Give your interpretations, and we want you to support your essays with specific and relevant examples from the readings, YouTube clips, and lectures. The trick is to make an argument that includes a thesis statement at the outset, use your evidence wisely to support it, and reach a conclusion. Be creative and bold, but don’t be afraid to reach a cautious conclusion. For example, if you aren’t sure whether Reagan’s victory symbolized a triumph of conservatism or a repudiation of Jimmy Carter, explain the reason(s) for your uncertainty. Please bring bluebooks (preferably the big ones), and, unless you really need to write with a pencil, please use pens. You can use the other side of this page to bring in HANDWRITTEN notes that you think will be helpful.
Please be sure to address every issue and topic raised by each question! You may wish to form study groups. Whether or not you do, please keep asking yourself as you study if you are hitting everything raised by each question/statement.
Page citations are unnecessary. But feel free to say, for example, As Gillon/Sutton/Jacobs and Zelizer/the “Saturday Night Fever” trailer show(s)/indicate(s)/demonstrate(s) etc. when you are relying on those sources for specific points.

1. According to Matt Sutton, “Ronald Reagan, a former actor and divorcee who did not regularly attend church, spoke the language of evangelicalism fluently and believed in many of the issues that conservative Christians cared about.” (Jerry Falwell and the Rise of the Religious Right, p. 22) One might also say that, along with the language of the religious right, Reagan spoke the language of the Old Right, the New Right, redneck populists, neoconservatives and working-class Democrats fluently too. What issues did the members of each of these groups (including the religious right) care about, and why did their members coalesce around Reagan in 1980? Did the 1980 election represent the triumph of conservatism and/or a repudiation of Jimmy Carter and the “malaise” of the 1970s? (Hint: To answer this question you must indicate whether the period from 1974-1980 was malaise-ridden and if so, why).
2. Even assuming Ronald Reagan’s election in 1980 represented a victory for conservatism, Meg Jacobs and Julian Zelizer demonstrate that, once in power, conservatives discovered that implementing their agenda and undoing liberalism was no cinch. Did the 1980 Presidential election represent the triumph of conservatism and/or a repudiation of Jimmy Carter and the “malaise” of the 1970s, and what were the successes and failures of “the Reagan Revolution?” (Hint: To answer this question, you must indicate whether the period from 1974-1980 was malaise-ridden and, if so, why. You must also define “success” and “failure”).
