My sophomore world history sections took their third exam of the semester today; we have one more left. I could smell their brains burning at the table.
Here is a sample short response question:
In the periodization of 600 C.E. to 1450 C.E., construct a map of the Afroeurasian world that showcases the major centers for trade and exchange. Then, note and label each of the following actors and their movement on your constructed mental map: the Mongols, the plague, and the Crusaders. Furthermore, discuss the political, social, and economic impact each had on world history and the periodization.
