After giving general consideration to your readings and your research, select one of the positions above as your position—your thesis. (Sometimes after doing more thorough research, you might choose the reverse position. This happens with critical thinking and inquiry. Your final paper might end up taking a different position than you originally envisioned.) Organize your paper as follows, handling these issues:
Part 1: Introductory paragraph with thesis statement.
Part 2: FOUR EXAMPLES–To support your position, use four specific examples from different decades between 1950 and the present. However, two examples must be from the Cold War years (before 1991) and the other two examples must be from 1991 to the present.
Part 3: Explain why the opposing view is weak in comparison to yours. The opposing view is the thesis statement you did not choose.
Part 4: Legacy today and conclusion. Consider your life today: In what way does the history you have shown shape or impact issues in your workplace or desired profession? This might be easy if you work in cyber security, criminal justice, IT, etc. You can consider the legal impact of terrorism on the justice system, privacy issues, etc. Even a business must now plan accordingly. Every profession now must have security safeguards, plan what to do with data, etc
Length: The paper should be 500-to-750 words in length.
Research and References: You must use a MINIMUM of four quality academic sources; the Schultz textbook must be one of them. The others must come from the list provided on the instructions sheet, or they must be quality sources you find in the university’s online library. This is guided research, not Googling.
