In writing an essay, remember to choose a point of view (thesis), present it clearly and concisely, support it not only with general statements but also with specific examples that prove your thesis.  Do not neglect to bring in evidence from lectures, discussions, and your readings.

 

The title of this course is World Civilizations.  From what you have learned in this course, devise a definition of what it means to be “civilized” by using material from three of the following fields. (You are not limited to these fields, but you must use evidence from at least three of them.)

 

  • Art (g., Art, music, architecture)
  • Trade
  • Food
  • Belief Systems
  • Political apparatus

 

Support your definition by using the examples of two “civilizations” from each of the three chronological periods we have studied (as represented by the first, second and third parts of the course), that is Ancient, Medieval, and Early Modern.

  • You may NOT use examples from the same part of the world in each era (for example, both of your examples from the material in the first third of the course cannot be from China).
  • You may NOT use more than three examples from the same part of the world overall.

 

In writing an essay, remember to choose a point of view (thesis), present it clearly and concisely, support it not only with general statements but also with specific examples that prove your thesis.  Do not neglect to bring in evidence from lectures, discussions, and your readings.

 

Keep in mind the following:

  • Minimums are not maximums, the essay needs to be as long as it needs to be.
  • since this is a take-home examination, spelling and grammar, organization and flow of argument will count.
  • Your essays must utilize information primarily from text, readings, lecture, and discussion.
  • anyone found plagiarizing their answer will FAIL THE COURSE.
  • if you turn in an essay that is the same as someone else’s, you will split the grade.

 

We will not be able answer any questions about the content of the examination either in person or over email.
