Write a 350-500 word thesis-driven written commentary (12 pt. font, Times New Roman, double-spaced with footnotes for evidence) via Turnitin on Canvas in response to the following question:
ANALYZE THE MOVEMENTS FOR SOCIAL CHANGE FROM THE 1960s FORWARD WHICH YOU CONSIDER TO BE THE MOST SIGNIFICANT. IN YOUR JUDGMENT, WHY ARE THE ONES YOU HAVE CHOSEN THE MOST SIGNIFICANT AND WHY DID THEY HISTORICALLY TAKE ON THAT SIGNIFICANCE?
In other words, explain what actual historical events made them significant & why. You can focus on a single movement, rather than multiple ones, if you so choose. However, limiting yourself that way will require that you develop that single topic with more depth. Draw your analysis chiefly from the assigned PDF primary source readings for this week and quote or cite evidence from these documents as your basis for argumentation. You may also cite the professor’s lecture or the recommended American Horizons textbook, but these latter two sources should supplement your overall analysis, not act as a replacement for the assigned weekly PDF readings. Be sure to structure your analysis as a thesis-driven argument. Do not limit your writing to simply describing what the documents say or what occurred historically.
