Section 2: Essays (80 points)
Students will write TWO essays for the final exam. Each essay is worth 40 points. Use the lecture modules on Canvas and The American Yawp textbook to develop your essays. If you use additional resources, provide citations (any format is acceptable). The work and arguments you produce should BE YOUR OWN! You should plan to spend approximately two hours (try not to spend more than that) actually writing the exam. The completed essays are to be turned in via Canvas.Focus on the chapters in the textbook The American Yawp which cover The Great Depression (Chapter 23) to The Recent Past (Chapter 30).A. Choose three events that you believe exemplify/clearly illustrate the Cold War as it was fought over four decades. Explain the historical significance of each, why you have chosen them as well as the meaning of the term “Cold War.” What accounts for the end of the Cold War? When and why does it occur? Be sure to include events, people and ideas that illustrate the end to this ideological war with the Soviet Union.B. The Civil Rights Movement gained momentum in the 1950s and exploded in the 1960s. Explain why the movement finally took off in the 1950s. What caused it to do so? Be sure to clearly define what is meant by the term “Civil Rights Movement” and the various groups (not only African American) which were participants in it. Where is the movement by the end of the 1960s/beginning of the 1970s? How did the activities of earlier generations influence movements today (like Black Lives Matter)?
