Question: How does your new knowledge about the History of the United States since 1877 inform your sense of personal and social responsibility? And why do you think it’s important to know about the history of this country?
Instructions: In other words, what did you learn about the meaning of what it is to be an “American” and how might it affect your life moving forward and/or what you want to contribute to society over the course of your life.
This does not mean making a list of “civic duties.” Our course hasn’t dealt with why you should pay your taxes, why you should show up for jury duty, and why you should obey laws. Rather, I think it would be more interesting and more reflective of your time in History class if you chose 2-4 specific examples that made you see things from a new perspective or solidified your beliefs.
