History Question

1302 Assignment one

You will be reading some primary documents and looking at some images from the 1880s and 1890s. You will answer a series of questions about the documents and images. The documents are posted in the assignment one module as a pdf. The images are below the questions.

Copy and paste the questions into a document and answer below each question. Use complete sentences and fully answer each question. Use your own words, do not just use direct quotes from the reading. I will be looking for your analysis of the documents and images. Some of the questions are asking for your opinion, so there is not a right or wrong answer, but you need to tell me how you reached that conclusion.

Upload it to the “Turn it in” link inside the assignment tab using the Cut & Paste feature. Refer to the instructions for submitting in the “Getting Started”Module. I will not accept any submissions not following the instructions or submitted by email.
