Resources: Appendix A
· Write a 1,750- to 2,050-word essay in which you address the following points:
· Choose one social, economic, or political event that you studied from each of the five decades following World War II—1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s—that you think had a more powerful effect on the American people than other events within the same decade.
· Introduce the paper with a short explanation of the overall purpose of the final project.
· Conclude the paper by hypothesizing changes you anticipate to happen in the U.S. social, economic, or political climate of the next ten years. Explain the reasons for your hypothesis.
· Review the Electronic Reserve Reading for this course, located on your student Web site, to get an idea of how you might present your hypothesis.
Notice how you may trace the thread of a topic through the last five decades as you lead up to your prediction. Notice also how you may make personal comments—the hypothesis is an opinion, so you may show your bias. You are not expected to write as much as the supplemental reading, but it might be helpful.
· Include at least two references in each decade’s section of your paper.
· Organize all sections into a unified, final paper with subtitles for each section.
· Refer to Appendix C to verify that you have written a collegiate paper.
· Format your paper according to APA standards.
