American Values

Examine the following American values- freedom, justice, democracy, equality, rule of law,
separation of powers by analyzing all of the chapter time periods covered so far. In other words, please choose
four key terms from each chapter of Chapters 17,18,19, 20, 21, and 22 for a total of 24 Key Terms and then
explain how each of these relate to the value.
Please provide an introduction paragraph where you define the American value you have selected and then
explain it general. You may provide a thesis in the introduction but you don’t need to. Please also provide a
conclusion at the end where you state your final thoughts on this American Value in light of American history so
far. I expect that you will be writing an 8-10 paragraph response. You may write each KEY TERM in ALL CAPS
or underline it just once. A paragraph is 5-7 sentences in this instance. Best of Luck to You on this!
