CENGAGE |MINDTAP to-graded Activity: Thinking Critically Imagine that you have been tasked to write an essay on the topic of royal weddings. You've gathered the three sources that appear in the following table. Read these three sources and answer the questions that follow. Royal Weddings Source A: Queen Rania Source B: Michiko Shoda Source C: Prince Edward and Wallis Simpson (1) How does a woman who is not young or attractive steal the heart of a king? No one really knows why Prince Edward became so obsessed with Wallis Simpson, a twice-divorced American woman, but on December 11, 1936, he gave up his right to ascend to the British throne to marry her. (2) The scandal began when Prince Edward met Wallis Simpson at a party given by the prince's lover, Lady Thelma Furness. It was soon obvious that the prince was fascinated by Simpson, and in spite of the fact that she was married, the two became lovers. Having an affair was not new to either one of them. Prince Edward was a much sought-after bachelor, well-known for having many affairs. Wallis had been married before, and after her divorce she had an affair with a married man, Ernest Simpson. Ernest divorced his wife, married Wallis, and they moved to England. (3) In the end, their union was not a healthy one. Their relationship was neither harmonious nor peaceful, and it did not bring them the happiness they sought. Throughout their marriage, they still found comfort in the arms of other lovers. Source: Jones, Chris. "Profile: Wallis Simpson." BBC News. BBC, 29 Jan. 2003. Web. 25 Sept. 2013. Which of the following is a paraphrase of the main idea of Source B? Michiko Shoda's marriage to the Crown Prince of Japan, Prince Akihito, was resented by ten noble families. Michiko Shoda met her future husband, the Crown Prince of Japan, Prince Akihito, playing tennis. Michiko Shoda's marriage to the Crown Prince of Japan, Prince Akihito, was a good match.

You've gathered the three sources that appear in the following table. Read these three sources and answer the questions that follow. Royal Weddings Source A: Queen Rania Source B: Michiko Shoda Source C: Prince Edward and Wallis Simpson (1) Although she was a small girl, there was nothing delicate about Michiko Shoda's physical and mental strength. Standing only 5 feet, 2 inches tall, she was nonetheless a powerful figure on the tennis court. Equally, she was a force to contend with in the classroom, and her professors and teachers at the University of the Sacred Heart of Tokyo characterized her as a brilliant student. (2) Perhaps these qualities were what attracted the Crown Prince of Japan, Prince Akihito, to pursue her. They met on the tennis court at the Karuizawa resort, and he was amazed by her strength and ability. In fact, when they played tennis, she beat him soundly. As he got to know her, he became equally fascinated by her brilliant mind. (3) Born of a wealthy Japanese family in 1934, Michiko was nevertheless considered to be a commoner and an unlikely match for a prince. However, for the first time in Japanese history, in 1959 a prince married a commoner, a union based on the equality of minds and hearts.

Auto-graded Activity: Thinking Critically Imagine that you have been tasked to write an essay on the topic of royal weddings. You've gathered the three sources that appear in the following table. Read these three sources and answer the questions that follow. Royal Weddings Source A: Queen Rania Source B: Michiko Shoda Source C: Prince Edward and Wallis Simpson (1) Rania Al Yassin is a vision of loveliness, but what makes her beauty remarkable is her inner beauty and her hopes for the people of Jordan. Although she was considered to be a commoner when she married Prince Abdullah Bin Hussein on June 10, 1993, she has conducted herself as his equal and as a queen. (2) Before she became queen, Rania attended the American University of Cairo, and afterwards, she went to work for a bank. She did not dream of becoming the Queen of Jordan, but after she met Prince Abdullah, her life was never the same. (3) Now as his wife, she shares with him a vision of a brighter future for the Jordanian people and has devoted herself to providing educational and economic opportunities for her people. She has focused her efforts in five areas. First, she created the River Foundation to help stop child abuse in her country. Second, she has improved schools, launched teachers' academies, and opened a children's museum. Third, she served as chairperson for and has supported organizations that promote global education. Fourth, she encouraged people from different areas and cultures to meet and speak with one another to find peaceful solutions to conflicts. Last, she encouraged Jordanian youth to think about ways they can start businesses to contribute to the wealth and stability of Jordan's economy. (4) Although born a commoner, Queen Rania has proven that royalty is not a matter of blood, but a matter of heart, spirit, and a hope for a future that is for the good of all.
