For many people, the passage of time reduces history to a series of oversimplified images and ideas. We associate the 1950′s with prosperity and conservatism; the 1960′s with social upheaval, experimentation, and war; the 1970′s with self-examination; the 1980′s with prosperity and decadence. How do you think history will reduce the events of your generation? What will people associate with your generation in the future?
Please write a 5 paragraph essay to answer this. The first should be an introduction paragraph. The second should be one way that your generation will be remembered, the third should be another way your generation will be remembered and the fourth can either be another way your generation will be remembered OR a way you hope your generation won’t be remembered. The final (fifth) paragraph should be a conclusion.
These will be printed out, graded and perhaps analyzed in class, so please do the best job that you can.
