In your five paragraph essay using this   Writing Guide, use the Schultz class text and at least two of the other   sources provided for the topic you chose. Note, you need to   include a list of Sources at the end (next page below); also you must cite each of those sources in   the body of your paper with short in-text citations. Be sure to review the   instruction sheet for Assignment 1.  Also, see the help sheet called “Sources and Tips for Assignment 1”.  That help sheet also explains about   length and provides other tips. 

Introduction

In your introduction section, be concise but include the   information listed by the two bullets below. Your introduction should be one   paragraph in length:

  • Identify the        two different approaches that you will discuss—including people,        organizations, and strategies.
  • Describe        what you will cover in the paper.

HISTORY AND ISSUES

In two paragraphs, describe briefly the development of each view   or strategy, any key people or events, and any “success” either side had in   seeing that view come to pass.

COMPARISON

In your comparison paragraph, evaluate what you see as the   strengths and weaknesses of each view, and the impact of each in that period of   history. Explain which approach you favor and why.

CONCLUSION

In your conclusion paragraph, identify similar issues or   approaches that developed later, and any similar issues today.

Assignment 1: Different Approaches to Diversity Issues (1865–1925)

History 105:    Due Week 3 and worth 120 points  (Dr. Stansbury) 

Submission deadline: 9am Eastern time; Monday morning, July 27

In Assignment 1, we ask you to choose one of three topic choices listed below on the subject of diversity then use the Writing Guide located in Blackboard to write a brief paper on the subject. Each topic explores two different approaches to diversity during the 60-year period after the Civil War (1865–1925). The dynamic between the two approaches will have a profound impact on our history then—and now.

. Then, consider the other sources listed with each topic below. It is important that you review these sources carefully because your paper should use a minimum of three sources from the list below. Besides this instruction sheet and the Writing Guide, be sure to review the other helps (documents or video) provided by your instructor

TOPIC CHOICE ONE: Empowering African Americans—Two Strategies

Here you will focus on the approaches of Booker T. Washington and W. E. B. Du Bois. Other noted names and certainly different organizations will become part of your inquiry. Washington’s famous 1895 “Atlanta Compromise” speech (labeled such later by critics) sets the tone. One might find virtues, problems and successes associated with both strategies. You might see elements of each in strategies of later leaders and related issues even today.  For this topic you must use the three sources below. See SOURCES AND TIPS sheet page 2. 

Sources: Schultz, p. 340–2, 400–1, 404–5. See http://historymatters.gmu.edu/d/39/; and see http://historymatters.gmu.edu/d/40

TOPIC CHOICE TWO: Getting Women the Vote—Two Strategies

Here you will focus on the approaches of two organizations and some names associated with each. These are the NAWSA (National American Woman Suffrage Association; later the League of Women Voters) and the NWP (National Women’s Party). You will identify the strategic approach and key players in each as they pursued the common goal of getting women the right to vote. One might find virtues, problems and successes associated with both strategies. You might see elements of each in strategies of later leaders and related issues even today.  For this topic you must use the Schultz textbook and at least two of the other sources listed below.  See SOURCES AND TIPS sheet pages 2-3. 

Sources: Schultz, p. 364–366. Also see https://www.womenshistory.org/education-resources/biographies/carrie-chapman-catt on one of the leaders of the NAWSA; on the NWP’s Alice Paul, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GDe4DkZN2A ; and https://americanhistory.si.edu/blog/2012/05/alice-paul-champion-of-woman-suffrage.html.

TOPIC CHOICE THREE: Immigration—Two Opposing Approaches and Views

Here you will focus on two opposing views of immigration and its impact on American culture and life. These are visible in the late 1800s and early 1900s, in a time when immigration was skyrocketing for a long period; but significant restrictions would come into play. One view is represented by lines of a famous poem on the base of the Statue of Liberty. The other view finds its place in laws restricting immigration. One might find virtues, problems and successes associated with one or both strategies. You might see elements of each in strategies of later leaders and related issues even today. For this topic you must use the three sources below. See SOURCES AND TIPS sheet page 3. 

Sources: Schultz, p. 334–5, 348–9, 358–9, 408–9. Look for events and issues like the opening of Ellis Island, the melting pot idea, the Chinese Exclusion Act, and the National Origins Act.  Also see the poem on the Statue of Liberty base: https://www.nps.gov/stli/learn/historyculture/colossus.htm . And see http://college.cengage.com/history/wadsworth_9781133309888/unprotected/ps/chinese_exclusion_act.htm .

               --------------------------  

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced between      lines, using Times New Roman font, Calibri, Arial, or Courier (size 10,      11, or 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and sources must      follow SWS format. You must have a Sources list at the end; each source      listed must also be cited in the body of the paper with an in-text      citation. Check with your professor for any additional instructions. 
  • Include a cover page containing      the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the      course title, and the date you submit. The cover page and the Sources page      are not included in the required assignment length.

· The body of the paper should be five paragraphs and a total of 500-to-800 words in length.  The 500 minimum is firm; you really have not adequately developed the paper if less than that. The 800 maximum is a loose guideline.  The body of the paper is to be double-spaced.  Typically, if you follow these instructions, the body of your paper will be 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 pages in length; add a page for your title page and another for your sources list and that then gets to 4-1/2-to 5/1/2. But, the length requirement is evaluated by word count. 

The paper must be submitted (uploaded and attached) in the course shell provided online.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Discuss      the developments, racial and political policies, and laws from 1865 to the      1920s following the end of slavery.
