Reading Homework

I’m studying and need help with a History question to help me learn.

Please consider the following questions in regards to your reading of “Revolutionary Activity” in Building the Great Society by Joshua Zeitz. Provide a page number for where you found your answers in the text. Quotes are not necessary.

  • What did the Economic Opportunities Act establish and was its goal?
  • What were community action programs? What did they aim to do and what was their actual result? What were the pros and cons of the program?
  • What was problematic about the phrase, “Maximum feasible participation?” What did this initiative cause?
  • What was Head Start? Why is it viewed as a success among Great Society programs?
  • What tensions (opposing perspectives/ideals) does the chapter reveal about the War on Poverty? Surmise on how these reflect the Great Society as a whole. (This question does not require a citation.)

make sure to write the page number.
