Like the Unions in Paterson, New Jersey assessment, this question gauges whether students can source and contextualize a document. Students must first examine a passage from Topsy-Turvy Land, a book by Samuel and Amy Zwemer designed to teach American children about the differences between the United States and the societies of the Arabian Peninsula. They must then determine which fact can help them evaluate the reliability of the account. Strong students will be able to explain how Samuel Zwemer's work as a Christian missionary in the Arabian Peninsula (Fact 1) could affect how he depicts the region.
