Assignment 2: Industrialization and the Rise of a Regulated Economy

For History 105:Dr. Stansbury’s classes(7 pages here)


Due Week 6 and worth 120 points. The formal deadline is Monday at 9am Eastern Time, Feb. 11.

[NOTE ON ECREE: As you know from our first paper, the university is adopting a tool, called ecree for doing writingassignments in many classes. We are using the ecree program for doing our papers in this class.Instructions on this tool have been posted.You are welcome to type your paper in MS-Word as traditionally done—and then to upload that file to ecree to revise and finish it up.Or, as we suggest, you may type your paper directly into ecree. When using ecree, you should use CHROME as your browser. As posted:Please note that ecree works best in Firefox and Chrome. Please do not use Internet Explorer or mobile devices when using ecree.”]

BACKGROUND FOR THE PAPER:The United States went through dramatic economic change during and after the Civil War, as industrialization spread rapidly and changed society. This transformation and some of the apparent abuses that developed (monopolistic practices, work conditions, low wages, arbitrary and oppressive expectations) led to an increased role of the government in regulating businesses and society. This role was heightened as government was viewed as the arbiter between business and organized labor. One can explore these developments from 1865 on through to World War II. Examine the statement below and drawing from provided sources, present a paper with specific examples and arguments to demonstrate the validity of your position.

Statement—in which you can take a pro or con position:

  • From the start of Progressive era of the late 1800s through the New Deal period in the 1930s, increasing government interventions and regulations of business tended to help the overall economy and the common workers. (Or you can argue that such interventions and regulations hurt the overall economy and the common workers.) Use specific examples from different decades—and be sure one of your examples is from the 1930s.

Here below are two sample Thesis statements—feel free to use either.Make it the last sentence of your introductory paragraph:

1.From the late 1800s to the end of the 1930s, increasing government interventions and regulations of business tended to help the overall economy and the common workers.

2. From the late 1800s to the end of the 1930s, increasing government interventions and regulations of business tended to hurt the overall economy and the common workers.

After giving general consideration to your readings so far and any general research, select one of the positions above as your position—your thesis. (Sometimes after doing more thorough research, you might choose the reverse position. This happens with critical thinking and inquiry. Your final paper might end up taking a different position than you originally envisioned.) Organize your paper as follows, handling these issues with this FOUR-PART organization:

After the fourth part concluding the paper, be sure you have the numbered list of sources at the end.

Length: The paper should be 500-to-750 words in length. [This word-count does not include any title page or sources list.]

Research and References: You must use a MINIMUM of three sources; the Schultz textbook must be one of them. Your other two sources should be drawn from the list provided below. This is guided research, not open-ended Googling.

Source list for Assignment 2: Most primary sources [listed below] can be accessed via direct link on the list.For others on the list, they are accessible through the permalink at the end of the source entry.

The position you choose or something close to it—will be the thesis statement in your opening paragraph. [Usually this is a one paragraph introduction with your thesis statement being the last sentence of the paragraph.] 2. To support your position, use four (4) specific examples from different decades between 1865 and 1940. However, one (1) of your four (4) examples must be from the 1930s. [This typically takes two paragraphs; and probably will need to have in-text citations in this part of the paper. Note—examples from different decades—including one from the 1930s. Focus on specific examples that support your thesis; you are not summarizing broad trends and periods.] 3. Explain why the opposing view is weak in comparison to yours. [The opposing view holds to the other thesis statement—the one you did not choose. Don’t be dismissive. No new research needed; just one paragraph of critical thinking suggesting why your thesis/position is stronger than that different view.] 4. Consider your life today: In what way does the history you have shown shape or impact issues in your workplace or desired profession? [This will work as the conclusion paragraph. Be succinct. Many of these types of government economic programs, laws, and regulations from this period became a normative part of our economic structure. Most came from “Progressive” reformers or later from “New Deal” leaders addressing problems of the Great Depression. They had diverse objectives, such as keeping a competitive environment for businesses, protecting workers and product safety, helping organized labor, shoring up financial institutions and deposits, and providing or subsidizing jobs for the unemployed.] After the fourth part concluding the paper, be sure you have the numbered list of sources at the end.

