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.

Homework:

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