Answer these questions based on the reading documents which I uploaded to additional materials.
1. Why do you think Columbus planted the flag of Spain immediately when he landed? What was this intended to symbolize? How did the Spanish exploration of Columbus contrast with the Chinese exploration of Zheng He?
2. Do you think that Columbus felt that Spanish civilization was superior to the native civilization that he encountered on the island? What features do you think Columbus thought ‘civilization’ had? (You should list at least 3 distinct aspects of what Columbus thought â€˜civilizationâ€ to be).
3. What resources did Columbus describe on these islands? Why was that important? How did Spain intend to exploit this discovery?
