Question description

1. Review your notes for Isserman and Kazin, “Why Did the United States Fight in Vietnam?” and for my lecture about the Cold War and the Vietnam War (The Vietnam War, Part 1 week). Outline for yourself an answer to this question: 

• Why did the U.S. aid South Vietnam? 

2. Write the first paragraph of the assignment in response to the question. 

Your topic sentence needs to be a direct answer to the question and might be: 

The United States aided South Vietnam for several reasons. 

You do not have to use this example sentence. To write the rest of the paragraph, you need to supply evidence from the Isserman-Kazin article and from my lecture. To do this you must: 

• Identify the source of your information by beginning a sentence like this: Historians Maurice Isserman and Michael Kazin write that the United States aided South Vietnam because or Historian Robert Morrow explains that the United States aided South Vietnam because. 

• For the sentences that follow this one, you do not need to identify your source as long as you are still drawing on Isserman and Kazin or Morrow, but, if and when you switch to your other source, you need to identify the source in a similar manner to above. 

• You need to explain the evidence in a way that makes it obvious how the evidence relates to the topic sentence you have written. 

• Your paragraph should be at least five sentences in length, including the topic sentence. 

3. Review your notes for the four documents we read in Takin’ It to the Streets:

 • George Skakel, “One Soldier's View: Vietnam Letters” • Paul Potter, “The Incredible War” • Martin Luther King, Jr., “Declaration of Independence from the War in Vietnam” 

• John Kerry, “Vietnam Veterans Against the War” Outline for yourself an answer to this question: 

• What reasons did opponents of the war give for their opposition to the United States involvement in South Vietnam’s civil war? 

4. Write the second paragraph of the assignment in response to the question. Your topic sentence needs to be a direct answer to the question. The more of these four critics of the war that you can include in your paragraph the better. As you bring in reasons for their opposition, you must make it clear which of the men is making the argument that you are explaining. You also must make it clear how the reasons fit with your topic sentence. This second paragraph also should be at least five sentences in length, including the topic sentence. 

5. Type up your two paragraphs and be sure that they conform to these rules: 

• They must be typed, double-spaced, with your name at the top of the first page. 

• They must be written entirely in your own words. USE NO QUOTATIONS. 

• They must not include any information taken from any source other than those assigned in the class. USE NO INTERNET SOURCES TO WRITE THIS ASSIGNMENT.
