Assignment Prompt

You have lived through a turbulent period in American history and are a member of what will later be called “the greatest generation.” Your childhood was during the Roaring Twenties, you were a teenager in the Great Depression and came of age during WWII. You are now a 30-something living in the 1950s. Your oldest child (one of the first of the baby-boomer generation) has asked you to tell him the story of your life, what it was like for you and your segment of society “in the old days.” You decide to write him an essay which you hope he will keep and pass down to future generations. In this essay you want to give him a sense of how things changed over time for you and your segment of society. You will discuss social, political, and economic changes that you lived through (1920s, 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s) and discuss whether or not you believe things became better, worse, or stayed the same for you and your group. You will also want to give him a sense of the history you lived through, so put these changes into their historical context by making reference to specific events, people, laws, etc.

Be sure to use the Rule of Three in this assignment. You should have an intro with thesis statement, at least three paragraphs in the body (one old for each point of the thesis) and a conclusion. The best way to organize is to use political, economic, and social as your thesis points.

This essay should be a minimum of 5 paragraphs long. The first paragraph is your introduction with thesis statement. The second through fourth paragraphs (the body) will discuss social, economic, and political reforms (you should organize in this way, minimum of one paragraph on economic, one paragraph on social, and one on political). Each paragraph of the body must have its own thesis statement and there should be at least three pieces of evidence (properly cited in Turabian format) in support (the “rule of three” for analytical writing). The last paragraph is the conclusion.

You will be using modified Turabian FOOTNOTES in this assignment. You must provide the footnote, including locating information, for each of your three pieces of evidence per body paragraph (so a minimum of 9 footnotes required).
