Students will select a commodity prominent in Atlantic trade (such as sugar, tobacco, rum, chocolate, coffee, or furs) and write a paper summarizing its role in the Atlantic economy. The paper will indicate that commodities impact on at least two different groups of people in the Atlantic World and explain whether it was or was not part of the Columbian Exchange. The paper should be prepared using APA style. All sources must be cited.

The paper must be two to three pages in length (not including title and reference pages), and formatted according to APA style. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar, in your online course.
