Exploring the 1960s: loss of leaders

Discovery of a Time Capsule

Overview:

When we define an era such as the 1960s, a lot of images come to mind: the march on Washington, psychedelic music, peace signs, the antiwar movement, the assassinations of prominent political leaders, and so forth. In this assignment, you will explain which of the events, people and symbols best define the 1960s.

Assignment:

It is the year 2325. You are a prominent archaeologist who has just been summoned to a dig site because your colleagues have made a unique discovery: a time capsule from the 1960s that was buried long ago. Very carefully, you and your colleagues unearth and open this time capsule. Inside the time capsule you find five items that define the era of the 1960s.

For this assignment write a brief paper that covers the following:

  1. Describe each of the five items you have found.
  2. Explain why each of these is especially important in defining the era of the 1960s
  3. Based upon these items you have found, conclude your paper with a solid paragraph that explains one major lesson that we have learned from the 1960s.

Hint: The “objects” you find in your time capsule do not necessarily have to be material items, but can also be events, trends, fads, etc. For example, your time capsule may contain assassinations, the Vietnam War, or the women’s movement. Also, feel free to be creative with the types of items that you find. For example, perhaps you have found a letter written by an antiwar protester to the government, or a song by famous 1960s musician, or perhaps a piece of artwork by a famous 1960s visual artist.

The total length of your paper should be 7 pages formatted in APA style. The first page is a title page. The seventh page is a reference page. Pages 2 through 6 are text. You should have a total of four references, at least one of which should be outside of the course materials. Please use only academic resources. Also, remember to use Times New Roman 12 font, set margins to one inch, and double space your paper.
