PART I—CLUSTERS
Below are four “clusters” that contain three terms
each. Pick three of the four clusters. Identify the three terms in each cluster and tell a story
about how each of the three terms relate to one another. Imagine you are telling a friend how the
three terms relate to one another in the context of the class. You should write about 3 to 4 paragraphs per
cluster. The more detail, the more
points. DO THREE CLUSTERS.
1. Immigration
Act of 1965
Stonewall
Make
America Great Again
2. Tonkin Gulf
“Vietnamization”
“Born in the USA” 3. Roe v.
Wade (1973)
Moral
Majority (1979)
“culture wars”
4. “morning in
America”
supply-side economics
the “third
way”
PART II—ONE ESSAY
Answer the question
below. The purpose is to
demonstrate your knowledge of specific themes we’ve discussed in class. Good essays will navigate between broad
thematic answers to the question and several specific examples to buttress your
point (think: IDs). Don’t get
overwhelmed. When in doubt, think back
to the titles of the lectures you’ve sat through. The essay should be between 5 and 7
paragraphs long.
What
factors led American society to go from the “ask not what your country can
do for you…” sentiment of the early 1960s to the “Me Generation” of the
1970s? What economic, diplomatic,
social, and political events moved the United States from
one sensibility to the other? Was
this a liberal or conservative turn, or something else altogether?
Here are several other IDs. They will be good to know for your essay question.
The Greensboro Four
Black Power
Civil Rights Act of
1964
Great Society
the pill
Cesar Chavez
Title IX
stagflation
affirmative action
Roots (1976)
Watergate
Iranian hostage crisis
Perestroika
NAFTA
“The Evil Empire”
9/11
Affordable Care Act
Left-wing freedom,
right-wing freedom
PART III—EXTRA CREDIT
As you (better) know, I start off every lecture with a
song. The question: What song should I
use during my final lecture (“Your America”), and why? In your opinion, what song best describes
today’s America, and why? Past winners
include: Childish Gambino’s “This is America” (two years running), Lady Gaga’s
“Born this Way,” and Black Eyed Peas’ “Where is the Love?” Other songs frequently mentioned include: Jay
Z, “Forever Young,” Eminem, “White America,” Green Day, “American Idiot,” Lee
Greenwood, “God Bless the U.S.A.” J. Cole, “Miss America,” and Ice Cube, “No
Vaseline” (really?). You don’t have to
pick from this list.
