Automatic course failure for ANY plagiarism.
Part One Pick ONE of the following essays
1) “It seemed like nothing happened.” How does this phrase
characterize the 1970’s? Were the people of the 70’s “refugees
from a future that never happened”? What did they want? What
did they feel they lost or were “supposed to get” but didn’t? Was
it just a 1950’s nostalgia or a deeper one that included the 1960’s
as well? Do you think this is “typically” American throughout our
history or something that is distinctive to these years? Why or
why not?
2) The 1970’s and the 1980’s are depicted often as the “Me” generation
(1970’s) or the “Us” generation (1980’s). BOTH represent a very
distinctive trend toward individualism, greed, and the desire to be
distracted from the realities of everyday life. What are the
distinguishing elements and /or indicators of this? What are the
reasons that they appear during these decades? How do presidents
during these decades represent or not represent this trend?
Part Two Pick ONE of the following essays
3) James Earl Carter seemed to represent the promise of a
Washington “outsider” – a fresh face that wouldn’t lie to you.
Why did this appeal to many Americans at the time he ran?
Many see his presidency as a failed one. How could this be
argued? What things could be seen as successes? How
would you rate him as a president and an individual?
4) Discuss the rise of the religious and conservative right over
the course of the early 1980’s. Where did this movement come
from? Who were its main “players” ? Was it successful? How
it continue today as a viable force in American culture and
politics? In what ways? Is it a core American cultural element?
Part Three Pick ONE of the following essays
5) Economic trends in American history are very important to study,
Understand and remember. Reaching back across the course, trace
the variations running from the 1920’s on forward right into the
Great Recession that we just emerged from . Be careful to cite
