HIS 242
Gorbachev Paragraph Assignment

Glory to Labor

Well, it is a nice image, "Glory to Work."  The problem that Gorbachev had to deal with was that no one was really working--even though they were going to work--That was not good for the Russian economy.

After reading some of Gorbachev's statements

Answer the following question in a paragraph:

Citing specific evidence from the information about Gorbachev, what did Gorbachev hope to achieve with his policy of perestroika?

Your paragraph should be about one-half page in length, double-spaced with one-inch margins, font size 10 or 12; it should contain a concise topic sentence that directly responds to the assigned question (no need to define terms or cite a dictionary) and use direct, quoted material to support your points.  You may consider submitting a draft of your assignment to your instructor for feedback before submitting the assignment for a grade. Please send some specific questions that you would like answered about your draft. The questions can be general (Is my thesis/first sentence clear?) or specific (Is the phrase, "Chardin was jeweller," written correctly?).
Your assignment should be sent to your course instructor following the directions for submitting assignments.
Please take a moment to review Charlie's History Writing Center for specific information on the writing requirements for the assignments in the course.
