Part 1 The Twenties

Background: When World War I ended in 1918, Americans welcomed what they hoped would be a return to normalcy. The decades that followed, however, are ones which would rarely be described as normal in comparison to what came before or after. After World War I ended and through the 1920s, a struggle ensued within the American nation regarding how best to define the nation’s essential character, as groups like the revived Ku Klux Klan fought a rearguard action to define nationhood solely in terms of white skin and Protestant religion against secularists, Catholics, flappers, “New Negroes,” and others who challenged the traditional order. Immediately thereafter, the New Deal implemented in response to the Great Depression revolutionized the role of the federal government in lives of the American people, in ways that many Americans believed violated the basic tenets of the Constitution—and others believed were not radical enough. Taken together, the decades from 1920 to 1940 may have transformed the American nation more than any other comparable time period.

    Part 2 Depression and Mobilization

    Background: The Great Depression and World War II represented tumultuous years for Americans. From the widespread and appalling poverty of the Great Depression to the horror and excitement of World War II, Americans were forced to work together for the good of each other and the nation. The experiences of these years, both the good and the bad, forever changed the Americans who lived through them.

Part 3

Final Paper Preparation

This assignment will prepare you for the Final Paper by initiating the research process and helping you map out specific events and developments which you will explore in depth in your paper. Review the instructions for the Final Paper laid out in Week Five before beginning this project. Note that for the Final Paper you will need to discuss at least six specific events or developments related to your chosen topic

For this assignment, you will choose a specific group (Native Americans, African Americans, women, or immigrants) and six (or more) related events and developments that affected their lives. Three of these events/developments must be from the years 1865-1920 and three of these events must from the years 1920-present. You will then find at least two primary sources and four other sources for a total of six sources in addition to your textbook. A maximum of two of your sources can be videos. Any sources that are not primary sources or videos must be scholarly sources from the Ashford University Library. 

Please remember that primary sources are documents or artifacts that were created at the time of a historical event or by someone who personally experienced a historical event. Primary sources can be newspaper or magazine articles, books, letters, speeches, photographs, oral histories, paintings, or any other record of a historical event. 

For this assignment:

  • State your thesis.*

  • Write one page identifying and explaining the events that you plan to discuss in your Final Paper.

  • Create an annotated bibliography with a short (one to two paragraphs) annotation for each source.**

  • You must use at least six sources other than the textbook to support your claims.

  • You must use at least two primary sources.

  • You may use no more than two videos.

    • Any source that is not a primary source or a video must be a scholarly secondary source from the Ashford University Library.

  • Properly cite your sources within the text of your paper and on the references page.

  • Be three pages in length and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

*Thesis statement: Your thesis should be a one- or two-sentence summary of the main conclusions that you drew while researching your topic and that you will support in your paper by constructing a logical argument based on evidence (sources). Please use the Ashford Writing Center’s thesis generator when creating your thesis. 

**Annotated Bibliography: To create an annotated bibliography, list each source in full APA reference format. Then, beneath each source write a one- or two-paragraph explanation of the important information in the source and how you plan to use it in your paper. The annotations must be in your own words. It is not acceptable to copy and paste the abstract or any other text. You must have annotations for all six sources. Use the Ashford University Writing Center’s Sample Annotated Bibliography to help you create your bibliography.

The paper must be three pages in length and formatted according to APA style. For information regarding APA, including samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center.

Please notice that you have been provided with several primary and secondary sources in the required reading and recommended reading sections for each week. Feel free to use these sources when constructing your assignment. Please visit the Academic Research section on your Course Home page (accessible through the Student Responsibilities and Policies tab on the left navigation toolbar) to review what types of materials are not acceptable for academic, university level research.
