Online Textbook Chapter 16 Assignment (5 points for each question for 10 points)

Due: May 25 by 11:59pm (post response to Canvas)


Students should read Chapter 16 of the online textbook. Students should be sure to read any historical documents that appear in the online textbook but are not required to click on any of the links that take the reader to an external internet site. After reading Chapter 16, students are to complete two questions (see below).


For each question, students should write a response of at least 150 words. Students are welcome to go over the minimum word count requirement. If you include the question in your response, it does not count toward the word count requirement. The response should be written in your own words. DO NOT cut and paste the response from sentences or phrases from the textbook.


Each response must reflect the content of the textbook. Not what students looked up online.

These questions are designed to hold students accountable for the reading as well as to be used as notes for the essay exams. Students taking their time in their reading and question responses will have a major head start on the essay exams.


These responses will be evaluated on how well the responses reflect the content of the reading.

Students should submit their responses as ONE Word doc or PDF file to Canvas.
