discuss why America first remained neutral between1914-1917. What role did ethnicity play in America’s neutrality?

The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand was the immediate cause of World War I. But the events that led to the Great War go further back into the nineteenth century. As with the Boxer Rebellion of 1900, nationalism, imperialism, and militarism all played a part.

Analyze how the forces of nationalism, imperialism, and militarism irrevocably led to World War I. Pay particular attention to the rise of Pan-Slavism in Eastern Europe and the corresponding rise of nationalism in German-speaking states. Analyze how the alliance system contributed to the ultimate outbreak of war.

Then analyze the events that drew the United States into World War I. Clearly discuss why America first remained neutral between1914-1917. What role did ethnicity play in America’s neutrality? Then identify and analyze the specific events that led to America’s entrance into the war. Evaluate America’s contribution to the war effort and to what extent America’s entry contributed to the end of the war. Finally, analyze the events that led to the defeat of the Treaty of Versailles. What effect did this have on America’s role in the world during the 1920s and 1930s? Pay particular attention to the role of President Woodrow Wilson both during and after the war, in particular, his efforts to establish the League of Nations.

This paper must be four double-spaced pages in length (not including the References page) and utilize no less than four academic quality sources. Margins should be no more than one inch (right and left) and the essay should be composed in an appropriate font and size. Sources must be documented and cited using APA format.

Explore The Political Compass website and take the quiz. Take the time to notice where your responses landed you on the Political Compass grid and where that point is in relation to world leaders.

  • Explain at least three reasons for the rise of conservatism in the last part of the 20th century.

 Describe what you observed. What were the material expressions of the service (statues, paintings, music, etc).

For week six you have a field trip and report assignment. Contrary to what the instructions say in the instructions, there is not a detailed rubric for this assignment. Rather, you are to visit a religious service from a religious tradition different than your own and write about your experience and observations. The only exception I allow on this assignment is for visiting a Protestant Church if you are a Catholic and vice-a-versa (not merely visiting a church from a different Protestant denomination. Please see the basic instructions below.
Sincerely,
Dr. Scott Edgar

Field Trip Report

For this class you are required to visit a religious site not your own. This could be a synagogue, a Christian church, a mosque, or a temple. The purpose of this trip is to report on what you saw -normally a religious service—and how it compares to your own religious upbringing and/or current practice.

The report should give a description of the site and a detailed summary of the religious service. Describe what you observed. What were the material expressions of the service (statues, paintings, music, etc). Was there anything special going on that day (e.g., baptisms)? If there was a sermon, analyze it. In brief, make it “up close and personal.” Conclude with your personal reaction to this experience.

This paper should be at least three (3) pages in length (1050 words) with proper APA formatting. This includes proper documentation. This is a formal academic paper so pay careful attention to the basics of writing a good English composition. Describe what you observed. What were the material expressions of the service (statues, paintings, music, etc).
