The Making of Modern America

Please read all the instructions before offering to do this assignment Competency 1002.1.4: The Making of Modern America - The graduate explains significant international and domestic challenges that the United States confronted since World War I. Introduction: The development of the United States in the twentieth century was shaped by several challenges: an economic collapse, global war, and social and political upheaval at home. The economic collapse that preceded the Great Depression brought high unemployment, increased prices for goods, and displaced populations across the United States. President Franklin Roosevelt promised a “New Deal” for Americans, and during his administration the federal government intervened in the American economy with regulations and stimulus, changing the relationship between the states and the federal government. The aftermath of the Second World War brought the United States to greater international prominence, but the following geopolitical and ideological struggle with the Soviet Union divided the planet and threatened international destruction through the use of thermonuclear weapons. At the same time as the United States was expanding its role as an international power, many domestic protest movements challenged institutional discrimination and unequal systems of power in federal and state governments. Their victories resulted in legislation and legal precedents that changed the complexion of American society. In this assessment you will examine several major events that shaped modern American society. You will consider how the New Deal policies were designed to ameliorate the effects of the Great Depression, how the Cold War was waged both internationally and domestically, and how the civil rights movement challenged the perceived assumptions of American society. A.

New Deal and the Great Depression Describe three ways (e.g., major legislation, organizations, relief and recovery efforts) that the New Deal sought to address the problems of the Great Depression (suggested length of 1–2 pages).

Effects of the Arms Race Discuss the effect of the arms race on the rise of Cold War tensions.

Differing Ideologies Describe how differing ideologies led to increased Cold War tensions.

Effects of Cold War Tensions Explain the effect of Cold War tensions on American culture and domestic policies (e.g., security concerns, organizations, discrimination).

Examining Changes Explain two changes (e.g., legislation, cultural shifts, economic shifts) that came about as a result of one of the following historical events (suggested length of 1–2 pages): • civil rights movement • feminist movement • gay rights movement • rise of the religious right The candidate provides a logical explanation, with sufficient support, of 2 changes that came about as a result of 1 of the given historical events.
