Once youve read, watched and listened to all of our materials films and readings through the end of
Colonial Legacies Pt I (see syllabus, announcements and study guides I gave you), write your
responses to (youre addressing two things):
Pt 1) one major theme from one of your films (listed below and posted in Padlet) You will have
seen all films but you dont have to write about all of them- choose a major issue or theme from one
of them, tell us all about it, develop it, and tell us why that issue or theme is important for this
hemisphere and for our Colonial Legacies. Show that youre making connections with our
Films: Guns, Germs & Steel; 500 Nations: Clash of Cultures (Caribbean); Engineering
an Empire: Aztec; and We Shall Remain: After the Mayflower
(Sample themes: Spanish/English attitudes towards Natives; Religion; Germs; Technology; Native
Societies and they organized their societies, adapted to their surroundings; Conquest; Settler
Colonialism (English); there are plenty more you can address)
Length of Part I: one concise paragraph with specific examples.
Pt 2) your brief analysis of one of these primary sources (youve read them all but choose the
one you found most interesting and analyze that one as a primary source):
*The Requerimiento (the Requirement, a primary source)
*Excerpts, Bartolom de las Casas, In Defense of the Indians, and Juan Gins de Sepulveda
1550 at Great Debate in Valladolid (short primary sources)
*The Town Council of Huejotzingo (Mexico) to the King (of Spain), 1560 (Nahuatl language
For this part,
a) Tell us all about the document that youve chosen.: who wrote it? to whom? when? why? what
was its purpose?
b) from our lectures and readings (Chasteen ch. 2 as well) what is going
on at the time this primary source is produced?
c) Analyze the primary source or document. Primary sources are very important for us, but as
students as History, we know we can’t take them at full face value – why not? What are some
assumptions behind these statements? Assumptions matter If we only read primary sources like this
one you’re analyzing, do we get the full picture? If not, what other kind of primary sources or
documents do we need to consult to have a full understanding of the topic/era?
d) What specific contributions does your primary source or document make to our understanding of
the history of the modern Americas?
Length of Part I: one concise paragraph with specific examples.
Write your essay in a so you can always have a copy. Proofread it. Spellcheck it. Copy what you wrote and paste it under your film or primary source that youre addressing
(it says Add comment- drop it there. Make sure your full name is there so that we all know who
everyone is when replying to each other and when I record).

Response to two of your classmates posts/insights. You are also required to respond to at least
two other students post (see the due date for that one)- one can be on a film or primary source you
also wrote about, one should be on a different film or primary source you didnt write about. You
can amplify on a point made, raise a related point, discuss the issue in relation to other documents,
agree or disagree with supporting evidence (in a constructive way), and/or raise new informed
questions that we should all think about. One well-developed, and well-supported paragraphs
should suffice for your response.
