Themes in post-Civil War American history: impact of war on American foreign and domestic policy; the repercussions of industrialization and economic modernization; continuity and change in American institutions and values; problem solving in pluralistic society. Credit is not allowed for both HI 252 and HI 254.

This is a change of title, to distinguish the course from the newly approved course HI 254 (Modern American History). To avoid duplication in the catalog, 252 needs a new title. The proposed title matches the NC Community College system's title for the transfer equivalent course HIS 132, which should clarify transfer credit for incoming students.


Catalog description clarifies that credit not allowed for both courses.


No

GEP Categories
Humanities
Humanities Open when gep_category = HUM
Each course in the Humanities category of the General Education Program will provide instruction and guidance that help students to:
 
 
engage in the human experience through the interpretation of evidence from the past in the modern American context.
 
 
Essay questions (exams or papers) that develop an argument based on a small set of historical primary sources, each focused on a specific theme and issue. Example: Using specific evidence from the assigned documents, including the 13th-14th-and 15th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, write a 300-500 word answer to the question, What did white Southerners, Congress and black Southerners do after the Civil War to define freedom for former slaves in the South?
 
 
become aware of the act of historical interpretation, through which historians use varieties of evidence to offer perspectives on the meaning of the past
 
 
Essay questions that require the student to evaluate, critique, and interpret primary historical sources. Example: Using Jacob Riis's 'How the Other Half Lives', write a 300-500 word answer to the question,
What was Riis trying to expose about tenement living? Riis uses a variety of techniques to advance his cause. Assess his use of flash photography, statistics and the public record, and writing style as methods of garnering public support for tenement-house reform. Which technique was the most effective? Why?
 
 
make academic arguments about American history using reasons and evidence supporting those reasons that are appropriate to the historical discipline
 
 
Essay questions that require articulation of an historical argument, supported by specific, appropriate evidence. Example: Use "The Four Freedoms" speech and documents in For the Record to answer the question, Before the attack on Pearl Harbor, how did FDR appeal to the American people to justify US involvement in World War? How did American foreign policy change between the World Wars?
