Classnotes-

Over time the Christian church began to divide.  In the West the church was focused on Rome and lead by the pope and in the East the church was focused on Constantinople  and lead by the Patriarch.  The Great Schism of 1054 was a debate between those who supported and those who opposed keeping icons (representations of religious concepts/images).  The Pope in Rome decided that it was heresy (a conflict with church beliefs) to allow people to keep their icons.  The religious leaders in Constantinople had no problems with icons.

 

Eventually the church split into two churches in 1054C.E.  This is called the Great Schism of 1054 CE.

The church in the West became known as the Roman Catholic Church – the pope was their leader.  The church in the East became known as the Eastern Orthodox Church – the patriarch of Constantinople was their leader.  The two churches are still separate today.

Activator:

Questions on tic tac toe?

Teaching Strategies:

Classnotes-

After the death of Emperor Justinian, the Byzantine Empire will be in constant decline.  Although there will be time periods of renewal, the Empire will never reach the heights of the Roman Empire or its size or grandeur under Justinian.  Plagues, including the Black Death, struck the Empire, decreasing its population.  The Empire will face threats on all sides, but the most serious threats it faced were Islamic Empires.  During the Crusades, Crusaders even sacked the city of Constantinople as part of the Fourth Crusade.  By the time of the Ottoman Empire, the Byzantine Empire only consisted of the city of Constantinople.  The Ottoman’s captured Constantinople in 1453, and renamed the city Istanbul, which ended the Byzantine Empire.  The end of the Byzantine Empire signaled the end of any attempt to reestablish the Roman Empire, and symbolized the power of the Ottoman Turks to threaten Western Europe.  It will be the Renaissance that will give hope to Western Europe and symbolize the beginning of the dominance and emergence of European states.

Essential Question:

What influence did the Mongols have the broader world?

Standard:

e. Describe the impact of the Mongols on Russia, China, and the Middle East, include: the

role of Chinggis (Genghis) Khan in developing the Mongol Empire.

 

Activator:

How might we know what someone was feeling or sensing or experiencing in the past?  For example do we have to only rely on what is written?

We will discuss the use of sensory figures, as we will work on this for the next 2 days.

 

Teaching Strategies:

Classnotes-

Genghis Khan unified the Mongol tribes, who were nomads from the Eurasian Steppe.  The Mongols developed and mastered rapid cavalry and archery based military tactics.  The Mongol Empire expanded rapidly, and became the largest land empire ever.   On Genghis’s death, the once-united empire divided into several separate khanates, but continued to expand.  One of the areas the Mongols invaded was Russia.  Russia was ruled by a number of different princes and rulers.  The Mongols were only really opposed in the south by the city of Kiev.  This lead to the destruction of Kiev.  Slowly the areas of power shifted north to Moscow where Muscovite princes ruled with the permission of the Mongols.  During this time period the Russian Orthodox Church gained power and prestige and Muscovite princes to the North took power over the traditional power bases in the south.  The Mongols chose to rule Russia from a distance and allow Russia Princes to extract tribute for their Mongol rulers.

 

Students will begin creating a Mongol Sensory Figure.  Today should be totally devoted to Brainstorming.  Students will be told they should focus on the senses (touch, taste, feel, see, and hear) and thoughts.  Students will be encouraged to create several examples on each of these.  For the final sensory figure they will draw their own Mongol and then create the sensory aspects around.  They will be provided with a graphic organizer that helps them on this day.

Time will also be spent providing examples.

Activator:

Teaching Strategies:

Classnotes-

The Mongols eventually conquer China.  In China, Kublai Khan establishes a new Chinese dynasty called the Yuan.  The Mongols adapted to the Chinese political system and remained a separate class with its own laws.  They did however take a more hands on and ingrained role on Chinese culture when opposed to how they ruled in Russia and the Middle East.  Although the Mongols used brutal conquests they fostered and promoted trade along the Silk Road.  Under unified Mongol rule, pax Mongolica (Mongol peace) occurred.  Mongols experienced vast expansion and rapid decline.  Marco Polo was an Italian who worked for Kublai Khan (Mongol leader of China), and whose writings discussed the East.  These writings lead to a fascination and desire to learn about and trade with the East.

 

The Mongols also had an immense influence in the Middle East.  Their violent conquests left millions dead and greatly weakened the existing Islamic caliphate at the time, the Abbasids.    Baghdad did become an important cultural center because of its key location as a crossroads in the Western Mongol lands. 

Students will finish their Mongol Sensory Figure.  Today they will submit and submit their finished version.
