Remember to respond to at least one other student's post!
I'm just going to assume that this is referring to an assignment that shall be assigned tomorrow… well, let's see if I can't get a head start!
I thinjk the new technology, higher status for all people, new warfare, and the independence for many countries made it the Modern Period truly modern.
When people started going towards the modern materials and ideas. Like the Enlightenment or Industrial Revolution.
I think that one thing that truly makes the modern period modern is the rights that women have today. Today women have so many rights that they didn't used to have such as the right to vote and the fact that they are able to have a jobs at the same level as men. Just the fact that we had a women running for vice president in the 2008 Presidential election shows that the modern period is so much different than the other periods when it comes to womens' rights.
thats wright girl power. hahah but it realy is great how far we have come in womens rights seens the begining
the many inventions that helped make life better in the long run. also the increasing right for women.
I think that Industrialization made the Modern Period "Modern". Railroads and canals linked urban areas. There was for the first time people living in cities. The workforce was looked at differently, a time of great social change. I think this was the kick start of how society was shaped for today.
I posted on my hero, Barack Obama. This does get boring towards the end, though, as I got tired.
Obama does make the Modern period modern because he is the president today.
Lauren, that was a great remark hahaha
did it really need to be so long?
And he's my hero.
You basically wrote a novel on Obama Chris lol sadly you spelled his name wrong on the page =/
He is one of my heroes ( in a way…) too!
How did I misspell his name?
I think the Women's revolution made the modern period truly "modern" because it is what is happening today in this world and it shows how the society has changed and become "modern".
ya, i agree, women make up so much of society and have really changed it as well.
Yeah me too
i agree that women have made big differences in society
that's what i said! i totally agree with you =]
Going Green made some of the modern period modern because this is truly the first century (21st) that focused and started paying attention to the planet.
YES be green, be a tree hugger not a tree killer and i agree
Kathy Griffin's home is located in the Santa Monica area of Los Angeles, CA. Her home cost roughly $4.5 million and is very green. Go Kathy? Yes.
Overcoming racial segregation in general (whether it be with the ending of apartheid, the rise of MLK, the election of Obama, or the right to vote) took up a vast majority of the Modern Period, and the integration of schools and, more broadly, society made the period truly "modern."
Although those deep-rooted issues are still prevalent today, the improvements made thus far have certainly aided in defining the Modern Period.
I think that new feminism made the modern period "modern".
I think the expansion of music, science, technology, and the arts make it more modern because it is what we use now and the technologies and sciences have help societies today.
Martin Luther King Jr. made the modern period modern. I mean, he spoke against segregation and spoke up for black rights. He is one of the most influential people of the modern period, if not the most.
I agree that he was an extremely influential person during the modern period, but i wouldn't say that he was the most influential person.
I think that the formation of the United Nations was what really made the Modern Period modern.
I agree with whoever said women's position in society changing is what made the modern period "truly modern." Since the beginning of time, women have been subordinate to men, and after WWI it changed. While the men were off, the women were given the chance to step up to the plate and they did. They showed the world they had what it takes to work as hard as men. These events have helped shape present day outlooks on women. This is why this has made the modern period "truly modern."
And Chris, your excerpt on Obama really is long. I agree with Michael on it being shorter.
It's not an excerpt- I copied and pasted nothing. If I had, I would have given credit for it.
Hmm… Michael? Never heard of him.
