HIS 204 Week 1 DQ 1 The History of Reconstruction
The History of Reconstruction. Many Americans
like to imagine the history of their nation as
one of continual progress. While acknowledging
that not all persons and groups enjoyed equal
rights at all times, Americans often take it for
granted that American history moves in only one
direction toward greater rights, greater
freedom, and greater equality. This perspective
makes it difficult for many Americans to
understand the Reconstruction period and to place
it in a broader historical narrative. The problem
they face is that African Americans from roughly
1867 to 1875 enjoyed far more political influence
and equal rights than they ever had before, or
ever would again until the end of the modern
Civil Rights Movement almost a century later.

HIS 204 Week 1 DQ 2 The Industrial Revolution
The Industrial Revolution. Too much corporate
influence in politics the specter of socialist
policies undermining capitalism and individual
freedoms a middle class in apparent decline
waves of immigration which threatened to alter
the character of American society new
technologies which introduced new social problems
as well as offering new opportunities and a
general sense that the common people had lost
control of their government To a sometimes
surprising degree, the issues which troubled
Americans in the last quarter of the nineteenth
century resembled our own.

HIS 204 Week 2 DQ 1 The Progressive Movement
The Progressive Movement. The Progressive
Movement was a complicated, even contradictory,
phenomenon which sometimes pushed for the
expansion of popular democracy while at other
times, or even simultaneously, advocated that the
functions of government be placed in the hands of
experts. The movement addressed some of the worst
domestic problems of its time, but its mainstream
largely ignored widespread and worsening racial
injustices. Review the Progressive Movement of
the first two decades of the twentieth century,
and generalize what you take to be its core
principles.

HIS 204 Week 2 DQ 2 America's Age of Imperialism
Americas Age of Imperialism. Americas Age of
Imperialism was relatively short-lived, and
somewhat anomalous in terms of overall US
history. For a few brief years in the 1890s, the
US aggressively pursued overseas colonies,
holding on to those colonies even in the face of
indigenous resistance and, unlike its handling of
continental territories, offering the new
colonies no pathway toward equal statehood and
citizenship. The Filipino Insurrection of 1899 to
1902 provides a particularly unsettling episode
in terms of how Americans generally like to
remember their past. Having driven the Spanish
out of the Philippines, the US ignored the
Filipinos demand for independence

HIS 204 Week 2 Paper The Progressive Presidents
The Progressive Presidents. The presidential
election of 1912 was the most Progressive in US
history with the two frontrunners, Theodore
Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, both espousing
Progressive philosophies (and the most
conservative candidate, William Howard Taft,
being in many ways a Progressive himself).
Although both Wilson and Roosevelt were
Progressive, their attitudes toward Progressivism
differed, at least in theory. This paper will
provide an opportunity to review the complex
nature of Progressivism, and to explore how
presidents policies while in office often differ
from their rhetoric on the campaign trail.

HIS 204 Week 3 DQ 1 Normalcy and the New Deal
Normalcy and the New Deal. When the First World
War ended, Americans welcomed what they hoped
would be a return to normalcy. The decades that
followed, however, are ones which would rarely be
described as normal, in comparison to what came
before or after. During these decades, a struggle
ensued within the American nation regarding how
best to define the nations essential character,
as groups like the revived Ku Klux Klan fought a
rearguard action to define nationhood solely in
terms of white skin and Protestant religion
against secularists, Catholics, flappers, New
Negroes, and others who challenged the
traditional order.

HIS 204 Week 3 DQ 2 The End of Isolation
The End of Isolation. In 1938, in Munich, the
British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain made a
deal with Adolph Hitler allowing Nazi Germany to
annex Czechoslovakias Sudetenland. Hailed as a
hero for his diplomacy at the time, Chamberlain
is now widely reviled for his policy of
appeasement to Nazi aggression. Yet one year
later, Chamberlain would lead Britain into war
against Germany in defense of Poland once it
became clear that appeasement had failed. By
contrast, the US did little to halt Hitlers
initial expansion, and entered into the war only
gradually, attempting, until attacked directly,
to sway the outcome without going to war itself.

HIS 204 Week 3 Final Paper Preparation (Native
American history)
Final Paper Preparation. This assignment will
prepare you for the Final Paper by initiating the
research process and helping you map out specific
events and developments which you will explore in
depth in your paper. Review the instructions for
the Final Paper laid out in Week Five before
beginning this project. Note, that for the Final
Paper you will need to discuss at least six
specific events or developments related to your
chosen topic, three from before 1930 and three
from after 1930. For this assignment, you will
choose your topic and the six (or more) related
events and developments which you will explore.
You will then find one scholarly source related
to each event or development. In a paragraph or
two at the beginning of the paper, identify the
events and developments and explain why you
believe they are significant.

HIS 204 Week 4 DQ 2 Cold War
Cold War. After the Second World War, the US
embarked on what came to be known as the Cold War
against the Soviet Union. Although the two sides
never fought against each other directly, the
Cold War nonetheless erupted into violence at
times in places like Vietnam, Korea, and
Afghanistan. As the US grew more activist and
interventionist in its foreign policy, the
domestic government also grew in power and in its
role in the peoples lives.

strategy of flexible response?

HIS 204 Week 5 DQ 1 The Age of Reagan
The Age of Reagan. Most of us have lived much of
our lives in the Age of Reagan, a period which
dates from 1980 and which may still be ongoing
today. Historians increasingly agree that the
election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 represented a
revolution in American society and,
particularly, its politics. Review Reagans
presidential career to explain what about it
precisely was so revolutionary. Compare his
approach to politics and foreign affairs with
those of his predecessors, and assess the ways
that his successors either built upon or
attempted to reverse his legacy. Explain why so
many Americans opposed Reagans policies and
those of his successors.

HIS 204 Week 5 DQ 2 The Lived Experience of
Ordinary People
The Lived Experience of Ordinary People.
Especially since the 1960s, historians have
sought to understand history not just as a series
of major events presided over by generals and
statesmen, but also as the lived experience of
ordinary people. For this last discussion, begin
by reflecting on your own past with an eye toward
how American society has changed over the course
of your life. In your response, focus less on
major political or international events than on
the ways day-to-day life in America is different
today from what it was when you were younger. You
might consider such factors as the cost of goods
and services, the forms of entertainment, means
of communication, and so forth.

HIS 204 Week 5 Final Paper Native American
history
Focus of the Final Paper Understanding history
can be more difficult than many people imagine.
Historians concern themselves not only with what
happened but with why it happened. They analyze
and assess a variety of sources, including
primary sources (ones created during the time
period the historian is examining) and secondary
sources (ones written by other historians after
the period), to create their own interpretations
of the past. For the Final Paper, students will
not only learn about the past, but also
experiment with the interpretive, analytical
methodologies of the historian.
