HST318 Discussion Posts Spring 2016B Unit 1: Prompt: Please read over the Discussion board guidelines before posting. As a gentle reminder for this first unit, you are to post two initial responses (to 2 different questions in the prompts) by Thursday 3/17. Then you are to post three responses to your groupmates' posts by Sunday 3/20. 1. Choose one passage from Jervis's autobiography that you believe best captures the state of American engineering from 1815-1825. Explain why you think it is representative. 2. If you were a citizen of New York in 1816, which argument from Atticus would you find most convincing, and which least convincing? Explain why. 3. Morrison claims that the building of the Middlesex Canal can be seen in one of two ways: 1) "a continual and almost systematic botching of a very simple process" or 2) "as an exercise rather more remarkable than [landing a man on the moon]" (p. 29). Which interpretation do you consider more accurate, and why? Be sure on all three questions that you are using specific examples from the requisite text. Prompt 1 response: My apologies on the lateness of these initial posts, I did not read the Unit 1 overview entirely in  detail and missed that there was a firm deadline before Sunday for some assignments (like this  board).  Noted for future posts. Moving on!  I have chosen a passage from Jervis's autobiography to dissect for the first prompt.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
