Written Reflection #1 For this written reflection you will synthesize information from the last five classes. You will write a 1, 500 – 2, 000-word reflection that addresses the question below. This assignment is to be handed in on WEDNESDAY, OCT 3. You must use only your class notes, the book The Silk Roads, and the primary sources discussed in class (on Blackboard). You must include a Works Cited page (a list of the sources you have referred to in your essay) and use in-text citations (see MLA format). Remember: • • • Synthesis requires you to compile information to come to a conclusion. You must compose a response that develops a position on the issue and incorporates perspectives from at least six of the primary sources we read for this topic (cite them appropriately using MLA format). You must also draw upon background knowledge taken from The Silk Roads and from class discussion (textbook information MUST be cited correctly using MLA format). There is no need to use the internet. This is NOT a research paper. World historians organize time into eras. Each era is distinguished by certain characteristics and are usually bookended by dates based on events that had a global significance rather than just a localized one. Explain why historians understand there to be a difference between the Classical Era (600 BCE – 600 CE) and the Post-Classical Era (600 – 1450). Support all your claims with appropriate and substantial evidence. Your essay will be evaluated using the following criteria: A+: This essay exhibits a complex and nuanced understanding of the time period. It illustrates understanding of historical context and causation. It uses the sources appropriately and effectively to support the historical argument being made. Sources are cited correctly. The essay makes connections that illustrate thorough engagement with the material. A and A-: This essay exhibits a thorough understanding of the time period.

World History
Foundations and Classical Era (8,000 BCE - 600 CE)
The beginning of 8000 BC marked the arrival of hunting/collection, and people walked a
short distance. Agriculture began around 8000 BC. J. - C., mainly accidental/experimental basis.
Stone and bone tools were used in the Stone Age. Wood began to exist, from the 8000 to the
Paleolithic Age and the 8000 C. Neolithic Age associated with agriculture. C. Until 2000. C.
8000 or so. C. Begin to domesticate the reproduction of plants and animals, with few diseases.
Agriculture is the main food source using tools/techniques such as water conservancy,
metallurgy, writing, large ocean-going vessels, and wheeled vehicles. At the end of the 600 AD,
most diseases were common, especially plague and smallpox (Latham (2012).
While many people are still hunting/collecting/in some areas are nomads, there is
considerable continuity. In some parts of the world (in the distant north of Siberia), and in some
people (nomads in Central Asia), the climate has been preferred in agriculture/culture.
Agriculture is used in some way and produces food more efficiently than hunting/collection.
People who practice agriculture have more leisure time than hunters/collectors: skilled workers
can have better weapons, strengthen the workforce, create creativity, and ultimately conquer the
neighbors. People live in larger groups in the city. The specialization of employment means that

everyone does not have to work in agriculture; some people may live in the city to protect the
farm, produce weapons, and manage the government, and so on (Latham (2012).
The disease is more important because of agriculture, immigration and people living near
animals. Beginning period: 8,000 Art: Rock Paintings, Architecture: Few houses are temporary
buildings for hunters/collectors, or if agriculture has been completed. Use materials that are easy
to access. Language: Unknown, maybe Indo-European. Final Period: 600 AD Religion: Most of
the most important monotheistic religions were created (Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism,
Confucianism, and Taoism). Art: mainly religion, especially Christians. Architecture: The city is
designated by the government and religious large buildings (churches, monasteries, temples,
pyramids).People live in small communities. Units, sometimes between farms and nomadic
groups, may be due to land dominance to obtain fauna (Latham (2012).
End of the period: People lived in these two cities and peasants in AD 600. The various
forms of government-led empire: kings, emperors, etc., are almost all types of "monarchy."
Religion was closely related politics (China, Roman Empire, Africa, etc.). The struggle between
the empires involves land, ensuring the slaves of the conquered people, and defending rural areas
outside the city. Gupta (India) and Rome (Europe) are the first. Hunting/harvesting and
agriculture are the main food sources, and there is little evidence of intergroup/low trade
interactions. End of the period: Some hunting and gathering are under 600 AD, but most
agriculture is a source of food. A lot of trade: land: silk routes and trans-Saharan trade, Indian
Ocean trade is connected to Asia, Africa, and Europe (Latham (2012).
The use of coins and coins for the economic exchange of luxury goods applies to higher
layers (Chinese silk, spices of India and islands, exotic animals in Africa, etc.). They are luxury
goods, beginning at this time: more than 8,000 men in the hunting/collection society hunted large

wild animals and cared for animals; the female identity of food and the care of the family usually
played the same role. There are no real races, ethnic issues or economic classes. Period: 600 EC.
In the agricultural community, men work on the land, and women often live at home, taking care
of their homes and small gardens. The woman lost her status at the time. He cannot inherit land
or property, cannot divorce or make a court decision. In different empires, ethnic and cultural
differences abound, and economic classes are created in cities.
Post-Classical Era (600 CE - 1450)
The classic environmental era we bring the main lines of civilization, religion, and trade. But
what happens when all major world powers fall? This is a post-classic era. The world's great
powers come from unexpected places. Some powers are similar to before and after (Byzantine,
China). But the main actors in the post-classical era came from countries that were completely
backward. The second is from the foothills of the Central Asian steppe. This time I called
Muslims and Mongolians. This is not all, but it almost summarizes the basics. (Of course, trade,
immigration, religion, and work are important...) The first classic postal period accounted for
20% of the exam. These ages are now more valuable than the first two. Although the Americas
are still separate, the period was characterized by deepening and expansion of the human region
or a new and old interactive network.
The result is an unprecedented increase in wealth concentration and cross-cultural
communication. Innovations in transportation, government policy, and business practices have
promoted the expansion and development of retail chains, and retail chains have been used as
transits for cultural, technological and biological communication between and among different
societies. Pastoralists and nomadic groups have played a key role in creating and maintaining
these networks. Expanding the network will help increase interregional debt while maintaining

regional diversity. The Prophet Muhammad advocated Islam at the beginning of this period,
which is a new and important monotheistic religion. It spread rapidly through trade practices,
wars and the diffusion of features of this period. The deepening and expanding networks of
human interactions within and between regions have led to the spread of bad cultures,
technologies and biology, and differences between different societies.
Transportation technologies and improved business practices have increased trade
volumes and increased the g...
