Assignment 1.1: Industrialization After the Civil War Thesis and Outline

After the Civil War, the United States became a much more industrialized society. Between 1865 and 1920, industrialization improved American life in many ways. However, industrialization also created problems for American society. Consider events that took place after the Civil War and discuss ways that industrialization affected the U.S. between 1865 and 1920.

For the first part of this assignment you will create a thesis statement. A thesis statement is usually a single sentence somewhere in your first paragraph that presents your main idea to the reader. The body of the essay organizes the material you gather and present in support of your main idea. Keep in mind that a thesis is an interpretation of a question or subject, not the subject itself. ( Note: Please consult the Purdue OWL Website with tips on how to construct a proper thesis; the website can be found at:  https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/545/01/

For the next part of this assignment you will create an outline of the main points you want to address in this paper. This outline will serve as the basis for your Assignment 1.2 Final Draft. (Note: Please use the Purdue Owl Website to assist you with this assignment; this website can be accessed at:  https://owl.english.purdue.edu/engagement/2/2/55/

  2. List five (5) ways that industrialization affected the life of the average working American during this period.
  3. Use at least three (3) academic references besides or in addition to the textbook.  Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources.
