Learning Goal: I’m working on a history discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Hello, I need help with this assignment, it’s about reading a book( I’ve attached a copy of the book under name “book history”. here’s the directions listed below for you, all I want you to do is to answer all the questions also respond to the responses in the very end of these instructions.
Instructions:
Discussion Forum Instructions
You must participate in the weekly discussion forum. You are asked to submit 5 posts to the discussion board. These 5 posts will include your responses to the original thread question(s) posted by the instructor as well responses to your peers.
There are two kinds of discussion posts:
Original Response to Thread Question: You will respond to the assigned questions based on the readings and/or films for that week. These original posts should be about 200-250 words long. You may wish to compose your posts in Word or a text editor, then copy and paste when you are ready. Your first original post should be submitted on Thursday or Friday of each week in order to receive full credit for that discussion. This ensures that we have enough content before the weekend and don’t have a “traffic jam” of posts on Sunday night with everyone submitting posts and waiting for others to submit. Quality of the post is important, so be sure that your posts answer the questions and demonstrate knowledge.
Response-to-Peers Posts: You will also respond to your classmates’ posts during the week. Quality posts are rewarded. A “reply” means doing more than just agreeing or disagreeing with a post. You must support what someone else has posted and expand upon it, or disagree and provide an alternative perspective.
Citation requirements
Your posts need to contain citations of the readings. You may use parenthetical references. For example, (author, title of document, year, page number). You are not required to and should not use sources other than the assigned readings.
You should cite any time you:
Use a direct quote
Use an idea strongly associated with a particular source
Use a controversial argument or a specific figure, like a statistic
You do not have to cite when you are relating commonly know facts.
——————————
Week Two Discussion Threads:
IMPORTANT: Before you contribute to the discussion, make sure you have read the assigned reading for this week: Brown & Shannon, Going to the Source, vol. 1; Chapter 1 “Monsters and Marvels: Images of Animals from the New World.”
Study tip: Each chapter in Going to the Source includes a source table that will help you analyze the documents before you write about them. You do not need to submit the source table. It is a study aid for preparing your discussion answers.
Citation Tips: Practice citing your sources! Telling the reader where you found your information is one of the most important components of writing for this class. You must cite everything taken from a source, whether you are quoting, summarizing, paraphrasing, or even just taking a fact from that source. Not only is the presentation of evidence a requirement for maximum points on discussion forums, any use of sources with a failure to cite a source represents plagiarism.
Citation Examples:
To cite evidence from non-textbook readings in this course, use parenthetical references with the author’s last name and page number (if page numbers are available), i.e.: Author Elizabeth Kolbert writes, “Columbus reasoned that the world was shaped like a ball with a breastlike protuberance” (Kolbert). Or, if it’s not a quote: Contrary to popular memory, Christopher Columbus did not believe that the world was spherical (Kolbert). If an author wrote more than one outside reading, please include the title of the article in quotation marks. For the textbook and the reader, use “TAP” or “GTTS” instead of the author’s last name, i.e.: Columbus writes, “For it is true…” (TAP, 23). Or, if it’s not a quote: Columbus claimed that the people he encountered at Hispaniola believed that he and his crew were gods (GTTS, 23).
Question 1: Imagine yourself a semiliterate European contemplating migration to the New World in 1650. Explain how your exposure to these sources would affect your decision. Based on these images, would you find one region more attractive than another. Why?
Question 2: Animals in Popular Culture: Think about how animals appear in popular culture in the 21st century. Explain some of the ways in which animals are important symbols or how they represent qualities that are valued in contemporary society. You might consider children’s books, animated movies, comic books, even mascots of sports teams. Why do you think animals are so prominent in American popular culture?
Question 3: Monsters: European travelers were fascinated by the animals they saw. How did they characterize the animals they encountered and why? Consider, for instance, which animals they saw as “monstrous” and which they saw as profitable. How do you think their perceptions affected their desire to colonize the Americas?

Response 1: For:
Kirolos Soliman “ If I was a Semiliterate European thinking of migrating to the new world in 1650 and had came across these resources I would have a change of mind. These resources provide images and information of the type of animals and creatures that roam around in the new world. There is an image labeled Figure1.1 on page 64 of “Going to the source..” This image shows a creature with a child in its mouth and a ship full of soldiers. This image proves to me that it was not pleasant with the existence of these creatures. These sources would only discourage one from the thought of migrating to the new world. I would not find a difference in the regions because there are different types of creatures in different regions”
Response 2#
“The Europeans consider a lot of the animals they found monstrous. I believe they consider a lot of them monstrous because they have never seen most of the animals before. However, they found turkey, deer, and fish to be a source that could feed many people. This also brings profit to the people in the new world. I believe their perception affected their desire to colonize the Americas by only having one thing in mind which is opportunity. If they did not desire a new opportunity to grow or make money they would never leave their original settlement. They would look past all of the bad monstrous creatures and foucus on the opportunity they could build in America.”
