- impacts of economic conditions.

Part 6 Essay

The list below includes provocative discussions related to the events in the unit's reading. You will choose one and write a
500 word essay in which you will take a first-person perspective of the situation, describe the debate in your own words,
and provide a justified and academically defended argument for one side or the other. The essay will need to reflect your
understanding of the time to avoid being anachronistic, and to demonstrate that your argument is appropriate for that time.

- As a woman in the 1950s, how would you feel about the stereotype of the wife and mother on popular television
shows?

Robinson?
