Reading Journal for Hist 110:  America Since the Civil War


In the journal you will write observations and reflections on topics you find interesting in The American Promise and Reading the American Past.  You turn in the journal three times.  Each segment of the journal will relate to a few of the chapters we are discussing.  You do not actually have to write about every chapter.


Each time you turn in the journal, please include comments on at least three primary source documents in Reading the American Past.  When you use the documents, notice how they relate to the history we are learning in The American Promise.  You are also encouraged to use maps, special sections, or pictures that can help us gain insight into the time periods.


You will probably do your best work if you write about a few topics that you find interesting.  You may also devote some of your journal to sharing insights about your overall learning in the class, and how you are developing as a student and as a historical thinker.


You can earn 60 points for about four pages of good quality writing.  Please double space.  You may use any style, but please divide your writing into paragraphs so it is easy to read.


Keys to Success:

  • When you use a document, please mention it and put the title of the document in bold.
  • Relate the documents or other special features to the history you are learning in the chapter.
  • When you see a source from the past (or present), consider the author’s perspective.
  • Reflect on how the reading relates to your own knowledge, experiences, cultural attitudes, etc.



Suggested Journal Prompts (these are just suggestions):


  1. What did you learn from the documents in this section? What did you find surprising?  How does the material in this chapter relate to what you learned earlier, perhaps in other classes?


  1. What events do you see here that have shaped the world we live in today?


  1. If you did a movie set in the time period of this section, what would be the key elements in your movie? Tell how you imagine the characters, and what challenges they would deal with.


  1. How might we understand the history differently from someone living in the time period?


  1. How do the documents help you understand the era? What are some important factors to consider when looking at these documents?


  • How are these readings, or other activities in the class, helping you grow as a critical thinker?

Assignment 1.2: Industrialization After the Civil War

Assignment 1.2: Industrialization After the Civil War Final Paper

After the Civil War, the United States became a much more industrialized society. Between 1865 and 1920, industrialization improved American life in many ways. However, industrialization also created problems for American society. Consider events that took place after the Civil War and discuss ways that industrialization affected the U.S. between 1865 and 1920.

You have already developed a thesis statement and developed an outline in which you identify three main points relevant to your topic. Now you will develop the final paper in which you explore your main points in detail.

Write a three to five (3-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Introduce your paper with your previously crafted thesis statement.
  2. Discuss three (3) major aspects of industrialization between 1865 and 1920.  In your response, consider society, the economy, and politics.
  3. Identify three (3) specific groups that were affected by industrialization and provide two examples for each group describing how the group was affected. (Consider issues such as race, ethnicity, gender, child labor, etc.)
  4. Summarize how industrialization affected the life of the average working American during this period. Use specific examples and details.
  5. Use at least three (3) academic references besides or in addition to the textbook. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA style or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Identify and discuss the different ways that the heritage of slavery, the Civil War, the Reconstruction, and segregation have shaped America’s history.
  • Summarize and discuss the ways that formal policies of government have influenced the direction of historical and social development in the United States.
  • Recognize the major turning points in American history since the Civil War.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in contemporary U.S. history.
  • Write clearly and concisely about contemporary U.S. history using proper writing mechanics.


Book review;Tanzimat reforms and after.

This is topic: Tanzimat reforms and after.

Assignment; Book review, use 2 books related to my topic.

I need 2 book review, which is mean the assignment are 2 papers, each one has to be more than 3 pages.

For the Book Review:

You must summarize what each chapter in the book discusses. However, you don’t need to discuss issues that are not relevant to your topic. So for example:

Chapter 1 of the book discusses AAA

Chapter 2 of the book discusses BBB

Chapter 3 of the book discusses CCC. CCC is not relevant to the topic. [A two sentence paragraph]

Chapter 4 of the book discusses DDD.

If there are too many chapters, then group chapters together.


Chicago Regerencing Style;

Footnotes and Bibliographies in the Chicago Manual of Style (Humanities)

Sample footnotes

The rain in Spain falls in the plains.  “The text that you quoted from a source must be footnoted.”[1]  You must footnote always, with no exceptions.  Uncommon knowledge that most readers will not know must also be footnoted, regardless of using quotation marks or not.[2]  How do you know if its uncommon knowledge, if it’s something that’s not covered in class it’s probably uncommon knowledge.  “After the first citation, use the last name of the author and the page number.”[3]

If the material is from a different book then footnote the first time with full citation.[4]  “If you have to footnote from a book that you used earlier, use the author’s name and page number.”[5]  It should be pretty easy to see the pattern now.[6]  “Do not forget, to italicize the book title.”[7]  Too much footnote is better than too little footnote.[8]



Bibliography page must be a separate page!

List the books and articles you used in alphabetical order of the Author’s Family Name.  You also don’t use ( ) for the bibliography.


So see the next page.




If the footnoting format or the bibliography format is incorrect, your paper will be penalized.



If you still have questions, go to the Chicago Manual of Style webpage or ask the librarians.  http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/home.html
