3) The Exam Questions:
-There are two (2) essay questions.
-Answer both questions, using approximately two (2) to three (3) pages for each question.
-Answer the questions in a way that weaves the questions together into one coherent essay.
-Make sure your answers employ and reference the terms and ideas covered in our course readings and lectures.
-Give examples to support your ideas and be specific.
4) Question #1
-Our Lectures have discussed the “Pillars of Citizenship”
-The Declaration of Independence (1776)
-The U.S. Constitution (1787)
-And the Bill of Rights (1789)
-What do these documents specifically argue for, what do these documents argue against, and how are these arguments in conflict and/or harmony with each other?
(Brainstorm key terms to get you started: “self evident,” why must congress publish its dealings?, does permanent rebellion clash with law and order?)
5) Question #2
In contrast to the three “pillars,” we have also discussed the fourth “pillar,” grassroots activism of African-American citizenship during American Revolutionary times.
Some of our readings and documents also exclude or marginalize other groups, such as women and “Indians,” as seen in the “cornerstone” documents.
-Why would Thomas Paine’s democracy be in favor of the above grassroots group movements, and absolutely love their ability to improve our notion of communication and citizenship?
(Brainstorm key terms to get your started: be “sober and orderly”, “walk worthy,” why is it important to “extend the sphere” of participants?
-For both questions:
-use quotes from the weekly readings and documents to back up your ideas.
-also include outside sources to support your assertions.
-Find an interesting context or theme for your essay, so you can tie both essay questions together. Successful contexts or themes might include:
-the concept of freedom
-the definition of citizenship
-the American Dream
-21st century citizenship
-entire essay framed by presidential/founding father quotations (i.e. Franklin, Jefferson, Washington)
-Use an analogy: for instance, football, where the declaration is the offense (revolution), the bill of rights is the defense (standing up for citizens), the constitution is the referee (laying down the law)
