This question assesses students' historical knowledge but does so in a way that transcends the rote recall of facts. To know history is to see connections between events across time. This assessment asks students to draw on their knowledge of the past to construct an argument about how the imprisonment of Filipinos by the American military in 1901 is connected to both the explosion of the USS Maine and the popularity of Social Darwinism.
