World History 2 – Points Recovery (Mr. Stewart)

Discovery School World History 2
G. Palacios, Principal Mr. Ian Stewart

Points Recovery – Greece and Rome Units

Up to fifty exam points recovery can be earned for complete answers to the following. Students may choose to do either one of these prompts, both of these prompts, or neither of these prompts.

THE MAXIMUM CREDIT ON ANY EXAM WILL BE 100 POINTS. For example, if a student currently has a score of 65 on a test and earns 40 points on the recovery activity, the student will “only” receive a 35-point bump.

Question One – Ancient Greece

Focusing on the achievement of Hippocrates, explain the level of medical knowledge that existed during the time of the ancient Greeks. Your answer should give a rundown of the medical theories of that time and give some explanations about why their knowledge wasn’t better than it was.

DO NOT TRY TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION BY GOING TO JUST ONE SOURCE.

Question Two – Ancient Rome

Was there anything the Roman Empire could have done to both maintain its size/greatness AND prevent its own collapse, or was the fall of the Western Roman Empire inevitable?

Points will be granted based on the quality and depth of your analysis. There isn’t a “right” answer here, but there is a “right” way to go about answering the question.

DO NOT TRY TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION BY GOING TO JUST ONE SOURCE.

For both questions, the following condition applies . . .

PLAGIARIZED WORK (EITHER FROM THE INTERNET OR A CLASSMATE) WILL RESULT IN ZERO CREDIT WITH NO SECOND CHANCE TO EARN EXTRA CREDIT . . . EVER.

Before it’s time to have a relaxing break, students will be taking an assessment on Tuesday that will cover these major themes:

  1. The Byzantine Empire: the importance of Constantinople, the split between Eastern Orthodox Christianity and Roman Catholicism, and the influence of the Byzantine Empire on Russia.
  2. Why the geography of the early Russian empire was both a blessing and a curse.
  3. The conflict for power between church and king in the early Middle Ages in Western Europe.
  4. Feudalism/Manorialism – What is it? Why did it come into being? (both in Europe *and* Japan)
  5. The spread of Islam and the growth of trans-Saharan trade in the seventh and eighth centuries.

Review will take place today (Monday).

Italian Renaissance Masks

Venetian masks are a centuries-old tradition of Venice, Italy. The masks are typically worn during the Carnival ( Carnival of Venice), but have been used on many other occasions in the past, usually as a device for hiding the wearer’s identity and social status. The mask would permit the wearer to act more freely in cases where he or she wanted to interact with other members of the society outside the bounds of identity and everyday convention. It was useful for a variety of purposes, some of them illicit or criminal, others just personal, such as romantic encounters.

Venetian masks are characterized by their ornate design, featuring bright colors such as gold or silver and the use of complex decorations in the baroque style. They can be full-face masks like the Bauta, or eye masks like the Columbina.

Students have finished creating the mold of their faces. They are now ready to build additional details and decoration to their masks. Students have been asked to print out an example of the type of mask they are going to be creating. Examples must be pasted in their sketchbooks and will be revised before they begin to work.

World History 2 – Sept. 25 through Sept. 29

Students will be taking MAP testing on Monday and Wednesday that conflicts with World History, so we have a three-day week together.

This week we will continue our exploration of the European Middle Ages.

Tuesday – The struggle for power between church and king.

Thursday – The Crusades.

Friday – Effects of the Crusades, part one.

THERE WILL BE A UNIT ASSESSMENT NEXT WEEK (PROBABLY TUESDAY) THAT WILL COVER THE BYZANTINE EMPIRE, KIEVAN RUS, AND THE EUROPEAN MIDDLE AGES.
