Today we start with a VIDEO dealing with last night's homework assignment on Southeast Asia and the Spice Trade.

After the video, we'll look at the impact of outside nations and cultures on the empires and civilizations we've been looking at in this assessment cycle. Open a Google Doc Template called "Outside influences" to collect information about the groups who wanted to access these civilizations for trade, and work with a partner to complete it. 

HOMEWORK: If you have any late assignments for this assessment cycle, take this opportunity to finish them. 

Also, your vocabulary test is on Friday. Start reviewing the terms now so you're ready to do your best. The links below may help. 
Or, get started on your assessment, due Monday. The Assessment assignment itself, or an accompanying resource page may help you get started.
