Modern Boston History Class- Discussion Assignment 500 To 750 Words
This week, I want you to look at change over time in Boston. Write a post (500 to 750 words) which answers one of the following questions related to the text that you chose. Your post should contain well thought-out paragraphs and not simply lists of brief answers. I encourage you to use material from our lectures to support your conclusions
In our reading this week, Charles Trout argues that “No American city entered 1930 a tabula rasa,” “rather, cities carried into the Great Depression their own particular economic practices, social structures, and political outlooks.” What does he mean by that and how does this apply to Boston? Give examples to show your point, drawing from the readings and from the lectures.
