Module 3 Essay Assignment: Ideas, Values, and Change
Overview
Nationalism, Liberalism, and Marxism, ideologies that emerged in the nineteenth century, would shape world history and culture for the next century. It is important to evaluate their effects to establish conclusions about the values of particular culture/cultures under the influence of these ideologies. In this module, it is also important to appreciate the context of cultural and artistic change and development, and how ideas, beliefs, and practices inform artistic movements.
In this assignment you will choose one topic below (A or B).
If you choose question A, explore the distinct elements of three ideologies, evaluate what made them so influential, and then explain specifically how two of them affected the world’s culture in the following decades. If you choose question B, explore the historical and social context of the impressionist movement and critique the challenges to tradition and the status quo Manet and others represented.
You should spend approximately 11 hours on this assignment.
Instructions
The purpose of this assignment is to have you write an essay using the thesis statement and outline as a guide.
If needed, review the parts of a thesis statement introduced in Module 1.
Answer the following questions:
A) In your essay, address the question: How did nationalism change the world? How did this differ from Liberalism, and Marxism? Specifically, in your response you should clearly explain the differences between nationalism, Liberalism, and Marxism. Evaluate what made each of them so influential, and then explain specifically how two of them affected the world’s cultures that defined the second half of the nineteenth century.
In your thesis statement, your subject, your claim, and your reasons that support your claims should all be clearly indicated. Your reasons ultimately lay the foundation that would make up the body of your essay. Focus your thesis/argument with specificsupporting points for your claim.
It is recommended that you use your completed thesis statement to create an outline. While an outline is always recommended, it is NOT required for this assignment and you will not turn it in.

See if this essay meets the same requirements and organization.

Make sure you include correctly formatted MLA Style citations in your outline. You should include at least two direct quotations. You will need to use at least one source aside from the materials in your textbook or the explorations to answer this question.
