Homework: Women in the Ottoman Empire!

For homework tonight, please read the primary source you received in class today: Women in the Ottoman Empire.  Read it carefully, and consider the material we discussed in class today.  Then, respond to the question at the top of the source on a separate sheet of paper:

What was the role of women in Ottoman society?

Your response should be thoughtful, and demonstrate a thorough understanding of the source.  Remember, however, to consider who is writing the source in question– you might want to do a little research to find out more about the author and their point of view.

If you would like to review some of the material from the documentary we watched today in class, you can find it below:

Unit Three Pacing and Due Dates!

First things first: you have no assigned homework this weekend, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t have stuff to do– check your unit three reading assignment.

Yeah.  It’s a lot.  You’d better get started on it NOW.  It’s going to rain all weekend anyway.  Stay in, watch football (root for the Dawgs, obviously), and get some reading done.

We went over the Unit Three due dates in class today, but just in case you missed them:

  • Topic Selection for Final Paper (Monday, October 12th)
  • In-Class DBQ (Friday, October 16th)
  • Unit Three Reading Quiz (Tuesday, October 20th)
  • Unit Three Vocabulary Assignment (Tuesday, October 20th)
  • Sources Scavenger Hunt (October 23rd)
  • Renaissance and Reformation WebQuest Packet (October 28th)
  • Unit Three Test (Wednesday, October 28th)

And while it’s not a due date for our class, please know that the PSAT will be administered on Wednesday, October 14th.  As sophomores, you’ll all be taking the test.  We’ll be in an altered schedule, so I won’t see any class other than third period that day.
