For your final essay, you will write an essay outlining a major turning point in world history from the 16th century to present day. You will choose a turning point that, in your opinion, had the biggest effect and made a significant impact on modern history. Your essay should be an argumentative essay indicating why this event was such an important turning point. Events you can choose from include: the Reformation, the discovery of the New World, the Industrial Revolution, the ideas of the Enlightenment, the development of the atomic bomb, or feel free to research your own topic. Use MLA format and examples from the reading, course material and outside sources to support your ideas. Your essay should be a minimum of two pages (not including references or title page).
