Project #46653 - Essay III (Chapters 8-12)

Essay III (Chapters 8-12)

 

Please choose Option I or Option II:

 

Option I:  Write one big essay of about four pages, plus pictures.  Use about 8 key terms or questions from the handouts to show how America changed from the late 1700s to the mid 1800s. Please put the key terms or questions in bold so they stand out.  Include pictures for each key term or question. You can refer to each picture in your essay or in a separate caption. Please start your essay with an introduction mentioning one or two major themes you see in the history.   Please end with a short conclusion to tell how you think this material helps us understand our world better and enriches our lives.

 

 

Option II:  Write longer essays of one to one and a half pages each on four of the questions.  Include a picture with each essay and tell how specific things in the picture relate to the history we are studying.

 

1.    The Constitution.  Explain why some leaders were not satisfied with the Articles of  Confederation.  Describe key ideas discussed in framing the Constitution.  Why did leaders such as Madison advocate for the Constitution?  Why did others oppose it?

 

2.    The Early Presidents.  Examine three presidents in Chapters 9 and 10.  How did they address the challenges facing the country?  How does each one stand out as a leader?

 

3.    The Market Economy.  Explain how America changed economically in the early to mid 1800s with new transportation systems, factories, commercial farms, and growing cities.  What problems and opportunities came with change?  (Use Chapters 11 and 12.)

 

4.    Politics in the Age of Jackson.  How did American politics change in the 1820s and 1830s?  Why was Jackson such a prominent figure?  Explain a few of the political issues of that era.  How are the political events of that era similar to modern times?

 

5.    Reform.  Why were so many people trying to improve the society in the early and middle 1800s?  Explain three movements designed to change individuals or society as a whole.  How were these movements related to larger social and economic trends?  (Chs. 11 and 12)

 

6.    What would you do?   If you were around in the early to mid 1800s, what do you think you would do to deal with the immense changes in America?  Join a utopian community? Join a reform movement?  Vote for the Whigs?  Relate your ideas to specific events.

 

7.    Westward Movement.  Discuss some of the reasons people traveled to the West.  Why did westward expansion present both problems and opportunities for the country?  Examine specific events in Chapter 9 or Chapter 12, or from both.
