Over the last few modules, we have explored the ways in which the United States emerged as a leader in the world in the 20th century and beyond. We have looked at how events in the United States were inter-connected with those occurring simultaneously throughout the world.
Reflect on these ideas as well as your own learning experiences over the last few modules. In a 1-2 page paper:
- Select one era covered during the course that you found interesting.
- Explain why you chose this era. If you had a choice to go back in time, would you want to live in this time period?
- Compare and contrast your current views on the world today with the era that you’ve chosen. In your opinion, has history changed for the better or worse?
Be sure to support your narrative with sources cited in APA format.
