Unit 3 discussion

In this Unit we are looking at changes which occurred in the United States in the first half o the 20th century. Important issues related to the meaning, social conditions, and boundaries of freedom were debated and fought over in these pivotal years. I would like us to explore the important debates that occurred during this time period in our Unit 3 discussion. Specifically, I want us to discuss how the meaning, social construction, and boundaries of freedom varied from person to person depending on their race, gender, and/or class. To accomplish this, please choose one of the following “historical actors” from this time period. A stay-at-home mother in the late 19th century A factory worker (male) in the early 20th century A soldier (black male) returning home from World War I An outspoken opponent of the US entry into World War 1 A Hispanic child (male or female) attending school in Nebraska (1922) A family (black or white) during the Great Depression A soldier (black) returning home after World War II A member (male or female) of the U.S. Communist Party (late 1940s/early 1950s) A stay-at-home mother in the 1950s A segregationist leader in the American south in the 1950s An active member of the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 60s After making your choice, review the information found in the assigned chapters as well as the “Voices of Freedom” that relate to your historical actor. Utilizing that historical information found in the assigned chapters from the textbook as well as a “Voice of Freedom” section that relates to the actor you have chosen, discuss how this person would have interpreted the meaning, social conditions, and boundaries of freedom. Specifically think about and then seek to answer the following questions in your essay (note that not all questions apply to each of the actors listed above – think about and answer the ones that directly apply to your actor): How would your historical person have defined the meaning of freedom? On a day to day basis, what did “freedom” mean and/or not mean to your historical person? What privileges (social, cultural, institutional) existed in your historical person’s life that enabled her/him to live out her/his conception of freedom? What challenges (social, cultural, institutional) existed in your historical person’s life that prevented her/him from living out her/his conception of freedom? What threats to freedom were perceived by your historical person? How did your historical person seek to alleviate those threats? What did your historical person think were the “ideal conditions” for freedom? What actions would you’re your historical person have taken to create an environment of “ideal conditions” for freedom? Who did your historical person think was “beyond the boundaries” of freedom? Why? Did your historical person struggle to create freedom for others? If so, how? Did your historical person deny freedom to others? If so, how? Once you have reviewed the textual information and identified at least one Voice of Freedom that speaks to your historical person’s perspective and experience and after you have thought through the questions listed above, construct a 3-paragraph essay (min: 300 words) in which you explain the meaning, social conditions, and boundaries of freedom in the life of your historical person. NOTE: your essay should not be a list of answers to the questions listed above, but instead should be an academic essay constructed in a fluid way to address the fundamental issues raised in those questions. A clear thesis statement should be found in your Introductory paragraph, your Body paragraph should clearly expand the thesis statement and defend it using historical information from the textbook and Voice of Freedom except, and your conclusion should identify clearly what can be learned from your essay about the meaning, social conditions, and boundaries of freedom in the US during the time period being studied. 3 response posts (min: 150 words each) due Sunday, November 20: Your Compare/Contrast response post must be in response to a student who has written on a different historical actor and used a different Voice of Freedom excerpt. Discuss similarities and differences between your essay and the essay of another student. Explain how these similarities and differences help us better understand the meaning, social conditions, and boundaries of freedom during this time period. Your “floating” response post may be in response to a student who has posted in response to your essay (or another student’s essay) or to one of the professor’s posts throughout the Unit discussion. Demonstrate engagement with the historical material being discussed and with the person to whom you are responding. Finally, look for the Connect to the Present Question which will be posted by the Professor. After reading the question, conduct research (using appropriate search engines, library resources, etc.) in order to better understand the significance of the issues discussed in this Unit for the US today. Remember, to clearly cite your sources!
