Write a full, typed draft of your DBQ Essay using the materials above, as well as resources I have provided in previous lessons. I have listed links to the most relevant materials below. My main reminder, in addition to everything I generally say in regards to essays, is that you MAKE SURE that your discussion of the causes and effects of the Decline of Rome is IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. Some processes may occur over centuries, while events happen at a particular time. Just be careful to discuss things in the order they occurred and make appropriate connections between them, showing how one thing led to another.
