Read the attached to this week 9 (FILES) “New Deal U.S. Changing” and “F.D. Roosevelt address…” files as well as other available sources and respond to the following questions:
Discussion Forum Topic for week 9: Did war remedy the Great Depression? How important is war in our capitalist society? Assuming that [we] Americans are the peace-loving nation, how do we explain our involvement in conflicts in almost every decade since World War II. Is this an economic phenomenon of free market capitalism? Explain, elaborate, and provide evidence. This is not an opinion seeking question. This is a research-based exploration. Keep this in mind.
The format for the forum:
The main post: a three to five-paragraphed narrative introducing your idea or reaction, backed with evidence, and a conclusion. A paragraph is understood to be composed of 5-8 sentences with proper citations, references, and style/grammar. The main post is always due on Thursday. Example
The secondary post(s): a free-flowing discussion engaging others’ comments, with no length requirement yet academic in nature. Evidence-based material only. If you select to introduce evidence – MLA formatting for citations and bibliography is a must. No speculations and don’t forget to cite (in text and at the end of your post). You may start a discussion link through this forum. The secondary post (s) is (are) due by Sunday night, and maybe be posted anytime during the assigned week. They are usually brief and respond or comment to peers in class.
You may choose to write in MLA, APA or Chicago for all our writing assignments in this class (discussions and essays). MLA is the most common and known to students. If you don’t know other writing styles and formats – just stick to MLA.
