Include your chosen group in your discussion title. Based on the chapters in your textbook and the required exhibit, answer the following:
- What are some of the ways that restrictions and beliefs based on race, ethnicity, gender, and national origin shaped American society in the latter half of the 1800s?
- Assess how these restrictions shaped your chosen group’s experience of the industrial revolution and/or westward expansion.
- Explain the changes that members of your chosen group made possible during this period.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Your post should make reference to the required materials with in-text citations. Your references and citations must be formatted according to APA style as outlined by the Ashford Writing Center. You may use additional scholarly sources to support your points if you choose.
As this course uses the “Post First” feature, you will not be able to see other posts in a forum until you have posted there as well. If you need a modeled example for a discussion post check out the Sample Discussion Post.
