In a reading questions assignment, you read and respond to a specific prompt or prompts on assigned reading material. Responses are expected to articulate clear arguments that are supported with specific evidence from the material you have read. A vague response or a thesis that restates the prompt is not effective, avoid this. Be bold, take a stand. All responses should be approximately 2 typed, double-spaced pages. In your responses, you may also use the textbook and notes from lecture where relevant (all readings should be cited). All quotations must be cited.
Remember, all work that is not your own must be cited. All quotations must be cited. Whether from the documents or from somebody else, be sure to follow an approved citation method (parenthetical or footnotes). For exact citation formatting, see the Chicago Manual of Style or Kate L. Turabian, ed. A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations. Unacceptable documentation of sources means that the essay will not be graded. No outside sources are permitted on these assignments without instructor approval. Obviously, any essay must be spell checked and proofread. Form, style and content as well as logic and reasoning will all contribute to the assessment of the essay. PLEASE DO NOT COPY/PASTE THESE GUIDELINES INTO YOUR PAPER.
1. What were some of the major factors that led to Potosí’s decline as a major producer of silver? How did reformers attempt to fix these problems?
2. Broadly, what are the major takeaways/lessons you think Kris Lane is trying to draw from the history of Potosí?
