Axia College Material Appendix A Final Project Overview and Timeline Final Project Overview The final project for HIS 135 is a written essay consisting of an overview of what you consider to be the most significant events in the decades following World War II. You must select one event that you studied—social, economic, or political—from each of the following decades: 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. The event that you select should be the one that you believe had an overriding influence on U.S. culture, economy, or governmental policy within that decade. In order to explain why you think an event had a more powerful impact than other events within the same decade, you need to evaluate the following questions: How did the event you select fit in relationship to the time leading up to it? o Was it different than events that preceded it, or o Was it a culmination of similar factors that came together? Who was the group(s) of people that caused the event to happen? o What were their goals? Who were the group(s) of people that were most affected by the event? o Did the significance of the group or groups contribute to the importance of the event? o Did the significance of the group or groups contribute to other people’s perception of the event? What was the nature of the event’s effect on the United States at the time? Do you believe this event: o Accomplished the goals for which it was intended by the group(s) of people who caused it to happen? or o Failed to do that but accomplished something else? or o Both accomplished the goals for which it was intended
