    Essential Question #3
    How do you reconcile your thoughts with the text presentation and my evaluation that most of the New Frontier had been stalled in Congress at the time of his death and only came to fruition as a result of his death? Mr. E.

    Essential Question #2
    Kennedy felt that segregation was a bad thing, so him and his administration worked towards abolishing it. He impacted the American Dream for all minorities by giving them equal opportunities as whites to succeed. He passed the housing act increasing minimum wage, he outlawed poll taxes, and passed the labor standards act allowing every American equal pay without discrimination. Kennedy helped everybody in need by supplying enough aid to get everybody striving to the American Dream.

    Essential Question #1
    Civil rights was an effort made to "equalize" the American Dream. Blacks were given roles in the government, and the right to vote. Integration was coming into schools and work places. Organizations were started, like the NAACP to help African Americans change their lives for the better. Although the transition was not smooth, blacks were given equal opportunities as whites to achieve their American Dream.

    Essential Question #3
    I agree with Devon, Prsident Kennedy has a hug impact on the American Dream. Most American citizens really respected Kennedy for what he has done to help America. Kennedy did a lot to support the nations American Dream, so Americans put their trust in him. They looked up to him, and when he died everything came crashing down on the people. Their hopes, dreams, morals, and everything they believed in. Everything they were looking forward to was no longer in their reach after JFK's death; therefore their vision of the American Dream was set aback for a sufficient amount of time.

    Dougs Works Cited

    Kauffman, Jill. “Kennedy Assassination.” Issues & Controversies in American History. Infobase Publishing,1 Nov. 2008. Web. This site and the readings that I took from it were the most helpful resources that I had while researching evidence to back up my thesis. This resource gave me both sides of the argument that Kennedy had been shot be a second gunman and it also gave facts to back up the arguments. I always like to see both sides of the argument and with Issues & Controversies in American History, I could do this. This site also gave me good information to back up the theory of a second shooter. I know this is a reliable source because Infobase publishing is a reputable database. I also have confidence in the High School Library staff for putting only reputable resources on the Student Resource Center.

    “Kennedy Assassination - Timeline.” Issues & Controversies in American History. Infobase Publishing, 1 Nov. 2008. Web. I used this as one of my three medium when presenting. I feel that it gives the audience a good framework to build their own beliefs on as well as to give them an understanding of the situation to hopefully get them to see the plausibility of another gunman. I know this is a realible source because they are a reputable database and I crosschecked the events given with other databases.
    Netzley, Patricia D. The Assasination of President John F. Kennedy. New York: Macmillan Publishing Company, 1994. Print. This book was a reliable and reputable resource because it was written by an author, Patricia D. Netzley, who has been credited in writting several other books on other historical events. These other works include books on the disappearance of Amelia Earhart, terrorism, and the civil war. All of her works include real evidence and facts that have been backed up by government conclusions. This book was helpful to me in my research, not because it helped lay out facts about the conspiracy, but instead this book gave me facts about the assassination. This book also touched on the various government investigations and the conclusions of the Warren Commision.

    Russo, Gus, and Stephen Molton. American Heritage. American Heritage Publishing Company, n.d. Web. This source was most helpful in the earliest stages of my project, when i was still developing my thesis statement. I used this citation because i was interested in incorporating this topic into my own thesis statement. Later on, when i couldn’t find any reputable sources to give supporting evidence, i decided not to use this in my thesis. Even though i didn’t use this piece in my thesis it stilled helped my eliminate certain topics, like Castro’s involvement in the Kennedy assassination. I know this is a reliable source because i retrieved it from a site that the High School Library staff had put up in the student resource center. I also know that this resource is reliable because American Heritage is written by reliable, reputable history scholars.
    “Summary of Findings of the 1978 Select Committee on Assassinations.” Issues & Controversies in American History. Infobase Publishing, Web. This was a good resource for me to use because it had all evidence to back up my thesis. In this government report, they concluded that Oswald was most likely not the only shooter and that this assassination was most likely a part of a conspiracy. This summary cited multiple pieces of evidence to back their conclusion. I know that this is a reputable resource because Infobase publishing is a reliable database that uses only historical facts from government documents.

    United States. Warren Commission. The Official Warren Commission Report On The Assasination Of President John F. Kennedy. Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1964. Print. This was helpful to me because it gave me information and insight that helped me develop my thesis statement. This research piece also helped me find evidence to back up my thesis even though this document concluded the exact opposite of what i am investigating and trying to prove. The Warren Commission Report had a few holes where the story didn’t make sense and it was in those missing areas that i concentrated my investigation. I know this is a reliable resource because it is an official government document and was not altered in any way, shape, or form. I know this because this document was still in its original print format. Rather than being on the internet, being in print means that it is nearly impossible for someone to tamper with or change the original content of the Warren Commission Report.
    - - -. Warrin Commision. The President’s Commision On The Assassination Of President Kennedy. Wahington: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1964. Print. This was helpful to me because it showed me what the official Warren Commission report was without the editing that you would sometimes get from the internet. I know this is reliable, reputable source because it is a government document that was published by the government printing office. The only editing that would have happened to this document is by the government.
