This preview shows page 2 - 3 out of 3 pages.

In this section, you must create ONE ID for a test. IDs are key people, places, events, or concepts (so “George Washington” or “trickle-down economics” for example). Each ID MUST INCLUDE: an explanation of who or what/where (if applicable)/ when/why it is important & then you will need to explain why you chose that ID for the question. EXAMPLE (not to be used): format your untest answer the same way ID: Cahokia Cahokia is a city created by the Mississippians along the Mississippi River just across from modern St. Louis (in modern Illinois). It was the political center of a chiefdom and was ringed by smaller hamlets (“suburbs”). Founded around 1150 CE and abandoned in the early 14 th century CE. It was the largest city north of Mexico until Philadelphia in the early 1800s. Cahokia was a key trade center with trade routes reaching out along the Mississippi watershed and was ruled by a powerful paramount chief. I chose this ID because of the importance of long distance trade networks in the Americas prior to 1492. Cahokia, along with sites such as Chaco Canyon in the southwest, were vital to the development of Indian political units, economy, and culture. I chose Cahokia to also represent the Mississippian culture, one of the key cultures in this time period in what is now the United States. Since Cahokia was the largest city in the US prior to 1800, it is also worthy of an ID on a test. CONNECTIONS HINT: You MUST MAKE 1 connections. The connections/facts must be different facts but facts that can be connected.

    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.
