PROMPT

The Populist and Progressive reformers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries brought about widespread changes to American politics, economics, and society. In this essay, we want you to consider the ethics and civics of the reformers. Who were these reformers? What methods did they use to further their goals through civic engagement? What ethical considerations did they take into account in pushing reforms? 

Note 1:  Successful responses will consider a broad range of evidence in support of arguments.  Take a few moments to consider how you would respond by making a list of both “ethics” and “civics” related to these reformers and reforms.  Be sure to have a mixture of big/broad ideas and specific/detailed evidence in your argument. 

· Must be in Rule of Three format with a introduction and strong thesis statement, 3 paragraphs of the body (each with their own thesis statement – one for each of the three key points of your overall thesis), and conclusion. So a minimum of 5 paragraphs.

This is a fact based essay, you must provide specific and detailed evidence for your hypotheses.(  You must have solid evidence for each point you raise in the thesis.  Evidence is not simply a statement, there must be an explanation of how that evidence supports the thesis statement. O)

· You may only use materials assigned in this course for your essay (we have vetted all the materials utilized in this course, other materials may not be appropriate or accurate). If you use outside sources your grade will be docked.

· Don’t forget about historical geography, where something takes place matters and it may be important to your argument.

· You must use Turabian citation style in this essay; all citations must be footnote style citations (no parenthetical cites allowed, no endnotes/works cited at the end, you need footnotes).  Be sure to review how to properly cite a primary source that may be contained in another work and be sure to use page numbers where possible.
