For this assignment you will use Manifest Destiny (Chapter 12)(https://www.americanyawp.com/text/12-manifest-destiny/) from the textbook (pay special attention to “Section IV: Texas, Mexico, and the United States”) and the maps embedded below to create a 2-minute speech and PowerPoint slideshow highlighting your main points, then record a video of you delivering the presentation.
First, write a script for your speech. A 2-minute presentation is the equivalent of text comprising approximately 250-300 words, double-spaced, 12 pt. Times New Roman or similar font.
Second, build a 3-5 slide presentation that clearly articulates the case for your position. You may write in character as a person from the 19th century, but this is not required See the Starting a Presentation, Photo Essay, or Video page and the Sample Final PowerPoint Presentation (Woman’s Suffrage) for help with structuring and designing your presentation. When creating your slideshow, pay close attention to the proper layout of each slide—balancing text with visual images from the maps—as well as creating slides for an introduction, conclusion, and Works Cited.
Click on the links/maps below. Either download the maps themselves or take screenshots of the maps (or parts of maps) that are relevant to your argument. Be sure to incorporate at least THREE of the maps listed below in your presentation to better illustrate your point.
Using the written script you create, practice presenting and explaining this information, then record video of your presentation.
Upload 2 things for your assignment:
Your video
A copy of your PowerPoint slides in the assignment box.
Students whose last names begin with N-Z will play the role of a Mexican government official who believes the boundary should be the Nueces River.
When writing your speech keep the following things in mind:
Effective map analysis involves understanding what you are looking at. One effective way to do this is to locate key features (cities, rivers, mountain ranges, etc.) to better understand what the maps are telling you. For example: since the war between the US and Mexico started over a dispute between the southern boundary of Texas, you’ll need to locate the two rivers in question—the Nueces River and the Rio Grand River (also referred to as Rio del Norte or Rio Bravo)—and trace their extent to see how establishing one or the other as the international boundary would affect the size of the territory claimed by each country.
When giving your speech, be sure to make specific references to the map images you used on your slides.
When determining the points you want to make in your speech, consider things like:
What advantages was your character’s side trying to achieve by claiming that boundary?
What historical claims were used to justify one boundary versus the other?
How do land claims of Native Americans factor into this debate?
If your side wins the dispute, what does your country plan to do with that territory?

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
