Hi proff i need help with my history essay these are the instruction: The purpose of the Wiki assignments is to familiarize you with a "new" methodology of studying history ("new" because this is my own creation). In my lifetime of studying the past, I have seen certain reoccurring "themes" that help us understand the course of human events in this discipline we call history. I

have provided here the same list of historical themes that you will find in the folder for your Historical Themed Movie Review that you will compose and turn in at the end of this term. These Wikis will help you learn to see history in terms of these themes. Some of these themes are quite self-explanatory and some are not. There are 20 historical themes and 2 Wiki assignments you are expected to complete in the semester - therefore there are NO REPEATS of themes in your Wiki posts. You will use a total of 6 different themes in the two Wiki Assignments. For each Wiki Assignment, I want you to write a minimum 600 word entry (CONTENT ONLY - Works Cited DOES NOT count towards

minimum word count) about 3 historical themes that you can extrapolate from the course materials we have studied. So the math here is easy = 3 different themes X 2 Wikis = 6 historical themes. I expect to see original analysis, interpretation and rhetorical content. You are also required to quote your textbook twice in each Wiki Assignment to support your analysis, AND to quote TWO of the primary documents from the Mindtap site for the textbook to support your content as well. PLEASE cite these sources appropriately according to my instructions. You must also give me a properly formatted Works Cited DO NOT EDIT EXISTING WIKIS. ALWAYS CREATE NEW WIKI. Over the last few weeks we have been reviewing and studying about European Exploration, the Atlantic World, the Reformation and the crisis of Religion Wars in Europe, the advancement of the Islamic world, and the empires of China and Japan, utilizing chapters 14 - 17 from your textbook. Compose a minimum 600 word essay identifying 3 historical themes of your choosing from my list of themes that you can

use to summarize histories we have studied this grading period. Remember, once you write about these 3 themes you cannot use them again in a future Wiki assignment. PLEASE use your name in your Wiki title. please find the attached sample essay and list of themes and let me know if they didn't open i also need to send you my account info so you have an access to the online textbook Thanks a lot

samplewiki.docx SAMPLE WIKI: Theme #14: Pivot Points in History When Christopher Columbus first set foot in the New World in 1492, the contemporary world had no idea just how large an impact this would have on the world as they knew it. Whereas Columbus thought that his discovery would radically expand the possibilities for trade between Europe and Asia, history demonstrates that the discovery instead led to pivotal changes for European, African, and especially Native American societies. Whereas the discovery of the New World led to a general rise in material wealth for the Europeans due to the import of various crops, tobacco, gold,

    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.
