World History Homework Nine World History Homework Nine Instructor: Andy Schlafly Read the lecture. You can substitute in a question from honors into your regular assignment, if you are not in honors. You can also substitute in a question raised from class or the lecture. This is a reduced assignment to give students a break after the midterm exam. 1. Now that you've taken the midterm exam, how might you have prepared better? (5 words or less) I could have studied more.
2. Religious wars in England: its loss, America's gain. Explain. Because of the religious wars and the prosecution of Puritans in England, the Puritans moved to America and founded colonies, and when the Puritans founded these new colonies in America this helped America to grow.
3. The French Revolution: all bad, or was there something good about it? There were a few good things about the French revolution such as the end of absolute monarchy, and the limiting of the power of the nobles. But although these good things did happen it is still another case where the ends do not justify the means—guillotining people, for instance.
4. Pick another revolution and describe it. The American Revolution was a revolution that took place before the French revolution. In fact, its success inspired the French to have their revolution. The American Revolution was when thirteen of the colonies of America rose up in anger against the British. The biggest effect that this victory had was that it showed the world that the British army juggernaut could be beaten.
- I don't such a big effect in showing the world that the British army could be beaten. The British continued to grow in power afterward and crushed other opponents, including the United States itself in most of the battles of the War of 1812. To demonstrate such an effect, you need to provide an example where the effect made a difference. (Minus 1).
5. Why do you think it took the world so long before revolutions started occurring? Although the word “revolution” did not arise until the 1700s, that does not mean that there were not already revolutions. For instance, there was the German general Arminius and his revolt against the Roman Empire, or the Saxon revolt against Charlemagne. There were many revolutions before the 1700 hundreds.
- Perhaps, but I think those battles were different from a true "revolution". Still, your opinion is a valid one.
Honors Questions (answer any 2 in addition to the above questions)
H2. Napoleon's Empire: write about any aspect of it that interests you. I think that the way Napoleon ruled was very interesting. He bred dislike of foreigners and catered to many of the common people’s likes and dislikes, such as the return of another regime. He also gathered power with his support for French institutions such as the “Concordant of 1801” which confirmed the Catholic church as the major church of France. He catered to the people and supported only France and this is how he rose to great power in the empire.
- Excellent, may use as a model.
H3. The Louisiana Purchase was a "win-win" deal, meaning it was advantageous for both sides. Explain. The Louisiana Purchase was a win-win situation for both parties because it gave the Americans a lot of extra land and it also got the French money to fund their war.
- Good work, with several valuable insights. 69/70. Well done.--Andy Schlafly 22:23, 4 April 2009 (EDT)
