Voices of an Emerging Nation Unit Test Part 2
This test has two parts. Part 1 is computer-scored and should be completed online. Part 2 is the questions below, which you will need to turn in to your teacher. You must complete both parts of the test by the due date to receive full credit on this test. Your answers should all be complete sentences and paragraphs.
1. Several of the works you read in this unit are public documents (documents meant to be distributed and read aloud to the public). Choose two such documents. For each, identify the author, the document’s form, its audience(s), and its purpose(s).
2. In this unit you have read writings by three people who lived at a time when the idea of human equality was widely discussed but who nevertheless experienced enslavement or belonged to families who experienced enslavement: Benjamin Banneker, Olaudah Equiano, and Phillis Wheatley. What critique of the treatment of enslaved people does each writer present, and in what form of writing does he or she present the critique?
3. In Poor Richard’s Almanac, Benjamin Franklin presented aphorisms, some of which are still in use today, to teach values. These aphorisms reflect goals held by Enlightenment thinkers. From the list below, choose three aphorisms. For each, explain what value the aphorism teaches (you may wish to include an example of the aphorism in action) and how the aphorism is tied to Enlightenment thinking.
