THEMATIC ESSAY QUESTION
Directions: Write a well-organized essay that includes an introduction, several paragraphs addressing the task below, and a conclusion.

Theme: Reform Movements

Task:

Some suggestions you might wish to consider include the abolitionist movement, Populist movement, Progressive movement, women’s rights movement, civil rights movement, and the labor movement.

Gathering the Facts:

1- The Abolitionist Movement • “The goal of the abolitionist movement was the immediate emancipation of all slaves and the end of racial discrimination and segregation. • Advocating for immediate emancipation distinguished abolitionists from more moderate anti-slavery advocates who argued for gradual emancipation, and from free-soil activists who sought to restrict slavery to existing areas and prevent its spread further west. • Radical abolitionism was partly fueled by the religious fervor of the Second Great Awakening, which prompted many people to advocate for emancipation on religious grounds. • Abolitionist ideas became increasingly prominent in Northern churches and politics beginning in the 1830s, which contributed to the regional animosity between North and South leading up to the Civil War.” ~ history.com • “Although many New Englanders had grown wealthy in the slave trade before the importation of slaves was outlawed, that area of the country became the hotbed of abolitionist sentiment. Abolitionist newspapers and pamphlets sprang into existence. These were numerous enough by 1820 that South Carolina instituted penalties for anyone bringing written anti-slavery material into the state. • Following Abraham Lincoln’s election to the presidency in 1860, Southern states began seceding from the Union. Though personally opposed to slavery and convinced the United States was going to have to be all free or all slave states – ‘a house divided against itself cannot stand’ – he repeatedly said he would not interfere with slavery where it existed. But he adamantly opposed its expansion into territories where it did not exist, and slave owners were determined that they had to be free to take their human property with them if they chose to move into those territories. • Less than two years into the civil war that began over Southern secession, Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation. It freed all slaves residing in areas of the nation currently in rebellion. Often ridiculed, both then and now, because it only freed slaves in areas that did not recognize Lincoln’s authority, it meant that Union Army officers no longer had to return runaway slaves to their owners because, as the armies advanced, slaves in the newly captured areas were considered free. It also effectively prohibited European nations that had long since renounced slavery from entering the war on the side of the South. • The 13th Amendment to the Constitution, declared ratified on December 18, 1865, ended slavery in the United States – at least in name. During the Reconstruction Era, Southern states found ways to ‘hire’ black workers under terms that were slavery in all but name, even pursuing any who ran off, just as they had in the days of the Underground Railroad. • Abolition had been achieved, but the lessons learned by those in the abolition movement would be applied to other social concerns in the decades to come, notably the temperance and woman’s suffrage movements.” ~ historynet.com

2- The Populist Movement • “Throughout the 1880s local political action groups known as Farmers’ Alliances sprang up among Middle Westerners and Southerners, who were discontented because of crop failures, falling prices, and poor marketing and credit facilities. • Although it won some significant regional victories, the alliances generally proved politically ineffective on a national scale. Thus in 1892 their leaders organized the Populist, or People’s, Party, and the Farmers’ Alliances melted away. • While trying to broaden their base to include labor and other groups, the Populists remained almost entirely agrarian-oriented. • They demanded an increase in the circulating currency (to be achieved by the unlimited coinage of silver), a graduated income tax, government ownership of the railroads, a tariff for revenue only, the direct election of U.S. senators, and other measures designed to strengthen political democracy and give farmers economic parity with business and industry. • In 1892 the Populist presidential candidate, James B. Weaver, polled 22 electoral votes and more than 1,000,000 popular votes. • By fusing with the Democrats in certain states, the party elected several members to Congress, three governors, and hundreds of minor officials and legislators, nearly all in the northern Middle West. • In the South, however, most farmers refused to endanger white supremacy by voting against the Democratic Party. • Additional victories were won in the 1894 midterm election, but in 1896 the Populists allowed themselves to be swept into the Democratic cause by their mutual preoccupation with the Free Silver Movement. • The subsequent defeat of Democratic presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan signaled the collapse of one of the most challenging protest movements in the U.S. since the Civil War. Some of the Populist causes were later embraced by the Progressive Party.” ~ Britannica

