I hope you all have a relaxing, slightly extended weekend! Please make sure to be careful if you’re out traveling about on Saturday; while I sincerely doubt we’ll be snowed in, there’s enough water on the roads to make life exciting (in a bad way) overnight. So– be careful out there, okay?
Now. Over the weekend, you will need to do some work to prepare for your first in-class comparative essay. You’ll need this: Imperial Collapse Comparative Prompt
You may ONLY use the space below the line to write your outline, which you may use to help you write your essay on Monday. You MUST hand-write your outline– no typing allowed, and you may not use the back of the paper.
Use your notes, use your reading on the collapse of empires, and use your textbooks. I would STRONGLY SUGGEST that you stay away from using Internet sources unless you are absolutely confident in their accuracy.
Also: a number of you were absent today. Please remember that unless your absence is excused, you are not eligible to make up the reading quiz you missed today.
