AMS 205 Argument Paper Two
DUE: Tuesday, April 22 at the beginning of class
Address the question below in roughly 800-1000 words (3 double-spaced,
type-written pages with 12 point font, one-inch margins). Make sure to
include a clear thesis statement and use examples that are derived from class
material and assigned readings. Material from reading must be cited using
your format of choice. Generally, the basic format (Author, page number) is
sufficient. You must use at least two written sources from class and evidence
from “The Pruitt Igoe Myth” or a third written source. There won’t be works
cited page because all your citations will be from the class material. Be sure to
proofread your papers as grammar, spelling, and punctuation will be assessed.
The question to answer follows.
In the aftermath of World War Two, American cities changed rapidly and dramatically –
from largely singular cities to metropolitan regions with cities and suburbs. Their
geographies were forever altered by a number of social, political, and economic forces.
Some citizens benefitted, while others were left behind. The question is this: what concept
best describes the geographic changes that cities underwent, and what social, economic,
and political factors allowed for those changes to occur? In your concluding paragraph
please make sure to address the ramifications of these changes on people living in cities
and the suburbs.
