You will have 60 minutes to complete the exam (unless you have been pre-approved for extra time). The exam will be open book and open notes (i.e., you may use assigned readings and your own notes only). You must work alone. You may not consult the video lectures or the notes of others, and it is forbidden to search for information on the internet during the exam. (Evidence of any of these will be considered a breach of academic integrity.) You may cite the course readings where appropriate, but if you choose to do so you should be sure to use quotation marks followed by a parenthesized indication of author and page number, e.g., (Schiffman, p. 205).
You may take the exam through Canvas at any time on August 11th. The timer is set to 60 minutes, unless you have been approved for extra time.
Once you click on the “Take Quiz” button, the timer will start in the upper right-hand corner.
The exam needs to be completed in one sitting. Be sure to take the exam in a quiet setting with a stable internet connection. Remember to click on Submit, to submit your exam. Do not close the exam window before submitting the exam. If you go over the time limit, the exam will be submitted automatically.
Contents and Grading Criteria
You will be asked to write a single essay, related to any of the topics covered in Modules 9-16. Only one essay topic will appear and you will have to respond to that one. I will provide a series of questions/prompts in order to guide your essay. As with the midterm, the guiding principles of your writing should be (a) to display the breadth of your knowledge of the relevant subject matter (i.e., this is your chance to show me how much you know), and, (b) to illustrate, wherever relevant, your awareness and comprehension of the critical problems relating to the historical interpretation of the primary evidence (i.e., this is your chance to show me how sophisticated your understanding is). Your writing must include discussion of specific evidence and examples. These should be drawn both from the assigned readings and the video lectures.
Your essay will be graded on the basis of the following criteria:
1. A clear demonstration of mastery of all the main facts needed to answer the question accurately.
2. An answer that addresses all the issues raised in the essay question.
3. An ability to synthesize information from differing aspects of the course (namely, video lectures and readings).
4. When relevant, the ability to persuasively argue and weigh the pros and cons of an historical argument.

The Vietnam War was a watershed moment in United States history. You’ve learned

The Vietnam War was a watershed moment in United States history. You’ve learned that the war spanned the terms of three different presidents, divided the nation politically, and tested the adaptability of the U.S. military. For this assignment, please write a 2,000 to 3,000-word essay on one of the two prompts below.
Choose one of the following prompts to examine in your essay:
1. In what ways did President Lyndon Johnson escalate US involvement in the Vietnam War? Why did he choose to continue increasing American involvement in Vietnam? How did this differ from the way President Richard Nixon later approached the Vietnam War? How did the American public feel about Johnson’s and Nixon’s respective strategies?
Formatting & Sources
Please write your paper in the APA format. As part of your research, you may refer to the course material for supporting evidence, but you must also use at least two primary and three secondary sources and cite them using APA format as well. Please include a mix of both primary and secondary sources, with at least one source from a scholarly peer-reviewed journal. If you use any lessons as sources, please also cite them in APA (including the lesson title and instructor’s name).
Primary sources are first-hand accounts such as interviews, advertisements, speeches, company documents, statements, and press releases published by the company in question.
Secondary sources come from peer-reviewed scholarly journals, such as the Journal of Management. You may use like JSTOR, Google Scholar, and Social Science Research Network to find articles from these journals. Secondary sources may also come from reputable websites with .gov, .edu, or .org in the domain. (Wikipedia is not a reputable source, though the sources listed in Wikipedia articles may be acceptable.)

our final paper will analyze one of the weekly themes discussed over the course

our final paper will analyze one of the weekly themes discussed over the course of the semester:
Week 1 – The Dynamics of Identity & Labels
Week 2 – The U.S. – Mexico War
Week 3 – Mexican American Lynching & Segregation
Week 4 – WWII & the Bracero Program
Week 5 – Mexican American Education & the Chicano Movement
Week 6 – Mexican Americans in the 2000s
You have the option of choosing which theme you would like to analyze. You may choose any aspect to analyze. For instance, you can discuss women in WWII, you can discuss the experience of Texas Braceros, you can analyze the significance of the Mexican American Education court cases, you can discuss the significance of the Chicano movement and it’s legacy, etc. If you are unsure and need guidance, feel free to email me the weekly theme you’re interested in and I will help you narrow down a specific topic. It should be 4 pages (FULL pages).

What is an analytical paper?
When you are required to write an analytical essay, it means in your essay you should present some argument, and then to analyze it thoroughly.
The basic elements of academic essay writing are two: a thesis and evidence, divided into three parts: an introduction, the systematic development of an argument with EVIDENCE, and a conclusion. All scholarly writing, from the most concise paper to the longest book, follows these basic guidelines.
Paper Guidelines:
Citation: Chicago Manual of Style, MLA, or APA (just be consistent)
Times New Roman, 12 point font, 1 inch margins, double-spaced
You must cite at least THREE sources. They can be readings from class or outside academic articles that you’ve found.
You should have at least TWO direct quotes from a reading. Additional evidence may be paraphrased and referenced.

