Monday, 3/25--
Unit Test (Open note, multiple choice) over basic information you should have collected over the course of the unit in homework and in-class assignments. Have them all complete and ready.
Wednesday, 3/27--
Written Assessment, answering the Essential Question (below) in a well-organized, documented essay. Due by midnight in the Assessment Dropbox.

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 locate the civilizations and their major cities from this unit on a map. I will create a map showing the borders of the 7 areas we've studied in this unit, along with their capital / major cities.I will create a map to show the locations of the empires, kingdoms, and dynasties from this unit.  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? (Due Wednesday, March 27)

Now that we've been looking at WHAT the Ottoman, Safavid, Mogul, Chinese (Ming & Qing), Japanese, Korean, and Southeast Asian were all about, it's time to make sure we know WHERE they were, and how they might have had an impact on each other based on their locations. 

Use a textbook and the map provided to draw the borders and shade the territories of each of the empires from this unit. Page numbers where you can find useful maps in the textbook are shown in the Key of the map. Be sure to shade the Key's boxes to show which colors or shadings represent each of the civilizations. 

Once you've located and shaded each region, add the location of the civilizations capital and other important cities. For example, the Ottoman capital at Istanbul should be shown on your map, but you might also consider including important cities such as Mecca and Medina. Label the major bodies of water that surround the empires, too. Keep in mind that the more information you have on your map, the more information you will have available to you when you take your test on Monday. 

When finished, you'll have a completed map that shows the location of the 7 civilizations that the test will cover on Monday, and that you'll talk about in your assessment that's due on Wednesday. 

NOTE: On the back of your map, you'll find a graphic organizer that you are welcome to work on now if you have time, but it will help you more on the written assessment than on the test, so you don't need to worry about finishing it by Monday. 

What you SHOULD worry about is having all your homework and class assignments completed before Monday's test. If you haven't finished all those, work on them now and/or for homework over the weekend. Organize and review them to make them easier to use during Monday's test.
