Changes in American Society Diary Journal
For this essay, you will be writing a diary entry in early 1944. Assume that you are a well-read individual who is up-to-date on history and current events, including all of the primary sources assigned for this week’s reading. In your diary entry of approximately 3 pages (750 words), describe what changes you have observed in American society since US entry into the war. Pay particular attention to changes that affect particular groups of Americans, such as ethnic and religious minorities and women. Based on events that have taken place by early 1944, predict what you think will happen in within a 5 to 10 year time frame, in both the United States itself and the US’s position in the world. Your predictions only need to be what a reasonable person could have predicted in 1944. Although this assignment is written as a diary, this class assignment requires citations/footnotes and a reference list of sources used (including internet sources) in APA or Chicago/Turabian format.
