Question Description

Promt: Using Stephanie Coontz’s essay, “What We Really Miss About the 1950s,” write an essay in which you expound or refute the idea that the American culture/society of the 1950s was not simply of a higher moral, but rather a product of different environment/circumstance, and therefore the current American society should exercise caution before calling for a return to the mythological higher values of yore. You must use three additional sources*, which you cite directly.

For all prompts, establish your own thesis that is inspired by the source identified in the prompt. Do not cite a source in your introduction so that your thesis stands out, and it does not appear you are simply echoing or repeating the source. Your thesis is the next step in the argument, be it for or against the source author's point. You are not writing an analysis or explication of the source essay of the prompt--doing so would limit your grade to no better than a C. The article identified in the prompt is no more important than the other research you will include.

Your essay must begin with an introduction that contains a clearly defined, purpose driven, and arguable thesis. The introduction should clearly identify any supporting main ideas that will support the thesis. Body paragraphs should contain minor claims (topic sentences) that advance controlling ideas and that support the thesis. All ideas should be supported with evidence. Your paper must cite examples from the stated texts in the prompt and from your outside sources*. Each example must be supported with critical thinking that explains the significance of the chosen quotation/citation as is relates to your ideas. In your conclusion make a final statement that clearly identifies why what has been shown in your essay is important.

*additional sources must come only from the following: an article located on EBSCOhost (or from a similar database), an article in a major newspaper or magazine, or a book (but not the class textbook or other course material); sources that do not meet this criteria will not count toward the minimum required sources.

Your paper must:

include an original title that speaks to your thesis

be a minimum of 4 full pages (approximately 1400-1500 words)

contain a minimum of 4 cited sources

be typed, double-spaced, using Times New Roman 12pt font

be formatted according to MLA

use MLA guidelines for in-text citations and Works Cited page

be written using strictly an academic, third-person point-of-view

Deluded Nostalgia
Introduction
There is nostalgia about the 1950s, because of the post-war boom period that was doing
reasonably well economically due to the availability of secure jobs, a high birth rate, quality
education and the federal intervention programs that ensured Americans accessed social security.
An American could easily access education via government financing and also a well-paying job,
and hence most Americans were proud homeowners. The government-funded programs also
introduced high interstate ways and also set minimum wage laws. From the social point of view,
the society set socially acceptable standards that accepted a conservative approach to family
matters. The man was the provider, and the woman was limited to childbearing and home
management roles. Indeed, sitcoms were aligned with social values that valued family life while
emphasizing set gender roles.
However, there was also the darker side of the so-called golden years that people are
nostalgic about. There was the aspect of racism that rocked American minorities, displacement
of blacks and Latinos and widespread sexism against women at the family unit level. In this
article, I will present a refuting perspective about the nostalgic reactions to the economic and
political prosperity of the 1950s at the expense of minorities and women. The political and

economic conditions were different back then and hence. Therefore, caution should be exercised
with the nostalgia about the 50s.
Different Circumstances
The economic and political situation between the 1950s and 1970s were more favorable
for the American families as most of the adults at the time had grown up in poor conditions due
to the great recession of 1931 and the other food rations during WWII and hence in this era, most
Americans were willing to ...
