Assignment needed by 4pm wednesday | HIS 105 American History after 1865 | Strayer University


Different Approaches to Diversity Issues (1865-1925)


Due Week 3 and worth 120 points

In Assignment 1, we ask you to choose one  of three topic choices listed below on the subject of diversity then use  the Writing Guide located in Blackboard to write a brief paper on the  subject. Each topic explores two different approaches to diversity  during the 60-year period after the Civil War (1865 to 1925). The  dynamic between the two approaches will have a profound impact on our  history then and now.

As you prepare and brainstorm ideas for your paper, first read  and review what our Schultz textbook covers on the subject. Then,  consider the other sources listed with each topic below. It is important  that you review these sources carefully because your paper should use a  minimum of three sources from the list below.

Be sure to review the all help (documents or  video) provided by your instructor. For information on the SWS format,  see the “Strayer Writing Standards” tab on the course menu.

TOPIC CHOICE ONE: Empowering African Americans – Two Strategies

Here you will focus on the approaches of Booker T. Washington and  W. E. B. Du Bois. Other noted names and certainly different  organizations will become part of your inquiry. Washington’s famous 1895  “Atlanta Compromise” speech (labeled such later by critics) sets the  tone. One might find virtues, problems and successes associated with  both strategies. You might see elements of each in strategies of later  leaders and related issues even today.

Sources: Schultz, p. 340-2, 400-1, 404-5. See; and see

TOPIC CHOICE TWO: Getting Women the Vote – Two Strategies

Here you will focus on the approaches of two organizations and  some names associated with each. These are the NAWSA (National American  Woman Suffrage Association; later the League of Women Voters) and the  NWP (National Women’s Party). You will identify the strategic approach  and key players in each as they pursued the common goal of getting women  the right to vote. One might find virtues, problems and successes  associated with both strategies. You might see elements of each in  strategies of later leaders and related issues even today.

Sources: Schultz, p. 364-366. Also see on one of the leaders of the NAWSA; on the NWP’s Alice Paul, see; and

TOPIC CHOICE THREE: Immigration – Two Opposing Approaches and Views

Here you will focus on two opposing views of immigration and its  impact on American culture and life. These are visible in the late 1800s  and early 1900s, in a time where immigration was skyrocketing for a  long period; but significant restrictions would come into play. One view  is represented by lines of a famous poem on the base of the Statue of  Liberty. The other finds its place in laws restricting immigration. One  might find virtues, problems and successes associated with one or both  strategies. You might see elements of each in strategies of later  leaders and related issues even today.

Sources: Schultz, p. 334-5, 348-9, 358-9, 408-9. Look for events  and issues like the opening of Ellis Island, the melting pot idea, the  Chinese Exclusion Act, and the National Origins Act. Also see the poem  on the Statue of Liberty base: And see

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Use the Strayer Writing Standards (SWS). The format is different than other formats like APA. Please take a moment to review the SWS documentation for details.
  • Be typed, double spaced between lines, using Times New Roman  font, Calibri, Arial, or Courier (size 10, 11, or 12), with one-inch  margins on all sides; citations and sources must follow SWS format. You  must have a Sources list at the end; each source listed must also be  cited in the body of the paper with an in-text citation.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment,  the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the  date. The cover page and the Sources page are not included in the  required assignment page length.
  • The body of the paper should be five paragraphs and a total of  500-to-800 words in length. The 500 minimum is firm; you really have not  adequately developed the paper if less than that. The 800 maximum is a  loose guideline. The body of the paper is to be double-spaced.  Typically, if you follow these instructions, the body of your paper will  be 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 pages in length; add a page for your title page and  another for your sources list and that then gets to 4-1/2-to 5-1/2. But  the length requirement is evaluated by word count.

The paper must be submitted (uploaded and attached) in the course shell provided online.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Discuss the developments, racial and political policies, and laws from 1865 to the 1920s following the end of slavery.
