K.C. #:

4.1.I-III

Key Concept:

In the context of the new global circulation of goods, there was

an intensification of all existing regional trade networks that brought

prosperity and economic disruption to the merchants and governments

in the trading regions of the Indian Ocean, Mediterranean, Sahara, and

overland Eurasia.

European technological developments in cartography and

navigation built on previous knowledge developed in the classical,

Islamic, and Asian worlds, and included the production of new tools,

innovations in ship designs, and an improved understanding of global

wind and currents patterns — all of which made transoceanic travel and

trade possible.

Remarkable new transoceanic maritime reconnaissance occurred in

this period.

Our Topic:

European & Chinese Ocean voyages

Required

Essential Question(s):

 How did the goals and methods of Chinese and European voyages differ?

Material to Master:

·         Key Concepts above

·         Technologies like the Astrolabe & Caravels were key to European success in exploration

·         Official Chinese maritime activity expanded into the Indian Ocean region with the naval voyages led by Ming Admiral Zheng He, which enhanced Chinese prestige.

·         Portuguese development of a school for navigation led to increased travel to and trade with West Africa, and resulted in the construction of a global trading-post empire.

·         Spanish sponsorship of the first Columbian and subsequent voyages across the Atlantic and Pacific dramatically increased European interest in transoceanic travel and trade.

·         Northern Atlantic crossings for fishing and settlements continued and spurred European searches for multiple routes to Asia.

·         In Oceania and Polynesia, established exchange and communication networks were not dramatically affected because of infrequent European reconnaissance in the Pacific Ocean.
