happening as the first Americans landed on the moon, you must also place the

Conceptions of the Cold War
As your Reading and
Discussions point out, one of the biggest issues that citizens and politicians
confronted during the 1960s was the Cold War, which might be defined as the geopolitical
tensions, and proxy wars fought between the United States and the Soviet Union.
Indeed, for anyone who grew up during the 1950s, 1960s, or 1970s, the Cold War
was a household topic everyone seemed to understand.
Assignment
The purpose of this Assignment
is to analyze how people understand the Cold War today. For example, what do
everyday people today think of when they hear the term “Cold War”? This is what
you are going to find out!
In this Assignment, you
will use a research method of a social scientist as you collect brief
interviews with three people, asking them about their conceptions of the Cold
War. Your interviewees can be anyone of your choosing: family members, friends,
and so on.
Below are some suggested
questions that you may want to ask:
1.
What words or phrases come to mind when you think of the term Cold
War?
2.
Did you ever study the Cold War in school? If so, what are some
aspects of the Cold War that you remember?
3.
Who were the parties involved in the Cold War?
4.
Can you name any key events that you mainly associate with the
Cold War?
Take notes on what each of
your respondents say. You will need these notes to refer to later when you do
the formal write-up of the Assignment.
After you have completed
the Assignment, write up your findings in a brief essay, which addresses the
following:
1.
In the first part of your essay, briefly describe the Cold War in
your own words. Remember that citations are needed when you paraphrase
information from sources.
2.
Using quotes from your interviews, describe how each of your three
respondents understand the Cold War. This is not the same as listing your
interview questions and responses. You must group the answers together in a
meaningful way and summarize what each person knows about the Cold War, using
quotes from the interview to illustrate your findings.
3.
If your respondents’ understanding of the Cold War is different
from the way the Cold War is defined in the first section of your essay,
explain why that might be the case. (Also, if their definition of the Cold War
is very similar, explain this as well.)
4.
You must include a copy of your interview notes. You may attach
the notes to your assignment as an appendix or submit in a separate file.
Your essay should be 2–3
pages in length (500–700 words)

Double
spaced
#12
font –Times New Roman
1”
margins on all sides
Separate
cover page and reference page
A
minimum of one (1) outside (including texts from the course, if you like)
scholarly source
Remember:
Wikipedia, encyclopedias, and encyclopedia-type sources (answers.com,
infoplease.com and such) are not considered academic sources.

Part 1: Create a timeline
in Microsoft Word that covers at least four major events that defined the
1960s.
Part 2: Write a brief,
300–500 word commentary that explains how each of these four events that you
have mentioned in your timeline is interrelated. In this commentary, you may
write about how one event led into the next, and so on, or you may write about
how one very significant event led to the other three. The way that you
describe the interrelatedness of these events is up to you, but you must demonstrate
that you understand how the events are interconnected. The commentary must be
formatted using APA style.

Discovery of a Time Capsule
When defining an era such
as the 1960s, a lot of images come to mind: the march on Washington,
psychedelic music, peace signs, the antiwar movement, the assassinations of
prominent political leaders, and so on. In this Assignment, you will explain
which of the events, people, and symbols best define the 1960s.
Assignment
It is the year 2325. You
are a prominent archaeologist who has just been summoned to a dig site because
your colleagues have made a unique discovery: a time capsule from the 1960s
that was buried long ago. Very carefully, you and your colleagues unearth and
open this time capsule. Inside the time capsule you find five items that define
the era of the 1960s.
For this Assignment write a
brief paper that covers the following:
1.
Describe each of the five items you have found.
2.
Explain why each of these is especially important in defining the
era of the 1960s.
3.
Based upon these items you have found, conclude your paper with a
solid paragraph that explains one major lesson that you have learned from the
1960s.
Hint: The objects you find
in your time capsule do not necessarily have to be material items, but can also
be events, trends, fads, etc. For example, your time capsule may contain
assassinations, the Vietnam War, or the women’s movement. Also, feel free to be
creative with the types of items that you find. For example, perhaps you have
found a letter written by an antiwar protester to the government, or a song by
famous 1960s musician, or perhaps a piece of artwork by a famous 1960s visual
artist.
The total length of your
paper should be 6 pages formatted in APA style. The first page is a title page.
Page 6 is a reference page and pages 2 through 5 are text. You should have a
total of four references, at least one of which should be outside of the course
materials. Please use only academic resources. Also, remember to use Times New
Roman 12-point font, set margins to one inch, and double space your paper.

Photojournalist for a Day
Almost 50 years ago, Martin
Luther King had a dream, “that my four little children will one day live
in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the
content of their character” (King, 1963). This same philosophy of
integration and equality is not only applicable to race in society, but to all
groups of people who had been previously treated unfairly. Indeed, the 1960s is
an era characterized by the struggle for civil rights of elders, women, members
of the GLBT community, persons with disabilities, and wage earners. All of your
communities today are forever changed due to these groups’ struggles.
Assignment
In this Assignment, you are
going to become photojournalists. Go into your community with a camera and
gather evidence to create a Microsoft PowerPoint® presentation of progress (or
lack of progress, if you wish) made toward the achievement of civil rights of
these and other groups in society. Think about change in your community that is
a result of a change in the rights now accorded to more and more diverse
groups. Look at businesses, place names, neighborhoods, public facilities,
parks, monuments, and other aspects of the built environment.

Please
read and follow the photojournalist protocol found in the DocSharing area
before doing this Assignment.
Be
sure to include and fulfill the following objectives in your presentation.
Your
presentation makes a definitive statement about the social progress (or
lack of social progress) that has been made in your community since the
Civil Rights Movements of the 1960s.
The
photos are your own original work. The quality of your photos will not be
assessed.
Each
slide supports or refutes the thesis that progress has been made in the
community since the civil rights era of the 1960s.

Caution: Do not take
pictures of children in public places or at schools. Photographing people is
not recommended because it requires getting permission. Do not enter private
property without permission from the landowner. If in doubt about the
appropriateness of your proposed photo subject, consult your instructor.
Please take a look at the
unit Assignment grading rubric in the course syllabus before you submit. Use it
as a checklist to see if you have answered all the required Assignment
questions and followed other requirements like the use of outside sources and
APA formatting.
Your presentation should be
between 4–8 slides with accompanying notes in the notes section and, in
addition, one title slide and one references slide. This would add up to 6–10
slides total.
