Primary Source Exploration

Hello Minischool 8,

As we are exploring the Fall of Empires, we will first explore the fall of Rome as an example. To better understand these concepts we will analyze the following primary sources to deepen our understanding. Please review the 12 primary sources attached and summarize them in the best way you know how and then add your personal reflection/opinion for each. You may type your answer right underneath the document but please do this individually. Thanks and best of luck!

and make sure to include the 6 Historical Thinking Concepts. THE CRASH COURSE QUESTIONS ARE DUE WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26th, 2018. We will work on the Primary Sources for the Fall of Rome on Wednesday. 

Best of luck,

Mr. Murray 

Quotes of the Week

anonymous 

We experience so many negative things in our society and I believe do not get a chance to revel in our individuality and personal achievements. This is why I will be adding positive quotes of the week for all of you to enjoy. We may be doing something with the quote during the week so please take the time to read them. This one is playful and I think encapsulates what the BETA-Minischool is all about. Have a fantastic weekend all!

Stay Gold,

Mr. Murray
