- Analyze this image and watch the video below, both of which are helpful overviews of the so-called "Columbian Exchange."
- After having watched the video, leave a comment and react to it. Consider these discussion questions: (a) How or in what way might the Columbian Exchange connect with or link to what we experience today? OR (b) Discuss both intended and unintended consequences of the Columbian Exchange? OR (c) After having watched the video and analyzed the image, what lessons can we learn about that exchange that informs us about how we ought to live today amidst Covid-19? Try to make it a habit of developing some argument -- one paragraph at least -- that is generative. In other words, watch the video and come up with some evidence-based argument that supports a claim you've generated. This is no different than the argumentative skills you've developed in seminar throughout the year.
NOTE: You should post a comment or reply to someone else's to confirm completion of the work. If you do not post a comment or reply to someone's, then you should be present during this week's Zoom meeting. If you do not comment or attend the Zoom meeting, I'll check in with you via email.
