Prompt 1 On August 6, 1965, during the height of the Civil Rights Movement, President Lyndon Johnson signed The Voting Rights Act of 1965, which prohibited racial discrimination in voting. Although the Fifteenth Amendment had already given male African American citizens the right to vote, many Southern states had various forms of intimidation and violence, including literacy tests, to suppress those votes. The Voting Rights Act finally provided a means to fight voter restrictions and encourage more African Americans to get to the polls. Si nce its passing, the Voting Rights Act has been viewed as one of the most important pieces of legislation in American history. Looking back at it now, did the Voting Rights Act meet the goals that it had set? Is voter suppression still a problem today? If so, what methods are now used to fight it? If not, how does the country now guarantee that all citizens can have an equal say in the government? Prompt 2 According to Gallup, an American research-based consulting company known for its public opinion polls, the worry of global warming is at an eight-year high. A recent poll shows about 70% of Americans believe that global warming is real and the effects of it have already begun. However, even within these statistics, there is still a great divide between those who think that global warming is an important issue, what money should be invested into it, what effects it has, or even what exactly is causing it. Looking closer at the issue of climate change, do you believe that it is an important problem in our country to address? Why or why not? What measures, if any, should be taken to help with global warming? What role should the United States take when it comes to climate change? Or has the U.S. invested too much time and money into climate change, ultimately costing jobs and development? Pick a side and present evidence regarding this issue. Prompt 6 Since the start of the 21st century, the increasing rate of technological advancement has led to new breakthroughs in computing and robotics, both creating a demand for new engineering jobs, but also replacing many existing jobs with automation. Consider the socio-economic ramifications of this technological revolution – how have new technologies affected the economy in the U.S. and globally? How does modern connectivity affect how people work? The 21st century isn’t the first time technology has replaced and created new jobs. Analyze the historical precedence for this shift -when technology advanced and displaced workers in the past, how did they respond and adapt?