(Assmt 2; Week 6 paper): Using ecree Doing the paper and submitting it (two pages here) Have this sheet handy as well as the sheet called FORMAT SAMPLE PAPER for Assignment 2. Your previous experience doing this for Assignment 1 will come in handy. You get a bit better at it each time. 1. Go to the Week 6 unit and find the blue link ASSIGNMENT 2: INDUSTRIALIZATION AND THE RISE OF A REGULATED ECONOMY…. Click on it. 2. You will see instructions on the screen and at the top “Assignment 2: ecree”. Click on that to enter ecree. 3. You will see some summary of the assignment instructions at the top of the screen—scroll down to see the three long, blank, rectangular boxes. You will be typing into those. Remember—do not worry about a title page or double spacing. Start composing your paragraphs. It will start as a rough draft. 4. As you start typing your introduction—notice on the right that comments start developing and also video links. Also on the right you will it say “Saved a Few seconds ago”. It is saving as you go. At first the comments are red (unfavorable). The more you do, usually the more green (favorable) comments start to appear. You can also keep revising. 5. When you hit the enter key it takes you to the next paragraph box—and sometimes it creates a new paragraph box for you. 6. Doing your Sources list in ecree—Your sources do have to be listed at the end. The FORMAT SAMPLE paper illustrates what they might look like. But, putting them in ecree gracefully can be a challenge. a. Perhaps the best way is this: Have the last regular paragraph of your essay (Part 4) be in the box labeled “Conclusion”. Once that paragraph is written—in whole or in part, do this: Click on the word “Conclusion” to form a following paragraph box marked by three dots. (You bumped the “Conclusion” box & label up a notch.) Keep doing that and put each source in its own “three-dot” box. In other words, after your Conclusion paragraph—the heading “Sources” gets its own paragraph box at the end, followed by separate paragraph boxes for each source entry. b. If the approach labeled “a” above is not working out, don’t worry about the external labels of those last paragraph boxes---just be sure to have a concluding paragraph (your Part 4) followed by paragraphs for the Sources header and each source entry. In grading, I will be able to figure it out. I will be lenient on how you organize that last part, as long as you have that last paragraph and a clear Sources list. -----------------------------------UPLOAD OPTION: You can type your paper or a good rough draft of it into MS-Word as a file. Have it organized and laid out like the FORMAT SAMPLE paper. Then Upload it to ecree. Once you upload, take a little time and edit what uploaded so that it looks like what you intended and fits the 4-part organization of the assignment. ----------------------7. Click “Submit” on lower right only when absolutely ready. Once you submit, it will get graded. Have fun! (see next page for a few notes and comments on ecree) ------------------------------------------------NOTES AND COMMENTS ON ECREE 1. Watch the video about how to use ecree and the options. 2. Then click into ecree (in the week 6 unit’s Assignment 1 link) and navigate around. Your experience with ecree in Assignment 1 should pay off. But, once again, perhaps PRACTICE. Practice a bit—keep practicing until comfortable (you can always click “delete” at the bottom to start over if you wish). To practice, find the long rectangular boxes at the bottom of the screen. Start typing into them and watch the feedback notes develop on the right side as you type. Note that things automatically save. (You can delete after you play around some). The automatic saving means you don’t need to worry about losing your rough draft and can always come back to right where you started. Also, while it is best to type right into ecree, you can copy paste things from a document as you type into the ecree squares. 3. You get more comfortable with ecree as you work with it. The comfort level will come. 4. SOME GREAT FEATURES--The ecree program is very good at helping with paragraph development, sentence structure, and paper organization. And it provides some great immediate feedback on these things. It also helps some on spelling and just a little on grammar. With ecree, you will not need to double space or have a title page. 5. What ecree does NOT do: It cannot really judge content as per the paper and topic; it cannot detect sources---it will not help you on where a citation is needed or on the form of your in-text citations or your sources list. It only helps a little on grammar and spelling. So, don’t expect those things. Example-You could have a well, developed paragraph, but if your content is off topic, lacking in-text citations or poor on the sources list—your grade will end up being lower (no matter what ecree says). Like most writing tools one might use (Grammarly, tutor.com, etc ...

Industrialization and Rise of Regulated Economy

Industrialization after the civil war
During and after the civil war, industrialization grew rapidly and changed the society.
The civil war had a great impact on the northern and southern parts of the U.S. the industrial
revolution after the war had a great impact on the society, economy and politics of the nations

vital industries such as steel, petroleum and railroads. More technological innovations also took
place during this period. Therefore, government support was important to help the nations to go
through this transformation. Therefore, the increase in government regulations and interventions

Initially, the American industry was small. The firms served a small market and even had
