THE LINK FOR THE ASSIGNMENT (https://openstax.org/books/us-history/pages/1-1-the-americas).

Pull-out what you deem the most important historical events/developments discussed inthe last 7 chapters [Chapters 9-15]. Take each of these seven events/developments and compare and contrast them to one event/development occurring during your life-time. The life-time event can be based on any criteria you wish [an event you liked, disliked, that impacted you or your race or state, that you despised or admired, that inspired you…).In all, you will be working with 14 events/developments. You will compare and contrast7 events/developments from the chapters and7 lifetime events/developments. Hence, while you will be comparing 14 events in all, you will only have to provide7 comparative analyses [the act of comparing and contrasting two concepts] since your analyses will be in pairs.As an example, for one of your   seven comparative analyses, you may wish to compare and contrast thePunic Warsand the Gulf War. Your comparative analysis would need to include what these two events have in common (at least two or three things) and where they differ (one or two things). In each of the seven analyses, you must demonstrate knowledge and understanding of both the chapter event and the life-time event. The life-time event can be based on memory or your understanding [though you can feel free to refresh your knowledge of the life-time event]; however, the chapter event should be as historically accurate as possible.The life-time event can range from a major political event to an insignificant social or cultural event. Please feel free to be creative [such as comparing a chapter event to a fictional event..?]An introduction telegraphing where you are headed in the essay.A brief discussion of the chapter events’ and the life-time events’ similarities and the differences in each of your comparative analyses.A brief note as to why you selected each of the events.A concluding paragraph for the essay.Your essay should demonstrate an understanding of the English language and your ability to navigate through the language. In other words, put your English skills to work. Make your essay, easy to read, informative and interesting. You have four days to work your magic so don’t feel rushed!!! I have selected this format to both challenge you and to allow your creative juices to flow in a course that many students find boring and stale. Also No sub-titles, headings, boldings, numberings [this includes alphabets], bullets or other accessories will be accepted. Please prepare a formal essay that lets your writing do your talking!!
