Last night's assignment introduced you to the legal accomplishments of Justinian (Spielvogel 123). How did you answer the two questions:
How do Justinian's laws differ from modern American laws?
Why were the Novels published years after the rest of the Code?
And here's another question: 
How did Justinian's Code compare to Hammurabi's?
If you'd like to really dig into this question, follow the links above for the entire texts of the two law codes.

Now it's time to get started organizing your response to our next assessment, DUE FRIDAY, OCT 5: 

How do the decisions of leaders affect those who follow them? 

Use at least 4 sources to support your arguments

Civics Standard 1.2--Understand the purposes, organization, and function of governments, laws, and political systems.


If you'd like to see a Timeline of the main leaders we've looked at you can open a Prezi  that shows them in order.

If you're ready to get going on your assessment, you may begin with any of these organizational tools. (Taking them in order should get you to your destination in good shape and in time!)

Step 1) To begin your assessment, you may want to review some vocabulary terms for this unit as well as some of the qualities you should think about as you get started making your choices. 
Open Google Doc Template ( CREATE from Template...) called Leadership Qualities and Vocabulary

Step 2) As you think about the leaders we've looked at, you can use this chart to plan your main points and the leaders' decisions that you'll want to focus on.
Open Google Doc Template ( CREATE from Template...) called Planning Your Answer to Assessment 2

Step 3) After making your choices, it's time to explore different ways to talk about them, as well as making choices about what resources to use. This planning guide can help.
