The Proposal: In at least 250 words, tell me your plan. 1) What is your theme of topic? 2) Whydid you select that theme or topic? 3) Describe, in detail, the two assignments, to include at leastthree specific sources (One of which cannot be the textbook, American Perspectives, or mylectures). Be detailed. Potential themes of topics can be found in Attachment A. You must focusyour theme sufficiently so that you can cover the topic in the relatively short assignments.Attachment A: Themes and Topic ideasThis list is not exhaustive. Ultimately you need to select a theme that most interests you. You areonly limited to your interests and imagination within the time covered in the class. As this classis US history with an emphasis on minorities in the US, your assignments must emphasizeminorities (women, ethnic, racial, gender, disabled, for example).Step 1. Select your topic from the list below. If you would like to do something not on the list,contact me so we can discuss your idea.Step 3. Using the Zinn textbook, any of the E-Textbooks, and/or any of the resources under the“Women and Ethnic Studies” module or maybe just your own interests, narrow your topic intosomething that can readily be examined in two relatively short assignments. If you have an ideabut that idea for a focused topic which is not covered in the textbook or the other sources in theclass, contact me and I will help you. Your topic cannot be too broad.For example, the topic “Women and Music” is too broad while “African American Female Do-Wop groups from the 1950s” or “Diana Ross” are well-focused topics. “First Ladies” is toobroad of a topic. “Eleanor Roosevelt” is a well-focused topic. “The 1964 Civil Rights Act” is toobroad. “Title VII” is sufficiently focused. “Women and Health Care” is too broad while “WellMom/Well Baby and the Affordable Care Act” is well-focused.19th Amendment1964 Civil Rights Act1968 (the year)1984 election2008 election2016 electionAIDSAffirmative ActionAfghanistanAmerican Association of University WomenAmerican Female Moral Reform SocietyAmericans with Disabilities ActAny decadeAny Constitutional Amendment
