HIST 1378

Paper 1- Due Thursday February 9, by 11:59 pm (electronic submission in blackboard)


PROMPT:  Over the course of the late-19th century, the United States began its ascent to becoming the world power it was during the American Century. Using at least one example from EACH social, economic, and foreign policies, what philosophical and ideological developments had the most impact on turning America into the global powerhouse it was by 1900? Why?  Make sure to pick three separate ideologies and clearly explain their significance in a cohesive, argument-driven essay. Provide specific evidence from both lecture AND the course textbook (Davidson, U.S.: A Narrative History) to support your position.

In developing your paper, you must have an argument that addresses the assignment question and underline that argument. If you cannot clearly explain your position, and underline that argument, how do you expect your TA to know your argument? Your paper will be penalized if you do not underline your argument. You must cite your evidence (material you are using from lecture or the textbook) with footnotes (see styles below). Any use of internet sources or texts not assigned for this course will result in an F on the assignment and may be grounds for Academic Misconduct.
