. Make sure to cite the source using in-text citations in MLA (Links to an external site.) or APA (Links to an external site.) style. I encourage you to use the texts that we have been reading in the class to answer the questions as many of these are seminal, primary sources which define American culture, law, and folklore. Please confine your answers to the sources provided to you in this class. Please review the module 1, 2, 3, 4 notetaking assignments for the answers for these questions, please numerated each answer, thank you.
For question 7 please can you say a good feedback.
Question 1
Before critical perspectives of American Studies entered into examinations of America, oftentimes American Studies and American History was conceptualized with a unilateral viewpoint: “The United States is ‘exceptional’ in world history and should be understood on its own ‘innocent’ terms” (Horwitz xxxiii). Using Dill and Zambrana’s “Critical Thinking of Inequality” (Module 2) and/or Ruchames “The Sources of Racial Thought in Colonial America” (Module 3), please contest the statement above from Horwitz’s introduction. Why would such a statement- that America has viewed itself as ‘innocent’- have persisted so long in American History and what according to Dill and Zambrana and Ruchames problematizes Horwitz’s statement? Even Horwitz himself on page xxxiii disagrees with this statement. Question 2
Find a quote from the Declaration of Independence; then, describe how Locke’s philosophies and ideology influenced this quote. Next, consider the Preamble to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights– how did Locke’s ideals influence these documents as well. (p.s. If you talk about natural rights, explain what natural rights are.) Question 3
Explain the difference between a Federalist and a Non-Federalist. What did each faction envision as government? In what way does this manifest in today’s politics? Provide an example. Question 4
What did George Washington warn us about in his farewell speech? Now, reflect on where we are as a country now. Have we heeded his warnings? Or manifested his fears? Provide specific examples to support your answer. Question 5
Using these three early American texts: Winthrop’s “A Model of Christian Charity”; (pgs. 12-18) Crevecoeur’s “Letter III from an American Farmer” (pgs. 23-32); and Turner’s “The Significance of the Frontier in American History” (83-98), what values can you distill from these texts that remain values that continue until this day? Choose 3 values from these texts and describe how they are still prevalent in American culture and lore. Then see if you can identify a symbol or representation for each value. (For example, freedom=eagle/flag/guns)
Question 6
Using Frederick Douglas’ “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July” (pgs. 105-123), please contrast what Douglas wrote with that of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. What rights does Douglas claim are not afforded to him? What critique does he offer for ‘Independence’ Day?
