Identify specific examples that you think were the most important developments of Obama’s presidency.

 
Between 200 and2016, the US experienced remarkable changes internationally and domestically. By any measure, the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001, was a game changer. With that a long, still-ongoing “war on terror” began that meant military engagements overseas and increased domestic security measures. In 2008, remarkably, the US elected its first African American president, Barack Obama. He was elected to a second term in 2012.
Choose and discuss one of the following two topics related to American history under Presidents Bush and Obama:

Discuss the Sept. 11 (2001) attack and its impact.

Describe what stands out to you (perhaps from memory) from the events of Sept. 11, 2001
Give two examples of events or changes since 9/11 that you attribute to that terrorist attack. In your view, what should we learn from this attack and our experiences trying to deal with it.
Identify the source(s) where you read about these free trade issues of that time.

Discuss president Obama’s election and presidency. (Considering our many explorations of race relations and Civil Rights in our history, there is much that can be said of President Obama’s election and presidency, and it is still perhaps too early to evaluate fully.)

Identify two specific examples that you think were the most important developments of Obama’s presidency.
Explain why you chose those two examples.
Identify the source(s) where you read about these changes of the early 21st Century.

Art Primary Post 
Read the essay below by art historian Linda Nochlin and answer the question: Why have there been no great women artists in art history?
Your answer should be in an essay format with an introductory paragraph that includes your thesis, at least two body paragraphs, and a concluding paragraph.  Remember that a thesis is an argument or a main claim, therefore, your essay needs to have a clear position.  This means that for many of you, your thesis will be the answer to the question: why have there been no great women artists.  You can refer to your textbook and of course Nochlin’s essay as reference material.  Do not forget to use MLA in-text citation style within your essay.

Remember, you are not required to discuss the articles (although I strongly encourage you to do so), but you are required to read at least the news/summary article, as you may see questions related to them on the exams. Please also make sure to create one original post and respond to someone else’s post for a total of two posts per week to receive full credit.

How has the American policing role been exercised?

Assignment:  How has the American policing role been exercised? What are the consequences of the policing role?
Notes:
Assignment 3: America as a Superpower

The previous assignments focused on domestic matters in U.S. history. This last assignment explores America’s international role in recent decades. By the mid-20th century, the United States had become the dominant force in international relations. Some have argued that the United States’ military functions as the world’s “police.” This assignment covers the manner in which this shift occurred and the consequences the United States faces as a result of its status as “policeman of the world.” One can identify early steps this direction well before World War II, but in this paper focus on the period from the 1940s to the present. Examine the statement below and drawing from provided sources, present a paper with specific examples and arguments to demonstrate the validity of your position.

Statement—in which you can take a pro or con position:

The American international “policing” role developed because of the Cold War, but now terrorists or any power having or trying to get weapons of mass destruction (WMD) are the potential targets of such a role. By examples from different decades since 1950, it is clear that the policing strategy was once essential but should be discarded as ineffective and counterproductive. (Or you can argue the opposite—that the policing strategy is more necessary than ever; or you can argue for a more moderate position.) Use specific examples—two from the Cold War years and two from the past two decades.

After giving general consideration to your readings and your research, select one of the positions above as your position—your thesis. (Sometimes after doing more thorough research, you might choose the reverse position. This happens with critical thinking and inquiry. Your final paper might end up taking a different position than you originally envisioned.) Organize your paper as follows, handling these issues:

The position you choose —or something close to it—will be the thesis statement in your opening paragraph.
To support your position, use four (4) specific examples from different decades between 1950 and the present. However, two (2) examples must be from the Cold War years (before 1991) and the other two (2) examples must be from the past twenty (20) years.
Explain why the opposing view is weak in comparison to yours.
Consider your life today: In what way does the history you have shown shape or impact issues in your workplace or desired profession? (This might be unclear at first since it is foreign policy. But, super-power status does inevitably provide advantages in a global economy.)

Length: The paper should be 500-to-750 words in length.

Research and References: You must use a MINIMUM of four quality academic sources; the Schultz textbook must be one of them. Two of them must come from the online library—either those library sources listed or others. Your other source should be drawn from the list provided below. This is guided research, not open-ended Googling. You can consult the sources list by looking at the assignment instructions in your Blackboard shell
