all of these questions must be answered in the body paragraphs of the essay.

created? How is the person(s) who created the source connected to that historical context? What
was the author’s main argument or primary message they are trying to convey? What
information is conveyed in this source? What opinions are expressed? How does the author try
to get their message across? What methods does he/she use? Individually, what information does
each source provide? What are some of the strengths and limitations of the sources? Collectively
(as a set), what historical image do these sources project or depict?
3. Cotton or Drugs: In units two and three, we have discussed how cotton and drugs as
commodities have impacted world history. For this question, students are to address how cotton
or drugs (be specific in terms of what you identify as the drug of focus in your essay) as a
commodity have impacted world history in one or two of the following ways: economics,
politics, government, culture, geography, or society. Be sure to use supporting evidence from at
least one (1) primary source in your essay.
