Beginning in the 60’s, identity politics became a powerful force in American life. Choose one example of a positive result of this trend, using a specific example and compare that to a negative result, also using a specific example. We now have more women in Congress than we have ever had in our history. The MeToo movement has grown in power steadily, especially since the 2016 elections. Yet, women are still paid a fraction of what men are paid for exactly the same job. This is despite Federal laws prohibiting the practice. Using one example from any previous point in our course and one example from Chapters 39 and 40 to draw connections between the two women and their impact on where women’s issues are now.

How to Improve Your Score with Discussion Boards With the first week of Discussion Boards in front of us, it is a good time to pause and reflect before moving forward. If the score is the only thing you look at and moved on, you are doing yourself a disservice. Read the feedback and consider why you lost points, to prevent the same thing happening week after week. Here are a few common mistakes to avoid: Not writing enough. This is a writing class. You are expected to read and listen to the materials, analyze and write an understandable response that covers the subject and answers the questions. Use complete sentences, as these are not short-answer questions. You might need to do a bit of extra research. Cite your sources at the end of the initial post. Never cut-and-paste materials from sources. We want to see your thoughts and not those of others. If you summarize someone else’s thoughts or you use a direct quote, cite them. With assignments of this length, do not use long quotes. A short phrase is the maximum. If your response to your classmates is “Great post!” “I agree with you!” are all you write, then you will not get points. Read their posts and find something they say that you can comment on. You can agree or disagree but provide evidence to prove your claims. The length here is important as well. Say something interesting that relates to the subject. Again, if you use outside sources, cite them. Make sure your comments are organized, relate to the subject and make sense. Check grammar, spelling, sentence structure, etc. As a college student, mistakes in these areas should not be present in your writing. When they are present, go back and review and learn why you made the mistake, so that you will not make them next time. When you have completed your post, before you post it, re-read and edit it. You send your best work to be graded. Grading should not be an editing service, but a confirmation of your hard work. You are not done and should not post until you have edited your work for errors. As a southerner, I often tell myself…Self, you cannot write the way you speak. Use your formal voice, with correct grammar and diction. To be honest, I was born a redneck, but I work hard to keep it under wraps in my writing. Writing well will become one of the greatest skills you can develop, but it takes constant work. Try to check and respond to your classmates throughout the week. Read my responses to your classmates as well. You will find that the give and take of the responses will add much to your understanding. Hopefully, these thoughts will help. Go through this process each week after grades are posted. It is always about continual improvement. I often say that for any of us, there is no finish line in writing. We will work to improve throughout our lives. Dr. Mike Reply Quote February 24, 2020 7:24:44 PM ESTEarl Spaulding RE: Week 10 Discussion Professor Rogers and Class, Politics in 60’s gave us some of our most heartbreaking moments in our national history. The Vietnam War was front and center along with the Civil Rights protests that eventually led to the assassinations of both Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, and John F. Kennedy. These men although from different spectrums shared a common goal, civility towards all people and this was a battle that costs both men their lives but established a legacy for what was right. College campuses became breeding grounds for political activism and the Civil Rights movement was a politically charged cause that forced politicians to add a constitutional amendment that would remove barriers for black voters. The 1965 Voting Rights Act created a significant change in the status of African Americans throughout the South. The Voting Rights Act prohibited the states from using literacy tests and other methods of excluding African Americans from voting. Prior to this, only an estimated twenty-three percent of voting-age blacks were registered nationally, but by 1969 the number had jumped to sixty-one percent. The Voting Rights Act of 1965, extended in 1970, 1975, and 1982, abolished all remaining deterrents to exercising the franchise, and authorized Federal supervision of voter registration where necessary. Today the battle is still being fought and has yet to be ratified by all states.
