Essay Interpreting Primary Documents Related to Industrialization
Write a 2-3 page essay that examines the attached letters from Lowell, MA and evaluates them in the context of the early 1800s.
Style and Format
2-3 pages
Typed, double spaced
12 pt Times New Roman font or equivalent
1 inch margins
Your paper must have a title (the wittier the better)
Name and section # at the top of page 1 or on the title page
Research must include two or more high quality sources from outside class material.

Description
The letters attached to the paper assignment are primary sources. They are letters written by women who worked in the Lowell factories. “Susan” wrote hers for the Lowell Offering, a newsletter published by the factory owners. For this paper assignment you need to examine the letters and interpret their historical importance. In your essay you need to present a historical argument that connects the information in the letters, or the perspective of the authors to larger historical changes that occurred in the early 1800s. This will require you to do some additional research to understand the broader context of the letters. Keep in mind that historical documents often have a hidden subtext and that the writers do not always mean exactly what they write. Historical documents usually have layers of meaning. Historians interpret these layers.
When I read your paper I will primarily be looking for six things:
1. That you understood the historical significance of the letters.
2. That you connected the letters to broader historical changes.
3. That you created your own historical argument.
4. That you conducted research to contextualize the letter.
5. That you cite your sources.
6. That you structured your writing based on the guidelines discussed earlier in the semester.
Structure
This paper must follow the introduction, body, conclusion structure that we discussed earlier in the semester before writing the first essay. Please see the description of the first essay if you need a reminder of what I mean by introduction, body, and conclusion.

Assessment
A photo of Hiram Bingham III standing
outside his tent at Machu Picchu in 1912.
Public Domain
Archaeologists dig into ruins to find clues to what life was like in a past civilization. American historian Hiram Bingham had the luck to discover Machu Picchu in Peru, on July 24, 1911. As a result, he studied the Incas in more detail than others had done before. Probably the only thing better to understand the past than finding a bunch of artifacts and documents would be to travel back in time.
That’s exactly what you will do for this assessment! Well, in your imagination you will. Imagine you could go back in time and live among one of these Mesoamerican groups: the Maya, the Aztec, or the Inca. You can choose only one, and you should think very carefully about your choice. Consider what life was like in each civilization and what roles people had in each society.
Steps:
1 Determine the civilization you would choose to live in—Aztec, Inca, or Maya. Write a complete paragraph explaining your choice, using at least three facts from the lesson about life in that society.
2 Write a complete paragraph explaining why you did not choose the other two civilizations. Use at least one fact from the lesson for each civilization in your explanation.
You may choose to use Web 2.0 tools for this assignment. Please visit the Web 2.0 area of the course for more information.

04.03 RENAISSANCE & FINE ARTS
-history
Assessment
The Renaissance was a bridge from the medieval world to the modern world, and its legacy can be seen in many things around us even today.
Ready to get up from your seat? Now it’s your turn to go out into your school and community and find your own evidence of the legacy of the Renaissance. You might look at the buildings around you and find examples of Renaissance architecture. (Domes? Columns?). Is there a theater group producing a play from Shakespeare? Other examples might include a copy of the book The Prince, a DVD cover for the movie Shakespeare in Love, a famous piece of art by da Vinci hanging on a wall, an advertisement for an art show or a poetry reading night, or an ad for continuing education classes at a local college.
Find five examples of the Renaissance legacy around you and explain in two to three sentences why you think each one is a good example. Make sure to include items from each category: art, architecture, literature, and inventions. Use a digital camera, a photocopier, or your own artwork to create visuals of the items that you find and use them to create a digital poster or slideshow presentation. Use your Web 2.0 resource page to help you.
For your digital poster or slideshow, remember to include:
• five images (digital or drawn) of the Renaissance legacy around you
• at least one image for each of the following categories: art, architecture, literature, and inventions
• for each example, a two to three sentence explanation of why it represents a legacy of the Renaissance, including how the example reflects the influence of humanism.

© 2012 The Exploration Company
Civilizations do not just happen. They grow, like families and friendships, from among the people who live in them. The kingdoms of East, Central, and South Africa comprised a variety of African peoples as well as Arabs, Persians, and Indians who came to trade. Each society had its own hierarchy, or social structure.
Imagine you have just completed a trip through the early kingdoms and city-states of East, Central, and South Africa. Your family and friends ask you about the trip. Your task is to give them an oral history of your experience.
You may choose to write your account, record it, or make a video. Remember, your family and friends will share your story and pass it on to future generations, like oral historians in Africa. Make it fascinating! No one wants to hear a boring story.
Tell the most significant or important things you saw or learned about kingdoms or city-states in each region. Be sure to do the following as you complete this assessment:
• identify at least one kingdom or city-state that you visited from each region—East, Central, and South
• Eastern Africa
• Central Africa
• Southern Africa
• Meroe
Funj
Axum
Ethiopia
Oromo
Swahili
• Bunyoro-Kitara
Kongo
• Great Zimbabwe
Mwenamutapa
Lunda
Luba
• explain at least one important political, one social, and one economic feature you observed in each of the three places you visited
• write or speak with a natural narrative voice, as if telling a story to a friend
• use complete sentences to express your ideas, and make sure that your explanations are thorough by providing details from the lesson
• write at least three paragraphs total, one for each kingdom or city-state (with at least five complete sentences per paragraph)
You may choose a Web 2.0 tool to create your oral history. Visit the Web 2.0 tools area of the course for additional ideas and resources.

Then pick one of the basic themes of the course that has resonated with you (balance, or complementarity of opposites, or greater vulnerability that comes from greater opportunity, etc.), and show how that theme is illustrated in that subject–then try to show how the historical experience covered in the class is relevant to the issue as it affects you personally in your own life.
