Do not argue that the period was both beneficial and detrimental (which, ofcourse, it was). Make sure you argue the side assigned to you. Be sure to argue HOW the period was either beneficial or detrimental. What one major issue or theme made the period either beneficial or detrimental, and for whom was it beneficial or detrimental, as well as how was it beneficial or detrimental to the nation as a whole.
In order to make your argument, you MUST use one primary source (the documents) each from Chapters 15-17 in Voices of Freedom and twoexamples from the lectures (at least five examples in total). You will be graded on the quality of your examples and explanations, not the quantity ofyour examples. Be sure to fully explain how your examples support the position you are arguing.Papers should be about 4-5 pages long (typed and doubled-spaced), but length is less important than content. For citations from the book, cite the document and page number. You do not need to cite information from the lectures, but should you bring in outside sources (which is not necessary), be sure to provide a full citation for them.
