American history 2
For each chapter of OB, you should read the entire chapter and take notes (which you will likely use on the respective assignment, as well as in your Final Exam studying and other course work). Once you have finished reading the Chapter, you should look at the “Post-Reading Questions” at the end of the Chapter and CHOOSE ONE of the Post-Reading Questions answer. Alternatively, you can choose the “Journal Option” (Option 3 below). For each question set, you should write a 1-2 page typewritten response, being sure to use information directly from the documents themselves. Each answer should also include at least one direct quotation from at least three of the sources referenced in the question (for a total of at least three quotes). Each question set’s answer is worth a possible 3 points. Late Assignments will NOT be accepted.
The questions for Chapter 9 (you should CHOOSE ONE to answer in 1-2 pages) are:
Pretend you are a journalist in the 1860s who has been asked to write an article about whether easterners should move to the west. Take either a pro or con stance on this issue and write your article accordingly (either convince easterners to move west, or convince them not to), being sure to use specific examples and quotes from the primary source documents in this chapter.
