Prof. Eliud Peterson:
Here is the assignment for Week 3 Discussion 1 along with the required text:
Barnes, L. & Bowles, M. (2014). The American story: Perspectives and encounters from 1877 . San Diego, CA: Bridgepoint Education, Inc.
- This text is a Constellationâ„¢ course digital materials (CDM) title.
We anticipate that this assignment will take you 2 hours to complete (this may vary by student). This includes time for research, reading of outside materials, critical thinking, writing, revision of text, and reflection on the topic. You should expect the assignment to be graded and returned with feedback from your instructor no later than Thursday at 11:59PM following the due date.
Prepare: Read Chapter 7 of the textbook. Find a primary source from the 1920s that is related to the group that you chose for your Final Project and that you can use in your Final Project. You may use one of the primary sources listed this week, or you may find your own.Watch the Credibility: Critical Thinking video, and then use the Library of Congress Primary Source Analysis Tool to help you think about and understand your primary source.
*Note: Remember that a primary source is an artifact or document created at the time of an event or by someone who personally witnessed the event. Please review the handouts, Types of Sources and Primary Sources.
Reflect: The 1920s was a decade of
significant social change and social conflict. Consider the sources
of social change that occurred in the 1920s, how those changes
affected the group that you chose for your Final Project, and what
long-term effect those changes had. Reflect on how the event
represented in your primary source relates to the larger social
transformations going on. Think back on the video you watched, and
think about the guidelines for credibility outlined in it. How
credible is your primary source?
Write: Based on information from your textbook and your analysis of the primary source you chose, answer the following:
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Your references and citations must be formatted according to APA style as outlined by the Ashford Writing Center.