Instructions: Choose ONE of the following groups of sources and write 1-2 paragraphs of comparative analysis in response to the Comparative Analysis prompt below. Be sure to take some time to think critically (and creatively!) about the article and course reading you have chosen to analyze. Your analysis should make at least one specific, arguable claim about the article and its context, and demonstrate a clear, thorough understanding of course themes and concepts. The best answers should not only be able to identify common themes within the article itself, but to draw reasonable, tempered conclusions about the relationship between the past and present, including connecting the source to class discussions and course texts
Secondary Source Options
Read and analyze this piece about Korean immigrants, family, and international grocery stores: Compare and contrast with Gabbaccia’s chapter “Ethnic Entrepreneurs,” and/or Cwiertka’s chapter “South Korea: From Food Aid to the Revival of Royal Cuisine.”

design a dialogue for a roundtable talk: Identify several historic figures highlighted in the readings/films for this unit and figuratively bring them together for a discussion that you develop about how to make a better Oregon. Your job will be to accurately reflect their views, as based in the course materials, and place them in conversation with one another. What kind of conversation would it be? Who would dominate? What would they say to one another (feel free to curate direct quotes from the materials, making sure to include citations). You get to decide where and under what circumstances this conversation takes place, who is in the audience and how they react, and who, if anyone, acts as MC. Since this is an invented premise, you can hold the event in the period under study or in another of your choosing (i.e., the present, the future, the 1980s). Please submit a transcript of this conversation that is the equivalent of approximately 8 double-spaced pages. Include a separate written statement of 250-300 words that explains how you approached the assignment.

I have provided all neccesary citations . From these citations you have to pick individuals from each of them and form a dialogue scriptof a round table conversation they would have about how to make Oregon better.

Answer the following assignment prompt. An excellent response will take the equivalent of about 1 page in a normal Word document. You will want to provide solid historical evidence behind your writing. This could become a full essay (2-5 pages); DO NOT WRITE THAT ESSAY. You must use good critical thinking skills to provide the salient information that will answer the prompt correctly, but succinctly.
To submit, you click the “Submit Assignment” button. You must use “File Upload.” Use the “choose file” button which will get you to your computer and files. Regardless of which you choose, I urge you to first write your work in a document (whatever program you use–Google Docs, Office 365, Word, Apple Pages, whatever); if you use Apple Pages, you MUST save your work as a PDF, easily accessible via the print function for your Mac. Then SAVE YOUR WORK ON YOUR COMPUTER! Often students will think they have submitted work in an online course, but then it never comes through. I will not accept re-submissions because you claim some computer error unless you can produce the saved document file. Unicheck will review your work for plagiarism, so take care to use your own voice. Lastly, do NOT use the “comments” area UNLESS you want to tell me something directly. DO NOT PUT YOUR SUBMISSION THERE.
Assignment Prompt
Each of the following questions or aspects of the assignment link directly back to the module, so if you have questions on my intent here, first review the module.
Please read the Mayflower Compact ( and this excerpt from The Puritan Sermon. (
Complete the following activities in one single document:
Provided a basic overview of “who is the author,” “when did the author write,” “what basic context for author and time/place can be discerned,” and then write a single sentence overview of content of the source. You should do this for both of the documents; if you can’t necessarily determine a specific author or time/location, each of these can be generalized. The point here is not to “nail you” on missing some name of someone from antiquity, but to see that you are reading the sources with depth and focus.
Write two brief notes from the sources in form of “tweets” of 280 characters on the bullet-point questions listed below (4 “tweets” in total as there are two separate primary sources). Note, the emphasis on a tweet is simply a way to signal to you that these should be short. No, I won’t be counting the characters. 🙂
Here’s an example of a tweet for this assignment for my Antiquities course, looking at Ancient Law Codes. You don’t have to be this creative, but this student got to the sentiment of the assignment very well:
“@Stocky_Rocky1985: The @Hittites laws are comparable to the laws of the @Hebrews by having a specific set of rules regarding violent crimes, but they have different definitions and punishments for such. Ex: just about every violent crime to the @Hebrews is punishable by death, but for the @Hittites, the majority of them are settled by paying fines or giving up property. #Exodus #NoLongerNomadic
Liked by @Moses10 and 30K others
What are two core ideas presented in the document?
What do these ideas mean or suggest is necessary for the future success of English colonization and possibly a future nation?
3. Find two other sources connected to the primary source; searching for either the “Mayflower Compact” or “Winthrop’s Sermon to Puritans” or “Puritans Colonization” in general. You only need 2 sources and they can be on either document:
o One must be from a library database
o One must be from online academic website
4. Cite the two sources in proper Chicago style as bibliography.
5. Write a thesis statement about the documents. Think of this as if you were actually starting an essay on English colonization. The key here is to show me that you understand the documents.

There are three parts, I already did part 1, and in part 2, I wrote an outline to help you. For part 2 the direction is to write a modern-day version of the Hippocratic Oath that you would like to see administered to the graduating class of 2022 medical doctors. Part 3 is the standard essay, the prompt is to compare and contrast the original Hippocratic Oath with your newly updated 21st-century version.
More detailed instructions are in the file below, along with rules for the writing assignment, my already completed Part 1, and my outline of part 2. This essay does not require any research except for the Hippocratic oath which I already have a link to a website you can use.
I know that part 2 is extra work so I will pay you 15 dollars extra.
