Module 10 Online Assignment 1: African History

Purpose:  The purpose of this assignment is to examine the interaction of cultures and civilizations in Africa and the interpretation of history.

Task: First, read chapter 10 in the A History of World Societies textbook (peek at the questions below so you’ll have an idea of what you’re looking for), and view the documentary Africa: A History Denied and answer the focus questionsSecond, now that you’ve read the chapter, viewed the film, and answered the focus questions, answer the following question (consider all parts in your response):

  • Describe the impact and influence of Islam and other foreign cultures on African peoples, kingdoms, and empires.  What is the meaning of the subtitle “a history denied” from the documentary you viewed?  How have the cross-cultural encounters between Muslims and European colonizers led to the shaping and reinterpreting of African history?  Your answers should be drawn from the documentary and textbook, not the Internet.

As you answer all these questions, be sure to cite the source of your information.  In this assignment, it’s sufficient to just include the law number in parentheses (although historians don’t normally use MLA style, it’s fine here).  Third, type your answer and submit the file below (in .doc, .docx, or .pdf format).  Click on “Add File” and attach your file. It’s similar to attaching a file to an email.  You must press the blue “Submit” button to submit your work.  If you have any trouble with this let your professor know immediately!

Criteria for Success: Submit your answer in 250 to 400 words.  Your responses should be well written (correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, and organized using paragraphs).

  • Poor submissions will only answer some of the questions or only part of a question, be less than 250 words, and contain “googled” information that does not come from the reading (terrible submissions will be copied and pasted from the Internet, and be given a zero for violating the Academic Honesty Policy). Poor submissions will receive 1–10 points
  • Good submissions will answer all of the questions with brief, generic responses.  Good responses will receive 10–15 points.
  • Excellent submissions will answer all the questions and every part of the question while containing expanded analysis and elaboration of your thoughts with supporting evidence and examples cited from the reading, either as brief quotations or paraphrases. Excellent submissions will receive 15–20 points.
