If your respondents’ understanding of the Cold War is different from the way the Cold War is defined in the first section of your essay, explain why that might be the case.

If your respondents’ understanding of the Cold War is different from the way the Cold War is defined in the first section of your essay, explain why that might be the case.

After you have completed the Assignment, write up your findings in a brief essay, which addresses the following:

1. In the first part of your essay, briefly describe the Cold War in your own words. Remember that citations are needed when you paraphrase information from sources.

2. Using quotes from your interviews, describe how each of your three respondents understand the Cold War. This is not the same as listing your interview questions and responses. You must group the answers together in a meaningful way and summarize what each person knows about the Cold War, using quotes from the interview to illustrate your findings.

3. If your respondents’ understanding of the Cold War is different from the way the Cold War is defined in the first section of your essay, explain why that might be the case. (Also, if their definition of the Cold War is very similar, explain this as well.)

4. You must include a copy of your interview notes. You may attach the notes to your assignment as an appendix or submit in a separate file.

Your essay should be 2–3 pages in length (500–700 words)

· Double spaced

· #12 font –Times New Roman

· 1” margins on all sides

· Separate cover page and reference page

· A minimum of one (1) outside (including texts from the course, if you like) scholarly source

· Remember: Wikipedia, encyclopedias, and encyclopedia-type sources (answers.com, infoplease.com and such) are not considered academic sources.
