Chapter 15 Sec 1 + 3 Notes & Reading Questions

So, I picked 8 questions for you that I thought were relevant and straightforward. They are only related to Sections 1 and 3. I made it so you can try again if you make a mistake, but you wont get full credit, and the more times you try, the less points you will get. Once you have submitted the answer, it should provide the explanation and correct answer. Let me know if you have any issues with it. I value your feedback TREMENDOUSLY!

Also, you guys asked for some more guidance on what to focus on for your notes on the textbook. So, as requested, below are some general themes and ideas I am interested in you guys thinking about and focusing on…

• Change and continuity in religion, specifically the growth of Islam (foreign) and Hinduism (native) and the conflicts and connections that developed between them, and why they became popular while Buddhism and Jainism declined
• The way that political power is connected with religion, how it’s sometimes used by political leaders to gain power and sometimes a threat to existing political leaders
• The role that ethnicity played in the above, looking at the different ethnic groups within India and migrating two India, and the way that religion and ethnicity are often intertwined

Omar ibn Said (1770–1864) was a writer and Islamic scholar, born and educated in what is now Senegal, who was enslaved and transported to the United States in 1807. There, while enslaved for the remainder of his life, he wrote a series of works of history and theology, including a posthumously famous autobiography. Omar ibn Said was not “a slave”. Omar ibn Said was a scholar who was enslaved. Slavery was his condition, his circumstance, but not his identity. Always remember this when learning about and thinking about slavery. Extend the same recognition to all men and women who were enslaved by other men and women.

During the Ming Dynasty, China’s economic strength was on full display in the Indian Ocean in the form of trade missions led by the admiral #ZhengHe. The Chinese trade junks rivaled any contemporary Western ships by leaps and bounds. Even after the end of the trade missions, China did not cease to be a major economic power. Today, China is an economic force to be reckoned with, and as we saw from the news this morning, with a #TradeWar beginning the USA 🇺🇸 and China 🇨🇳, they are not afraid to put those junks back in the water.
Marches were held today across the country and across the world to speak out against gun violence in schools and throughout American society. Regardless of whether or not you support government action to end the plague of gun violence in America, recognize that we are witnessing history unfolding. You are living through it. “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” #MarchForOurLives
Happy Paddy’s Day! The history of Ireland 🇮🇪 goes all the way back before the Neolithic Revolution so it does, and connects to much of what we’ve been learning this year, as well as much of what you’ll be learning next year. St Patrick was a fifth-century Romano-British Christian missionary and who is most remembered for spreading the message of Christianity to the pagan isle ☘️. This picture was taken up in County Antrim in the north of Ireland, the part that’s still under British rule. It’s been a long back and forth to say the least, and we’ll be learning a bit about it in class this year and next. 🇮🇪
