Response guide for Seacole’s
Wonderful Adventures
of Mrs. Seacole in Many Lands
Write a response to the following question:
Mary Seacole’s memoir was a bestseller
in Britain when it appeared in 1857. Given that
most of her readers at the time would have
been white and mostly male, how does
Seacole, as a mixed-race Jamaican woman,
handle her readers’ assumptions and
prejudices?
Your response should be about two pages long, double-spaced, with regular font sizes and
margins. A title page is unnecessary. Submit your response as a file upload on Canvas before the
beginning of class. Late responses will not be accepted.
What is a good response? A successful response will (1.) directly answer the question; (2.) show
solid comprehension of the assigned text; (3.) exhibit clear and error-free writing; (4.) be thoughtful; and
(5.) support its claims with the strongest relevant evidence from the assigned text, cited in footnotes in
proper Chicago style.
How do I cite evidence? Please provide at least two footnotes citing, in response to the
prompt, what you see as the strongest evidence from the assigned text. You want important quotes or
paraphrases that speak directly to the response question. No irrelevant or insignificant textual evidence,
please.
Cite evidence in footnotes (not endnotes) in proper Chicago style. Do not try to format footnotes
manually. Your word-processing program can do them for you. For example, in one recent version of
Microsoft Word, you choose “References” in the toolbar, then “Insert Footnote” with your cursor at the
place in the text where you want to insert the footnote number. If you are using some other word1processing application, there is usually some kind of “Insert” drop-down menu in the toolbar with an
option to choose “Footnote.”
If you are unfamiliar with Chicago style—the style historians most frequently use—it’s not hard
to learn. When citing a book for the first time, format your footnote like this. For subsequent citations, 1
use a shortened form like this. For further questions about Chicago style, please refer to a copy of the 2
Chicago Manual of Style. (Oviatt has it as an e-book.) Or you can refer to the Turabian Quick Guide online,
which is essentially Chicago style.
No “works cited” section is necessary at the end of your response. All the bibliographical
information your reader needs should already be in your footnotes.

Reading Questions essays
The following questions refer to the book chapter “The Mexican Revolution and Its Legacy”
by Edmonds-Poli and Shirk.

1. What disgruntled demographic do the authors credit for “sparking” the Mexican Revo-
lution in 1910 and why were they disgruntled?

2. Who were Francisco Ignacio Madero, Francisco “Pancho” Villa, and Emiliano Zapata
and what demographic did each represent in building a revolutionary coalition? How
did the interests of Madero and Zapata diverge over time?
3. In what ways did the 1917 Constitution attempt to incorporate the agendas of both the
Madero- and Zapata-influenced factions of revolutionary forces (at least in the way it
was written even if not in the way it was practiced)?

4. The Partido Revolucionario Nacional (PNR) was created in 1929 to unify revolution-
ary forces under the control of then President Calles, but the Great Depression then

produced a power shift within the party toward the more progressive forces. What
were the new objectives of the PNR articulated in the 6-year plan drafted at the party’s
second national convention in 1932? How did the presidential election of 1934 advance
this agenda?

5. When the PNR reorganized itself in 1937 into the PRM, what were the four organiza-
tional interest sectors it included in the party’s new corporatist structure?
