Standard: Economics 2.4 -- Understand the economic issues and problems that all societies face.
Question to Consider: How do economic decisions help or hurt a society over the long run?

1) Last night's homework on the Mogul Empire was the last of the readings on Muslim Empires (Chapter 8) and today we'll look at how the three Muslim Empires fit together. But first, a QUIZ over last night's homework. Use your Muslim & Asian Vocabulary chart to help you as you take the quiz. 

NOTE: If you're having trouble with the terms from this chapter, you might benefit from this online flashcard activity. Give it a try to see if it helps. 

2) When finished with the Quiz, open a Google Document Template called "Muslim Empires Comparison". We'll be using this chart in groups to review the last three readings. You can begin while others are still taking the quiz by starting to fill out one of the three columns (Find out from Mr. Knowles which one you should do). 
Once all students are done with the quiz, you'll have a chance to discuss what you've found and to share with others. 

3) HOMEWORK: Before our next class (either tomorrow, or Wednesday, depending on which class period you are in) be sure to read pages 274-279 and complete the next TWO (2) rows on your charts, for both the Ming and Qing dynasties. Be ready with that information when you next come to class.
