We have reached one of the best units of the semester, the growth of the Islamic Empires and the fundamentals of Islam! The notes and content chart earlier do have what you need for the notes, but here are additional materials.
This is the document for the Learning Centers. The first page uses the textbook, the second uses the maps on the page, the third uses an NPR article, and the fourth uses the VICE documentary on the Hajj.
You are going to sign up for one of these Analects, need to go write the number on Coach McDowell’s board (yes, all classes). With your group of 2-3 people, you’ll need write that on the top of your butcher paper. From there, you are to translate it into modern day vocab. How would it sound if you were giving this as advice to follow? Keep that in mind – and label that as your translation, adding it to your butcher paper.
Following that, you’ll need to draw a scene, image, comic, etc. that demonstrates the Analect. Keep in mind the 5 relationships, and try to address one of those in your art. It needs to be large as well! Your classmates are going to vote on which relationship they feel it connects to, so try to be topic and do your best.
Finally, you are going to pick one of these Analects and drawings that was NOT yours, and you’re going to write 1-2 paragraphs to turn in to your respective teacher. In your response, you need to apply the Analect to your life and how you have either lived it or will attempt to.
