You will choose 2 of the 4 questions to answer. Your answers should be thoughtful, in depth and fully explain your understanding of the information. Remember, this is your opportunity to show what you know and understand. Make sure to give examples and evidence from the textbook and readings to justify or explain your answers. Your answers should be about 150-200 each. If your answer is less than 150 words or does not fully answer the question, points will be taken off.
* ***Make sure your posts are in your own words. I already know what the texts say. I am not just looking for facts. I want your own insights and connections into the topic as well. Simply regurgitating facts or writing what the texts say does not demonstrate your knowledge or understanding of the topics.****
1. Explain Manifest Destiny. What was it? What was the goal? What were some reasons/motivations for both the American government and the American people to move out West? How did Manifest Destiny impact the tensions over slavery? Explain.
2. Explain the Kansas – Nebraska Act. What was the purpose of the Act? What problems did it solve? What problems did it create? How did it impact the tensions over slavery? Explain.
Write in your own word. Do not just write facts. Explain it in your own ways.
