Issue 2: Engaging Civil RightsThe United States was established on the principles of freedom, rights, and equalityâ€”in a society that condoned slavery and unequal rights. It has been a historical struggle to expand and apply those founding principles more inclusively, especially for African Americans, women, and immigrant groups. What have been the key barriers to progress and how have different groups been affected? How have those groups overcome obstacles? What are related current issues and how might they be successfully addressed both now and in the future?
Touchstone 3: Creating a Slide Presentation
You represent your company at a service organization dealing with one of these two issues:
- Facing Economic Change
- Engaging Civil Rights
Your supervisor asked you to research information related to the history of one of these issues for your organization to help new employees and volunteers understand it better. You will need to create a slide presentation that summarizes your findings and recommendations.
PRESENTATION REQUIREMENTS: Your presentation must be 7â€“11 slides long, not including the title and sources slides. It must include the following slides:
- evidence (4â€“8 slides with both text and images)
- argument (making connections between past and present)
