The 1970s –well, they are hard to explain.  The work for this assignment brackets those years.

LOCATE  AND WATCH OR READ Begin by locating a copy of President Carter’s July 1979 speech, which is generally known as the “crisis of confidence” speech.  If you watch a video, that’s fine.  Please make note, though, of the words he uses as well as the tone of the speech.

ANSWER:  create a list of important events and / or conditions, in chronological order, that contributed to the general sense that America was having a “crisis of confidence.”  You will bring a copy to class.   During class, we will discuss how President Reagan attempted to/ or did change the nation’s narrative.
