Discuss the impact industrialization had on american society between

Hint: Think broadly here as you scattershoot/concept map your essay before writing.  Are  there particular social or ethnic groups that gained or lost out? What  types of laws did the government promulgate that impacted society? How  did family, work, and community change? How did technological  advancements better or worsen American life? What new activities did  Americans take up? What societal activities faded away? How did  Americans respond politically to societal changes?  How did society  change over time between 1865 and 1918? Does geographic location or  urban/rural make a difference? 

Note that you need not answer all of these questions in your essay,  they are just questions to consider as you put forth your best answer to  the prompt.

Requirements for the Midterm Essay 


  • Must be in Rule of Three format with a introduction and strong  thesis statement, 3 paragraphs of the body (each with their own thesis  statement – one for each of the three key points of your overall  thesis), and conclusion. So a minimum of 5 paragraphs.
  • This is a fact based essay, you must provide specific and detailed evidence for your hypotheses.
  • You must utilize a minimum of three primary sources from the assigned materials as evidence in your essay
  • You must utilize a minimum of three secondary sources from the assigned materials as evidence in your essay
  • You may only use materials assigned in this course for your essay  (we have vetted all the materials utilized in this course, other  materials may not be appropriate or accurate)
  • DO NOT quote secondary sources
  • You may briefly quote a primary source (a phrase or a  sentence) before immediately analyzing the relevance of the quote – a  quote cannot stand alone as explanation or evidence
  • You must consider change over time in this essay
  • You must consider geography in this essay (where something takes place matters)
  • You must use Turabian citation style in this essay; all citations  must be footnote style citations (no parenthetical cites allowed, no  endnotes/works cited at the end, you need footnotes).  Be sure to review  how to properly cite a primary source that may be contained in another  work and be sure to use page numbers where possible.
  • 12 pt type, 1 inch margins, double-spaced

How the Assignment is Graded 


The assignment is worth up to 50 points.  The following factors are taken into account when we grade:

RULE OF THREE THESES –  Do you have a well thought out and clear overall thesis in your  introduction? Do you have a thesis statement for each of your three  paragraphs of the body? Do the paragraphs of the body follow the overall  thesis statement?

EVIDENCE –  You must have solid evidence for each point you raise in the thesis.   Evidence is not simply a statement, there must be an explanation of how  that evidence supports the thesis statement. 

Example:  If you were writing a paragraph on the causes of the Cold War, you might use the Baruch Plan as an example.  Simply writing “the Baruch Plan  was a cause of the Cold War” in your paragraph would not be enough and  would not be analytical. However, the following sentences do provide a  good analysis of this piece of evidence:

“One  cause of the Cold War was the failure of the United States and the  Soviet Union to agree upon a plan for nuclear disarmament after World  War II.  The Baruch Plan,  presented by the US, would maintain the American atomic weapon  advantage for the foreseeable future.  This played into Stalin’s  suspicions of the Americans’ true motivations toward the USSR.”


Is  your argument clear and does it make sense?  Is it historically  accurate?  Does your evidence prove your point? Does your analysis  answer the prompt?  Have you considered change over time and geographic  differences in your essay? 


Have you properly cited? Have you used Turabian/Chicago?  You must also FOOTNOTE.  Parenthetical cites are NOT allowed.


Is  the essay up to college standards for grammar and spelling? Is it an  analytical essay? Does it meet minimum length and formatting  requirements?
