This class is referring from the American History from 1940’s through the 1960’s
For the first assignment the prompt needs to be 4 pages
The first prompt is:
documents/document/ho-chi-. ACCESS THIS LETTER FROM HO CHI MINH TO PRESIDENT TRUMAN. THEN WRITE A RESPONSE FROM TRUMAN TO HO CHI MINH IN WHICH HE EXPRESSES HIS SYMPATHY WITH VIETNAMâ€™S DESIRE TO BECOME A REPUBLIC INDEPENDENT FROM THE FRENCH OR ANY OTHER COLONIAL POWER AND PROMISES TO HELP THEM. THE LAST SECTION OF YOUR PAPER SHOULD BE A COUNTER-FACTUAL IN WHICH YOU DESCRIBE WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED (ESPECIALLY IN THE US) IF TRUMAN HAD, IN FACT RESPONDED POSITIVELY. minh-truman
This prompt requires a thesis statement which should be bolded in the intro paragraph.
The second prompt also needs to be 4 pages
The second prompt is:
I have stated that an alternate title for this course could be: America Since Television. Write a well-organized essay describing the impact of television on U.S. history since its popularization in the late Forties. Be sure to include both fiction and non-fiction offerings.
This also needs a thesis statement that needs to be bolded in the intro paragraph
I heard someone in my class say this is a good thesis statement this is not mine but it is something that the essay should be based off of. The thesis statement that I found that needs to be changed in different words is:
They often reinforce the status quo in television moved essential in exposing the injustices in American society and bringing attention to social justice
Make sure to rewrite this thesis statement in your own words and convey how TV showed a false sense of what was really happening on in America during the 1940’s-1960’s and how poor families mainly African Americans were suffering and there was no social justice.
Also fiction and non fiction offerings refer to cartoons and family home tv shows
For both of these prompts there is a book that should be used for citations. The book is called:
The Unfinished Journey by Chafe
Make sure to use evidence from this book in each body paragraph for the two prompts. And after quoting the book it should be cited as (Chafe, p#)
Also my professor allowed for citing her own notes from class. We are allowed to cite her notes as evidence in each body paragraph and cited as (Corey, Lecture) and there is no specific lecture so when citing my notes just use (Corey, Lecture).
The link to my notes is here:
It is very important to only use quotes from the lecture notes and the book The Unfinished Journey. Because of this there is no need for a bibliography.
If you can’t find the book online let me know I have a hard copy and what I can do is send pictures of entire chapters it may be annoying but that’s the only way I can think of. If that doesn’t work either it is not recommended but outside sources may be used but they must be reputable and factual and if using outside sources there is gonna be a need for a bibliography.
If you have any questions please ask as many as you may need. I will frequently be on the chat page and please ask as many questions as possible so I can help answer them for these essays and have them come out amazing. I obviously want to make this easy as possible for you the writer.
