Note on Originality As will be the case for your work all year, you are expected to submit your own original work – in your own original words – for all assignments in this class. Copying is plagiarism, whether from a classmate or the internet, and earns no points. This includes chapter outlines and term/name IDs. By forcing yourself to put ideas in your own words, you understand and internalize them more deeply.

PART III: Book Report 1) Find a book (or e-book) that deals with the ideas of identity and conflict within the United States. Any time period is fine, and you can choose either fiction or nonfiction.

What qualifies as identity and conflict? Here are some topical examples: War Important people/groups Cultural/social trends Civil Rights Struggles Political movements Creation/evolution/functioning of American government Changes in how/where Americans work/live/play Economics Just make sure that the book that you choose deals specifically with American history and is at least 200 pages. 2) Create a product that conveys the important ideas/themes of your novel. You can choose any kind of product as long as it is something that pushes your creative boundaries and offers a meaningful, rich experience to your audience.

At first, they start as if they understand one another but later own they disagree over various issues. (Causes of conflict of USA) This paper thus examines the identities and conflicts in the United States. EXT. WRITERS STORE- DAY Within the New York City lies the vast camp of the United States military. INT. WRITERS STORE – IDENTITY NATURE – DAY JANE: how can we come together as the United States citizens to be united with one purpose? MOSES: from time immemorial, the various groups in the United States have never been one thing, so forget about that unity…. JANE: How can I forget and yet people are not united as they should be within the country? MOSES: Look at the books of history, you can read: Civil War Citizens: Race, Ethnicity, and Identity in America’s Bloodiest Conflict by Ural, Susannah J. It elaborates well how groupings have been in the country based either on the races, ethnicity and how this made the country have conflicts in the past…… JANE: All of us in America should be Native Americans irrespective of the color place of origin, religion or any other ground…!!! MOSES: History tells a lot concerning the past and even predicts the future so just understand it well from history. In fact, there was a time when the blacks, especially in the United States of America, did not matter in any way, constant conflict resulted with several blacks coming out to condemn the act but all in vain…! INT. WRITERS STORE – IMMIGRATION AND BREAKDOWN OF RACIAL OR ETHNIC DICHOTOMY AFTER 1965 – DAY JANE: did you not know that the ethnicity and racism in the United States ended shortly after 1965? In fact, this was due to the growth of the so-called non- Native Americans in the state to outdo the natives. MOSES: That was only meant to get vast skills that were required for the industrial development of the state… In fact, it did not go far since discrimination still exists in the places of work. JANE: from the dream of Martin Luther, these identities will soon come to an end when a black takes over the leadership in the states. (With the voice going down… she looks disappointed in the whole thing) MOSES: Are you a native or not? You look like you are an Indian and not American…! JANE: I do not see why we should argue on the fact, let us stop it there… (Jane is moving closer to Moses as if they want to fight) ………………..they are separated by those around them..! (For sure there is real identity in the United States of America)!!! Work Cited Ural, Susannah J. Civil War Citizens: Race, Ethnicity, and Identity in America’s Bloodiest Conflict.
