Classwork: China, Imperialism, and Opium!

As I  know we’ve been doing a lot of lecture recently, I’m going to ask you guys to do some information gathering (in order to save both my voice and your sanity).  Please use your textbooks, notes, and the following PowerPoint to help you complete the Imperialism in East Asia Cause and Effect Chart analyzing the effects of Western imperialism in China from 1750 to 1900 CE:

Imperialism, Opium, and China

You will find information on East Asian imperialism in the following texts in the back of the classroom:

  • An Essential Coursebook (Woods), pgs. 411 – 416
  • The World’s History (Spodek), pgs. 544 – 549
  • World Civilizations (Stearns), pgs. 604 – 612
  • Atlas of World History, pgs. 104 – 107

You will have the first half hour of class tomorrow to complete this assignment, so you do NOT need to finish this assignment for homework.
