Book 1 of The Iliad opens with the argument between Achilles and Agamemnon. Compare and contrast the behaviors and the personalities of the two, and pay particular attention to how they interact with one another. What initially leads to the argument between the two, and how does it spiral out of control? Which character (Achilles or Agamemnon) has the more valid argument? Be sure to explain why you think so, and use examples and direct quotes to support your answer.
Compare and contrast Achilles and Hector from The Iliad. For your answer, consider their strengths, weaknesses, motivation, and accomplishments, both on and off the field. Of these two, which one seems the more heroic to you? Why? Provide examples and/or quotes from the text to support your answer.
Hector and Achilles are two of the most important characters from The Iliad, but we meet many other individuals in the pages of Homer’s epic. Consider the other characters we are introduced to, and explain how Homer introduces and develops them. Which of these other character(s) are your favorite in the text? Be sure to provide examples and use direct quotes from the text to support your answer. Also, explain how you would rate this character’s heroism in the epic in comparison to that of Achilles and/or Hector.

Odysseus is a very different kind of hero than the ones we focused on in The Iliad. Compare him to at least two other heroic characters from The Iliad. You can choose any Greek and/or Trojan hero for your comparison. Finally, consider which one of these heroes you think is the most heroic, and explain why. Be sure to use specific examples and/or quotations from the text.
While The Odyssey details the trials and tribulations Odysseus faces on his journey to return home to Ithaca, he is not the only character who undertakes a journey. For this essay prompt, consider the role that journeys play for the other members of Odysseus’ immediate family, Telemachus and Penelope. Think beyond the traditionally accepted definition of a journey—travel from one place to a new destination—and explain what we learn about his son and wife throughout the epic. Think about the journeys each of them make, and explain which one you think has the most difficult journey. Be sure to use specific examples and/or quotations from the text.
When we are first introduced to Menelaus and Helen in The Iliad, Helen’s betrayal of her husband causes a war between the Greeks and Trojans. To this day, Helen continues to be remembered as a harlot and a temptress, but when we meet her in The Odyssey, she has returned to Menelaus. Compare and contrast the Helen you meet in The Iliad with the Helen you meet in The Odyssey, being careful to consider your opinion of her last week with what you think of her now. Has Helen changed, and if so, how? Do you think authors have been fair or unfair with their representation of her? Why/why not? Be sure to use specific examples and/or quotations from the text.
Your initial response should be at least 1,000 words in length

As European powers attempted to colonize new territories in Asia, they were immediately met with resistance from local people and rulers. Although European colonizers were successful in their conquest, it did not mean the end of resistance to their rule. New opposition leaders emerged, armed with various strategies and motivated by different ideologies to fight the European colonizers and achieve independence. However, they also faced challenges brought by the struggle for global dominance between the Soviet Union and the United States during the Cold War. This new challenge was met in different ways by people determined to maintain their freedom and resist foreign intervention.

1) One thing that dominated the long second half of the 20th century, an era historians designate as the Cold War, is fear. Spreading fear (of “the other side,” of the imminent nuclear attack, etc.) across the two opposing ideological blocks was a well-known instrument of ideological compliance. See an example of an instructional video here that targeted elementary school children in 1950s United States.
How far do you think we have come today from this practice of spreading fear in our societies? Do you think that the societies we live in spread different fears (of anything and how? (1 pt)
Using a note taking method of their choosing, students will create notes for the assigned textbook. Each
chapter in the textbook consist of two sections: a chronological survey of the Black experience in the
United States and a series of firsthand accounts that reflect the material covered in the survey section of the
book. Class notes should cover both sections. The class notes will represent 20 per cent of the final grade.
They should be at least 3 full pages (one file) that reflect both sections in each chapter. Students will be
able to post their class notes anytime between 9AM and 11:59PM PST on the day they are due. Class notes
are asynchronous activities. This writing assignment fulfills course objectives 1-4. See guides posted on
Canvas for additional instructions.
