Day 30--

Learning Target ImageWhat will I be able to do when I've finished this lesson?How will I  accomplish this task?  How will I show that I have done this?How well will I have to do this?
 I will be able to explain how the Ottoman Empire and Safavid Empire shared some features, but were very different in other areas. I will collect information about important the Ottoman Empire and Safavid Empire while working with a partner and a small group.I will begin completing a chart, using the textbook and my teammates, to show key features of the Muslim Empires I've read about so far. This is a formative assessment. I need to complete it carefully to provide material I will need later for my summative assessment. 
Standard: Economics 2.4 -- Understand the economic issues and problems that all societies face. 
Essential Question -- 

How do decisions about trade and isolation help or hurt a society in the long run?

Last night's homework assignment involved a reading on the Safavid Empire. If you have QUESTIONS about last night's assignment, please ask them now.

After discussing last night's work as a class, you'll be working in small groups to start organizing information about the two Muslim Empires we've encountered so far. Open a document called Muslim Empires Comparison, and share it with your partners.  Work together with your group members to collect information from the textbook, and enter it into your chart. Talk to group members as you locate the information and type it into your chart. 
NOTE: Groups of 4 work best for this assignment, with 2 members focusing on the Ottoman Empire, and 2 members focusing on the Safavid Empire. Since you're all working on the same chart, you'll all benefit from what each one finds, but having two of you looking for the same information makes it more likely that you find the information you need and gives you someone to talk to as you look for and try to understand the information. Discuss the information with your partner as you type it into your chart. 

You may be able to finish the first two columns on this chart today, or you might need more time. The more you get done in class today, the better. But you'll have time in class to complete it when you add the third Muslim Empire, the Moguls, to the chart next time we are together in class.
