11/21 Fall of the Roman Empire/Review

JQ: How accurate is a comparison between the Roman Empire and the present-day United States?

In Class:

1. Review the fall of the Roman Empire. What are its causes?

2. Discuss your Venn diagram in groups of 3: What are the similarities and differences between the Roman Empire and the United States?  Time permitting: three-person panels will present their diagram to the class and either conclude that the US is on a similar trajectory to the Roman Empire, or that it is not. At some point in the second quarter, you’ll be presenting such a panel to the class. You may choose the topic as we go along.

3. Review for exam. Distribute essay question to be on the test.


Study for the test. Bring in outline for your essay question on a 3 x 5 card.
