This week we have no new reading or subjects. Over the 11-week course, we have covered many events and issues that arose in the United States between 1865 and today. From the era of Reconstruction, the Progressive era and Jim Crow, the roaring 20s and the Great Depression, the Cold War and Civil Rights struggles, on through the age of Information to now. We have seen many examples of people struggling for rights and freedoms and people having to adapt to significant changes in the economy, technology, laws, and society. We have seen military engagements impact lives and our country. Think about these various periods and challenges.
Please do the following two things for your main post in our last discussion—this reflection:
- Choose a specific historical event or example and reflect on the “long range” effect of it on your own life.
- Choose another historical event and reflect on the “long range” impact on the modern workplace—perhaps on the profession you have chosen.
