Unit 1, Assignment #1 of 3: Hakluyt Reading
Settlement of North America increasingly interested influential people in England during the Tudor dynasty. Read the excerpts from “Discourse Concerning Western Planting” by clicking the Hakluyt link above, and answer the questions below.
1. Identify in your own words the two points Hakluyt mentions most often regarding settlement. In addition, cite passages (not numbers) from the reading above (not the textbook) to support your answer.
2. Why did Hakluyt emphasize these two particular points over others (be sure to consider at least one other point)?
3. Who, specifically, was “Her Majesty” in number ? Who was “King Philip” in number ? What major event pitted the countries of these two monarchs against each other four years later, in 1588, and what was the result and consequence of that event?
4. Do a bit of research on Walter Raleigh. Based on your research, why would Raleigh have requested that this Discourse be written?