3- The Progressive Movement • “Progressivism began as a social movement and grew into a political movement. • The early progressives rejected Social Darwinism. • In other words, they were people who believed that the problems society faced (poverty, violence, greed, racism, class warfare) could best be addressed by providing good education, a safe environment, and an efficient workplace. • Progressives lived mainly in the cities, were college educated, and believed that government could be a tool for change. • Social reformers, like Jane Addams, and journalists, like Jacob Riis and Ida Tarbel, were powerful voices for progressivism. • They concentrated on exposing the evils of corporate greed, combating fear of immigrants, and urging Americans to think hard about what democracy meant. • Other local leaders encouraged Americans to register to vote, fight political corruption, and let the voting public decide how issues should best be addressed (the initiative, the referendum, and the recall). • On a national level, progressivism gained a strong voice in the White House when Theodore Roosevelt became president in 1901. • TR believed that strong corporations were good for America, but he also believed that corporate behavior must be watched to ensure that corporate greed did not get out of hand (trust-busting and federal regulation of business). • Progressivism ended with World War I when the horrors of war exposed people’s cruelty and many Americans associated President Woodrow Wilson’s use of progressive language (‘the war to make the world safe for democracy’) with the war.” ~ gwu.edu

4- The Women’s Rights Movement • “The first gathering devoted to women’s rights in the United States was held July 19 - 20, 1848, in Seneca Falls, New York. • The principal organizers of the Seneca Falls Convention were Elizabeth Cady Stanton, a mother of four from upstate New York, and the Quaker abolitionist Lucretia Mott. • About 100 people attended the convention; two-thirds were women. • Stanton drafted a ‘Declaration of Sentiments, Grievances, and Resolutions,’ that echoed the preamble of the Declaration of Independence: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men and women are created equal.’ • The sometimes-fractious suffrage movement that grew out of the Seneca Falls meeting proceeded in successive waves. • Initially, women reformers addressed social and institutional barriers that limited women’s rights; including family responsibilities, a lack of educational and economic opportunities, and the absence of a voice in political debates. • Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, a Massachusetts teacher, met in 1850 and forged a lifetime alliance as women’s rights activists. • For much of the 1850s they agitated against the denial of basic economic freedoms to women. • Later, they unsuccessfully lobbied Congress to include women in the provisions of the 14th and 15th Amendments (extending citizenship rights and granting voting rights to freedmen, respectively). • In the wake of the Civil War, however, reformers sought to avoid marginalization as “social issues” zealots by focusing their message exclusively on the right to vote. • The turning point came in the late 1880s and early 1890s, when the nation experienced a surge of volunteerism among middle-class women – activists in progressive causes, members of women’s clubs and professional societies, temperance advocates, and participants in local civic and charity organizations. • On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment, providing full voting rights for women nationally, was ratified when Tennessee became the 36th state to approve it.” ~ history.house.gov

5- The Civil Rights Movement • “Nearly 100 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, African Americans in Southern states still inhabited a starkly unequal world of disenfranchisement, segregation and various forms of oppression, including race-inspired violence. • ‘Jim Crow’ laws at the local and state levels barred them from classrooms and bathrooms, from theaters and train cars, from juries and legislatures. • In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the ‘separate but equal’ doctrine that formed the basis for state-sanctioned discrimination, drawing national and international attention to African Americans’ plight. • In the turbulent decade and a half that followed, civil rights activists used nonviolent protest and civil disobedience to bring about change, and the federal government made legislative headway with initiatives such as the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Civil Rights Act of 1968. • Many leaders from within the African American community and beyond rose to prominence during the Civil Rights era, including Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, Andrew Goodman and others. • They risked—and sometimes lost—their lives in the name of freedom and equality.” ~ history.com • “The 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas ushered in a new era in the struggle for civil rights. This landmark decision outlawed racial segregation in public schools. • By the time of the Little Rock incident, the nation had already become aware of the heightened struggle in the South. In 1955 blacks in Montgomery, Ala., organized a boycott of city buses in protest of the policy of segregated seating. Lasting 381 days, the boycott, instigated by Rosa Parks, succeeded in integrating the seating. It also led to the formation in 1957 of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), in Atlanta, Ga., as a national organization presided over by a local black minister, Martin Luther King, Jr. As SCLC head, he would later become a central leader in the larger civil rights movement. • A major incident in 1960 led to the founding of another important organization and expanded the movement’s participants to include college-age blacks. In that year, four students from the all-black North Carolina Agricultural and Technical College initiated sit-ins at a segregated Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, N.C. Students from other southern black colleges and universities followed with similar sit-ins, bringing about the desegregation of several hundred lunch counters. During the sit-ins the young protesters organized the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.” ~ scholastic.com

