Question 1: Understands how the following themes and developments help to define eras in U.S. History: • Industrialization and the emergence of the United States as a world power (1890—1918). • Great Depression (1918—1939). • World War II and the Cold War (1939—1991). • Movements and domestic Issues (1945—1991). For example Civil Rights Movements, Anti-war movements of Vietnam, etc. • Entering a new era (1991—present). Question 2: How does a nation become a world power? What are the advantages and disadvantages of being a world power? How and why did the United States emerge as a world power? I think the United States became a world superpower by establishing connections with other countries. for example, during the industrialization of the United States, Americans were very focused on building our economy through globalization. for the first time since its founding, we had more work than we knew what to do with. other countries didn’t have this luxury. Then when the Great Depression hit, the world got a glimpse of our sense of community. I believe the United States is standards on living influenced other countries around the world. this nuts Dustin to the superpower position, and only put it higher after World War II and the Cold War. Question 3:What are the relationships among the rise of industrialization, large-scale rural-to-urban migration, and increases in immigration? Industrialization brought life to many cities. They would move people from rule areas of America to bigger cities. this was because jobs were last labor-intensive and provided greater income. But this came to a halt after the Industrial Revolution, end the beginning of the Great Depression. after the market crashed people started migrating back to rule areas. this was because there weren’t any jobs, and being a farmer could provide everything you needed. once World War II was set in motion, American Factory started producing for the government. And people were rehired and moved back into industrialists cities.Question 4: How has federal power between the legislative, executive, and judicial branches been balanced or un-unbalanced in the last two decades?The power between legislative, executive, and judicial branches have been balanced throughout its creation. This is a system called checks and balances and was created to ensure equal distribution of power. I don’t feel like they’re unbalanced. I feel like there’s a misconception that there’s an unbalanced to the public. Since the executive branch deals mainly with the public, the lot of their ideas will get shut down by other branches of Congress. many people might get this confused as an unbalance.Question 5:How has the United States dealt with issues of equality and the extension of civil liberties? How has the United States dealt with the gap between prosperity and poverty? As the people, United States have dealt with issues of equality and extension of civil liberties well. Freedom of speech encourages people to get out and create the country they want. But with income inequality in the United States has increased significantly since the 1970s after several decades of stability, meaning the share of the nation’s income received by higher income households has increased.Question 6: How are the issues and problems facing us today similar to or different from those that existed in previous eras? I feel like today we have issues with foreign policy, likewise during the Industrial Revolution. I feel like nuclear tension is high due to two superpowers with conflicting views. that compares to the Cold War era. and even 10 years after the market crash in 2008, I feel like we were able to make a better recovery than the one in 1929. We’re evolving as a country for the better, but there are always going to be speed bumps.
