Content Outline

Your Mission:  Convince Queen Isabella (that’s me) to fund your trip to the East Indies


***In presenting your case, be sure to include:

   *The number of ships you will need

   *The number and occupations of the men you wish to have on your crew

   *The type and amount of provisions you will need for your journey (which means you have to estimate how long the journey will be)

   *Maps showing your route



***Make sure your argument is a persuasive one (hint:  Should probably mention bringing glory to Spain, not to mention riches)