6- The Labor Movement • “Many of the first unions were formed to gain workers higher wages and shorter workdays. These unions often disbanded after their goals were achieved. • As the nation was growing, so was the need for labor. Many inventions and innovations turned the country from an agricultural society to an industrial society. • With more laborers in the workforce came the need to protect laborers from being mistreated by their employers. • The leaders of these union movements pushed for ten-hour workdays. • The unions, most notably the American Federation of Labor, urged Congress to pass legislation to help laborers. • One of the crucial legislative acts to the union movement was the passing of the Clayton Act in 1914. The Clayton Act, in more general terms, legalized strikes and boycotts.” ~ nmu.edu

...organizations from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors of society. Mission: The purpose of the organizational psychology program is to provide students with the finest possible education for practice and for becoming license eligible in New Jersey and other states.  Comparisons with Related Fields : Organizational psychology has common interests with both organizational behavior and industrial/organizational psychology. But the field also differs from these related disciplines. All three fields of study, for example, concern themselves with such topics as motivation, leadership and group dynamics. The related fields, however, differ in institutional location, intellectual emphasis, orientation to education for practice, and employment objectives of graduates. Organizational behavior tends to be located in schools of business or management, focuses mainly on profit-making enterprises, employs conceptual frameworks from economics, sociology, and psychology, and prepares students for academic positions in schools of business or management. Industrial/organizational psychology, for instance, tends to be located in academic departments of psychology, focuses on questions about selection, performance and satisfaction of individuals in organizations, emphasizes inductively derived statistical models and prepares students for academic positions in psychology departments or schools of management. Organizational psychology, in contrast, tends to be located in schools of......

...Types of College Students You have just graduated from high school and passed the Standard Academic Test. Your application to college has been accepted and it’s your first day at class. It is most likely you will encounter three types of college students on your campus. The three types of college students are usually called the jocks, the nerds, and the normal people. The reason for this essay is to clear up some concepts regarding the three types of college students. One group, The Jocks, is the show-off type of people who puts off their homework assignments until the last minute. Once the assignment is completed at the last minute, the assignment is usually scored a low grade. The reason for this is because the jocks are always partying, going out on dates, or having fun with their sorority. The jocks wear anything to include torn jeans/shirts, work down sneakers or boots and cheap, expensive-looking jacket. The second group, known campus-wide, is the nerds because they are obsessed with books, constantly studying and learning about their interests. The nerds are usually annoying with their obnoxious laughter regarding a really stupid joke. The nerds wear a nice shirt with a bow tie, or a tie and a nicely ironed dress pants and always has a pocket protector to prevent ink stains from their pens.

Step 2: Clarify the Facts • The student agreed to work for company A at the beginning, because he did not hear from company B (yet). • The student later was accepted to work for company B; since this was his first choice he accepted that offer as well. • The student went back on his words and declined company A after already accepting it. • Career services office only found out about this after the student had reneged upon the job offer.

...college students have worked while attending school. And the number of working students has grown as college enrollment and tuition have increased. While the percentage dipped slightly during and after the recession, the overall number of working students has increased over the past quarter-century (Rapacon, 2015). Rationale of the Study Despite the fact that work is a fundamental part of life for nearly half of all undergraduate students – with a substantial number of “traditional” dependent undergraduates in employment, and working independent undergraduates averaging 34.5 hours per week – little attention has been given to how working influences the integration and engagement experiences of students who work, especially those who work full-time, or how the benefits and costs of working differ between traditional age-students and adult students (Perna, 2010). A college or university scholarship is a big help to students to attain higher education, especially in today’s society where a college education is a necessity for success. There are thousands of scholarships available, and the financial aid they offer gives a huge advantage to the student and his or her parents. But being supported by the government in paying for one’s college costs are not the only benefits included (Thomas, 2010). This study aims to discuss the views and opinions of the recipients of the school scholarship program of the Holy Cross of Davao College. This study aims to benefit the students......
