I’m working on a Academic question and need guidance to help me study.
I know it’s too late to find help but if you can help me to pass this midterm I will reward you deservedly!!!
All you need to do is look them up on any website, copy and paste definition, context, and significance BUT it needs to be related to the lecture (the class I am taking right now) otherwise it would be considered as off topic. I have attached key term number 1 for you as an example, so your job is doing the same for the 9 key terms left. I will attach some readings that relate to class if you have time you can find the significance and context as well as the relationship between key terms.
You can use any source that helpful for you. Quizlet/chegg/course hero….etc…
I expect answers will vary slightly in length in accord with the specific term;
however, you should write at bare minimum 1 paragraph on each one (between
about 4-7 sentences depending on their length). Each term is worth 5 points for a
total of 25. You will need to place the term within its historical context, define it by
capturing the major points, and explain why the term is significant to our historical
understanding and/or our understanding of contemporary global society. Where
applicable, it is important that you use concrete historical examples. Very important
note: all of this this will inevitably require relating the term to certain other key
terms from the same and/or different lectures. Read your notes, review power
points, make analytical connections. Practice, practice, practice. Context is worth 1
point, definition is worth 2, and significance is worth 2 for a total of 5 for each term.
For context, you need to pretend your Teaching Assistants know little about the key terms. Locate it in
its historical moment; give background information that is necessary for
understanding the key term, both definition and significance. For definition, this
part of the answer will vary based on what the key term is. In essence, you are
identifying the facts of the key term. Define it. This could entail discussing the
historical actors involved along with their objectives, the term as a historical
process, the term as mentality or ideological belief, the term as a scientific concept,
the power relations involved, the environmental dynamics, and so on. Significance is
more open-ended, but still needs to be founded on logical and facts-based thinking.
What are the historical effects of the term? Why should we find it important in the
way it shaped our modern world and/or our relations with our surrounding
You are also expected to use reading content for at least 3 of the key terms. Failure
to use reading material in your answers of at least 3 key terms will result in
significant point deduction. Hint, review your readings and reading notes, and catch
up on readings if you’ve fallen behind.
The 10 key terms:
1. The Columbian Exchange
2. Silver and sugar economies
3. Fossil Capitalism
4. Carbon Democracy
5. Mass destruction mining and the making of sacrifice zones
6. The Green Revolution
7. Infinite Soil and the idea of Utilitarian Nature
8. United States as Imperial Power
9. War and new machines/technologies
10. Urbanization as an environmental problem
Here is Example of key term number 1 that I find.
The Columbian Exchange is a general term used to describe all the things that were transferred by Europeans (from Europe, Asia, and Africa) to the Americas, and vice versa, during the age of exploration and colonization. The Columbian Exchange refers to a period of cultural and biological exchanges between the New and Old Worlds. This includes the transfer of agricultural goods, such as plants and animals, manufactured goods, as well as the exchange of foreign diseases such as smallpox, influenza, and typhus. Beginning after Columbus’ discovery in 1492 the exchange lasted throughout the years of expansion and discovery. The Columbian Exchange impacted the social and cultural makeup of both sides of the Atlantic. As we discussed in lecture, advancements in agricultural production, evolution of warfare, increased mortality rates and education are a few examples of the effect of the Columbian Exchange on both Europeans and Native Americans. Studying the Columbian Exchange is a way to better understand the relationship between the Native Americans and European explorers, conquerors, and colonizers.
