Starting Your Responses for Parts A1 and A2
In this part of the World History course, you look at the Crusades, which were a critical series of events in European and Middle Eastern history that have effects lasting right up to the modern-day. Here are some suggested questions to help you think through your response. (Please note that the questions are just suggestions to get you thinking. You are in no way required to respond to each one!)
What caused the start of the First Crusade?
What prompted Europeans to raise an army and march all the way to fight on another continent?
Why was it so important to them?
What did the church do to convince Christians to go fight against the Turks?
How did they organize the effort? Did anyone make them promises?
Who actively rallied people to join the army?
Begin your reading, taking notes as you proceed. Later, you can transform your notes into a finished product for submission. Use this location in the online Survey of World History text, published by Acrobatiq:
Your responses need not be written as flowing essays. Simply answer each question on its own. Your answer can be very basic—simply a topic sentence, followed by support drawn from the text. You do not need formal introductions or conclusions.
Label each individual response for Task 3 before you submit the whole Task 3 set (Part A1, Part A2, Part B1, Part B2, Part C).
