World History 2 – Nov 28 to Dec 1

A fun-filled week is in store examining the royal families of Spain and England during the sixteenth century.

The exploration will be in support of our coverage of the various impacts of the Protestant Reformation and will examine the “close” family ties of the Spanish Hapsburgs and the relation by marriage and then intense rivalry with the Tudors of England. As an appetizer we will look into the six wives of King Henry VIII of England.

The end of the semester is approaching, so final exams for the semester are just around the corner.

NPH Giving Tree

cwvDm9asA_Lw9YsGTQNy8vWrdsA (1)

Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) is an international organization that takes in abandoned and orphaned children, providing a home and education. Here in Honduras, the NPH organization provides for over 500 children in at large ranch near La Venta and home in Tegucigalpa for severely handicapped children. While many children at the ranch have aunts, uncles, or grandparents that come to visit them and can provide some Christmas gifts, some children at a ranch have no family to visit. It is these children, whom we would like to provide for this Christmas. In the secondary building, second floor, a NPH Giving Tree bulletin board will be set up. If you wish to participate, choose a paper tree that has a child’s information about his/her size for shoes and socks.
Purchase the new items and return them to Mrs. Agurcia’s Room (Secondary Building, Rm. 7) by Tuesday, December 5th,unwrapped, with the tree tag taped to it. Thank you for giving this Christmas!

Due Date – 28 November

 PLEASE SUBMIT AS A GOOGLE DOC. SEND THE LINK INFORMATION TO ISTEWART@DISCOVERYSCHOOL.EDU.HN

  1. Explain how the fall of Constantinople ended up leading to the fall of the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan. To do this effectively, you will need to construct a multiple-paragraph response that addresses EACH of the following issues:

 

  • Why did the fall of Constantinople act as a contributing cause to the Age of Exploration? To do this effectively, you will want to relate the motivations to explore to the principles of mercantilism.
  • What technological improvements needed to be made in order for Europeans to undertake these voyages of exploration? Specifically name two or three of these and identify the culture that came up with this invention.
  • Explain the various factors that enabled a small force of Spanish soldiers to defeat Mexico’s greatest empire. You should be considering causes that are technological, biological, and cultural.
  • QUESTION 2)
  • Since you picked up an extra reading today, for your second question you should examine the lives of Galileo and John Wycliffe and explain what they had in common with each other even though one is a man of science and the other is a man of God. Your analysis should run deeper than just saying “they both said things that the Catholic church didn’t like.” Instead your answer should be focusing on issues such as truth, humanism, and power.
