Classwork: Latin American Revolutions!

Using the handout you received at the start of class, please analyze the causes, participants, main events, and long-term effects of the Latin American revolutions in Mexico (1810), Spanish South America, and Brazil.  Your textbooks and the material below should help you to evaluate each revolutions– and don’t forget to note how well you think each revolution represents the ideals of the Enlightenment!

Also, the always-excellent Freeman-pedia has a really useful page on this subject: Latin American Independence!  I strongly suggest you check it out.

You should be ready to hand in your worksheet tomorrow at the start of class– I will (very quickly!) check it for completion and major errors, and will return it to you so that you can study from it as we get closer to the Unit Five Test.
